When the Deuter Superbike originally washed up on US soil, it rocked the world of packs by offering one of the first off-the-back ventilation systems. That was during the height of Y2K -- a time when hydration packs were crude, flat-backed packs with tight quarters. Fast forward to today, and other then small tweaks and updated technologies, that original pack's innovative soul lives on in the Superbike 18 EXP. Based on the positive reaction to the Superbike's ventilation system, Deuter dived headfirst into developing one of the most effective ways to comfortably support weight while proving glorious, cooling airflow. This evolved into the Airstripes system found here on the Superbike 18 EXP. Comprehensively this includes; 3D Airmesh lined shoulder straps, breathable Mesh wings, contoured and shaped pads, and flexible aluminum stays. The shoulder straps are anatomically formed for unrestrictive movement on the bike, but more importantly its to avoid undo pressure points. To help mitigate pack motion, the shoulder straps are tied together by a chest strap. To further stabilize loads and prevent the pack from swinging side to side during aggressive riding, the Superbike 18 EXP has a wide hip belt with highly breathable mesh wings. This hugs your waist rather than squeezes, so the pack won't irritate on longer rides. The most important feature, however, is the back padding. This is much more than just curvy pads, the contoured foam has a waffle pattern to allow adequate airflow. Where other packs trap moisture under the pads, Deuter permits perspiration to be evaporated. An AirMesh lining gives the pads minimal surface contact to further enhanced air circulation. But, that's not the extent of attention to detail Deuter gives this essential component. The foam pads also have an aluminum core. This aluminum allows you to bend the packs profile to perfectly match the curvature of your vertebrae for excellent fit and comfort.
