Kriega Announces New TRAIL9 and TRAIL18 Backpacks

Serious adventure bike and trail riders have been attracted by Kriega’s reputation and world-renowned build quality for years; the introduction of the TRAIL range sees a pair of backpacks with specifications more closely tailored to their demands.

The TRAIL9 is the most compact adventure backpack ever produced by the British specialists, and is favored by riders for whom weight, speed and agility is key and comfort is essential. The bigger TRAIL18 shares much of the same class-leading features, but has twice the load-carrying capacity.

Both the TRAIL9 and TRAIL18 have two main compartments: one is fully-waterproof with a roll-top, the other has zip-access and is designed to take a choice of different removable hydration reservoirs. A distinctive, elastic, hexagonal Hypalon net adds additional storage.

Kriega used their 20-plus years of experience and the feedback from elite-level, extreme enduro champions in the development of their TRAIL backpacks, and thanks to this they have no hesitation in offering a 10-year guarantee with the new packs.

It wouldn’t be a Kriega backpack without the firm’s revolutionary Quadloc-Lite harness. This design is a vast improvement over traditional straps because the weight of the pack is taken by the rider’s torso, not their shoulders. Kriega’s original design minimizes fatigue, which is especially useful for ADV and trail riders facing long days and challenging trails.

100% waterproof, roll-top, storage body (11 liters or 5 liters, depending on model) constructed from extremely durable 420D Cordura and integrally mated to Kriega’s unique Quadloc-Lite harness system, adjustable for just about any body shape.

Auxiliary zip-access compartment (7 liters or 4 liters, depending on model) to transport essentials and house one of Kriega’s hydration packs (sold separately).

Additional, versatile carrying capacity offered by a Hypalon cargo net, backed with one of three colored panels offering optional injections of hi-viz lime or safety orange. It wouldn’t be Kriega if there wasn’t a trademark all-black option too.
