3 bikepacking tips from the pro

The focus of bikepacking is to travel with as little luggage as possible. This luggage is lashed down in special bags directly on the frame. Popular formats of bikepacking are overnighters, micro-adventures and also tours lasting several days or weeks or endurance races. But what do I take with me to the bikepacking and what do I prefer to leave at home? Adventurer and bikepacking specialist Kilian Reil, who attended the Altas Mountain Race in Morocco in February 2020 in self-supported mode, gives us his tipps!

3 bikepacking tips from the pro

WHAT DO I TAKE WITH ME FOR BIKEPACKING AND WHAT DO I RATHER LEAVE AT HOME?

The Atlas Mountain Race leads in 1,200 kilometres and 20,000 vertical metres through the High Atlas in Morocco. The concept of these races is that you have to navigate completely self-sufficient. There are no supply stationy. The break times are not specified. Everyone sleeps when and where they want. Kilian Reil has already done a lot of bike touring, bike packing, bike rafting… he reveals what he packs into his bags!

 

1. Don´t bring a tent!

With a sleeping bag and mattress and, in case of need, a rescue blanket, you can set up a nice camp for the night almost anywhere. Under trees, at barns, bus stops or simply against a wall you can always find a good bed. With a little practice and creativity, you can see what is suitable from the bike.


2. Less is more!

Who will take much,  must carry much. Surprisingly, it takes very little to set off on a microadventure for a few days. Water and food can be found in almost every small village. In summer you can pick a few cherries for dessert and with the powerbank you don’t need electricity. If it is still cold in your sleeping bag at night, just take your clothes with you, but don’t put them on. The sleeping bag warms best when you are not wearing much. The additional clothing increases the bulking power.


3. Getting lost is not a waste of time!

Detour back and forth, often the most beautiful places are not on the main road. With a little planning and good maps you can often find very nice places that are off the beaten track. Those who have not forgotten breakfast can also set up camp there. In the morning and in the evening the atmosphere is mostly even nicer than during the day.


„“It’s a good idea to have a bikethat has as little surface for technical defects as possible. For me it was clear that I would be riding my “Siberia” bike for the race. It has already
accompanied reliably through Yakutia and Indonesia!”“ –
Kilian Reil.

NEW: Geos E-Bike with innovative drive technology

GEOS develops and manufactures minimalist e-bikes in a timeless design. The developers rely on a steel frame with a fully integrated battery. Now, GEOS offers the new model with Pinion transmission, Gates belt drive and the new Innotorq rear-wheel motor with built-in torque sensor. “Cycling should be fun and more suitable for everyday use. The customer benefits from a low-maintenance carbon belt and a wear-free gearshift system.” – says the GEOS headquarters.

NEW: Geos E-Bike with innovative drive technology

The design is timeless. The bike is minimalistic. The technology is fully integrated.

The GEOS e-bike is now available with Pinion transmission and the Gates belt drive. This is made technically possible by the new Innotorq motor, which comes with an integrated torque sensor in the rear wheel axle. This concept is worldwide unique.

The GEOS is difficult to squeeze into one category. It is equally suitable for the daily commute to work as well as for tours off the beaten track. The sturdy steel frame with the thick tyres make the bike glide light as a feather over cobblestones and field paths. Low weight, mudguards and luggage carriers make the bike suitable for everyday use.

The frame is made of steel with a hard and corrosion-resistant nickel coating. The battery is divided into two units, which are integrated in the top and bottom tubes.  The bike weighs approx. 16 kg depending on the equipment variant and can also be ridden without electronic support.

There is no display. The on/off switch is mounted on the handlebars. The engine is switched on by briefly pressing the on/off switch on the handlebars. Another short press switches between the two levels “maximum range” and “maximum performance”. The parameters can be individually set via an app.

The battery is divided into two units, which are integrated in the top and bottom tubes. This allows  many cells to be integrated into a slim frame design.

The rear light is magnetically attached to the top tube, the charging socket is located below.

The GEOS e-bike is available with either 6- or 12-speed Pinion gearbox.  The carbon belt transmits the pedal force quietly and without any oiling like a conventional chain. The lightweight motor in the rear wheel hub provides silent and non-intrusive support. The torque sensor in the rear wheel axle in combination with the self-developed software offer harmonious handling.

“At GEOS have set ourselves the goal of developing a minimalist and fully integrated e-bike. All technology is fully integrated into the frame. Pinion is also pursuing this approach with the encapsulated gearshift. For me as a developer, the GEOS e-bike with Pinion transmission is the logical continuation of our approach. It rounds off our product portfolio in the premium segment.” – Dr. Peter Hanstein (Managing Director GEOS)

The total weight of the GEOS e-bike with Pinion gearbox, Gates belt drive and Innotorq rear motor is approximately 16 kg, depending on the frame size and individual configuration. It is currently available in two frame sizes (M and L) from 5,600.00 euros.

XPLORid: 100.000 km in 7 years

On 15 June 2020, the kick-off for a new Pinion world cycling project was given. The Dutch couple Ben and Linda have set themselves the goal of discovering the world by bike. 100.00 kilometres through 80 countries – for this they will take 7 years. Time to get in touch with people on the road and to support people living in poverty. That’s why they founded the XLPORid foundation. Linda and Ben would like to collect 1 euro for every cycled kilometre, which in the end equates to 100,000 euros. This amount is to be donated. They report on the details of their trip on their website!
