Hot on the heels of its recently confirmed partnership with elite cyclist Ed Clancy – accessories and bags specialist KitBrix has launched its new CityBrix v2 on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. At the time of writing, and with the campaign only running for a couple of days, KitBrix has received £15,423 in pledges, exceeding its £10,000 goal. There are currently 111 backers for the CityBrix v2, with 22 days still left to go on the Kickstarter campaign.
Tested with elite athletes and inspired by military grade materials, the CityBrix backpack is designed with the active urbanite in mind. It has two key storage compartments ‘work and play’ for kit – plus space for accessories, laptop, tablet, phone, passport and keys.
“Wow, it has been a great project to be part of so far,” said KitBrix founder Robert Aldous. “The page for our Kickstarter campaign is still live; and I would love your support in getting the word out if you are able to in some way across social, in private or shouting from the roof tops!
“Thank you to everyone for their help in the build-up to this project. It has been a big commitment for us across a number of areas and thank you to all that have taken part. Especially our version 1 customers that supported the concept from the start. I hope our reward for the v1 product return will go some way to thank them specifically.”
KitBrix supplies kit to pro cycling teams, including Team JLT Condor, Team Raleigh and Neon Velo. The company is also a trusted supplier to British Triathlon, supporting GB athletes with luggage and transition solutions to 2020 and beyond.
Entering the marketplace in 2014, and a BikeBiz 2017 award winner (Best Product Innovation by a Newcomer), KitBrix, has developed a unique offering to support athletes in their training regime and on race day. From its origins within the triathlon category, the modular concept of the bags is now becoming widely used by teams across a variety of sports to support their complex logistical needs – with an emphasis on saving athletes time, energy and stress in order to focus this energy on competition and race day.
Much of the KitBrix inspiration is taken from military kit design principles – hard wearing, practical and built to last. As the company adds… ‘Spend less time searching for kit & equipment and more time doing the sport you love. No fuss, just organised kit #keepittogether.’
