You'll struggle to find a group of cyclists who travel more with their bikes than Triathletes, and to gain a good review for from a leading Triathlete magazine is true testament to how great Evoc's bike bag is.

Packing bikes in the Evoc is quicker than most and doesn't require Krypton Factor thinking to squeeze everything in. The large side opening makes for easy access and provides a base to kneel and work from. Frame padding to protect top and down tubes from the bars is provided and everything is labelled and secured with either Velcro straps or Fastex clips. For road and time trial bikes an extra fork padding kit is required. The bottom bracket and rear end of the bike sits on an adjustable padded foam block. This keeps the chainset off the floor and mech out of harms way. Out of habit we did remove the mech and use a plastic spacer on the rear dropouts - not that we needed to. Wheels are stowed in side pockets which left us a little sceptical but these have supporting plastic ribs and we've had no problems even after several flights. The wheel pockets are located at the back end of the bag which keeps weight over the widely spaced wheels which helps with stability when dragging the Evoc. While we've long been fans of hard cases the biggest problem, besides outlay, is weight. With airline restrictions getting tighter this is hard to ignore. The Evoc comes in under eight kilogrammes, which is about five less than most hard cases, so you can still get a pump, tools and some race kit in. The Evoc makes other soft bags look silly and we're now as happy to use this as a hard case because of the protection it offers. The design is insightful inside and out, with handles in all the right places. It's a clever durable bike bag that has been thoroughly thought through.
