An Indiegogo campaign has just been launched by a company looking to transform the way cyclists ride in the rain.
The Leafxpro is basically a large, lightweight and easy to mount front fair that runs from the top of the front fork and extends out and up above the rider’s head and attaches via a clipping system to a small rain shield at the back of the seat.
According to the company, the product was researched, designed and tested over the past two years. Key seems to be its ease of use and quick assembly. For additional protection two side panels can be attached through a series of zippers. And, there is also a protective system designed for the little cyclist in the family that will cover up a rear-mounted baby seat.
The Leafxpro attaches to any handlebar shape, the only requirement being a width between 48cm and 65 cm. It also has inside pockets for valuables and comes in a convenient carrying bag.
Although the campaign hasn’t bursted out of the Indiegogo gates just yet, there are still 16 days remaining. Leafxpro will ship to backers in October, 2016.
Leafxpro is founded by CEO Teresa C. Lima and engineer Manuel B. Miranda.
