What are the characteristics of the different Deuter Freerider backpacks?
The Freerider is a ski backpack developed by Deuter and declined in different models with various volumes and equipment levels.

So, Freerider, Freerider Lite or Freerider Pro: which one's for you?
Deuter Freerider SL

Deuter Freerider Classic
The Deuter Freerider is the medium version. Available with a 24 or 26-litre capacity, it's the ideal compromise between storage capacity and lightness and comes with some additionnal features for more comfort and practicality. For example, you will find an easily accesible lined zipped pocked to store your goggles or phone. There's even a little amovible mat that you can use to sit comfortably in the snow without freezing your butt.
Deuter Freerider Pro
The Deuter Freerider Pro is the most voluminous and the most functional backpack of the Freerider range. Surequipped, it offers a huge volume (28-litre or 30-litre depending on the model) along with additional pockets.
