Unlike backpacks designed for running, bike backpacks have a chest strap instead of a hip strap and a smaller upper compartment for greater comfort when wearing a helmet. Among our range, you'll find small, minimalist daypacks with only 6 litres capacity, as well as much larger models with up to 30 litres, which also offer plenty of room for equipment for longer rides. Our best sellers are between 10 and 20 litres, as this size is ideal for longer day trips in the mountains. Almost all backpacks can accommodate a water bladder and tube, and many models give you the option of attaching a helmet or protectors to the outside. Which bag type is best for your own needs depends very much on personal preferences.
