Modern mountain bikes are worlds different than their predecessors from even ten years ago. Even hardtails are pursuing the longer, slacker, lower approach to geometry. This means bikepacking bags need to be updated. Apidura has taken their Backcountry frame bags and updated them to fit modern hardtails better. They didn’t stop there however, these bags are completely redesigned with new compartments, improved details, 2.5, 4, 6L sizes, and more. Head to Apidura to see all the updated bags in the MTB lineup.
