Osprey nailed the first versions of their bike-optimized hip packs, the Seral 7L and Savu 4L and now they have two new and slimmer versions; a Seral 4L and Savu 2L.
The Seral 4L has a 1.5L hydration reservoir and features an updated magnetic coupling for improved retention over rough trails. Osprey says that the Seral 4L has enough storage for a tube, CO2 inflator, a multi-tool, and snacks. The back panel and hip belts are optimized for ventilation. The price of the Seral 7L is $75.
The Savu 2L still caters to the water bottle carrying crowd. The new version carries one bottle, whereas the 4L Savu carries two. The Savu 2L is similar to Bontrager’s popular Rapid Pack, which fits the bottle in the middle of the pouch, rather than holstering them along the sides. There is still room for the essentials like a spare tube, compressed air, and a multi-tool according to Osprey. They have right- and a left-hand versions of the pack, which angles the bottle to either the left or right. The price of the Savu 2L is $50.
