ENVE has released a versatile hip pack with plenty of room for day-ride essentials, including a spare tube and belt-integrated multi-tool.
Lightweight but rugged, the 2.5-liter Axis pack from Mission Workshop is constructed with high-tenacity 500 denier nylon with floating internal lining to keep things dry. Inside are two stuff pockets, a zippered security pocket, key clip, and a spare tube in its own ENVE-logo’d BIKETUBE sock.
Built into the pack belt with a special clip for easy access, a Fix Manufacturing Wheelie Wrench has just about everything for on-trail emergencies, including Torx and hex bits, box and spoke wrenches, screwdrivers, and the absolutely vital bottle opener.
The pack has room for energy bars, a windbreaker or water bottle, as well as a compact first-aid kit. Its low profile and wide belt fins ensure a snug, no-flop fit even during rowdy descents.
The ENVE X Mission Workshop Hip Pack can be ordered with either a 27.5 or 29er tube from ENVE’s Web site. Price is $160. For more information please visit enve.com.
