For many, inclement weather is the biggest deterrent to consistent bike commuting. Good thing Veltop has you covered. Literally.
Editor's Note: May is National Bike Month! To celebrate, we're featuring a weekly post about the crispest, greenest bikes and bike accessories on the market. If you've got suggestions about what we should feature, tell us here.
Imagine this: you get up on Bike to Work Day, jazzed to swap the morning traffic for a breezy bike ride. Then you look out the window, and notice that it's pouring down rain. Do you a) grab a raincoat and say weather be damned or b) grab your car keys and say you'll try biking another day?
For most, it's the latter.
To protect brave bikers against rain, cold, and sun, Veltop has created a portable canopy that enables bikers to cycle while completely sheltered. The canopy is composed of a windscreen and a canopy supported by arches plus two side protections, and is adaptable to all bikes and almost on all trikes.
Our favorite is the Veltop Classic (pictured above): It's directly fixed on the handlebar and the saddle shaft and can be installed on every classic and electric bicycle. See it in action below.
