Ergon BC2 Pack Review

Hydration Pro Reviews

Ergon BC2 Pack Front

Reviewed by Brian Mullin http://www.gramslightbikes.com/

The Ergon BC2 is one of the most interesting packs, that I have ever used, and it’s got some highly innovative and functional features. The foremost is their unique frame system. It uses their flexible Profax PP frame, which transfers 80% of the pack’s load onto the hips, and is combined with the Flink ball joint (ball and socket), which allows the shoulder harness to freely pivot. The system is comprised of the pack, the plastic Profax PP frame, a massively padded hip belt, the Flink ball joint and a shoulder harness.

The BC2 is the middle brethren of the Ergon pack line, and lies between the Bc1 and BC3, all of which use the plastic frame and Flink ball joint system. The capacity of the BC2 is 16 liters (975 cubic inches), and can be expanded to another 4 liters (245 cubic inches), which makes a pretty voluminous pack. The pack is made with 600 Denier Nylon, comes with a rain cover, has a sleeve for an optional hydration reservoir, and is available in two colors, Black and Team Ergon (late 2010).

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.
