thoraXman / ergonomic hydration pack


„thoraXman“ is a hydration pack specifically designed to fulfill the ergonomic needs of a man. Its weight is placed at the upper rear and the shoulders in contrast to commonly available hydration packs which cover the full length of the back. This allows for more flexibility and freedom of movement of the torso, which is extremely useful for extreme mountain biking. The unique ventilation system of “thoraXman” enables air circulation through two notches in the rear of the bag and the drink container which prevents the accumulation of heat and reduces transpiration.
