ThereÕs a reason this is one of our bestselling, longest-running packs: itÕs got everything you need, and nothing you donÕt. The M.U.L.E.® has a narrow-gauge design that keeps it light and maneuverableÑso even when itÕs fully loaded for a day of mountain biking, it wonÕt get in your way. The latest edition is built around the brand new Crux reservoir, which is even easier to load and refill, and delivers more water with every sip. Since we launched the first M.U.L.E. in 1996, mountain bikers have been telling us that it hits the sweet spot of size vs. storage: itÕs lightweight, but big enough to carry three liters of water and a dayÕs worth of snacks and gear. Over the years, weÕve also added air channels to keep your back cool, universal helmet hooks, and clever compartments for stashing tools, keys and electronics. The latest version also features a magnetic tube trap that snaps easily into place, so you can hydrate without taking your eyes off the trail.
The brand new Crux delivers 20% more water per sip, with an ergonomic handle for easier refilling, and an on/off lever that makes it easy to prevent leaks.
