FR SUPERTRAIL BOLIVIA (PROTECTOR BACKPACKS)
Travelling and searching for the perfect trail play an essential part in our company’s history. The La Paz region in the Bolivian Andes is where we discovered a bike spot that is truly worthy of the SUPERTRAIL label. We start off at 3803 metres above sea level. It’s cold. The air is thin, we’re almost breathless, and the landscape is just stunning. What follows makes us happy: 1171 metres of downhill riding on a truly amazing single trail. We are dedicating a limited edition to this trail: the FR SUPERTRAIL BOLIVIA. Naturally, this 20-litre PROTECTOR BACKPACK is a design highlight. It comes in a subtle colour blend of olive, light petrol and slate. The trail itself is displayed on the top compartment, true to scale and in vibrant sulphur. Various prints and icons reveal further detailed info about the trail, such as height profile and GPS coordinates.
A TÜV-GS-certified LITESHIELD back protector offers maximum safety, while the superior sophisticated EVOC features make biking in high altitudes a lot easier and more comfortable.
STAGE SERIES (TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS)
Extremely technical and versatile PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS: Backpacks for those who know no compromise when it comes to carrying comfort and back ventilation when biking. The pack boasts top-class features and a reduced design. The AIR FLOW CONTACT back system distributes weight neutrally across the body’s centre of gravity and minimises the contact surface with the back and shoulders to enhance air circulation. This allows for superior freedom of movement while biking, and offers exceptional carrying comfort. Extra convenience comes with the freely moving shoulder straps, which adapt to the wearer’s individual shoulder width. Another plus when it comes to carrying comfort: the unobtrusive BACE LINK. The STAGE is now also available as a 3-litre or 6-litre pack.
CC 3l RACE (TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS)
Biking is our passion. That’s why we are constantly looking for new challenges. This year, an EVOC team premiered in taking part in the legendary CAPE EPIC mountain bike stage race. It’s vital to be perfectly prepared for this kind of race and the extreme challenges it involves, and not only when it comes to physical fitness. That is why our product department has optimised our existing EVOC CC 3l for endurance races. The result is the EVOC CC 3l RACE – a super lightweight, minimalist hydration backpack for marathon races. The highlight is the exceptionally light AIR TUNE back system, which minimises the contact surface with the back and offers maximum ventilation when chasing seconds and altimeters, thanks to ventilation channels and shoulder straps with integrated ventilation holes. Extra-wide, comfortable hip belt wings with zip pockets transfer the weight to the hips and offer additional carrying comfort. Extremely important for racing – not only in South African heat: sufficient liquid intake. As a result the backpack offers space for hydration systems of up to three litres in capacity.
DANNY MACASKILL SERIES (CITY & TRAVEL)
Street trial pro Danny MacAskill is constantly on the road, and never without his bike. And so are we. That is why we have designed the Danny MacAskill signature series for and together with him. It’s characterised by a reduced look and details in vibrant orange. Leading the way is the BIKE TRAVEL BAG MacAskill – for quick and easy packing of the bike. His luggage goes into the lightweight ROVER TROLLEY MacAskill wheelie bag. The individually adaptable compartment configuration offers Danny all the options and flexibility he needs, anytime and anywhere. And last but not least: the STREET MacAskill, a backpack with helmet holder, for travelling and everyday use at home. Extra convenience comes with the padded notebook compartment with quick side access and the secure compartment for transporting an action camera.
