Specialized x Fjällräven: a collab dedicated to bikepacking

The iconic Swedish outdoor clothing and equipment brand and the Californian cycling expert join forces to offer a capsule collection that smells of adventure. Introducing "The Great Nearby".


In this union, Fjällräven's timeless aesthetics and durability merge with Specialized's high-end performance.

The aim of this collaboration? Encourage more people to reconnect with nature and establish a lasting relationship with it. Indeed, by 2050, it is estimated that metropolises and cities will encompass two-thirds of the world's population. It was time for the two iconic brands to refocus on our mental and physical health, as well as the health of our planet.

Henrik Andersson, artistic director of Fjällräven, and Erik Nohlin, head of design and equipment at Specialized, confirm what's at stake: "We realized that we had the same approach to nature and health, and that by working together, our brands could inspire more people to discover nature."

And what better way to do this than on a touring bike, more commonly known as the bikepacking ? This new way of traveling by bike, of going further and freeing oneself from limits, continues to attract new adepts. Taking only the bare minimum - a bike and a few panniers - is the definition of bikepacking, which advocates ultra-light, adventurous travel.

Exploring itineraries off the beaten track, setting up camp for the night in total autonomy - it's bound to sound appealing, isn't it?

A collaboration between Fjällräven and Specialized, between Sweden and California, between Hiking and Cycling.


At the crossroads of hiking and cycling, this durable, outdoor-designed collection includes a range of clever bike storage, practical backpacks and comfortable, functional clothing that optimizes both the cycling and camping experience.

There are also some very practical but totally unexpected items: a dress, a fanny pack, a jumpsuit, a night poncho... and the smallest cardigan we've ever seen.

In fact, the products feature the emblematic colors of both brands. On one side, the yellow and blue of Sweden, and on the other, the green and red of the Californian flag. A colorful signature that combines the respective universes of the two brands.

The Great Nearby collection offers a new opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural world around us.
