Evoc bike bags have been the benchmark travel case for years and the Danny Mac version is no different. Its uber-cool orange accents and denim-effect styling distinguish it from the rest of the range.
The 280l capacity swallows a 29in-wheeled mountain bike with ease and it’ll happily consume all of your other riding kit too. There’s a plethora of storage compartments, all with rugged zips and tough, abrasion-resistant panelling where necessary.
The design securely stows your frame along with any bits of kit you may want to throw in
The Evoc sits fairly rigid, owing to several glass fibre rods and high-density padding in vulnerable areas, such as wheel pockets, helping to prevent impact damage from potato-fisted baggage handlers. The rods can be easily removed when not in use, allowing you to collapse it for ease of storage, and at 8.6kg, while not light, it’s easily movable.
Fitting your bike inside couldn’t be easier, with only the removal of wheels and handlebars required – it’s so intuitively designed with adjustable straps and moveable padding, you can have your pride and joy safely strapped in in under 15 minutes. But the Evoc’s royal flush is the heavy-duty undercarriage with large skate wheels that sit outboard of its base, making steering a breeze.
