BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Gravel, touring, and bikepacking require more robust equipment. Frame, wheels, tires, clothing—none of a rider’s gear is exempt, so the KIESPANZER (or “Gravel Tank”) provides the requisite
durability for the inevitable abuse of cycling beyond the tarmac. It’s also equipped with storage solutions for day-trip supplies or to supplement pack space and keep ride essentials readily accessible in pockets of high-stretch, extremely breathable 3-Mesh panels. Reflective stripes help ensure visibility on early departures, late returns, or those long dusks while pushing through the final miles to the next hotel or campsite.
Type.429 wraps with a lightly compressive hold for a streamlined, breathable fit. When the gravel “road” becomes little more than a path and trail-side brush closes in, side panels of Bunny Hop add a barrier against abrasion that still stretches and compresses like a road-specific textile courtesy of our woven, 50/50 polyamide and elastane blend.
WHEN/HOW TO USE IT
Gravel, touring, and even light trail duty—anytime you’re venturing beyond the tarmac or heading out on a multiday tour.
