Evoc Bike Cover



A neat, quick solution for bunging a bike in the car or hotel room but for transport there are cheaper options

At every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.

The Evoc Bike Cover offers a range of solutions for bike travel and storage. It's perfect for keeping hotel rooms clean right down to fitting into the back of your car or onto a train, and it's packable too, but I can't help thinking it's a little bit jack of all trades, master of none.

  • Pros: Plenty of packing options
  • Cons: Not the easiest to pack, not the most comfortable to carry

The Evoc's easiest and best attributes is its ability to take a complete bike, ideal for quickly storing a dirty bike in the home or keeping a hotel receptionist's nerves calm when you ask to take it to your room.

To do this, you literally drop the bike into the bag and do the zips up, job done. You get a padded shoulder strap to carry it as well.


The second option is to drop the front wheel out and turn the bar. This keeps the length shorter if you have a small car or limited storage space. The bag has internal sleeves for the wheels, plus a pocket for pedals, quick releases, thru-axles and so on.


For robustness, the Evoc comes with a small panel that can be stuck under the fork dropouts using Velcro, so when you lift it the small cross-sectional area of the dropouts don't poke though the bag.


The third option is to take both wheels out, drop the saddle and remove the handlebar from the stem. Both ends of the bag can then be folded in to reduce the overall size, and it makes for quite a compact package.


With the bag being really flexible, though, it can be a faff to fit as you try to hold it upright while trying to drop the bike in.


There is no padding at all in the bag, so apart from not being any use for airline trips, it isn't the most comfortable to carry about. There are no wheels to drag it along so it's always going to be resting against your body as you move it around, which with a bike frame digging into you, can become a little tedious.


My main issue with the Evoc, though, is its price. We've reviewed the B'Twin 1-Bike Transport Cover in the past and although it doesn't offer all of the options of the Evoc, it'll take a bike with the wheels out and packed away for just £49.99 (it's gone up a tenner since the review).

Another option is the Tifosi Lightweight Bike Bag for £45.99. Again, it's a bag that requires you to take the wheels off the bike, but it looks to be great value against the Evoc's £114.95.

Yes, the Evoc Bike Cover allows you to drag a complete bike into a hotel room or car, but so does its Bike Rug for nearly half the price.

On the whole, I can see the Evoc being a good storage solution but for travelling there are many others out there that'll do the same job for a lot less money.

The Evoc Bike Bag has plenty of versatility when it comes to storage, but for travel there are much cheaper options on the market like those I've mentioned in the review. It's not bad, so 6 overall seems right.

With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
