OUR RATING SYSTEM

DESIGN – the item works in the manner for which is it designed and works well on a bicycle: if it’s a rain jacket it has to keep the rain out, if it’s a hat it has to stay on while you ride, if it’s a bag it has to keep your items private, dry and secure. Basically it should work like a bicycle dream!

FUTURE PROOF – the item is made from raw materials that were extracted and manufactured in a sustainable, eco-friendly and socially responsible manner, and the designer takes back the item and recycles it. This is a world worth bicycling in!
