Evoc news 2017: technical performance packs
Whether it’s high-strain uphill cycling, casual bike lines in the park or a relaxing after-work ride: The small HIP PACK RACE from EVOC’s TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE LINE allows for excellent freedom of movement on the bike, while offering three litres of capacity, a sophisticated compartment structure, and a variable carrying system for any kind of uphill and downhill ventures.
We have adapted the proven AIR FLOW CONTACT back system of our TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS to ensure perfect performance. Specific cut-outs reduce the contact area to the lower back significantly to enable cooling air circulation. Wide, ventilated hip flippers make sure the HIP PACK RACE stays in position. A new feature of the back system is the VENTI FLAP SYSTEM, which can be individually adjusted and regulates the distance to the back, thereby providing ventilation of the contact area.
When you are cycling uphill, you can fold away the HIP PACK RACE. When your ride downhill all you need to do is pull the strap, and the hip back is securely fastened on the lower back. Loose straps uphill: optimised ventilation and better freedom of movement on the bike. Tightened straps downhill: proximity to the body for stability and neutrality to movement.
It’s a matter of course for EVOC: A cleverly laid-out compartment structure with tool pocket, external pockets and two interior compartments offer sufficient space for tools, snacks, keys, smartphone etc.
The Munich-based brand has also looked to provide riders with enough liquid while they are riding their bikes: The HIP PACK RACE accommodates a 1.5-litre drinking bladder. But where do you put the drinking tube? Thanks to a specific magnetic system you can direct it along the hip belt. If you prefer to position it the classical way you can attach the magnetic clip to your jacket, too.
Anyways, the tube clicks into place automatically which means you don’t have to fiddle around with it while riding your bike.
