The new Maratona 180 gear bag was designed as a cycling-specific travel bag for weekend riding trips and races but is versatile enough to be used as a general travel bag.
The Maratona becomes even more useful after an event when riders want to keep ride-day kit separate from clothing and weekend essentials.
Key features include a vented shoe bag with both internal and external access, a vented damp garment bag and water bottle holsters. The bag unzips to lay flat to form a small work area or place to sit.
The bag meets airline size regulations for carry-on luggage and has three external handles and stowable shoulder straps that allow it to be a duffel bag or a backpack.

Water everywhere, but not a drop to drink? Using questionable water sources won’t be a problem with the Lifesaver Liberty water filtration bottle that has replaceable filter capable of producing up to 530 gallons of potable water from rivers or lakes.
The Liberty holds 14 ounces. Its inline filter removes virtually 100 percent of bacteria, cysts and viruses.
The bottle is easy to fill. Just unscrew the base and pull it out, then scoop in water, keeping the top closed to block contamination. Screw the base back on and pump it twice to remove contamination.
Then unscrew the lid, open the flow valve and drink. The filter has an activated carbon disk and will stop releasing water once it’s blocked with contaminants. It filters out chlorine, bad tastes and odor, too.
Lifesaver Liberty also comes with a 5-foot “scavenger hose” for drawing water up without getting hands wet.
The Liberty filter sells for $89 online at iconlifesaver.com.
