Design & Innovation Award for the BE3
Ergon struck again at Enduro Mountainbike Magazine’s Design & Innovation Awards 2016: Our BE3 Enduro Backpack was able to convince the international expert jury and integrate itself seamlessly to the list of Ergon winners.
Following the GE1 and the GA2 grip as well as the BE1 backpack, the new BE3 Enduro backpack has now been awarded this popular and internationally recognized Design & Innovation Award from Enduro Mountainbike Magazine.
”The team at Ergon proves again with the two-piece BE3 that they wield serious know-how in the development of high-quality backpacks”, boasted the statement of the expert jury, which took two weeks to test and analyze the current best and most innovative products of the bike industry. The Kronplatz / San Vigilio in the Dolomites serves as the perfect location.
The back system of the BE3 was developed in collaboration with race legend Fabien Barel. The backpack can be adjusted to the anatomy of the carrier in four steps to ensure optimal freedom of movement. In order to keep the center of gravity low, the bladder is stowed away in the lower two compartments. The BE3 offers more storage space than the BE1 or BE2 and is meant for everyone, who wants to bring a little extra, but doesn’t want to miss out on the riding fun.
Additional outstanding characteristics of the BE3 are high flexibility by means of a mobile middle section made of EVA molded foam, the simple mounting options for full face and standard helmets as well as the self adjusting shoulder straps with more stable connectivity for loads on the lower back. It’s filling capacity of 10 liters makes it the ideal day pack for gravity bikers, no matter if on a day trip or a bike park trip.
The BE3 by Ergon is available at the beginning of the season for 159,95 EUR incl. bladder at your dealer. Colors: black, blue-black, red-black.
The Design & Innovation Award of the Enduro Mountainbike Magazine is awarded in collaboration with outstanding personalities of the bike scene. For more than two weeks, the 40-member expert jury tested, analyzed and discussed the most interesting and most innovative products from a total of nine categories in South Tyrol.
