World premiere COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18: an airbag backpack for cycling (Patent Pending)
EVOC Sports is introducing the world’s first bike backpack with integrated airbag technology and is hereby endeavoring to reduce the risk of injury for commuters from now on. The COMMUTE A.I.R.

The products within this range offer innovative approaches regarding the protection of cyclists in traffic and well-thought-out, contemporary transport solutions.
Safety first in the urban cycling jungle: the backpack synergizes the protection of state-of-the-art, revolutionary airbag technology with the LITESHIELD PLUS BACK PROTECTOR.

The wide-opening main compartment provides quick access to all the contents at all times. The 3D-molded back portion offers perfect ventilation as well as an optimum of comfort.

The EVOC COMMUTING range is completed by the 16 and 26 liter DUFFLE BACKPACKs which are available from November 2021 in the EVOC TRAVEL line. They feature convenient accessories like a rain cover, a smartphone pocket and a bottle. The water resistant backpack made of 100 % PVC free outer material withstands any shower and the variable aluminium buckle on the lid lets you adapt its size to the contents. Cleverly positioned pockets and easy-to-reach lateral compartments for a laptop, a smartphone, keys in the back section keep everything within reach at all times.
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.
The concept will be available with our SPRING/SUMMER 2023 collection in summer 2022. A CAPSULE COLLECTION will combine EVOC DNA with breakthrough protection technology. Complemented by favorites from the TRAVEL COLLECTION and accessories for the way through the urban jungle.
