Getting a puncture is a common occurrence on longer bike trips. So, when it inevitably happens, it’s good to have a pump and tool kit handy. The new Trans Alpine’s clever compartment design makes it quick and easy to fix a puncture. There’s a dedicated external-access compartment for your bicycle pump and a small internal compartment designed to accommodate tools. And the new Trans Alpine series comes with a new-style helmet holder. It clips into two special rings on the outside of the pack for easy helmet stowage. The great thing about this new system, is that you can still access the contents of your pack with your helmet in the holder. The new Trans Alpine now also has even better carry comfort. Reduced back padding contact surface results in superior ventilation. Plus, the shoulder straps flex and bend with your every move to prevent load wobble even when the terrain gets technical.
