SHIMANO - HOTAKA Day Pack Lightning Blue
Mt. Hotaka is known as one of the most challenging of all the mountains in Japan's Northern Alps. Inspired by its rugged peaks, Shimano developed the HOTAKA collection of high-performance cycling bags. These bags combine generous capacity and smart features with the streamlined design and body-fitting comfort of Shimano's Accu-3D. There's room inside for all your essentials: food, tools, and extra clothes to handle the fickle alpine weather. All that, plus dedicated storage for your map, helmet, and hydration pack. When you strap on a HOTAKA bag, you're already halfway up the mountain!
HYDRATION SYSTEM COMPATIBLE
MESH SIDE POCKETS
FRONT POCKET WITH KEY HOLDER
WAIST BELT FOR ADDED STABILITY
Ever thought about how shoulder straps affect your ride? Shimano has. We wanted to improve on the conventional backpack design. You know, where the straps press down on your pecs, clip together across the chest, and restrict your ability to move and breathe during intense mountain rides. Our solution is the Rider Fit Cross Harness. The straps of this harness join between the pecs, so your muscles are free to work more efficiently on climbs and descents. And because there's no waist belt, you can also breathe more fully from the stomach. End result: more comfort and power to attack the trail.
Along with the center back, the underarms generate the most heat and perspiration during exercise. A standard backpack with shoulder straps right under the arms simply adds to the discomfort. To fix this, the straps on Shimano's Rider Fit Cross Harness are designed to go lower on the torso. That way, you get free airflow, less moisture, and more comfort. Thanks to its adjustable unisex design, the Cross Harness offers an ideal fit for men and women alike.
BREATHABLE BACK PANEL
One of the keys to an enjoyable bike ride is proper back ventilation. On Accu-3D bags, Shimano has incorporated a breathable panel to dissipate unwanted heat along the center of the back. The anatomically fitting structure employs materials with different densities to create channels that promote a naturally cooling airflow
People come in all shapes and sizes. That's why Shimano made the Rider Fit Cross Harness fully customizable. Whether you're male or female, tall or short, you can fine-tune the harness for a perfect fit. The lightweight hook-and-loop structure is easy to adjust and doesn't add excess weight.Image is for illustration purposes only
