The mission of the Design & Innovation Award is to shape the bicycle world in a positive way. It also serves as a forum for creativity, visionary ideas as well as the industry’s most innovative products. More than 40 experts from 10 countries joined this year’s event to test, analyze and judge the best and most innovative products of 2016 in Kronplatz/San Vigilio – Dolomites. The Award recognises either outstanding product design and function, or innovation that sets a new standard and inspires future product generations and forward-thinking approaches.
CamelBak Skyline 10 LR
CamelBak is a name synonymous with hydration packs, and their new LowRider Collection pushes performance further with a new harness system. The pack sits low on the back, lowering the centre of gravity for more stability on fast and aggressive rides. The Skyline is ready for big day adventures too, complete with a 3 L Antidote Lumbar Reservoir and 7 L of storage space for trail essentials. The magnetic hose clip makes stowage intuitive and secure, and there are additional straps for armour or a second helmet. Weighing only 869 g, the Skyline is the perfect pack for those who want to head out into the hills without feeling burdened by an unwieldy pack….
