Kaps - Le vélo par tous les temps

Histoire-1427075791

It all starts in Beijing, 2 years ago, on a stormy night. Totally soaked despite my raincoat, I decided to use some DIY ideas.

Prototypes-1427080543

About 20 prototypes later, thermoformed and hand-sewn on an igloo tent structure, here's a lightweight and convenient bicycle protection, even for electric bikes.

Prototype n°5

Concept-1427078657

The idea is simple: to unfold, from a small bag, and install quickly, like a camping tent, a protective bubble above any bike.

Sac-1427085549

The bag - 38 x 10 cm - 1,5 kg

Avantages-1427082652

In addition to protection against rain, sun and wind, Kaps guarantees:

 

  Optimum visibility to almost 360 degrees

♦  Reflective strips for better night lights

  A modular structure according to your needs, the front windshield can fall back on the roof when the rain stops

  A broad protection that includes the front basket and rear passenger

  Identical flexible arches with your igloo tent. You will use them during your cycling, then on the tent at night. Save space and significant weight over long distances!

  A back pocket to slip your umbrella or some stuff

  An original advertising space on the back of your Kaps if you want to communicate

  Above all, an ecological act that encourages everyone to leave his car in the garage

 

THEN GET OUT YOUR BIKE, IT RAIN !

Soiree_a_pekin-1427595283

For the happy travelers passing through or living in China, a convivial evening will be held in Beijing in a place to be defined depending on the success of the gathering. So around June, beginning of the rainy season, I invite you to get the Kaps you ordered. Feel free to come by bike, for free installation!

Allocation of funds

I run a small-scale production, made in China, but certainly by 100% French hands. I live there since almost eight years now, and the relatively low cost of raw materials allows me to offer you the cheapest rain-Kaps of the market!

Fait_main-1427608606

Your participation will be mainly used for the purchase of fabrics, transparent plastics, flexible arches and frames ... and I take care of the rest if orders remain below 100 Kaps. Yes, I do everything by myself! I went part time just for this project, because it is my pleasure to design and achieve things by hand.
