VELOMACCHI 28L SPEEDWAY ROLL-TOP BACKPACK
There seem to be two ends of the spectrum when it comes to backpacks: looks and functionality. In most cases you'll have to make a choice: do you want a backpack that is mostly functional with impressive technical specifications and a remarkable ease of use, or do you want a good-looking backpack that you can walk around with without looking like you're about to climb Mount Everest. In comes Velomacchi: in the promotional footage we received, their Speedway backpack promised us the moon with its slew of functions and very dapper looks. We've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our Velomacchi stock to put these big words to the test and boy were we pleasantly surprised when we opened up the Velomacchi boxes. The 28 litre capacity Speedway roll-top backpack is sturdy: it is constructed from abrasion resistant 1000D competition fabric which makes this a backpack that'll prove its worth for quite a few years to come. Its shoulder straps and harness system are some of the most innovative we've ever seen on any rucksack: the shoulder straps pivot so no matter what body shape you have or what kind of jacket you're wearing, the backpack will stay in place and sit on your back comfortably. The most outstanding feature is the harness closing system though, the knurled aluminium coupler uses a nifty magnetic system to automatically lock the harness in place on your sternum with a smooth twisting operation and a satisfying click, brilliant stuff! On top of all that techy sweetness, the Speedway backpack still manages to pull off a classy understated look, suiting every bike and riding style! Have a look at our video review for a more in-depth look at this impressive backpack.
