100210222 EXPLORER PRO 30l smallPerfect load distribution and a body-hugging fit are key for lightweight action on multi-day bike 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 bike touring 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

100211511 EXPLORER PRO 26l dt6 smallWhen it comes to compartment organisation the EXPLORER PRO makes 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. 100210222 EXPLORER PRO 30l dt9 small
 

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. 
100210222 EXPLORER PRO 30l dt7 small
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.
 

100211511 EXPLORER PRO 26l dt5 smallOur 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


100210222 EXPLORER PRO 30l dt3 smallThe 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 EXPLORER PRO 26l capacity pack with a back length of 48 cm corresponds to a size S (like the EVOC PROTECTOR BACKPACKS), while the multi-faceted EXPLORER PRO 30l version with a back length of 52 cm corresponds to size M/L. Three different colour variations are available for each pack volume.

NEW EVOC TEAM ATHLETES: TEAL STETSON-LEE, HARALD PHILIPP AND THOMAS GENON

Thursday, 22 June 2017
EVOC Teal stetson lee low

Ladies first! US-American Teal Stetson-Lee lives and breathes her passion for biking 150% and is considered a jackpot for EVOC. A former ski racer, Teal is among the strongest women on the professional Enduro scene. She organises events such as the “CrossReno Cyclocross Events & Music Festivals”, and is an opinion leader, advisor, motivator and entrepreneur. If there is such a thing as free time for Teal, she enjoys exploring the trails of her home turf near the gambling mecca of Reno in Nevada with her crosser or mountain bike. Teal’s extraordinary optimism and intense charisma have made her an important icon in the world of women’s biking – it’s not surprising therefore that we have chosen the lively athlete as their brand ambassador. Thanks to her varied athletic experience she’s able to provide valuable input to our products.


EVOC harald philippA little less high-speed but a lot more risky – that’s how you would describe Harald Philipp’s daily business. The Via Ferratta in the Dolomite Alps has so far been his greatest challenge and an impressive demonstration of this guy’s greatest passion – bike mountaineering. Harald Philipp is convinced that you only experience the ultimate flow when you start reaching the limit of your comfort zone. To get to this stage the Tyrolean needs to explore his limits time and again – and he does that in his very own unique way! Hardly any other mountain bike rider tackles such exposed areas. Harald has already contributed his knowledge about extreme strain and his experience with exceptionally challenging situations to the development of the EVOC BIKE 2018 product highlights.

Our third new entry to the team is Thomas Genon aka Tommy G. who has been a constant among the world’s best slopestyle mountain bike riders. Coming from the BMX, downhill mountain bike and dual slalom circuit, the talented Belgian transferred his skills and tricks to slopestyle mountain biking, where he has been reaching top rankings for years. Among them are wins at the Red Bull Joyride, Crankworx and a third place in the overall ranking of the FMB World Tour 2012. When it comes to equipment Tommy G. likes to be on the safe side: “EVOC products are really reliable – when I’m on the road I know that I won’t have problems with EVOC. My current favourite is the DUFFLE BAG because it’s absolutely perfect for short trips. It’s so handy and yet I can fit everything I need in it.” EVOC thomas genon low

For us, the new team members are much more than just brand ambassadors. “Our athletes are not only part of a sponsoring programme, but actively support us in the development of our products. That’s why we always work with athletes who are absolute experts in their relevant discipline. And it goes without saying that they all share our passion for sports and travelling”, says Jessica Negele, Team and Marketing Manager at EVOC. “Our three new additions to the team will contribute their individual knowledge – Harald’s focus is on exposed trails which require loads of luggage and equipment, but with a backpack that should not bother him during ascents and descents. Teal is more part of the racing scene and will provide valuable feedback in the field of Enduro biking. And Thomas’ input will be particularly valuable for our CITY & TRAVEL and BIKE TRAVEL BAG products.”

DESIGN AND INNOVATION AWARD: THE HIP PACK RACE

Wednesday, 11 January 2017

We got the Design & Innovation Award 2017 for our new-interpretation of a true classic from the '90s - the fanny pack or hip pack.

We call it the HIP PACK RACE. Here is the statement of the jury:


While it might sound like a poor throwback from the ‘90s, this EVOC HIP PACK RACE fortunately has very little in common with the earlier decade’s trashy bumbags. The DI.A test team were astonished by the comfort of the hip pack and the high quality of production, although that’s admittedly pretty typical for EVOC. The hip pack has a 3-litre volume, with room for a 1.5 litre bladder and your ride essentials. The perfect choice for flow trails where shoulder straps become redundant, the EVOC HIP PACK RACE creates that sacred backpack-less zen state of riding with full freedom to throw yourself around on the bike.There’s no risk of your lower back over-heating thanks to the ingenious strap system, and the additional strap to fine-tune the distance between the pack and your back means you can control the interplay of ventilation and fit.

 



But why did WE decide to make a Hip Pack?

Our team riders have convinced us: you don't always need a backpack for racing or short after-work bike tours. Call it a belt bag, a bum bag or a "wimmerl" in bavarian slang - with the clever HIP PACK RACE we watch the backs of riders who like ravel light.

We have adapted the proven TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS to ensure perfect performance. A new feature of the back system is the VENTI FLAP SYSTEM which can be individually adjusted and regulates the distance to the back, thereby providing ventilation of the contact area.

102501100 HIP PACK RACE 3l dt3 medium

A cleverly laid-out compartment structure with tool pocket, external pockets and two interior compartments offer sufficient space for tools, snacks, keys, smartphone etc. The HIP PACK RACE accommodates a 1.5-litre drinking bladder.

The VENTI FLAP system enables folding the back piece away for maximum ventilation, and thus enhanced carrying comfort. During longer ascents, you can increase the distance to your back by opening the adjustment strap to boost air circulation.

During descents you can reduce the distance again, which then ensures that the backpack sits firmly and is completely neutral to movement.
