First Look | EVOC Presents Its New Products For 2016

Everyone agrees that having to head off on a quick post-work ride with a huge backpack sucks! Thankfully, the guys and girls at EVOC share this opinion and that’s why they’ve now expanded their Stage collection. First launched last year and already a winner of the Design & Innovation Award, there are now two more models in the collection. What’s more, the Munich-based company have just released yet another super compact and lightweight backpack, the CC 3L Race, which is particularly suited for marathon riders.

EVOC CC 3L Race

Your pulse is racing, your muscles are burning, and you’re regretting not having put your jacket on as the headwind picks up. Stopping and digging into your backpack isn’t an option – this is a race. Occasions like this are one of the reasons that inspired EVOC to develop their new CC 3L Race backpack. This minimal model isn’t just incredibly lightweight and well ventilated, but it gives quick and easy access to all your race essentials.

The new EVOC CC 3L Race comes in various colours with a 2-litre bladder. It retails at 90 €.

EVOC Stage 3L & Stage 6L

At last year’s Eurobike, EVOC seized the chance to present the Airflow Contact System, which makes up the back part of the backpack. Back then, it was only used in the Stage 12l and Trace 18l, but now the Munich-based team have expanded this collection to make use of this supremely ventilated back section with the addition of two further models and the formal inclusion of the 18L into the Stage family.

Both the Stage 6L and the Stage 3L will be available in several colours.

Unlike the 12L model, EVOC have opted for a skinnier waist belt on the more compact 3L model, as the smaller pack will carry less weight and this has meant that ventilation has been yet further improved.

The Airflow Contact System should – as the name suggests – guarantee good ventilation and a tight fit to your back.

Thanks to the Brace Link System the backpack is easily adjusted to fit your shoulders, whatever their width, and it also allows for use of a neck-brace at the same time.

First Aid Kit

Along with experts from the Alpine Association, EVOC have developed a comprehensive first aid kit. Unlike others of its kind, this one will primarily contain the urgent essentials for mountain accidents. This includes a self-adhesive plaster/steri-strip/butterfly stitch, a crepe bandage and sufficient strapping bandages amongst others. Prices are TBA.

Inconspicuous it may be, but the EVOC first aid kit has it all.
