Freeride backpacks with an integrated back protector provide extra safety when heading into the backcountry. And with the FR SKID EVOC introduces the first protector backpack for smaller athletes.
Just like a separate back protector a protector backpack only offers optimum protection if it is perfectly fitted to the body. But up until now small freeriders with a body height of 1.40 to 1.55 meters had problems finding a functional freeride backpack with an integrated back protector. With the FR SKID, a small daypack for shorter backs, EVOC extended their innovative protector backpack line.
Back protector with adaptive PU foam
The core of all EVOC protector backpacks is the 145 gram, CE-certified Liteshield back protector. The breathable protector consists of a segmented EPS core, adaptive PU foam and multiple dampening layers. Due to its great flexibility it adapts perfectly to individual back shapes and absorbs up to 95% of the impact of crashes. The material is temperature insensitive and guarantees reliable protection from plus 30 to minus 20 degrees.
Highest safety standards
The entire backpack system complies with the highest safety standards and is certified by the TÜV/GS. All materials and protection features have been tried and tested and certified by the TÜV SÜD according to the EU standard 89/686/EWG for personal safety gear, category 2 (PSA).
For excellent comfort the backpack features an ergonomic, extra-wide waist belt that spreads the weight of the backpack and takes advantage of the body’s center of gravity, guaranteeing maximum safety and great freedom of movement. The slim, ergonomically cut shoulder straps and the chest belt keep the backpack in a comfortable position and close to the body – essential for any good protector.
The small, compact protector backpack also convinced the jury of the ISPO AWARDS 2015 to give the EVOC FR SKID a ISPO Gold Award in the “ski” segment, in the category of “backpacks & bags”.
