As a UK based SME, the company has developed a novel bicycle cover with many unique features and user benefits. The cover can be opened and deployed over the bicycle extremely quickly and can be removed and folded quickly to be stored compactly, before using again.
The product has been designed to be manufactured in biofibre or recycled fabric materials in order to minimise any negative environmental impact, consistent with the positive advantages of cycling as a low carbon and sustainable mode of transport.
The primary differentiator of the cycle cover range is to support user friendliness, as well as being rapid to deploy and remove, along with being compact for storage. In order to support the environmental and reduced carbon emission advantages of cycling in terms of a sustainable transport mode, another unique feature will be that they will be manufactured from sustainable or recycled materials. As such, the covers support a variety of use cases to further support increased cycling and reduce barriers to cycling.
The UK company is looking to enter into a manufacturing contract with a European manufacturer already proven in the textile product manufacture, ideally with experience of manufacturing products with biofibre and / or recycled fabrics. This is a relatively low volume product for such an industry and quality of manufacture will be very important.
