The Timbuk2 x New Balance collection is the result of a partnership between two iconic American brands that have come together to produce an exceptional range of gear for city cyclists.
Headlining this dream collaboration are two bags, both made with slightly stretchy material, iridescent strips that glow in direct light and reflective flecked screen-print for improved on-bike visibility.
They’re also built with reflective zipper pulls, a stretchy exterior trampoline pocket for helmet storage and a scratch resistant, Tricot-lined Napoleon pocket to keep smalleritems.
Traditionalists will love the C-Series Backpack (S$319), a full-featured bag with easy-to-access laptop and phone compartments. A perforated air mesh back panel keeps the body cool, while an on-strap bottle opener lets cyclists pop a cold brew or an energy drink while on the go.
Accompanying the backpack is the C-Series Sling (S$249). Like its bigger brother, the sling stows a 15-inch laptop and other big items with total protection against the elements. It even has an internal organizer for documents and smaller stuff. A reversible shoulder strap means it can be slung across either shoulder.
Complementing both bags is the New Balance CM600C (S$175), an urban cycling shoe that comes in either black or white. It’s built to withstand urban cycling trips with light-catching reflective material on the upper, high-density rubber sole and hideaway pouch for tucking away excess laces.
The Timbuk2 x New Balance collection will be available on July 16th at Timbuk2’s store (Bugis Junction, #03-26A, Singapore 188021).
