For mountain bikers, bike commuters and everyone who likes to travel with bike and dog. The dog backpack for cycling must sit well, especially on fast descents with the mountain bike, so that nothing disturbs or wobbles. The center of gravity of the backpack should be close to the back. This is especially important when mountain biking.
Just as important is the ventilation. All TARIGS dog carrier backpacks have a ventilation system. This provides the necessary fresh air supply, so that you do not sweat too much on the back. To protect your dog from wind and weather, our dog backpacks are made of water-repellent material. So you can brave any weather!
Our bike backpacks for dogs are equipped with mesh pockets on the sides, where you can store energy bars and gels, as well as drinks, so that everything is within easy reach. They have tether straps, high-quality zippers and reinforced bottoms. Choose the right size so your dog can sit upright comfortably. Despite its bright and vibrant colors, the MountainRock Backpack is impervious and easy to clean thanks to stain- and water-resistant materials. The material of the PeakStone Backpack is also water repellent and ready for use all year round.
Dog transport for mountain biking
Dog bike baskets are often suitable for dogs up to 7 kg and are attached to the handlebars via an adapter. If the dog does not sit quietly in the dog bike basket, it can therefore lead to an unsafe driving experience. For bicycle baskets, the lighter the dog, the better. Since bicycle baskets have no (natural) suspension, rides through rough terrain, over roots and curbs should be avoided at all costs.
For dogs weighing 20 kg, bicycle trailers are the best alternative. However, with a heavy dog in the trailer, riding in hilly terrain is difficult. Uphill the trailer pulls down, downhill it pushes forward. Also, with smaller dogs in the trailer, uneven, rooty trails should be avoided. The risk of the trailer tipping over, along with the dog and bike, is far too great. By the way, it is forbidden to take bicycle trailers and cargo bicycles on most public transportation.
Dog carrier backpacks benefit from the natural suspension. Nevertheless, dog backpacks are also not suitable for wild downhill trails. Tours over rooty trails, on the other hand, are no problem. However, they are only suitable for dogs up to about 16 kg. The TARIGS dog backpacks are foldable, can be easily stowed and are ready for use immediately, without adapters.
Backpack for everyday life
The advantage of dog backpacks for cycling compared to bike baskets and trailers is that your dog sits close to your body, which keeps the bike more streamlined. So you are more sporty on the road. Our stylish backpacks also make a good figure in everyday life. Besides your dog, you always have your valuables with you. Our PeakStone backpacks are also equipped with an extra pocket for money, smartphone or keys in the hip belt.
