New Balance has teamed up with Timbuk2 to create a special-edition Backpack and Sling, each built with cycling-specific functionality that features both technical materials and modern styling. Both are also made to pair with New Balance C-Series footwear, conceived in the brand's Design Studio in Tokyo as an urban cycling shoe. As for the packs, both have reflective iridescent strips that glow in direct light, along with reflective zipper pulls and reflective flecked screenprint for added on-bike visibility. There's also a stretchy exterior trampoline pocket, dedicated laptop pockets and Tricot-lined Napoleon pockets for easy phone access. The New Balance x Timbuk2 C-Series Backpack and Sling -- along with the New Balance C-Series CM600C -- will be available beginning Saturday, July 16, exclusively at New Balance and Timbuk2 stores, as well as newbalance.com and timbuk2.com.
Release Date: 7/16/16 (Saturday)
