Camelbak’s new enduro-specific KUDU hydration packs include integrated back protectors (top right) and a tool roll (bottom right) to keep tools organized within the bag.
CamelBak combines hydration and cargo carry with CE-certified back protection in their new KUDU 12 and KUDU 18 hydration packs launched at Eurobike this week. Designed with enduro racing in mind, the packs each include a removable three-layer, multi-density foam insert certified to the CE Level 2 motorcycle protection standard. The flexible insert conforms to the contours of the back for better fit and comfort than traditional hard pads.
The KUDU packs, include a double sternum strap and hose clips, come in two sizes, and can accommodate both open- and full-face helmets (right).
The packs also include a tool roll to keep tools organized inside the pack, as well as a double sternum strap and double hose clip to help keep the pack calm during the rigorous descents of enduro courses. Straps for armor and accommodation for both open- and full-face helmet carry add to the packs’ enduro-readiness. Both the $200, 12-liter capacity KUDU 12 and the $225, 18-liter capacity KUDU 18 ship with 100-ounce fluid reservoirs.
