Freedom and adrenaline — that’s what Enduro mountain biking is all about. For high-speed, challenging descents, your gear has to provide the right protection. Our Enduro backpacks have integrated protectors for crash protection.
FEATURES AND FUNKTIONALITY
When aiming high and going full-speed downhill, during lung-burning climbs and exhilarating descents at breathtaking speeds – you’ve got to be able to rely on your gear. In addition to back protectors, enduro packs offer all kinds of useful features to get you ready for what awaits you.
On difficult terrain and fast descents, a protector is a safeguard in the moment of impact after a fall. At the same time, it shouldn’t restrict your freedom of movement. ORTEMA is an absolute specialist in this field and provides the multi-impact protectors for our Enduro backpacks. These protectors can take an impact and then return to their original form so they don’t need to be replaced. All of our protectors are TÜV/GS certified and meet highest quality standards.
Tool Compartment / Bike Pump Compartment
Some VAUDE bike backpacks feature an extra tool compartment at the front for fast and easy access to your most important items. An additional loop will also secure even larger bike pumps.
All VAUDE bike backpacks come with a rain cover. Whenever the need arises, just pull the cover over your pack to protect your gear from dirt and rain.
In addition, there are small recesses in the lower part, where the hip fins can be looped through and the rain cover fits perfectly and securely on the packsack.
Each rain cover is additionally equipped with a strap for flashing lights. This keeps you visible even in bad weather.
Helmet holder and protector attachment
VAUDE Enduro Backpacks come with a helmet holder and protector attachment that is either stored in a small pack sack or integrated into the design of the pack. The different backpack models offer different attachment options.
A protector and a pack work together to create one functional unit. They ensure an optimal solution in terms of safety and functionality. With our partner ORTEMA (Orthopädietechnik Markgröningen), we have an expert in protective gear at our side. Their expertise in product development, detailed medical knowledge, and technical know-how flow directly into the designs.
The CB1 LIGHT is a very compact, lightweight, and safe back protector that features a multi-layer construction and provides an optimal fit to the individual shape of your back. The protector can withstand multiple impacts thanks to its specialized foam, providing maximal protection for your spine. VAUDE integrates the protector into its Moab Series, which was specifically engineered for mountain bikers.
We also use protectors from SAS-TEC, which offer unique advantages in terms of safety and comfort:
- Multi-impact capable: the protector does not have to be replaced after a fall. After a maximum service life of 5 years, from the first use, the protector must be replaced.
- Maximum safety: tested according to DIN standard and certified by TUEV Süd
Height adjustment of the hip belt of protector backpacks
Based on different back geometries with the same body height, the height adjustment of the hip belt is an anatomically and orthopaedically important basic requirement. The adjustable hip belt positions the back protector close to the spine, stabilizes the lumbar spine and additionally relieves the intervertebral discs.
The hip belt must rest on the upper edge of the pelvic bone.
