For more then 3000 years people protect themselves against rain with umbrellas. We adapt this principle to bikes and developed a new and patented device that provides an innovative way of rain protection for cyclists. In essence it is an elongated umbrella connected to the bike's frame. Instead of an over-head umbrella we included a recess for the cyclist's head and added a hood. The head above the umbrella ensures unobstructed vision.
Space between the umbrella and the body ensures freedom of movement and prevents excessive sweating, unlike standard rain wear.
It comes with a universal holder and a case for storage. The holder can be fixed on nearly every bike's frame. It is suitable as well for men's and as for women's bikes.
The closed umbrella can be stored compactly in the case, that can be fixed to the bike's frame with two Velcro straps. So the umbrella is always at hand.
We have manufacturers on board which we have been working with for over a year. We have working production samples. Now, all that we need is your help to get the UNDER-COVER on the production line. Our Kickstarter funding will be used for the manufacturing process. This will include:
Tooling - as this is a unique product every component has been specifically designed and will require special tooling to make them.
Manufacturing - setting up production line, quality control and testing of the product.
Logistics - To ensure the delivery is quick and efficient.
