New Fidlock Technology

New Fidlock Technology

The designers and product developers at Fidlock are constantly working on new fasteners, buckles and new technolgies. Thanks to their tireless efforts, Fidlock has a huge selection of fasteners and technologies that customers can choose from. Sometimes the buckle or the technology is so specific it is made for one application, such as the Fidlock Helmet Buckles. Often times though the Fidlock technologies and fasteners can be used for a wide variety of applications.

This newest technology falls into the second category. The Fidlock Winch is not only a new fastener but also presents an brand new technology, this is the fastener we want to present to you today.

The Fidlock Winch combines the infamous magnetic-mechanical Fidlock concept with that of a ratchet. This unique combination allows the user to not only use the Fidlock Winch to open and close their applications but also to adjust them. Thanks to this combination the fields of application are endless ranging from shoes, to vests, to helmets, orthopaedic aids to even blinds.

As there are a sheer endless amount of application suggestions, we cannot possibly cover them all, which is why we would like to present a small selection to give you an idea of where we would envision this fastners use.

The motorcycle helmet is arguably the most important piece of protective equipment for bikers and everything must be 100 per cent in order: protection, visibility, weight, aerodynamics, handling and convenience.

magnetic closures for bags - Zirkeltraining

Zirkeltraining: Magnetic closures for bags made from leather taken from sports equipment and from gymnastics mats

Bags from Zirkeltraining are unique – each and every piece is a one-off with its own story to tell. Manufactured from recycled leather taken from sports equipment and gymnastics mats, and enriched with functional details such as the Fidlock magnetic closures for bags, the limited-edition bags and accessories have a stylish, retro-chic look, while at the same time making you break out in a sweat with memories of circuit training (known as Zirkeltraining in German) during school sports – from the box to the vaulting horse, bars, and mat. Since 2007, the Zirkeltraining brand has won many design awards and has succeeded in generating enthusiasm for its products among users who have high demands in terms of design and quality, rather than simply among sports fans. The idea for the innovative bags from Zirkeltraining developed spontaneously when the retailer Bernd Dörr discovered a pile of old gymnastics mats and some discarded gymnastics equipment in a backyard. These came from a company that repaired sports hall equipment and that had just moved into the premises. When asked, the company was happy to hand them over instead of throwing them out with the bulky waste collection. Inspired by the high-quality leather that showed completely individual signs of wear due to decades of use in gymnastics classes, the idea of making something from this equipment came into being.
