Enduro mountain bike racing is grueling combination of cross-country and downhill riding. It requires strong legs, big lungs, and serious disregard for personal safety. Fortunately, the Osprey Zealot 15 is here to help tote the necessary gear when you’re moving fast.
A racing pack must ride stable and close. The Zealot 15 boasts Osprey’s BioStretch harness and hip belt to connect the pack to your body. Upper compression straps hold the load and specially designed baffles in the 2.5 LT liter Hydraulics reservoir reduce liquid movement to increase pack stability at high speed.
Access to the main compartment comes from a zippered back panel. This allows you to grab gear without interference from gear stored in the front panel mesh pocket or your helmet when it’s anchored to the LidLock carry system.
Additional storage options include stretch mesh side pockets, secure zippered hipbelt pockets, and a zippered external scratch-free pocket perfect for eyewear or other small items. An integrated removable tool pouch rolls out from a zippered lower pocket providing organized access for rapid trailside repairs.
And if a pesky mechanical issue delays you after dark, there’s a blinker light attachment for enhanced nighttime visibility to get you home safely.
