After gaining success in Europe, a stylish and practical answer to storing bicycles is launching in the US. Known as the BikeParka, the product combines an attractive design with the functionality of protecting the bike from the elements and keeping it snug, dry, clean and secure. This ‘must-have’ cover for cycle owners is now available at BikeParka.com (http://www.bikeparka.com).
An all-season cover that allows cyclists to keep their bicycle indoors or out - knowing it will be well-covered and hidden from view - the BikeParka is the brainchild of UK-based company, Fatsumo Ltd. It is produced in collaboration with a New Zealand company that has a long history in manufacturing tents and adventure equipment.
Designed to last and perform, the BikeParka is constructed from durable Polyester Ripstop fabric, stitched and finished to the highest standards. Polyester is the optimum choice of fabric: besides being light and breathable, it won’t stretch if pooled with water. PU coated to achieve weather-proofing, the fabric is fully seam-taped and has UV protection UPF50+ to help retain its bright color.
Keeping the bike smart as well as secure, the BikeParka available in four color options: Pavement (grey), Ciel (blue), Ink (black) and Rosa (pink).
The BikeParka also comes in two design options. The first design, Stash, is ideal for use at home, in the garden or with a balcony or railings. It keeps bikes tidy and protected from dust. The second option, Urban, is designed for daily or frequent use and commuting. It features Velcro lock-through panels on each side: a standard lock can be pushed through a slot in the cover.
With both designs measuring 80" x 50" (205cm x 125cm), the one-size BikeParka fits all standard cycles, thanks to its toggle-fit capabilities. Each BikeParka has an elasticated bottom to achieve a close fit around the wheels and includes eyelets that can accommodate ties or small locks. The BikeParka adjusts to each bike and allows for different-sized frames, handle bars and seat heights. It will also cover additional baskets and carriers if they don't exceed the handlebar width or bike length.
Both the Stash and Urban BikeParkas each come in their own 'Stuff Sac': in the case of the Urban model, this can attach to the bike frame. The Stuff Sac measures just 8" x 3" (20cm x 12cm) and is durable and ultra-lightweight, weighing just 400g.
Greg Bourne of Fatsumo Ltd comments: “With the BikeParka, we have focused on what the bicycle owner really wants. Namely, a high-quality cover - well designed with hard-wearing and attractive textiles. We’re committed to innovation, with frequent product upgrades and a rolling calendar of seasonal colour options throughout the year.”
