  • The new EVOC LITESHIELD PLUS back protector (EN 1621-2; level 2) offers versatile protection with a high level of protection level and a large protected surface – covering the rider’s full back.
  • At 900 Grams, the TRAIL PRO 10 is one of the lightest TÜV-certified level 2 protector backpacks on the market.
  • FREE PROTECTOR CRASH REPLACEMENT.The TRAIL PRO protector backpack is a real lightweight, offering the latest in back protection technology designed by EVOC with an ideal blend of carrying comfort and flexibility – especially with regard to size and fit.


At its heart is the pre-formed, 168g super-lightweight and ergo- dynamically flexible LITESHIELD PLUS (EN 1621-2) back protector. It offers excellent level 2 impact protection properties and absorbs 95% of the impact energy in a crash. Should the protector be damaged in a serious crash, EVOC will replace it free of charge with their FREE PROTECTOR CRASH REPLACEMENT guarantee.

The best of all worlds: innovative features combine for best-in-class performance

The TRAIL PRO is EVOC’s first backpack to employ weight-saving, pre-formed 3D pads on the back, which not only improve comfort, but also increase air circulation by creating space between the backpack and the rider’s back.

The secret behind the uncompromising fit starts at the top with plenty of space for the neck and clearance to not interfere with the rider’s helmet. Lower down, the Trail Pro has perfect load distribution around the rider’s center of gravity via the wide hip wings. The hip belt tapers from the large mesh pads in the lumbar area and literally hug the rider’s mid-section without restricting their movement – this is appropriately named the BODY HUGGING effect which is already been proven with EVOC’s Explorer Pro backpacks. The breathable, medically- engineered AIRO-FLEX belt provides a strong and comfortable fit.

This is also the first time that EVOC is using its 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 any additional friction or pressure.

The large and easy-to-reach zippered pockets on the hip belt offer ample space for the rain cover, a few snacks, and your phone. The tool compartment in the front can be opened and closed, even with gloves on, offering quick and easy access to the required equipment. The lateral compression belts help to individually adapt the volume of the backpack.

  • Three capacities 10, 16, and 26l
  • Two sizes S / M (for torso lengths 41-48 cm) or L / XL (for torso lengths 48-53 cm)
