COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18
The COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18* is the world's first cycling backpack with an integrated airbag and back protector - developed to significantly minimize the risk of injury for modern city bikers. In the event of a fall, the MINERVA AIRBAG SYSTEM's sensor-controlled airbag inflates in less than 0.2 seconds and protects the cyclist's neck, shoulders, collarbones and chest, while the LITESHIELD PLUS back protector offers protection for the spine. These two technologies combined in the backpack can reduce up to 80 % of the impact forces that occur during a fall. 
In addition, the backpack made of recycled Polyester has all the features that bike commuters want on their way through the city: 18 litres of packing volume, a padded laptop compartment with lateral quick access, D-lock-, phone-, sunglasses- and organizer-compartments, maximum carrying comfort and a perfect fit. A set of glow-in-the-dark CARGO STRAPS are included to complement the COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18's reflective prints for enhanced visibility in traffic. 

  • Airbag system developed together with Minerva-AS GmbH
  • Chest strap with magnetic FIDLOCK buckle activates the MINERVA AIRBAG SYSTEM
  • 32 h battery life, rechargeable via USB-C connection 
  • Filling of the airbag via MINERVA INFLATOR (CO2 cartridge with ignition module) 
  • After a fall with release and inspection of the airbag for damage, the system can be used again with a new inflator
  • Software updates, battery charge status and other services available via smartphone app
  • Application and temperature range from 0 °C to +40 °C 
*Shipping to islands that can only be reached by sea or air is not possible. This applies, for example, to the Azores, the Balearic Islands, Madeira, Corsica, Spitsbergen and, in some cases, Danish islands, as well as to locations with identical postal codes on the mainland.

Highlights // Features

COMMUTING

Mobility, especially in urban areas, is changing rapidly. Congestion of motor vehicle infrastructure in cities, growing environmental awareness and a mega trend towards a healthier lifestyle are facilitators of this change. 

Poor bicycle infrastructure fuels fear of accidents and the resulting injuries which is what constitutes one of the main inhibitors of bicycle traffic. This is what sparked EVOC to make bike commuting safer and more comfortable with the products of the COMMUTING line from 2023.

From zero to safe in 0.2 seconds

The magnetic buckle on the chest strap is responsible for activating and deactivating the airbag. The sensory unit, which is USB-chargeable, is equipped with six sensors enabling it to analyze the position of the backpack, i.e. the rider up to 1,100 times per second. 

Once the deployment criteria are met, the airbag inflates within just 0.2 seconds, hereby unfolding its full protective effects for the cervical spine, shoulders, collar bones and chest. The mechanical deployment is implemented via the activation of an e-igniter. After the airbag has been deployed and checked for damage, the system can simply be reused with a new cartridge.

DESIGN & INNOVATION AWARD 2022

"If you fall, the airbag inflates in a flash. In addition, the backpack has all the features needed for work and leisure: sensible organisation, a laptop sleeve and a compartment for a bottle. Even the topic of sustainability hasn’t been ignored. The bag is made from recycled polyester and the airbag is reusable, requiring only a new inflation cartridge – great! 

Thanks to the hip belt and ergonomic carrying system, the backpack sits well on the back. All this makes it a stylish companion for cyclists in the urban jungle, offering an enormous boost to safety and encouraging more people to dare to ride their bikes in the city."
