Mar 12, 2019
by EVOC Sports GmbH  

PRESS RELEASE: EVOC

During the celebrations for our 10 years anniversary, we opened up our catacombs for Danny MacAskill! The trial genius digs deep into the archives and travels through time himself - from the beginnings of his career to the EVOC NEO 16l backpack with the revolutionary AIRSHIELD protector, which he himself helped to develop.

Perfectly in time for the bike season 2019, we are launching our new NEO16l protector backpack with the specially developed AIRSHIELD SYSTEM. The AIRSHIELD combines maximum impact protection, ergo-dynamic flexibility and innovative 360° ventilation. The NEO16l will be available in April 2019 and comes in Gold or Carbon Grey.

 They may be pricey but they last forever. Ive used one of their packs for communting, day in, day out in UK weather for 8 years and its still as good as new (functionally and visually). Think of how many packs you would go through in that time and its more of a good investment

 I have to disagree. I have my Evoc FR and unfortunately after 2 years it started to unravel (all inner pockets, the zips don't work properly). I'm still using it as my secondary backpack but unfortunately, it's not fully functional as before.

 I will have to disagree with this. Had my Evoc backpack for a week and decided to wash it. No instructions on the backpack about washing so I assumed it was machine safe (in cold water too). The backpack material fell apart immediately after that.

I emailed Evoc wondering if this was normal. Their response was that you are only supposed to hand wash the backpacks with a sponge and some soap. They then linked me to a page on their website outlining the instructions to clean it.

I won't buy another backpack from them. I don't understand how a biking backpack can be so fragile.

Only positive thing was a leather smith I know fixed it for free, the backpack is now really strong because half of its leather.

 Good lord, what other stuff have you "just tossed in the washer" cuz it didn't say not to? A brick? Fruit? A cat? Half eaten slice of pizza?

 @pigman65: Guaranteed for life and they replace individual parts.

 I wish I had a reason to sell mines and get these beauty! But you're right, they will last forever, from skiing to MTB, great quality, construction and materials.

 I have to disagree, Orsprey , camelback's, and few others holds 5 the year in a row, friends who have evoc, upgrade them in few years due to weather and tear aspects

 Same here, I use it everywhere, school, travel and riding for like five years. And it is still good as new, but during these time, the plastic zipper grips were all fell off and the bottom of the backpack had worn through. But consider how I use it, the quality is really good!

 Now, let’s have a fannypack with integrated back protector

 How come the length of the protector in the previous EVOCs is close to half the length of the backpack itself? I have been wondering about how short it is on mine compared to the whole back side and the new one obviously has this done differently...
  • + 3
 I'm not sure which models you're talking about - I have the FR Enduro and the protector is very nearly as long as the backpack.
  • + 3
 Are you sure you've bought the right size backpack for your length? Their backprotectors come in different sizes in the same backpacks, depending on the user's size.
  • + 1
 I have the FR Enduro size M/L. Never have seen anywhere that tthe protector is different size, only the backpac coems in 3 sizes. It is a bit long for me across my whole back but fits good enough while the protector is more of a square pad far from going all the length...this is strange
  • + 1
 Good question. I have the Evoc FR Trail Blackline 20l and it has a fairly minimalist back protector in it. It's one of the reasons I bought it, for that "little bit" more protection. I use it as carry on for travelling, so I take out the protector for a bit more space and flexibility to stuff it in the overhead bin.

 Best pack made. Mine lasted for 4 years before some bum decided to steal it out of my truck. Everything still worked just had a decent sweat stain on the straps Wink . Looking into getting this new version.

 nice kit, people gawking at the price should research comparable packs from other companies, companies that dont even specify bikes as their focus, good kit is never cheap.

 Danny should launch his own brand of Bikes.
SkiLTec frames, Whipsy wheels, Mack bars all that may exsist already. But a freaking backpack? What's next training bras?

 I love my Evoc gear and would like to get the photography pack CP35L but damn that Enve pricing. Holy fu%k.

 You live in Switzerland. Should be same price as a carton of milk for you?
  • + 16
 @MTB-Colada: it is, but your argument fails to acknowledge how f*cking expensive milk is over here!
  • + 2
 I've been running the CP35 for 3 years now, and it's still in mint condition, even with my complete disregard for its handling. Definitely expensive, but I'd only be replacing it once every 5-6 years or so, so not too bad.
  • + 1
 @DemoB: have you had a chance to compare it to the Burton Zoom? I know the EVOC is better quality than the Burton but its also almost 4X the cost. The Burton costs a carton of milk. The Evoc is more like angus steak which requires a mortgage.

 @MTB-Colada: The cows dont even get payed & is that why Swiss chocolate so expensive ?
  • + 2
 @Boardlife69: Also ich habe den CP35 jetzt schon einige Jahre. Das Ding ist echt sein Geld wert. Wenn du Equipment für fast 20'000 CHF mit dir rum trägst, und das geht da gut rein, sollten die 270.- für einen anständigen Rucksack also auch noch drin liegen. Ich würde ihn wieder kaufen.

 Well making a back pack back protector seems like a good idea, but in real terms, both make you hot & sweaty so only solution is none?
  • + 6
 The protector does more than just protect the back in case of a spill. No matter what you throw in the back, the back side it stay flat, and that is very very very comfortable. I use my evoc for everything and never take out the protection.
  • + 3
 @polarproton: can confirm, it's no hotter than wearing a regular backpack and I like the way it sits on my back too. Wearing a back protector alone is no different heat-wise and for me, riding without back protection is not an option.
  • + 4
 lets be real, backpacks suck and youre gonna sweat regardless so you might as well have protection and a stiffening element to keep the pack in shape while youre at it.
  • + 8
 I have a Camelback Kudu and it only gets uncomfortable on really hot days and not much more than a regular backpack. It's a no brainer really, I'd rather be slightly uncomfortable than damage my spine in a crash.

 The one I have is great because you can just pull the back protector out if you want to.

Maybe time for a third?!

 Why do I confuse Danny MacAskill with Danny McBride.
