Win one of two all-new SLICKS backpacks!

You can't buy one yet, but you could win one right here!...

Get coal in your stocking? Never mind, you could still get your naughty mitts on some great new gear this Christmas! We've teamed up with SLICKS to give two lucky winners a yet-to-be-released SLICKS backpack in the colour and option of their choice. Be one of the first to own this versatile backpack that will be launching shortly on Kickstarter.

Cycling commuters have it hard: rain and road scum, uphill lanes and bumpy paths. Much as we may try, a ride to work usually results in arriving sweaty. If you don’t much enjoy being fragrant for the rest of the work day you need to pack a change of clothes and to be ready to transform from a cycling god to a dapper professional. That's where the 'all-new' SLICKS comes in. 

This backpack is designed as a modular system, available either as a base backpack only or in three tailored options, each with additional internal accessories.

The TRIP option combines the backpack with a removable TRIPCOVER, a clever and compact mobile wardrobe with features such as tidy collar protection & folder for a dress shirt, a toiletries bag and even an odour-proof laundry bag.

The SUIT option combines the SLICKS backpack with the removable SUITCOVER that keeps your suit secure and wrinkle-free in your bag.

The BIZ is the all-rounder, featuring the SLICKS backpack with both the removable SUITCOVER and TRIPCOVER, so you’re ready for anything.

SLICKS also features a suspended laptop sleeve, internal organiser and weater-resistant fabric with a raincover for extra protection. It doubles up as a carry-on travel backpack for your business trips & leisure holidays.  It's really the one bag for all your needs. It even converts from a backpack to a briefcase, so you can roll from cycling to work to business settings quickly and conveniently.
