Today EVOC pulled the curtains off of a few new interesting products. First off, they launched the Explorer Pro bags in both 26L and 30L. As you might have assumed by the name, the bags are designed around multi day rides and overnights – therefore they’re built with support and efficiency in storage in mind. Secondly, they launched the Bike Travel Bag XL; an expansion of their brilliant bike bag line. This goal of this bag is to fit fat tires and longer wheelbases as well as larger bikes in general. Got an XL DH bike? No problem…Read on for the press release and details on these products below.
Perfect load distribution and a body-hugging fit are key for lightweight action on multi-day tours with a lot of gear. That’s why we have redesigned our AIRFLOW CONTACT SYSTEM especially for the EXPLORER PRO. Our goal was to prevent pressure points even when the backpack load exceeds the recommended maximum weight of up to 10 percent of your body weight, as well as to keep the contact points between body and backpack dry and comfortable. Special 3D AIRMESH material absorbs moisture, dries quickly and ensures superior ventilation and air-flow. In addition, extremely soft EVA padding with excellent cushioning capabilities and integrated ventilation channels has been used in the back section, shoulder straps and at the hips.
We’ve also added a new striking feature to our ergonomic carrying system and patented BRACE-LINK system with straps that automatically adapt to the wearer’s shoulder width, namely softly padded, extra wide hip wings with integrated large zipped hip pockets that “grow out” of the backpack’s main body. A bionic connection does not only make for brilliant load and weight distribution towards the hips but also creates the so-called BODY HUGGING effect. The backpack virtually becomes one with your body and stays in that position even on downhill runs! Thanks to breathable AIROFLEX material in the elastic hip belt, riders enjoy unlimited freedom of movement and outstanding wearing comfort.
ORGANISATION IS EVERYTHING
When it comes to compartment organisation the EXPLORER PRO is a real masterpiece that helps make sure you don’t forget any essentials at home, even while packing.
To enable easy access and an overview you can open up the cavernous main compartment completely. You can also adjust its volume by means of the integrated roll-up feature at the bottom, or partition it off for dirty laundry or rain apparel, for example, which you can then also easily access using a zip at the base of the backpack.
To make sure your bike dream does not turn into a nightmare for your bike buddies, the pack comes with a removable colour-matching WASH POUCH in the main compartment.
Featuring a great number of pockets for necessities, the front compartment with quick access is like an integrated little on-the-go workshop. You can also store the EVOC TOOL POUCH and various maps in this compartment.
Enjoy the ultimate flow without having to constantly remove the backpack, thanks to integrated, conveniently accessible hip pockets with additional stowage space for your energy bars, a small camera, your smartphone and even a FIRST AID KIT, without adding bulk.
A separate compartment for a hydration system of up to 3 litres, together with the water bottle on the bike, ensures an optimum liquid supply just in case there is no mountain stream in sight for a while. The drinking tube on the shoulder strap makes it easy to drink even during maximum action.
Our talented organiser also sports a flexible external compartment, an inside fleece pocket for your sunglasses, a helmet holder and an integrated rain cover with 5,000 mm breathability –for the hip pockets as well.
And since every adventure already starts in your head, EVOC has printed a detailed pack list for multi-day mountain bike trip on the hangtag of the EXPLORER PRO.
DEVELOPED TO WITHSTAND THE ELEMENTS
The upper material of the EXPLORER PRO is made of abrasion-resistant, durable 420D nylon, while the bottom section features 600D nylon, which can withstand even sharp rocks and edges. On the inside, all of the nylon sections are PU-coated, providing them with an impressive water-resistance of 1,500 mm.
To ensure the perfect relation of body height, weight, torso length and backpack volume, the EXPLORER PRO is available in two versions: the new 26 l capacity pack with a back length of 48 cm corresponds to a size S (like the EVOC PROTECTOR BACKPACKS), while the multi-faceted 30 l version with a back length of 52 cm corresponds to size M/L. Three different colour variations are available for each pack volume.

Bike Travel Bag XL
EVOC stands for safe bike adventures and is dedicated to developing the smartest, most functional transport solutions for unforgettable journeys with your bike. Whether it’s Alaska on your fat bike or Kazakhstan with an extra large Gravity bike – the BIKE TRAVEL BAG XL with separate side compartments for the wheels accommodates bikes with a wheelbase of up to 125 cm while offering plenty of stowage space for additional equipment. Both 26 inch fat bikes with a wheelbase of up to 4.8 inches and Plus bikes between 26 and 29 inches with a wheelbase of up to 3.5 inches are easily packed and transported.
The VARIABLE FRAME FIXATION EQUIPMENT (VAFFE) offers excellent flexibility for vertical, central fixation of various different frame types in the bag with an additional rigid foam block protecting the fork from damage and safely securing the handlebar (non-contacting). Sensitive sections of the bike are perfectly protected and cushioned thanks to reinforcements at critical points.
The extra wide, impact-resistant monocoque chassis with smooth-running, exchangeable skate wheels prevents the bag from tilting, while lightweight aluminium rails provide even more stability without adding unnecessary weight. Perfect positioning of the centre of gravity ensures that you can pull and move the travel bag effortlessly, while a great variety of handles – above the wheels among others – enable easy lifting and loading.
Zipping and unzipping the BIKE TRAVEL BAG XL is as easy and convenient as folding it to a size of 143 x 42 x 28 cm for storing.
