- Evoc bike bag; normal vs pro
Going to the alps in June so need a bike bag and looking at the evoc models as they seem popular. It has to fit an XL full sus 29er so I’m pretty limited on which bags will work as far as I can see. Is the pro model of the evoc bag worth it over the standard model? I’m not hugely fussed about how easy it is to get around airports, more the protection for the bike inside.Posted 3 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
I have an older standard, works fine up to 60 ish planes for it so far and no issues.

The ease of movement does actually mean it’s handled better in my experience, I’m less likely to fling it around as it’s easy to haul with a few other bags.Posted 3 years ago
My mate fits an xl trigger 29r is his fine too. The wheels support it vertically, the rigid base stops the stays/fork squash and the straps mean things don’t move and rub. I sometimes throw a towel or sheet in but that’s it. Can’t see much more the pro could offer.OnzadogMember
I’m about to buy a couple of pros after an extensive conversation with the UK brand manager. Sounds like the base is stiffer so offers more protection and the aluminium sliders on the base aid movement as well. Also, internal strapping is more flexible than on the standard bag so will hold oddball frames more securely.Posted 3 years ago
