November 2, 2018

Designed for the Needs and Style Sensibilities of the Urban Bike Commuter

Cortez, CO – November 1, 2018 Osprey Packs, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, introduces Metron, designed for the needs and style sensibilities of the urban bike commuter.

“Metron is designed for urban bike commuters who need a comfortable pack that includes subtle technical features and a style that matches their own,” said Jack Gresmer, Osprey Bike Sales Manager. “Equally important to the pack’s urban aesthetic are the carry, organization and safety-focused features that set Osprey apart from the competition.”

In addition to Metron, Osprey is refreshing their Radial ($180) commute pack with a clean, modern aesthetic for Fall 2019.

The 26 liter Radial expands to 34 liters and features an AirSpeed backpanel for enhanced ventilation as well as an integrated kickstand to keep your pack upright for easy access to everything inside.
