Evoc Launches new Trail Pro with Liteshield Plus back protector

by 3

Evoc has added a new backpack with Level 2 back protection to its range: the Trail Pro, which it claims to be one of the lightest protector packs on the market.

The Trail Pro comes in three volumes and each pack comes in two sizes to fit different torso lengths:

10 litre Evoc Trail Pro

  • 10 l, 900g (size S/M), 26 x 50 x 9 cm
  • Colours: Black – Carbon Grey; Light Olive – Carbon Grey
  • Price: 190 € / 220 USD / 179,99 GBP

16 litre Evoc Trail Pro

  • 16 l, 1000g (size S/M), 26 x 50 x 12 cm
  • Colours: Black – Carbon Grey; Light Olive – Carbon Grey
  • Price: 210 € / 240 USD / 199,99 GBP

26 litre Evoc Trail Pro

  • 26 l, 1070g (size S/M), 26 x 50 x 16 cm
  • Colours: Black – Carbon Grey; Light Olive – Carbon Grey
  • Price: 230 € / 260 USD / 219,99 GBP

We’ve got a 16 litre sample here on test but we’re going to use it some more before we give our verdict. The pocket design and layout is quite similar to the FR Lite Race tested previously by Amanda, but that included the Liteshield protector, whereas this offers a ‘Liteshield Plus’ protector which claims to offer improved impact absorption properties and better flexibility and stability. It’s certainly noticeably less hefty than the Evoc Neo Protector tested and much loved by Hannah.

Evoc Trail Pro Features

  • Lateral zippered pocket on the hip belt (TRAIL PRO 10)
  • Mesh pocket for small items and keys in the main compartment (TRAIL PRO 16 and 26)
  • Rain cover with protection for the lateral compartments in the hip belt pocket (TRAIL PRO 16 and 26)
  • Attachment straps for the helmet carrier
  • Compartment for hydration bladders up to 3 litres
  • Clip to attach hydration system hose
  • Height-adjustable chest strap with signaling whistle
  • Fleece-lined compartment for glasses
  • Emergency plan
  • New Codra material: Nylon-Polyester mix with soft touch surface
Evoc Trail Pro

This is the first time that Evoc has used the Brace Link in a protector backpack. This feature enables the rider to adapt the padded shoulder straps to their individual shoulder width via variable connector elements. The backpack has no seams on the shoulder straps in the neck and upper shoulder area in order to prevent friction or pressure. It’s also Evoc’s first backpack to use weight-saving, pre-formed 3D pads on the back, which promise to improve comfort and air circulation by creating space between the backpack and the riders’ back.

With so many bits to fiddle with and set just right to your body and load, we’re going to take a bit more time to try this pack out before giving you our verdict. Watch this space – or take the plunge and buy yours now from Evoc or UK distributor ZyroFisher.
