The Endurance 9.0 is the ideal race-day bag. Its concise package of pockets and slots means there’s a place for all of your essentials.
One full-length side pocket offers slots for nutrition products and sun cream, etc. The mirror pocket on the other side has a tool and spares slots, and a neat hard-sided ‘tech vault’ pocket ideal for your phone. A slot for your changing mat is also fitted on this side. Two further side exterior slot pockets will each take a water bottle.
On the narrow ends there's an integral shoe bag, with space for two pairs. The other end has an integrated hard protection case for your glasses, GPS etc. A full-length wet pocket is perfect for your post-race kit; this expands with a full-vented surround to help it dry as you travel.
The main compartment is big enough for the remainder of your kit and even this features a helmet sleeve. The bag can be carried like a regular holdall or worn as a rucksack – we’ve even used it as carry-on luggage. Only the price stops it getting full marks.
