I used this for an international trip with my Otso Waheela C, size XL. Everything fit and I was able to stuff the bag full of bikepacking bags. TONS of room in this bag. I have a dropper post and had to lower the entire seatpost all the way to fit the saddle, and it barely fit. If I had a regular seatpost I would have just removed it. After 1 trip with 4 flights, I can see some wear on the exterior stitching of the bag. Nothing serious. I liked this bag a lot and will continue to use it for future trips. The wheels felt protected and I had a lot of confidence in the protection of everything. It is very well built. If I were flying with my bike weekly, I would probably get a hardshell case like the Velovault2. My friend had the same box and it was bombproof and fit large tires.
Used to transport, via airline cargo, an XL MTB bike with 27.5, 2.8 tires & dropper post seat. The soft sided case is much lighter than a hard sided case & allows much gear/pump/tools to be included with a total weight of 70#. Hard sided cases that fit this size bike will be over most airline weight limitations (even for oversized items). Internal anchorage, tool pockets & component packing is very good & easy to use. Some components still require removal & some additional zip tying/padding but very easy. Takes about a half hour to break down bike pack & get going.
My daughter uses the EVOC XL for cross-country (WA - VT) flights back and forth to school and home for her hardtail 29'er. The design is very well thought out and the bike is easily secured. After the first time it goes fast. Wheels fit in separate compartments so their not banging around. So much better then the old school bike bags from back in the day. The first few times there were long WhatsApp video-calls helping her put the bike back together after she arrived - but she has gotten the hang of it: reattach derailleur, reattach bars, install front and rear wheels, inflate tires and post - good to go. The XL allows the 29'er wheel to fit easily. My personal EVOC is the PRO model, not XL and its a squeeze getting the 29'er wheels in the wheel compartments. With mine, I have had a brake rotor bent once, so now I remove them. But I don't bother for my daughter's bike. Bag is expensive but worth it.
Bought this case because I was tired of paying rental fees on my mountain bike trips. Fits a 27.5 Full suspension mountain bike no problem. Its just under 50 pounds fully loaded. Gets you under the weight limit. Expensive, but with three trips its already paid for itself
My XL Bronson went into the case and it JUST fit- a little tighter than expected, but enough room for the bike and a significant amount of gear. Very well thought out in regards to wheels, bars, fork, drivetrain. Bike arrived in perfect condition. Benefit is that case folds on itself for reasonably compact storage.
