Evoc previews EuroBike w/ Lite Performance backpacks and Race Hip pack

evoc_fanny_pack_trail_rear

I’m not the best at keeping a pack on me while riding, and my friends remind me of this every time I get a flat. Having a pack of some kind to carry tools to get yourself out of a pinch, or enough water to last the journey, can make or break a long day of riding. Evoc provides a range of bags that suit many needs, if it’s strapped to a back, hugging a hip, or clipped to a saddle they’ve probably got it.

We’ve been given a sneak peek at weights and features of what’s to come for EuroBike next month…

EB15: Alpine Prints from Maloja – Most Coordinated Line-up of Eurobike

Maloja_Rock&Roll_Spring-Summer-2016_womens-alpine-flowers-swallow_range

We’ve admired the designs from German clothing maker Maloja for a few seasons, but hadn’t really had the chance to take a deeper look at how far their coordinated design language goes. But this year at Eurobike we had a chat with a couple of the folks behind the new line-up for next spring and summer, and were surprised at how far they tie-in. On both the women’s and men’s sides, Hawaiian-style prints get a lot of play, but both get unique design patterns that incorporate flora and fauna from closer to Malojas home in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. And while the prints can get a bit busy, they can always be tied in with simpler designs (like the jersey on the right) and even solids as well.

Join us after the break for a closer look at the alpine designs and where you will find them, as well as a bit of tech on their mixed weather One-beats-Two kit…
