Totally soaked despite my raincoat, I decided to use some DIY ideas.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Bon-1427074393" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176817/bon-1427074393.jpg"></p> <p> <img alt="Prototypes-1427080543" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176826/prototypes-1427080543.gif"></p> <p> 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.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Prototype2-1427080656" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176827/prototype2-1427080656.jpg"></p> <p> <em>Prototype n°5</em></p> <p> <img alt="Concept-1427078657" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176825/concept-1427078657.gif"></p> <p> The idea is simple: to unfold, from a small bag, and install quickly, like a camping tent, a protective bubble above any bike.</p> <p> <img alt="Sac-1427085549" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176830/sac-1427085549.jpg"></p> <p> <em>The bag - 38 x 10 cm - 1,5 kg</em></p> <p> <img alt="Avantages-1427082652" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/176829/avantages-1427082652.gif"></p> <p> <strong>In addition to protection against rain, sun and wind, <em>Kaps</em> guarantees:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  Optimum visibility to almost <strong>360 degrees</strong></p> <p> <strong>♦ </strong> <strong>Reflective strips</strong> for better night lights</p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  A <strong>modular structure</strong> according to your needs, the front windshield can fall back on the roof when the rain stops</p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  A broad protection that includes the <strong>front basket and rear passenger</strong></p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  Identical flexible arches with your <strong>igloo</strong> tent. You will use them during your cycling, then on the tent at night. Save space and significant weight over long distances!</p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  A <strong>back pocket</strong> to slip your umbrella or some stuff</p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  An <strong>original advertising space</strong> on the back of your <em>Kaps</em> if you want to communicate</p> <p> <strong>♦</strong>  Above all, an ecological act that encourages everyone to leave his car in the garage</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>THEN GET OUT YOUR BIKE, IT RAIN !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> More information <a href="http://www.kapeisi.com" target="_blank">Kapeisi.com</a></p> <p> <img alt="Calendrier-1427389367" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/178514/calendrier-1427389367.gif"></p> <p> <img alt="Planning-1427561858" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/179339/planning-1427561858.gif"></p> <p> <img alt="Soiree_a_pekin-1427595283" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/179469/soiree_a_Pekin-1427595283.gif"></p> <p> 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 <em>Kaps</em> you ordered. Feel free to come by bike, for free installation!</p>

Allocation of funds

<p> I run a small-scale production, <em>made in China</em>, 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-<em>Kaps</em> of the market!</p> <p> <img alt="Fait_main-1427608606" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/179474/fait_main-1427608606.jpg"></p> <p> 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 <em>Kaps</em>. 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.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Frais_kaps-1427684015" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/179814/frais_Kaps-1427684015.gif"></p> <p> If you like the project and it succeed, I will propose some special improvements.</p>
