How to pack for any trail ride starting with the every ride essentials

Whether you’re heading for triple-digit backcountry miles or a quick pre-work rip on the local trails, these essentials are critical to keep on your bike day in and day out.

  1. A full water bottle
    It should go without saying that hydration is key for any ride.
  2. Mini pump and CO2 inflator
    Spare tubes won’t get you far if you’re without a way to inflate them. The Bontrager Air Rush Elite CO₂ Inflator cuts inflation time to get you back on the trail faster.
  3. Spare tube
    Even in the tubeless era, a spare tube can save a ride when a puncture just won’t seal.
  4. Tire levers
    Essential for changing tubes.
  5. A multi-tool with Allen keys, Torx keys, a spare quick-link, and tire plugs
    Simplify mechanicals with a sleek, integrated multitool that hides neatly in your steertube, and quickly plug flats that won’t seal on your tubeless tires.
  6. Zip ties and duct tape
    Handy do-it-all supplies that will help you fix most issues on the trail.

Gear tip

Wrap a little duct tape around the bottom of your mini pump for easy access without extra bulk, and store spare zip ties inside of your pump, if it has a space for them. Alternatively, stash zip ties inside your handlebars secured together with a rubber band to prevent rattling while you ride.

Adapt this list to your needs

If you’re asthmatic add an inhaler, or if you have allergies make sure you’ve always got an EpiPen ready to go. These are just the basics, and you can fine-tune your essentials individually.
