Oakland, CA (Beruary 18, 2015) – Hydrapak™ and Ergon™ have worked together to bring something new to the hydration category. Ergon™, a Germany-based brand of innovative, ergonomic bike products, collaborated with Hydrapak™ to customize its new OHY™ reservoir to fit perfectly in two new cutting edge race packs developed with downhill legend Fabien Barel.

For the Ergon™ project, Hydrapak™ engineers exceeded the guidelines from Ergon’s design team. The result is a unique cube shaped 1.5 L reservoir that sits at the waist for a lower center of gravity. The BE1 and larger volume BE2 packs feature a 4 step back fitting system, are unbelievably flexible, and superlight at 965 grams (including reservoir).

 “When designing our new series of bike packs we turned to Hydrapak to create a reservoir and drinking tube system that paired seamlessly with our packs,” explains Bjoern Altenhofer, Backpack Designer at Ergon™. “With the importance our company puts in the ergonomics of our designs it was critical to source a hydration partner that could meet our stringent design and quality ethos.”

 “We enable our OE partners to look beyond traditional reservoir dimensions and expand the realms of possibilities with a stable of 45 readily available Reservoir and SoftFlask™ design options,” explains Sam Lopez, Director of Engineering at Hydrapak. “Allowing product designers the freedom to dream is what makes the OE side of our business fun.”
