Christmas is coming up and like every year the mad present panic begins. So what is your wish to Santa? EVOC’s new MacAskill street line makes it easy for people to travel the world, but there are many more ideas for keen bikers on Danny MacAskill’s new website: http://dannymacaskill.co.uk

A three-piece travel set with a single look and feel: Danny’s new EVOC signature series is matched to the smallest detail. Together with the designers of the Munich-based company, the Scottish street trials rider has developed a luggage series, which is simply “spot on”. A bike travel bag, trolley suitcase and street backpack are all tailored to the needs of bike fans. For an athlete like Danny who is a frequent traveler, it was important to make the bags functional and simple. “I am quite disorganized when I travel, so I needed something that will help me at least try and stay neat and tidy while I’m away from home” – said Danny when asked about his new signature series collaboration with EVOC. “My bike, laptop, helmet and GoPro never leave my side when I travel, so it was important for me that my luggage set up has easy access but also keeps them safe from knocks and scratches.” The grey material sets the tone for all three products and is a theme linking back to Danny’s Scottish heritage and traditional tweed materials. “The cooperation with EVOC was great.” – said Danny. “They supported my ideas and in the end three products came out just how I wanted them to be. I am particularly happy with the backpack which is comfortable, functional, lightweight and looks pretty fresh.”

The largest item and for Danny the most precious is the BIKE TRAVEL BAG MacAskill – the new casual-looking bike bag can be used for air, car or train travel. Any bike can be quickly and securely packed with minimum disassembly. Less time building the bike and more time riding it! The two separate side wheel compartments and the weight of the frame are deliberately situated towards the rear section of the bag to ensure the center of gravity is distributed onto the stable undercarriage. The silent, smooth-running wheels take care of the rest.

His luggage goes into the durable, yet lightweight ROVER TROLLEY MacAskill suitcase. The trolley bag offers 80L of space, more than enough to pack everything you might need for a wild adventure. Weighing in at only 3600 g (7.94 lb) you can maximize that increasing smaller weight allowance on flights. No need to worry about dragging it around behind you either – the large wheels with solid bearings and mounts mean it is durable and easy to pull even on the toughest of street conditions. Just in case you come across any stairs, the removable and adjustable carrying straps will help make the climb easier. Designing the trolley bag – it quickly became clear that Danny has really experienced it all when travelling.

The last piece of the puzzle might be the smallest but is a must have – the STREET MacAskill, a casual city backpack. During the development process, Danny paid particular attention to this item. He was primarily thinking of students and wanted to create a backpack that you would always want to have with you when on the move. The 25L backpack is divided into several compartments and helps you maintain order, even in the greatest of chaos. A padded notebook compartment with quick side access means that any genius or crazy ideas can be quickly written down. “My ideas come to me in the strangest of times – very often when I am travelling and I see something random which inspires me. I am constantly making notes.” The secure compartment will keep valuable items nice and snug. Losing all your priceless photos and videos is painful – so the GoPro compartment comes with a special slot for the SD card. It will help keep your memories nice and safe! Last but far from least is the helmet holder. Easy removed or hidden away for the elegant look, this is ideal for any street rider.
