Spyshot: Ergon BE1 – a race-specific backpack?

During the Canyon presscamp in France, we spotted a brand-new backpack on the backs of the Ergon-sponsored team riders. Here are the first details of this intresting, race-specific backpack.

The backpack was developed after feedback from the Canyon Factory Enduro Team: On most races, they wished for an smaller backpack than the Ergon BA3.

Injured, but still in a good mood, Fabien Barel presented us with his backpack prototype. The idea: Reduction to the essentials, less weight and a low center of gravity.

The backpack is divided into two parts: Tools and snacks in the upper section, and the hydration bladder below.

When racing with both a fullface and an open helmet, a secure fit of the helmet on the backpack is essential. The new, divided design is intended to exactly ensure this.

Auf Anfrage des Teams nicht immer so großer Rucksack wie BA3, wichtig gute Helmbefestigung.

According to Ergon, the new backpack will be officially announced at the Eurobike exhibition, at the moment pro athletes are testing the prototypes and the developers are working on small improvements. We’ll keep you updated!
