Versatile, technical daypack with excellent features and configuration. It's that "one for all" backpack that knows no compromise when it comes to carrying comfort and back ventilation during biking. The series is characterised by the BRACE LINK carrying system, which adapts to the wearer's individual shoulder width.
In the development of the STAGE SERIES Evoc has put great emphasis on creating backpacks with sophisticated technical features which provide optimal support, and at the same time form a unit with the bike rider. A secure, body-hugging fit and maximum air ventilation were the key focus, without the backpacks appearing overloaded. That is why the design is relatively clean while still offering enough space for equipment, and safe storage options for everything you don't need immediately at hand.
The AIR FLOW CONTACT SYSTEM ensures maximum back ventilation while the backpack sits as close to the rider's back as possible. This keeps control of load distribution and provides for excellent freedom of movement on the bike. You hardly feel the pack on your back. The BRACE LINK - that small piece of metal - also influences carrying comfort considerably. It's the connecting link between backpack and shoulder strap and enables the carrying system to adapt to the rider's individual shoulder width.

Technologies of the Evoc STAGE
The AIR CIRCULATION SYSTEM is featured in all Evoc PERFORMANCE line backpacks, because it guarantees perfect ventilation even during high-sweat and high-strain activities. Lateral cut-outs along the channel enable even more air to flow out. In addition, the padding along the sides of the back has been reduced to
further optimise air outflow, without restricting the carrying comfort.
AIR FLOW CONTACT SYSTEM
The requirement here is to transfer even larger loads to the body's centre of gravity such that they become neutral, while at the same time minimising the contact areas with the back and shoulders. Evoc solved this contradiction by means of a back component where all ventilation components such as large ventilation channels (see illustration 01) and specially grooved and perforated EVA pads (see illustration 02) behind mesh material have practically been moved to the inside. This ensures that the pack fits close to the back and simultaneously provides optimised back ventilation. Hip belt wings with air mesh and ventilation slots extend the concept of a close-fitting yet well ventilated back system in terms of load transfer and carrying area.
The AIRO FLEX is an extremely durable fabric that is both air-permeable and flexible. We use this material in our highest-quality hip belts, where it ensures excellent load distribution to the hips as well as maximum ventilation - for superior wearing comfort.
The BRACE LINK adjusts the shoulder belts perfectly to the width of the athletes shoulders. This automatically adjustment endorse the load transfer to the body's centre of gravity, while at the same time the contact areas with back and shoulders are minimized. Even wearing a neck brace is possible through the BRACE LINK.
N210 D Ripstop PU coated
The demands for the perfect outer material of a backpack can be summed up in four characteristics: durable, abrasion resistant, water repellent and very light. This is exactly what our Nylon 210/D Ripstop offers. A double PU-coating of the lightweight nylon base provides moisture protection and wear resistance. A micro texture of filaments segments the basic fabric into tiny squares to prevent rips – hence the name Ripstop.
P600 D PU coated
A very durable fabric for high-abrasion areas, it is also tear-resistant and lightweight while absorbing almost no moisture. Combining these characteristics, it’s the perfect material for high-stress pockets or backpack base constructions.
The VENTI FLAP system enables folding the back piece away for maximum ventilation, and thus enhanced carrying comfort. During longer ascents, you can increase the distance to your back
by opening the adjustment strap to boost air circulation. During descents you can reduce the distance again, which then ensures that the backpack sits firmly and is completely neutral to movement.
