Now that The Peloton comes in two sizes (24-34L and 30-42L for the S and the OG respectively), If you know the capacity that you need, go ahead and choose that. But if you need a visual guideline on the Peloton based on body height, read on.
First, I need to preface this by saying these are purely based on look, they’re definitely not a hard-and-fast rule, and does not take into account things like body frame width, personal style preference, etc, and keep in mind you can still use the compression straps on either models to make the bags slimmer. With that out of the way, here goes:
As shown in the graphic above, we suggest those on the taller side of the spectrum to go with The Regular Peloton, and those on the shorter side of the spectrum go with The Peloton [S]. Those in the mid range (170cm-185cm) would fit either size nicely. If you're curious about what Bono (195cm) and Bagus (167cm) would look like using the opposite size bag take a look at these following pictures.
In terms of ergonomics, there is no difference as the back panel height and shoulder strap distance are identical. Again I want to reiterate; those numbers only serve as a loose guideline, if you’re on the taller end of the spectrum, it’s not a crime to get the small Peloton, and vice versa, if you’re on the shorter side yet needs a larger bag for backpacking, nobody’s gonna stop you from getting the regular one.
