About this project
We are asking the Kickstarter community to help us develop LEAFXPRO and make it a great product, contributing positively to the life of everyday cyclists.
Riding in the rain is part of life on two wheels, let's make it fun and safe!
AS FEATURED ON
The LEAFXPRO Team
Here at LEAFXPRO, our main concerns are the environment and sustainability of our planet! We're commited to support and improve greener modes of transport. LEAFXPRO envisions a brighter future.
We enlisted the help of the Kickstarter community in order to get this product industrialised, making it available to every cyclist. Regardless of the weather, you should enjoy riding in the rain without getting wet!
You will enjoy it!
The Mission of the LEAFXPRO Team
Our mission in this project is to develop technology for the sake of Nature and Humanity, to this end, an innovative system was created, highly flexible, resistant, aerodynamic, adaptable to different models of bicycles, which lets you use the bike in the most difficult weather conditions.
Due to it's aerodynamics, using the LEAFXPRO makes the bicycle more predictable and comfortable under rain and when affected by winds.
How LEAFXPRO came to be? Where the idea came from?
The idea of Leafxpro arose because we love cycling and it's disappointing to have to use polluting means of transport because of the bad weather!
We started thinking... there had to be an efficient, versatile and comfortable solution, that would provide a sense of freedom for all people who love cycling.
During the last years we researched, designed and tested the perfect moulds, the right materials to the final result, we are very pleased to present the LEAFXPRO! * Patent pending
LEAFXPRO is just perfect for rainy days!
The world is colourful! Leafxpro inspires colour
If the day is gray and the sky is painted in black don’t be afraid! Take your bike and the opportunity to show the world that sustainability can be coloured.
The kits feature a range of colours that can be your favourite colour, the colour that will brighten your days.
LEAFXPRO Kit is modular and adaptable, providing different levels of protections for different weather conditions. The 'Classic' kit is the base of all other available kits, easily upgradable to the 'Advanced', 'Storm' or 'Family' kits.
The engineers who are part of the Leafxpro’s development team draw inspiration from nature to create a protective film (leaf) that is light, functional, easy to use, secure, but above all highly resistant to its own natural elements such as wind.
The aerodynamic was a critical point in the development process of the structures of Leafxpro, this is a fundamental point that a cyclist can easily overcome the resistance of air, even when the headwinds are the greatest enemies!
The Leafxpro kits adapt to all different types of bicycles. Tested in different models of bicycles with an optimal response of the structure, and people who have experienced loved it! It's fantastic to see how it adapts to different models. Its adaptability to different models of bicycles and people, gives it tremendous versatility.
Easy to use Assembly / Disassembly
The LEAFXPRO kits are easy to use with no tools required to assemble or disassemble. It is a simple and fast process (about 1 minute) in 5 simple steps.
1. Put the rods in protective film
2. Place the extender on the bike
3. Fasten the structure to the bike
4. Fix the lower and upper end to the bicycle frame
5. Tension the structure
The Leafxpro kit is easy to transport, it is compact, it accommodates quite easily in the carry bag and can be carried on the bike or on the back of the cyclist in a simple and quick way!
Weight: 2 to
3lbs. depending on model
Dimensions: length +/- 20, diameter +/- 4in
People who drive a bicycle face many dangers. Leafxpro structure was developed to give total freedom of movements to the cyclist, and not trapped inside it.
While using the Leafxpro, the cyclist has both arms free for signalling maneuverers, or protection when off balance.
The Leafxpro structure in both 'Storm' and 'Family' Kits have side protections that react accordingly to the cyclist movements, open and closing automatically, providing simultaneous protection and safety.
What we will do next:
We will continue to work for the Leafxpro gets better and better. With your help we will make a more sustainable world.
Why do we need Kickstarter?
We need your feedback to improve our structure to be used by everyone who likes bicycles. Our next step goes through a pre-industrial prototype.
We need your support. We hope you are inspired to use the Leafxpro!
We believe in our project, we believe it is the best solution for bad weather days and with the family kit, we can take our children to school every day by bicycle in a safe and comfortable manner.
Thank you for your help!
Where does the money go?
We can not move into the next phase alone. The process of industrial production is expensive and so we need your help to make this dream come true.
This belief... thousands of hours of hard work and put our money as seed, hoping to make world greener.
This is our contribution to a more sustainable planet.
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges:
We have the experience and expertise of the engineers who are part of our team and together with the designers we will give our best in this project for they are sure of the quality of our product and you can get as soon as possible to your home.
We have worked hard to launch the Leafxpro on the Kickstarter plaform and of course we look forward to seeing people using the leafxpro everywhere, it's just our dream. Trust us and the commitments of the Leafxpro team!
The industrialization process of a product has always risks associated with both the level of funding as well as technical solutions, but the team that makes up the leafxpro always looking to see solutions and not problems in realizing the vision you have for the world.
We have passed the stage of various prototypes and we are ready to move forward to the next stage.
We will deliver our Leafxpro kit at the due date and we will keep you updated with all the details.
See you soon!
