Vaude North Shore 28 Backpack
Tough, comfy and ready to rumble! Designed specifically for mountain biking. From speedy single track, to hairball downhill to technical bike parks the Northshore 28 is made to handle it all. The Proflex suspension system, originally made for alpine climbers, is an integral feature in this extra lightweight, flexible, ergonomic, cycling backpack. Vaude omitted a backplate allowing full freedom of movement while wearing the pack. The light, specially curved aluminum frame ensures reliable stability and can be quickly removed if required. The back panel conforms to the curve of the spine and the viscoelastic foam prevents pressure spots. These features enhance the wearing and carrying comfort of the pack. The helmet holder is nice when you’re not on the trail. The specific straps for downhill protectors are easy to use even with gloves on. The side compression straps keep your pack compact. The side mesh pockets and front outer pocket with mesh organizer make it easy to keep all your gear, big or small, just where you like it. A convenient opening for an optional hydration system will keep you from getting too thirsty. The padded MP3 pocket and headphone-eyelet let you rock out on the trail. The reflective elements and safety light attachment boost your visibility. A handy raincover will keep your pack dry when the sky open and the trails turn to mud. From Moab redrocks to Humboldt redwoods, this is the pack you want if you came to ride. Need extra room for more gear? Take a look at our bike racks and bike panniers.
