With the STAGE 12l you get a compact technical daypack with excellent features. It’s the number one pack for those looking to ride their bike with little equipment but uncompromising carrying comfort. Extra convenience comes with the freely moving BRACE LINK that allows the shoulder straps to adapt to the individual shoulder width of the wearer.
- AIR FLOW CONTACT SYSTEM offers perfect back ventilation
- BRACE LINK for optimal adjustment of the shoulder straps
- Tool compartment (separate, quick-access)
The perfect backpack is ergonomically adapted in such a way that you hardly feel it on your back. You almost forget that you’re wearing one while riding your bike. And this is precisely what we have focused on in the development of the LITE PERFORMANCE BACKPACKS.
“The secret of such a backpack is its (low) weight on the one hand, and its
ergonomic adaption to the wearer’s body on the other. The outer material of our new CC backpacks, innovative N 100D/ Nano Box Ripstop PU Coated, excels in lightweight characteristics and boasts outstanding abrasion resistance.
Even more complicated than searching for the perfect material is the ergonomic adjustment of the backpack’s fit. Everyone’s body is unique, just like a fingerprint. As a result, the carrying system adapts to the individual anatomy of the wearer. In the development stage, we paid particular attention to the direct contact surfaces between the pack and the back, namely the shoulder straps and the back panel.
We have redesigned the shoulder straps with regard to breathability as well as ergonomics. The integration of our new BRACE LINK system makes for infinite adjustment to the wearer’s individual shoulder width. Air channels in the shoulder straps enable maximum breathability. Both characteristics considerably enhance the carrying comfort.
We’ve optimised our AIR PAD SYSTEM
such that it provides maximum ventilation of the back and ensures perfect load distribution. Strategically positioned pads allow for optimal distribution of weight across the entire back area.
In addition, we have reduced the contact areas to the back, and have used a quick-drying 3D AIRMESH material. This allows air to circulate freely and prevents moisture build-up from sweating, making for balanced temperature control between back and backpack. The new CC line therefore stands for perfect “Climate Control”.
Eight years ago the BIKE TRAVEL BAG marked the beginning of the EVOC story, and EVOC has been pioneering the BIKE TRAVEL segment ever since. The 2017 innovation is the BIKE STAND, a transportation aid that can be used with our BIKE TRAVEL BAGS. With a range of adjustment options, it allows for mounting of all conventional bike types. Easy to assemble, the BIKE STAND reduces packing time of the bike and provides for more safety while travelling.
This is the story of a very special mountainbike challenge.
