Multi-functionality is a critical feature for sports bags – that is why BMW has put it at the heart of its new Triathlon Bag from the Athletics Collection.

As for whether it’s a rucksack or a shoulder bag: it’s both! The Triathlon Bag’s adjustable shoulder strap lets you easily convert it into a rucksack with a comfortable padded back. Take it anywhere you need it – to the gym, to the pool, to the track or on a mountain biking excursion. It will go along with any kind of fun, indoors or out.

Warm up – Get packed without breaking a sweat!

It’s important to be organised. But don’t let it keep you from having fun. The Triathlon Bag makes it easy to get organised, leaving you plenty of time for the things you really like doing. With 80 litres of volume, it has lots of space plus lots of extra pockets for all the little things that make your workout run more smoothly. A vented shoe compartment, two glasses pockets and an extra helmet compartment keep everything in its place and make sure you stay cool before things heat up.

Training – Everything you need is to hand!

Two insulated pockets keep your drinks at the ideal temperature, even on hot days. The Triathlon Bag has three snack pockets, so you never have far to go when hunger strikes. Another special feature is the padded, lockable compartment for your iPhone and heart rate monitor. And thanks to its tarpaulin-reinforced bottom, this robust bag is stable even on uneven ground.

Cool down – Time to relax!

Another compartment provides space for your shower gel, shampoo or a favourite magazine to help you wind down after training. The separate wet pocket is the perfect place to stash your towel, shower flip flops or sweaty clothing – and it’s okay if they have to stay there a while. In case you have to travel home in the dark, the bag’s reflective elements will ensure you being visible to passing vehicles.
