SAN FRANCISCO, CA – To celebrate the official Bike to Work month in the United States, BikeWrappers has launched its latest cycling safety product, The Commuter Gaiter. The gaiter is a highly reflective ankle wrap that is visible to cars from every angle. In addition to the reflective nature, the gaiter was designed so that the cyclist will never have to roll their pant leg up ever again as the gaiter completely wraps around not just the cuff of the pant leg but also around the cyclist’s shoelaces to keep them out of the bike chain.
The gaiters features include:
• 77 in2 of reflective surface area on each gaiter visible from all angles for several hundred yards
• Prevents cyclists’ clothing and shoelaces from the moving parts of the bicycle
• Made from heavy duty Nylon Cordura to withstand the wear and tear of daily use in a tough environment
• Cross Velcro design easily assures a snug and secure fit with every use
“We’re committed to designing products that promote cycling safety in a simple and straight forward manner. Our commuter gaiters are a natural extension of our line of products as we re-think and improve the common ankle band for cyclists.” said Brent Thomas, founder and president of BikeWrappers. “We know we aren’t re-inventing the wheel here, we’re re-inventing the ankle band by putting our own spin on it… We’re improving visibility by increasing the reflective surface area of any existing product out there by six times AND redesigning the product to address the common issue of keeping clothing and shoelaces away from the chain and bike grease.”
To celebrate the launch of the new app, the Gaiters are now available on Kickstarter through June 4, 2015 here. The gaiters will be available at a deeply discounted price as an earlybird option of a single or a pair of the gaiters until these pledges are sold out. The gaiters will be available in three colors unless the campaign hits it’s stretch goal of $10k, then will be available in three additional colors. The pledge rewards also include options for the signature product of the company, BikeWrappers, as well as their popular ‘Periodic Table of Cycling’ T-Shirt. The top pledge even allows the backer the ability to become a model for their products on the front page of their website.
