WE NEED YOUR HELP to launch our new collection comprising 2 new beautifully bright hi-viz colours for the Urbanshell bag cover so that we can help cyclists stay visible, dry and HAPPY TO BE SEEN!

We want to create Urbanshell Bag Covers in Electric Pink and Lightning Blue colours to keep cyclists visible and dry out on the roads!

What's This Whole Urbanshell Thing About?

Earlier this year we created and successfully launched the Urbanshell orange bag cover. Following our launch we were asked for additional colour options.  We listened, went away and finally decided on two distinctive pantone colours to give you the look YOU want!

Our goal?  To hook you up with one of the best looking and most functional cycling bag covers out there!  We also want to offer it in the colour collections that YOU have been asking for!

One of the best things about the Urbanshell bag cover is that it is designed to fit into the commuters lifestyle.  We are confident the product will perform when in use: IT IS SUPER EASY TO SLIP ONTO YOUR BAG IN NO TIME! It has an elasticated edge so that it can fit snugly around your bag without flapping around.  

When you are not using it, you can simply fold it and store it away neatly and conveniently.  It also makes a great pouch for your keys, gloves, lights and any other little but important things!

Our bag cover will not just make you look good; it will also help you to stay visible and dry while out on the roads and fits within your urban lifestyle! Urbanshell bag covers also make the perfect gift. Great for any cyclist and sure to make them feel and look awesome.

These are some REAL candid camera snapshots from out and about.  Please excuse the quality as they were taken on a phone while moving!  And please remember to always zip the pocket closed! (p.s. please send us an Urbanshell photo of yours too - we want to include them here!)

The Urbanshell bag cover will work with bike panniers.  It's also great for runners, kids on their way to and from school, motorcyclists, Vespa riders, and anyone else with a backpack!  Whatever the occasion, Urbanshell has your back!

We appreciate you and your support for the brand and the product. To say thanks and show you what we are about, we are going to send you a bag cover and the opportunity to join the team on one of our fun rides (we will ensure that these are truly once in a lifetime experiences).

We are fundraising on Kickstarter because we believe that we can offer the community something truly awesome. Check out the REWARDS on offer!

Our brand is built on the foundation that “form meets function”.  It all started from a casual conversation on a drive home from a triathlon event.  One year later we are really excited to expand our range and give the community more choice.

Our original orange cover is currently sold at a number of cycling retailers in the UK.  We invite you to visit one of our brand partners to check out the orange bag cover if you are interested to know more. 

We have been working hard to get everything in place so that we can get these new colours manufactured.  During our journey over the past year we have learned how and where to focus our efforts during the process.  To give you an idea of how we will use the funds, please see our pledge breakdown.

Risks and challenges

We have learnt many lessons during our journey and will implement all the strategies we have learnt to run the production process as smoothly as possible. Our goal is to mitigate and manage any risks as best as humanly possible. We want you to love this product and we will do everything we can to make that happen!!!

We have carefully chosen the two new colour pantone options for this new batch. There are small risks that the pigment can change slightly during the production process however we do not expect this to happen and we remain very confident that the there will be no material difference as compared to our prototypes.

We believe the risks to late delivery are low, nevertheless we recognize that unforeseen issues are always possible. We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in large quantities. We promise to keep our backers posted every step throughout the production process. If you have any questions, do please get in touch: info@urbanshell.com
