There were plenty of cool helmets and other gear to see on the Interbike showroom floor. Swinging by t.h.e., Bell, Five Ten, Dakine, Osprey, and a few others, I had a chance to see what’s new and exciting for 2013. (…)
Osprey showed up with some improvements throughout their lineup. The highlight is the new bladder that comes in all the latest packs. This new reservoir rides wider and flatter on the back, with a new hose (now the same diameter as everyone else’s) that’s compatible with existing accessories.
There are also a few updates to the packs, such as the ones above, as well as some all-new packs. One of the updates is a continuous zipper that allows painless access to the bladder and hose. A tool pouch is making its way into many more packs as well.
