Anyone who was fortunate enough to have an appointment with Deuter at EUROBIKE certainly went home satisfied – and not just by the Viennese sausages and great coffee. Amongst the new 2016 products on display was the redesigned Deuter Attack backpack, which marked one of the stand’s highlights.

Having undergone a fundamental redesign for 2016, the Deuter Attack now features a brand new form to increase comfort while carrying and to integrate the back protector into the whole bag. Made from the familiar SAS-Tec foam, the Attack’s protector hardens upon impact and unites comfort with maximum absorption of energy.

Der Deuter Attack wurde für 2016 gründlich überarbeitet.
The Deuter Attack has had a serious redesign for 2016.
Das gefütterte Brillenfach ist groß genug, um darin bequem Goggles unterzubringen.
The lined glasses compartment has enough space to house your goggles.
Bei den Spannvorrichtungen kommen Haken zum Einsatz, die eine einfache Handhabung ermöglichen sollen.
The straps for tightening the sides are hooked into place and easy to use.

The waistbelt is now higher and more central to ensure a snugger fit on the body and prevent any unwanted motion. The new model has naturally retained the familiar features from the previous version, such as the attachment for a full or open-face helmet as well as the glasses compartment with enough space for goggles.

Auch ein Fullface lässt sich unkompliziert am Rucksack befestigen.
Even full-face helmets can easily be attached onto the backpack.
Das Tragesystem wurde komplett neu designt.

Die SAS-Tec-Platte soll für Schutz sorgen und durch die Löcher dennoch etwas Belüftung zulassen.
The SAS-Tec plate provides protection while still ensuring ventilation due to the holes.
Auch Helm und Protektoren lassen sich leicht außen befestigen.
Helmets and protectors can be slotted onto the outside of the backpack with ease.

For 2016, the new Attack will come in four sizes, ranging from the small ‘standard’ 20-litre option, a women’s specific SL model with 18 litres, a 16-litre ‘Enduro’ version and a roomy ‘tour’ version with 28 litres of storage.
With a recommended retail price of 179 €, the Deuter Attack will be on the market from March 2016.
