EVOC COMMUTING - SAFETY FIRST IN THE URBAN BIKE JUNGLE
EVOC Sports, global market leader for backpacks with back protectors, is presenting the new COMMUTING Capsule Collection for modern city cyclists from SPRING/SUMMER 2023. At the heart of the range is the COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18 - the first bike backpack with integrated airbag and back protector in the world.
Life in the city knows no rest. Be it for work or leisure - urban life requires flexible mobility. Like more and more other commuters, the team at EVOC also prefer to ride the bike. Cycling through the city offers the fastest route through the rush hour and the necessary space to clear your mind. But not everybody feels comfortable in the hectic bustle of road traffic. The COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18 was specifically developed to drastically reduce the risk of injuries for bike commuters, but all the other products of the COMMUTING Capsule Collection are focussed on protection, innovation, comfort and style, too.
Quickly and safely through the city - and all essentials for work, sports and leisure activities at hand at all times - the new EVOC COMMUTING Capsule Collection.
COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18
The COMMUTE A.I.R. PRO 18 is setting new standards in terms of protecting urban cyclists. The world's first cycling backpack with an integrated airbag and back protector - developed to significantly minimize the risk of injury for modern city bikers. In the event of a fall, the MINERVA AIRBAG SYSTEM's sensor-controlled airbag inflates in less than 0.2 seconds and protects the cyclist's neck, shoulders, collarbones and chest, while the LITESHIELD PLUS back protector offers protection for the spine. These two technologies combined in the backpack can reduce up to 80 % of the impact forces that occur during a fall.Activation and deactivation of the airbag system (developed in collaboration with MINERVA-AS GmbH) is implemented by closing the magnetic FIDLOCK buckle on the chest strap. Once activated, the USB-chargeable sensory system analyses the position of the backpack 1,100 times a second. In case of a fall, the airbag is ignited and unfolds its protective capacities within fractions of a second. When the airbag has been activated and after a thorough examination for any damage, it can be reused with a new inflator. If the removable back protector shows any signs of damage after a crash, it will be replaced within our FREE PROTECTOR CRASH REPLACEMENT warranty.
In addition, the backpack made of recycled Polyester has all the features that bike commuters want on their way to work or leisure activities: various organisation compartments for a laptop and smaller items, maximum comfort and a reliable fit.
RRP: 990 €, available from autumn 2022 on www.evocsports.com and from spring 2023 at select retailers.
COMMUTE PRO 22
The COMMUTE PRO 22 is a protector backpack for bicycle commuters and an ideal companion in city traffic. Its integrated, particularly light and flexible LITESHIELD PLUS back protector has outstanding impact absorption (certified to EN 1621-2; Level 2) and protects large parts of the spine in the event of a fall.
In addition, the backpack made from recycled polyester stands out for its high wearing comfort and smart pocket management optimized for the everyday life of city bikers. Seamless shoulder straps and a height-adjustable AIRO FLEX hip belt ensure even weight distribution and a reliable, comfortable fit, while the AIR CIRCULATION ventilation system keeps the back dry even on hot days. Numerous extra compartments for a D-lock, phone, water bottle, sunglasses and more, a padded laptop compartment that can be quickly accessed from the side, as well as practical features such as a key holder or multifunctional attachment lugs allow for optimal organisation in everyday commuting.
