ZERO RH + COMMUTING/TOURING
Zero RH+ is the official apparel and accessory sponsor of Danish powerhouse cycling team Saxo-Tinkoff Bank. When stars Chris Anker Sorensen and 2012 Vuelta de Espana winner Alberto Contador are transferring between stages in the grand tours, you can bet they're portaging gear in one of several options from Zero RH+ -- including the versatile Crit Backpack.
Sure, the Crit Backpack is an excellent option in getting a spare change of clothes and your riding gear from bus to hotel, but it's also ideal for criteriums - hence, its appropriate name. If you're the type who prefers to get your crit warmup on your ride to the circuit, you'll still need to be able to shuttle your extra bottles, that change of clothes, a pair of podium shoes, and anything else you might need for the afternoon. The Crit Backpack offers plenty of compartmentalized storage for each, without compromising a comfortable fit while you're en route. Zero RH+ also had the foresight to include three highly visible reflective panels on the rearward-facing bits of the pack to ensure a high degree of visibility should you be heading home after dusk.
The Zero RH+ Crit Backpack features four compression straps to minimize the pack's profile, and a built-in waist strap to better balance the load on your back. It comes in a single size in Black with red accents.
