Evoc Bike Travel Bag Pro Review
Evoc’s bike travel bag pro is an excellent option for anyone searching for a hardcase-like solution that folds down to the size of a small suitcase. It boasts all of the features expected in a hard case, plus extra convenience and protection provided by its soft-shell reinforced tarpaulin exterior.
This travel case offers a lot of features at an attractive price point, making it worth considering especially if you plan to use it frequently. Furthermore, those who like to pack multiple bikes in one case will find this case ideal as there is ample room for multiple bikes.
The wheel compartments are well designed and easy to access. They feature two 2cm diameter plastic rods for shape, providing extra protection from outside impacts. However, should one break or damage these rods can easily be replaced.
Another convenient feature is the removable frame pad, which fits around the front forks to keep everything secure. This protects your bike’s frame, cassette and disc brakes if you have them installed.
This travel bag is great because it requires no bike prep to use, making it a fast and simple way to transport your bicycle. Although it’s pretty straightforward, label the top tube/front triangle guard and silver mounting stand with your bike’s model number so you don’t have to unpack everything before loading into the bag – especially if traveling internationally. This will save time from having to unpack everything beforehand, which can be tedious if traveling internationally.
The wheel holsters on the rear end are ingenious. They use two 2cm diameter plastic rods as shape, which are easy to replace if broken or damaged. Furthermore, these incredibly secure holsters allow your whole wheel and tire assembly to slide into it without having to remove either disc or cassette removal or tire removal.
This is a huge improvement in bike travel bags, making them far more accessible for those who don’t have the time to pack and unpack a full-sized hardcase. While there’s some learning curve involved with using this bag, once you get it set up properly it won’t be so challenging getting your wheel and tire assemblies in and out.
One of the best features of this case is that it packs down to the size of a small rucksack, and you can remove the four white rods from the wheel pockets to make it even smaller. Though initially difficult to use, once understood and understood, no special equipment or tools are needed for use.
It’s a great case for transporting your bike, but it is quite heavy. If you plan on traveling frequently, something lighter such as the Scicon Aerocomfort 3.0 may be preferable; it lacks hard case protection and is less stable while in transit.
