One pack to do it all.
The biggest, burliest pack in Evoc's line, the FR Tour is hardly
just a gear hauler — it's a comfortable, breathable, and well-thought out bike pack with tons of room for lugging gear. Like other Evoc
packs, its made primarily of an ultra-tough and water-resistant
blend of PU-coated ripstop nylons, tarpaulin, and neoprene. The result
is an amazingly light but bombproof pack, and that's only the beginning.
For breathability, the FR Tour uses 3D Air Mesh along its paneled
backing and shoulder straps. To tote all your gear, there are stretchy side pockets
and a swing-open tool compartment, along with the large main storage
area and multiple external straps to carry your helmet, pads, or other
gear. The pack doesn't include a hydration bladder, but because this
pack is all about keeping you going for long days on the trail, it's
ready to accept one up to three liters in size. While it's designed to carry water on the inside, the integrated rain cover means external moisture won't sneak in and soak your gear.
No description of an Evoc Protector pack would be complete without
highlighting the technology that gives it its namesake. All Protector
packs are CE-certified with Evoc's LiteShield back protector, a system
featuring a super-light pad with an EPS core and foam damping layers
that reduce shock to the spine by up to 95% in the event of an accident.
Completely replaceable in the event of being damaged, the ISP
(Integrated Spine Protection) plate and its associated materials only
add approximately 150 grams to each pack into which the system is
integrated, making the decision just that much easier for riders who
ride hard and push their limits.
