GramsLightBikes.com – Featuring SS15 Syncro, Zealot, Escapist Series, Moki and Hydrojet – September 28, 2014

September 28, 2014

Osprey Packs made some changes to their popular Syncro, Zealot and Escapist packs for Spring 2015, and added some new kids hydration packs…

The Zealot is only offered in a 15 liter size this year, and it has new colors with more subdued graphics. It was redesigned with a slimmer profile to keep it closer to the body and away from the arms, to help it function better during extreme trail riding. It comes with their 3-liter Hydraulics reservoir, has dual mesh side pockets, their LidLock helmet attachment, and a padded front sleeve to carry a full faced helmet…

The Syncro now comes in 3, 10 and 15 liter models, and they’re more streamlined and lighter packs then their predecessors. The super light and minimalistic 3 liter versions will be a great pack for those quick rides and races, where only a small amount of gear is needed…

Osprey made some minor changes in their bikepacking Escapist Series of packs. They now have three sizes, with capacities of 18, 25 and 32 liters,…and will come in Sin Black, Indigo Blue, Cayenne Red colors. They have a large main compartment to make it easy to carry and organize gear…

New for this year are two kid specific hydration packs, the Moki and the Hydrojet 15. The packs come with their 1.5 liter Hydraulics LT reservoir, and they’re cut for a younger riders anatomy and torso size…

SingleTrackWorld.com – Featuring SS15 Zealot, Syncro, Escapist and Moki – September 22, 2014

September 22, 2014

For 2015, Osprey has made a number of changes to several of their well-regarded (and often Singletrack Recommended) hydration packs…

Their first rad-specific pack, the Zealot is updated for 2015 with toned-down graphics (no more exploded frame drawing), a tidied exterior, and improved tool roll…

A revised Syncro range will make the short ride crowd happy, shedding roughly 1/3 of previous models’ weight.  Now-ambidextrous hosing could help to bring the 27% of Singletrackworld readers who prefer left-shoulder drinking into the fold…

Popular both for hut-to-hut trips and for commuting, Osprey’s Escapist has also been updated.  Again sleeker than its predecessors, the 18L, 25L, and massive 32L packs had us plotting our next adventure right there on the show floor…

And finally, one for the young-uns.  The new Osprey Moki is a full-featured pack built especially for kids.  Allowing the offspring to carry their own food, drink, and accessories is never a bad idea…

BikeBiz.com – Featuring SS15 Hydrojet, Moki, Syncro, Zealot and Escapist Series – September 18, 2014

September 18, 2014

Osprey has added two childrens packs to its catalogue to ensure kids can take on the fluids required during long days in the saddle.

The Hydrojet and Moki packs both house a 1.5 litre bladder and though minimised, carry many of the features you’ll find on adult packs.

Interbike also saw the introduction of a much redesigned Syncro Series, now available with 3, 10 and 15 litre capacities and either 1.5 or 2.5 litre bladders.

The Zealot is offered in a singular 15L size this year – compared to the 10L and 16L sizes last year – after finding it to be the optimal in-between size for all-mountain riders…

TetonGravity.com – Featuring Zealot – September 16, 2014

September 16, 2014

TGR Contributor Kristen Gross and TGR’s own Jon Grinney plied the tradeshow floors between the carpeted walls, slot machines, and suspect plastic surgery of Las Vegas’ Interbike 2014, pacing miles on velvet from booth to booth, hunting down the latest and greatest in mountain bike gadgetry and even entire mountain bikes!

Kristen winnowed down the tradeshow offering to the most thrilling for next spring, and today’s Best Of gallery features offerings from Rocky Mountain (whose sister rig we tested this summer), Giant, POC, Smith, Giro, Osprey, and Sony, and cajoled Jon into whipping the camera out at every juncture…

Orange is the new black (but you can still get it in black) for this adventure pack aimed at the trail-riding crowd. Available in January 2015, what we loved most about the Zealot is the roll-out tool wallet. So whether you’re out for the day or just a couple hours, you can keep your trail tools organized and ready to go — grab the whole bag, or just slip the detachable pouch in your jersey pocket.

VitalMTB.com – Featuring Zealot – September 2013

September 14, 2013

While not entirely new for 2014, we thought you guys would appreciate this pack. The Zealot has a padded compression pocket for lugging your pads or jacket to the top, as well as straps to carry a full face and a clever Lid Lock feature to attach a half shell if you’re doing the enduro thing. Rear entry access allows you to keep your helmet attached but still get into it quickly. Another rad feature is the Air Scrape back panel, which is essentially air flow channels to keep you cool. The bag is offered in two models – the main difference being the inclusion of hip pockets. Get it in blue or black.
