Brand ION
Hydration System CompatibleYes, not included
Pack Volume16 - 20 litres


The ION Transom 16 is a unique backpack for cycling, with the Air_Condition system. This allows you to adjust your backpack so that it's elevated from your back to create an air flow, during steep climbs or tough races for example.
The V_String_Carrying _System are anatomic shoulder straps to adjust the backpack so it's comfortable to bring it. To also offer some protection, the Transom has a SAS-TEC Spine Plate Interface. This plate protects your back but makes sure you can still use the Air_Condition.

It has a 16L capacity, so you can bring everything you need with the Transom. There is room for a 3L water reservoir, tools, pumps, tyres, a spare rain coat, protectors, bars, gels, and you can fix your helmet to the backpack. Need more space? Not to worry, the Transom has Flex_Panels to create even more room. With the special coating, dirt from the rear wheel doesn't stick to the pack. Easy to keep clean!

Ventilazione eccellente.

Top ding voor een enduro dag

Voor nederlandse ritjes heeft het systeem geen meerwaarde maar voor klimmetjes langer dan 10 min is het zeker lekker die extra wind langs je rug. Ik heb reeds een evoc fr enduro maar ik denk dat ik de ion mee neem op de betere enduro dagen. Over een paar maanden komt het eindoordeel


  • Ventilatiesysteem
  • Stugge onderkant
  • Drinkslang kan links en rechts bevestigd worden
  • 16liter is een mooie maat
  • Materiaal ziet er degelijk uit


  • Rugprotectie niet standaard mee geleverd
  • Helmmontage is met een aanvullend flapje
  • Geen regenhoes, waterdichtheid nog niet getest

Detailed product description

Air_Condition: Revolutionary feature offering an uphill mode with maximum ventilation and a downhill mode for maximum proximity. Quickly adjusts within seconds. Patent application pending.

V_String_Carrying_System: Anatomically shaped shoulder straps plus adjustable V-String loops ensure correct backpack positioning. In any situation – including upside down!

SAS-TEC Spine Plate Interface: Interface for the integration of a SAS-TEC Spine Plate back protector. Once applied the backpack converts into a full back protection backpack – but still offering all advantages of the Air_Condition.

Their open texture makes the straps very breathable, yet offers ergonomic fit.

A standard feature that’s worth a mention. A small zipper pouch at the side of the backpack holds a net to fasten your helmet to the outside of the pack.

Ride like a camel, but not a thirsty one.

The place to be for all tools, tubes, tire levers. And the best: Just take it out to place it next to your punctured wheel. And back in again when keep on rolling.

Stores your trail map.

Pedaling in our knee protectors is no problem. In case you have others, just attach them to the backpack on the uphills. Or use the straps to compress your pack when it's not filled to the very top.

Flexible neoprene side panels on the backpack will give extra storage if required on long days.

Two mesh pockets inside for better organization. Your mom would love it!
