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.
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.
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!
