FIDLOCK goes Eurobike 2019

FIDLOCK goes Eurobike 2019

Annually, you can explore diverse products and innovations for the biking industry at the globally leading bike fair Eurobike, located in Friedrichshafen. The FIDLOCK portfolio already covers many attaching solutions or fasteners with easy, single-handed operation which are ideally suited for bikes and biking equipment. Our developers constantly improve our current portfolio and design new magnetic-mechanical fastening solutions for your products and customers worldwide. The FIDLOCK team will be welcoming you in Hall A4, Stand 207 at the Eurobike 2019, ready for questions or individual requests. On-site, we will reveal a couple of surprises, including one with a very special impact on FIDLOCK. Additionally, our very own in-house FIDLOCK Bike team will proudly present upcoming systems for the modern cyclist!

Novelties for the biker’s haven at Lake Constance

There is no doubt that the Eurobike is the number one trade show for the bike business worldwide. With more than 1.400 exhibitors, showcasing their innovations in front of the approx. 60.000 visitors, the Eurobike is the ideal place to get an extensive overview of the cycling industry and upcoming trends. Therefore, there is no better place to introduce the new and consumer-ready FIDLOCK Bike products:

We are proud to present the new TWIST bottle 590 that comes with an improved attaching system and is still compatible with previous TWIST models. Due to the reinforced connection between bottle and connector, the bottle can do nicely without the gravity kit and therefore profits additionally from the aerodynamic design. The specially developed bottle cap with a high flow valve is self-sealing, leak-proof and features a removable, protective cap against dirt and mud, e.g. for downhill fans.
Of course, these features aren’t reserved entirely for the new bottle: Our team combined the new design and the benefits of the TWIST bottle 590 with the smaller, space-saving bottle and created the TWIST bottle 450 with 450 ml liquid capacity. Quick access, without the use of a bottle cage, is now possible even on the smallest of bike frames. Or for the smallest of hands with the TWIST bottle 450 kids, distinguishable by a colourful bottle cap and special kids design, for the youngest cycling fans. Therefore, the TWIST bottle 590 is an option to satisfy the greater thirst. The new TWIST bottle 450 and 590 will be ready for sale before the end of 2019!

When you are travelling by bike, small inconveniences like a flat tire can become time-consuming scenarios if the right equipment isn’t at hand. Without further ado, FIDLOCK Bike decided to introduce the new TWIST toolbox, based on the TWIST technology. If you already have a TWIST base, the modular system allows you to simply continue using it – why change a reliable concept? In addition to tools and essentials, the square design allows even a smartphone to be stored safely. Organizer pockets on the inside and the TWIST system on the outside make the FIDLOCK Bike toolbox time-saving insurance against stranding with a flat tire! A prototype will be introduced at the Eurobike and the final TWIST toolbox will be ready for sale next year.

A magnetized cycling experience with FIDLOCK

Our other buckles and fasteners open up an even greater range of application areas on bikes and gear, with the most prominent example being our SNAP helmet buckle: Pinch free and single-handed operation even with gloves. Other models provide ideal application possibilities for bicycle bags or even clothes. Next to fastening components and consumer-ready products, FIDLOCK additionally partners with several well-known international companies for individual customer projects. For example, we are proud to be partners with MonkeyLink, a ZEG brand, well known for their electrically connective add-on parts for bicycles and e-bikes. Additionally, we are proud to announce that in the upcoming season the bicycles of many renowned brands like Herkules, Pegasus, Kettler, Flyer and Bulls will be equipped with a TWIST bike base ex works. This makes the TWIST system even more attractive for end-consumers and bike-shops, considering that ABUS is presenting a brand-new holder for the BORDO bike lock at the Eurobike 2019. This holder is based on a new FIDLOCK technology which is compatible with the TWIST systems and specially engineered for higher loads.

That bikes and magnets are an ideal fit can’t be denied. The intuitive handling and the one-hand operation are unique traits of the tried-and-tested FIDLOCK concept. Sparing you from fiddling with a bottle cage is lending safety an additional hand.
