The right Biking Backpack

When choosing a backpack, you’ve got to consider what it will be used for.
Depending on the terrain and what kind of an adventure you’ve got planned, there will be different requirements in terms of material, workmanship, design and features. Each one of our backpacks is specialized for its own type of activity.

Also very important for the right decision is the heart of the backpack: the back system – all information about it in this chapter.


Asphalt, gravel road or single trail – where do you prefer to ride?

Biker backpacks differ in many respects. Before buying, you should therefore think about what you want to use the backpack for. If you are on the single trails, you need reinforced protection. For longer tours you need enough storage space and for endurance rides it should be the lighter version. According to the requirements, the model designs differ.

Each backpack is designed for a specific application, all features and functions are geared to it. Of course, you can always use the backpack for other activities. However, it offers optimal functionality in its specific area of application.

MTB Backpacks

If you love to mountain bike, if it’s the challenge and the adrenaline rush you need, then we’ve got the high performance bike packs you’ll want. Our All Mountain gear will let you take on the challenge of both uphill and downhill biking, on dirt roads and single tracks. Enduro is focused more on the downhill ride.

Hip Bags

Who wants to take only the bare essentials, is well advised with the hip bags. The Moab Hip Pack, for example, offers space for a water bottle, tools, spare tube and valuables, among other things.

Lightweight backpacks

Sporting performance, experience and enjoyment – for many mountain bikers and road cyclists, this is the ideal mixture to switch off from the hectic daily work routine. Together with friends it is even more fun. On paved roads it goes quickly and so soon any stress is forgotten.

E-biking is in, and it’s a whole new type of biking experience. When it comes to your gear, an e-bike has some special demands. VAUDE offers products specifically designed for e-biking.

Our e-bike backpacks are designed for the All Mountain segment and provide, in addition to standard features for all riding, some extra e-bike features. For example, a separate compartment for your spare battery on longer tours, a special storage compartment for your display and your battery key, and extra padding for the suspension system.



For those who are looking for a backpack that is suitable for the city, the bike ride, sunshine and rain at the same time, we have developed multiuse backpacks, for example, the Proof 22. With its waterproof welding, laptop compartment and modern wrap closure, it feels comfortable both in the big city and on the mountain.

Bike City Backpacks

Biking is a part of your lifestyle: whether you’re into urban riding, recreational cycling or commuting in all kinds of weather, the VAUDE City Packs are made just for you.

Every VAUDE backpack has a hangtag that helps you recognize what activity the pack was designed for.



Women have their own specific needs when it comes to backpack design. Our women’s backpacks are specifically engineered to meet these needs.

Shoulder straps

In general, women’s backs are narrower than men’s in the shoulder area. To make sure that the shoulder straps don’t chafe uncomfortably or pinch at the front, we’ve designed our women’s backpacks with s-shaped shoulder straps. This design makes the pack especially stable and keeps it from sliding around on your back. In addition, the height of the sternum strap can be adjusted to allow for the best fit possible.

Torso length

Women are an average of 10 cm shorter than men – they have a shorter torso and their shoulders are usually narrower. VAUDE women’s backpacks are designed to have a shorter back and are also smaller and narrower than the equivalent versions for men. This guarantees an optimal fit.


The female pelvis is wider and shallower than that of men. The waist straps of our women’s backpacks are therefore specially shaped and slightly wider in order to provide optimal comfort.


The volume of a pack in liters doesn’t translate to the load that it carries – for example, a 25 liter pack doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good for a 25 kg load. The number of liters tells you the volume that it can hold – the size of the pack. Note that these are maximum measurements – a pack isn’t square and you can’t determine the volume based on its specific dimensions. The pack’s suspension system and design determines how many kilos it can comfortably carry.

Calculating the volume

The volume of a backpack is determined using the criteria of the ASTM F2153-01 standard test method. This standard test method specifies that all of the pack’s compartments are filled with small plastic balls. All of these balls are then emptied into a container with a scale on the side. This standard test method is used by all well-known backpack manufacturers.
