Find the right sustainable bike backpack
Transport objects on a bicycle or e-bike and then continue on foot? No problem with a bike backpack ! Like a bike bag, some backpacks can even be attached directly to the bike. When you park the bike, you simply take it off and strap it to your back. This means everything is optimally stored and transported quickly - whether by bike or on foot.
But finding the right bike backpack is not easy. There is now a wide range of backpacks for bikes, but not everyone is suitable for every riding style and area of use. In our guide to sustainable bicycle backpacks we want to introduce you to the different models and make the decision a little easier. After all, you don't want to buy the next best backpack, you want to find a model that suits your needs. Our requirement: sustainability. We only offer sustainable backpacks , bags andaccessories . Because we want to use our products to protect the environment that we love to hike and drive through.
You should choose your sustainable bike backpack based on the following aspects:
Which bike backpack is right for you?
Depending on the route and training, you will need a different backpack. Bicycle backpacks with a small volume of 10 to 15 liters are ideal for shorter tours and light luggage. However, if you are planning a longer trip, your backpack should have more storage space. The backpacks for longer distances often have a volume of 20 liters and of course they also weigh more. This should correspond to your training level. With roll-top backpacks like the Hajo backpack from UCON ACROBATICS or the Commuter Day Pack from Ortlie b, the volume can be adjusted depending on the luggage.
Depending on your tour and taste, it may be important to you how many outside pockets your backpack has and whether these can be completely closed with a zipper or whether a net is the better alternative for you. Some backpacks also have extra gadgets such as a helmet holder or separate compartments for tools and a hydration bladder. We also offer matching helmets from THOUSAND .
Stay dry in any weather with the right bike backpack
Some only drive on nice days, others in all weathers. You should also consider this when buying a bicycle backpack. If you can skip trips in bad weather, your backpack doesn't need to be so well protected. However, if you often travel for several days, good protection with a water-repellent backpack is mandatory. Such all-weather backpacks have a waterproof coating and usually have an integrated rain cover. You should also keep in mind that a waterproof backpack also protects well against dust and dirt. So if you not only travel on well-maintained roads, but also like to drive through forests and meadows, a well-protected backpack is also recommended.
The backpack should fit comfortably when you carry it on your back. A well-padded back and adjustable carrying straps are therefore very important. Your new backpack should fit you and your bike. Therefore, take the time to choose the right backpack and you will enjoy it more. If the item you ordered does not suit you or your bike, you can make use of our return policy and fill out a return application.
A backpack for every occasion?
If you're wondering whether you need several backpacks - one for training, one for work and a third for touring: Of course, a backpack has to be tailored to the respective situation. However, as long as you are not an ambitious touring cyclist or athlete, a daypack with a volume of 12 to 18 liters is completely sufficient. These backpacks are well protected against rain and dirt and have space for the most important things. However, as soon as you have higher demands on your own tours, you should choose a more special backpack. With us you will find the best bicycle backpacks in many different categories and of course always at the best price. All of our products are sustainably produced.
