Fidlock motorcycle helmet buckle with TÜV certification

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. Absolutely no compromises can be made when it comes to helmet safety, which is why the new HOOK 25 alu motorbike motorcycle helmet buckle from Fidlock underwent the TÜV safety test in compliance with the ECE-R22 motorcycle helmet standard and passed with flying colors.

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.

Getting out and about with children, actively and safely

Getting out and about with children, actively and safely

When they have children, sporty couples in particular may wonder how it is possible to stay active without it having a negative impact on their offspring.

People who enjoy cycling, hiking or regular jogging are therefore prepared to invest in convenient and safe equipment for their next outdoor adventure with their baby or child. For many families, being active with their child is extremely important. Hiking with children is particularly popular, as both the little ones and their parents enjoy the movement in the fresh air and the experience of being in the mountains. However, cycle trips also give children in bike trailers great pleasure before they later climb onto a bike themselves.

Secure buckles for baby equipment and innovative baby items

Secure buckles for baby equipment and innovative baby items

New parents face a huge number of challenges, from responsibilities relating to their child right through to everyday tasks where they normally use both hands – which now have to be managed with a child in tow. It often takes a while before everything can run smoothly. In these situations, all parents tend to wish at one point or another that they had a third hand. A great deal of things would be so much easier to accomplish, especially with small children around – one hand for the child, the other two for everything else.

As the dream of a third hand is out of reach, and it is not possible to manage everything with just one hand, parents need solutions such as buckles that can be operated with one hand to tackle this problem. Helpful baby equipment is therefore necessary that can make everyday tasks easier for adults – whether it’s strapping children into the car seat, putting on the baby carrier, or opening the diaper bag.
