BikerTop, la prima copertura mobile per biciclette
â€œWith BikerTopÂ® we aim to increase the use of bicycles even more throughout the whole year and in all weather conditions.â€ - Diego Divenuto, Inventor of BikerTopÂ®
How does it work?
BikerTopÂ® is made up of a cover stored in a bag/top case positioned on the bicycle, in front of the handlebars. The cover opens above the bicycle in just a few seconds, providing a shelter from the rain during journeys.
This is a technical solution that we have recently patented in Italy and in the next months, once the verification procedures have been completed, we will then extend the patent internationally.
BikerTopÂ® is the only cover system that allows instant opening and closing almost like an umbrella for your bike.
The BikerTopÂ® benefits:
1. Simple to use: Designed to be easily used by anyone
2. Quick Protection: Opens and closes within 10 to 15 seconds
3. Safe and Sturd: Protects cyclist from the rain and guarantees stability on the road
4. Aesthetically beautiful: Enhances a fashionable look to your bicycle or e-bike
So far we have already built some initial prototypes using rapid prototyping with 3D printing technology. We are currently testing BikerTopÂ® with potential customers and with laboratory tests (e.g. TÃœV SÃœD) to certify and approve the final product.
BikerTopÂ® began to attract attention in 2017 by being among the finalists of the â€œStart Up Euregioâ€ award in Innsbruck, Austria. It then won the â€œSeed Moneyâ€ call from the Autonomous Province of Trento, and obtained a first funding.
In October 2018 it was selected to participate as a start-up to the first edition of the â€™Festival dello Sportâ€™, organized in Trento in collaboration with the newspaper â€˜La Gazzetta dello Sportâ€™.
The product development is currently taking place in Italy, within the incubator â€˜Progetto Manifatturaâ€™ of Trentino Sviluppo.
The launch of BikerTopÂ® is scheduled in 2019 at the Eurobike fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany (September 4-7, 2019), and via Indiegogo (Crowdfunding platform).
