EVOC Bike Travel Bag Pro vs EVOC Bike Travel Bag

If you are anything like me, you want to make sure you are getting the best tool for the job and not spending your money on features you do not need. Which leads us to this post, EVOC bike travel bag, and Evoc Bike travel bag pro seem to be the way to travel with your bicycle.

I had difficulty finding the difference between the two of them, so as I did my research and continue to do so these are my notes.

General Differences

The Pro version is a little lighter but more importantly, it has an improved inside layout with better features for securing your bike.

Another notable difference is the disk brake rotor protection.  The original bag has some protection while the Pro version is much more substantial.

Bike Travel Bag (Original)

Here you can see how a mountain bike and road bike will fit into the original bag.

  • Has Disk Brake Rotor protection

Mountain Bike Packed

Here you can see mountain bike its rear wheel of the bike fit into the travel bag pro.  When compared to the original, there are more straps, padding, and protection to keep the bike safe and secure. Included with the pro version is the frame pad, which wraps around the top and bottom tubes.

When it comes to wheels, disc brake rotors and cassettes, there is more protection. There is a thicker guar protecting the rotor and two braces to help protect the entire wheel.

Road Bike Packed

As you know road bikes are much smaller than mountain bikes, so you will have more room for your bike or more room to pack a larger bike.

In addition to the frame pad EVOC provides a road bike adapter to help keep everything snug.  the road bike adapter fits around the front forks.

The same wheel protection will help protect your cassette or disc brakes if your road bike has them.

Colors

This one is pretty straightforward the Original bike travel bag is available in five colors and the pro model is just two.

While the bags are pretty much the same the dimensions are a little different and one size could be a bit better depending on your bike style and size.

  • Pro Bag wheels are smoother, quieter and better.

  • Pro Bag has a clip-on wheel.
  • Pro Bag comes with a road bike adapter

Wrap Up

I hope you have found this post helpful.

For me I think the Pro Bag is the way to go.  With that being said if I found a great deal on the original back I might purchase that one.

 

If you have any questions or additional information to add please let me know in the comments.  I will do my best to get the question answered or the post updated.
