Eurobike 2016: Evoc

Evoc were mostly showing incremental product improvements this year, though there were a few completely new things. First of all, hip packs!

Eurobike 2016: Evoc
This is Evoc’s new three litre hip pack.

It has mesh and pad ventilation at the back, but as well as that…

… these straps on the hips can either keep it tight up against you…

… or you can loosen them to let the main compartment hang away from your back on climbs, giving you extra cooling.

It also has small, zip up side pcokets…

… water/other stuff compartment closest to your back…

… and a tool compartment on the outside.

The tool pocket is quick to open thanks to these conjoined zips.

Of course, zips with a handle in such easy reach might also make it easy for your bad friends to annoy you.

This was the newest thing they had to show, but there’s also a new thing Evoc are doing: Free crash replacement for the Liteshield back protectors integrated into their packs. This wasn’t the case before, and because they’re made with EPS sections, they aren’t multi-impact. The EPS does make impact damage obvious though, and now you’ll be able to get crash replacements for free.

Also available in different sizes, which Evoc say is crucial for different lengths of back. For more information on that, see this page on their website.

This is Evoc’s Enduro Vest, which integrates shoulder and chest protection, but no back protection. That’s because it’s designed to work with a pack that has a back protector.

In case it’s not obvious, there you go!

This is the FR Lite pack, at just 10 litres.

Also available are the FR Enduro (16l) and the FR Trail (20l), also both integrating back protectors.

Cheeky Giro!

This is the new CC 10l backpack, which does not have a back protector. They’ve named this strap system “Brace Link”, and it apparently auto-adjusts the strap width to the wearer’s shoulders.

I thought this was a ghost bike for a split second, then realised it was showing off their new Bike Stand.

New standards mean that mountain bikes alone have recently become a lot of different, but close shapes. This will accommodate most of them, front…

… and back. It’ll accommodate frames with a wheelbase up to 124cm.

  1. Like the look of the Bike Stand thingy, but am I the only one reading “True axle” in a cod german accent? “Ja, und zen ve haf ze true axle in alle ze colours…” No? Just me then…

  2. Any idea of the price and weight of the stand?

  3. The stand looks a good idea, I bet it’s pricey though.
