THE SEARCH FOR THE BEST TRAILS AND POWDER LINES
For many years we have travelled the world looking for perfect trails and powder lines.
We discovered amazing places and found some incredible runs. Finding suitable gear was never easy – the market just didn’t offer the packs and bags we had in mind.
So we started designing and manufacturing gear to meet our needs: High-quality, sophisticated products with sensible features. The idea to establish EVOC was born when more and more other people started asking for our gear.
MULTICOLOUR - THE COLOURS OF TRAVELLING
In 2019, vivid travel memories previously stored in our luggage will take to the road in all their glory: on our recent mountain bike road trip to the best trails in Mexico, we have experienced the most beautiful landscapes. The unique hues of those landscapes serve as inspiration for our brand-new MULTICOLOUR EDITION.
TRAIL EXPLORING // LIGURIA
Now, is that good or bad? The clouds have meanwhile become so thick that I can no longer see how far the drop right next to me is. Well, it’s definitely deep enough not to hear the rock I’ve just dislodged hitting the ground at the bottom. The trail which has been carved into the rock face is just about wide enough for me and my bike, and thank goodness for the steel rope that seems to be firmly anchored in the rock, but which disappears further ahead in the thick fog.
Mission Sveit // ICELAND
Amazing lights, incredible landscapes – and an incredibly intense smell of fish. It feels like a mixture of old chewing gum and dried out toothpaste in my mouth and the taste is like very, very, very old Munster cheese dipped in fish sauce.
SQUAWK // A TRIP TO LOFOTEN
Since the entire Legs Of Steel crew was involved in the biggest ski film project ever last year (“Passenger”), it was plain that Paddy and I would be making another banger trip in 2016: into the north of Norway, to Lofoten!

VIETNAM VELOCITY // BIKEPACKING
It’s mid-December when my phone rings and Marketing Manager Jan Sallawitz asks if I would like to travel to Vietnam in January for a photo shoot of the new EVOC CC. I’m speechless. Me, in Vietnam, as a model? But then again, opportunities like this don’t come along often! I agree spontaneously, without knowing what to expect.
Almost like a slanted Table Mountain, the Hoher Ifen towers above the Kleinwalsertal valley. At a height of 2229 m, it is not exactly a giant, but its particular shape makes it really special. For years we have been dreaming of climbing it and this year everything finally seems right.
FINISHED: A HANDICAPPED EPIC
This is the story of a very special mountainbike challenge. South Africa - one team - two riders - one transtibial prosthesis - eight days - 739 kilometers - 16,000 m altitude gain - the toughest mountain bike race in the world: Cape Epic!
