EVOC - One Year And Counting
EVOC is a new and dynamic company to the Action Sports world, and is honoured to have been embraced so openly by many influential people in the MTB industry. It has been an incredible year for us and we couldn’t have experienced such positive movement without the support and faith in EVOC that the local shops and team members have given us. It’s a little humbling when you’re the new kid, yet you always seem to stay close to those that embrace you from the beginning.
Team riders that have become an integral part of our business are:
STEVE PEAT (GB) | FABIEN BAREL (FRA) | SABRINA JONNIER (FRA) | CEDRIC GRACIA (FRA) | BRETT TIPPIE (CDN) | MARIO LENZEN (GER) | THOMAS ÖHLER (AUT) | RYAN BERRECLOTH (CDN) | THE COASTAL CREW (CDN) (KYLE NORBRATEN - DYLAN DUNKERTON -CURTIS ROBINSON) | EVAN SCHWARTZ (CDN) | TEAM CRAFT-ROCKY MOUNTAIN (INT) (PIA SUNDSTEDT - CARSTEN BRESSER - DANIEL GATHOF - GUIDO THALER - FLORIAN KONIETZKO - DENNIS STRATMANN) |DANIEL SCHÄFER (GER) | MAX SCHUMANN (GER) | MICAYLA GATTO (CDN) | DOMINIC AMBERGER (AUT) | TOBIAS WOGGON (GER) | TINO KÄSSNER (GER) | BRENDAN HOWEY (CDN) | BRYSON MARTIN JUNIOR(USA) | MIKE MONTGOMERY (USA)
On this shoot, we worked exclusively with Ryan Berrecloth and the Coastal Crew. It goes without saying that Ryan is a talented professional freerider and integral spokesperson in the mountain bike community.
Our first time out shooting, we had one goal in mind and that was to work on getting some epic light…that’s what we got!
All our riders have been extremely vocal in the progression of our products. Apart for searching for epic light, Ryan and many others have been testing our products and giving feedback on what we can improve to ensure superior functionality.
Evoc has won numerous awards for its innovative products. Our most recent achievement is the Red Dot Award appointed to the Freeride pack with integrated spine protector. Features on the pack include a pocket for a 3L hydration pack, helmet basket for XC or DH helmets, armor fastening straps and 3 torso sizes to ensure the length of your spine is covered.
Our freeride packs have an integrated and removable CE approved spine protector. A simple zip allows for the pack to be removed if a rider chooses to wear the protector on its own.
Other features that make the packs unique are the integrated kidney belts. These have been integral in the overall fit of the bag and how weight transfer during travel is controlled
Curtis Robinson, Kyle Norbraten and Dylan Dunkerton have really put the gear to the test and have helped with the development of our pick up pads. The new generation of pick up pads will incorporate eyelets that allow the bike to be fastened directly to the tailgate to prevent bikes from movement when in transport. The overall padding has been beefed up and we have added aluminum fasteners, which are thinner and more durable than plastic.
Not only are they good at R&D they can build pretty rad playgrounds…
Evoc is continuing to grow and has many exciting projects on the horizon, two of which being Coastal Crews “From the Inside Out” and Anthill Films “Strength in Numbers.”
