Dakine debuts Hot Laps series

Dakine has debuted its new Hot Laps series, 5L.

The Hot Laps 5L offers the largest feature set in the series. It includes a 2L Hydrapak lumbar reservoir with magnetic hose buckle for long rides. The offset waist buckle with stretch panel and the airflow back panel each provide added comfort. Internal sections will keep the user’s gloves, snacks and essentials organised. The fleece lined pocket is specifically designed to protect the user’s phone. The front attachment straps can secure a light jacket or knee pads and cinch up cleanly when not in use. The added side compression straps reduce the volume when carrying less gear. The safety light attachment will allow the user to keep on riding when light gets low.

The Hot Laps 2L is smaller and simplified for shorter rides. It keeps the breathable air mesh back panel and offset waist belt for comfort. It adds an external bottle carry and internal drop pockets.

The Hot Laps Stealth is designed to be worn under a jersey for concealed storage. The air mesh back panel with Polygiene odour control technology secures breathability. It includes micro-stretch waist belt for comfort and dual mesh side pockets for added breathability. Users will also find tool, tire lever, C02 and tube specific storage, plus padded phone protection and room for keys or a wallet.

For on-bike storage, the Hot Laps Gripper attaches under the seat or to multiple locations on the bike frame to house tire levers, C02 and a spare tube.
