Emeryville, CA, March 14, 2005 — Hydrapak, Inc., the exclusive manufacturer of the easy-to-clean, Reversible Reservoir TM, and a full line of athlete influenced hydration backpacks, announces the addition of motorsport specific packs to compliment its line of all-around use hydration packs. The new hydration systems combine the best of both worlds for competitive and recreational biker sports, in weight, function and performance.
Hydrapak has long been recognized in the Motorcycle industry as being receptive to the needs of motorized sports by providing dedicated products, professional sponsorship and support of major events throughout the United States. The sleek ergonomic styling of the new packs does not interfere with the necessary actions of motorsports. The soft, open-end reservoir with a non-leak velcro closure has been touted as the best hydration alternative because it eliminates the potential hazard of having a large, hard plastic screw-top in the middle of the rider’s back, making landings less adventurous. Hydrapak has done rigorous testing in the field, and the reservoirs, which offer a lifetime warranty, have withstood every hardened test including driving a car over the reservoir!
According to the National Accounts Manager Matt Patterson, the Motorized Sports market has long been a focus of the company “ With the Scramble and the Roost added to the backpack line, we have renewed our dedication to all Offroad, ATV, competitive and recreational motocross enthusiasts and we take great pride in honing in on all the features people want for their specific interests.”
In introducing the motorsport specific Roost and Scramble packs, Hydrapak provides two alternatives to the frequent powersports adventurer. The Scramble is for the minimalist, a rugged and comfortable pack well constructed with a 70oz reservoir, a large main compartment and a stash pocket behind the lower flap. Padded shoulder straps with sternum strap and removable waist strap coupled with a side release buckle which allows system to be mounted to the outside of a chest protector. The Roost is the big Brother of the Scramble and has the same styling, with the same rugged materials, and the addition of more capacity, a large front pocket and a 100 ounce reservoir. Both packs offer Hydrapak’s full-featured drink system which includes Plug-and-Play connector with Shut-Off insert valve.
