If you're the type of rider who actually thinks about the potential of back injuries if you happen to crash, then you know the importance of protection. The Evoc FR Enduro Team Protector Hydration Pack features a certified back plate integrated into its hydration pack.
The Evoc pack was constructed from panels of 210 denier ripstop, PU-coated, Nylon. It features a main compartment ideal for carrying elbow and knee protectors when you don't need them, and a swing-open tool pocket for easy, on-the-trail access. Two Lycra side pockets hold food or other necessities that may also require quick access. The volume of the Enduro Team is just shy of 1,000 cubic inches, which makes it smaller than the Trail version, but the ideal size for a shorter ride or race. External straps stow your jacket and even your full-face helmet for that long slog uphill. The bladder pocket accommodates hydration systems of up to 3 liters ensuring you'll always have enough water for a long ride.
Inside of this simple hydration pack is a CE-certified Liteshield back protector. This lightweight spine protector (145 grams) conforms to the shape of your back using layers of PU foam and an EPS core. These layers reduce shock to the spine by up to 95% with impact. And, they are replaceable. To hold the back plate securely against your body and to achieve optimal fit, the Evoc pack secures with adjustable and nylon shoulder straps, a sternum strap, and a padded hip belt.
The Evoc Enduro Team Protector Hydration Pack is available in sizes Small/medium, Large, and X-Large and should be chosen based on your height and torso length. It comes in two colors: Green/lime and Blue/white.
