Do I need a hydration backpack?
If you ride your mountain bike on off-road trails, then you will want to take some fluid with you. While many MTBs have bottle cages if you want more than 750ml of then you will need a hydration backpack. They are also useful for carrying extra clothing, tools and food.
How much fluid can I carry?
Hydration backpacks are supplied with a 1.5, 2 or 3 litre bladder to carry fluid. A larger bladder will enable you to choose how much you carry with you on specific rides as you don’t need to use the whole capacity. A hose with a mouthpiece and tap allows you to drink while you ride.
How much kit can I carry in a hydration backpack?
This very much depends on the model - a classic CamelBak will only have room for a trail tool and thin layer while an alpine style pack will have room for tools, spares, food waterproofs and post ride clothing. In addition to this some hydration packs have compression straps that allow you to vary the capacity and carry straps for carrying extra kit, like body armour.
What size hydration pack do I need?
This will depend on the type and length of ride.
Can I ride technical terrain with a hydration pack?
While all our hydration packs are designed for serious off-roading some are more suited to riding steep technical terrain. Look for a pack with a horizontal or lumbar bladder and a substantial waist strap for riding more challenging, enduro style trails. as these offer a lower centre of gravity for increased stability.
Can I use a hydration pack for commuting?
Many hydration packs feature reflective strips and a tab for a rear light so make a great commuting packs too.
Are the hydration bladders easy to clean?
Yes, hydration pack bladders tend to have a wide opening so you can easily get your hand inside to give them a good clean.
