EVOC announced a new airline-friendly bike bag, the Road Bike Bag Pro. With a hybrid hard/soft construction, it’s designed specifically to be fit-friendly, without having to adjust the saddle or cockpit of your road or triathlon bike. As a bonus, it even includes an integrated TSA-friendly lock.

The debate rages on about hard vs soft-shell bike travel cases… which is more durable? Easier to store? More cost-effective? EVOC answered with a new hybrid case, combining elements of both designs for a best-of-both-worlds. EVOC says that it’s “soft where possible and hard where necessary”, providing low weight, high stability, and easy handling.
The lid is made of pressure-resistant polycarbonate, mated to abrasion-resistant P600D PU sides reinforced by removable hard plastic rods. EVOC claims that pressure on the bag from the outside is diverted and never touches fragile parts.
The Road Bike Bag Pro includes a road bike stand with axle mounts, wheel bags, and clip-on front wheel.
The Road Bike Bag Pro is aimed at skinny tire bikes (duh), and promises to be fit-friendly, requiring no adjustments to the cockpit or saddle.
An integrated TSA-approved lock keeps the case safe, while allowing the TSA entry if necessary (Read: When they open your case, they can).
The Road Bike Bag Pro is made in black only, with an overall volume of 300 liters. It will be available in Fall 2019, for an MSRP of $930.
