I'm looking for a wheel bag for my set of disc road wheels. I'm thinking about the evoc bags but they do not have any protection for discs. https://www.evocsports.com/products/acc ... -2-pcs-set

Ideally I'm looking for mostly soft bags that have extra support and protection on one side for the discs. I don't really care if its one double bag or two single bags. Does anyone have any suggestions?

honestly you are way better off removing them for travel if you are worried about them getting tweaked untrue.

Ditto on previous comment. As an early adopter of disc brakes for CX racing, when traveling by air I packed the bikes in Evoc's soft sided bags, removed the rotors - centerlock makes it pretty simple. This allowed me to carry 4 wheels in the bike case and a couple more in wheel bags as carry-ons which fit in the overhead on most airliners but regional jets/turbo props are a non-starter. For the OP, sorry for the shameless plug, but if you don't find any better options and are in the US, I have two brand new Mavic red padded wheel bags that I no longer need (image below is not the actual bags).
