What is Velojackr?

Mounted in a standard sized bicycle bottle cage, Velojackr is a patent-pending, unique tool bottle, cleverly engineered to transform into a repair stand to protect handlebars, shifters and handlebar-mounted tech from dirt and ground abrasion.

Velojackr comes complete with all the crucial equipment required to repair a puncture, whilst protecting your bike - saddle cover, tyre levers, puncture patches and task gloves - in addition to providing flexible storage for other essential items.

When a puncture has damaged your tyre, don’t let it damage your bike!

VELOJACKR IS A COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR PUNCTURE REPAIR AND BICYCLE MAINTENANCE WHEN ON THE ROAD

Why Use Velojackr?

Repairing a punctured tyre while on the road is a minefield of possible ways to damage your beloved steed:

Ouch!
Ouch!

• Flip it upside down and risk damage to your saddle, handlebars, high-mounted gear shifters and handlebar-mounted tech

Don't try this at home!

• Lay it on its side and risk damaging your paintwork and derailleurs

• Rest it upright on its forks and risk scraping and bashing them

Velojackr is a unique bicycle-mounted tool bottle with integrated repair stand to rest your handlebars on when you flip your bike. It gives 70mm ground clearance which means you don’t have to worry about your bar-mounted tech or gear shifters taking the weight of your bike.

Velojackr includes:

• a water-resistant saddle cover so that your saddle never comes into contact with the rough, wet or muddy ground

• three great quality tyre levers to prise off the most stubborn tyre

• puncture repair patches, for when you want to repair your inner tube on the road, and

• high-quality task gloves so you don’t get your hands covered in dirt or oil.

Who Are We?

We are Justine and Graham Nicholson. Our company is ELKAH Ltd and we create amazing cycling accessories.

As a married couple, ELKAH Ltd truly is a family business – ELKAH is an acronym of each of our children’s first initials in the order in which they were born! Yes, that means we have five children!

We’ve always loved to cycle. Graham commutes to the office on his bike, we get out on our bikes together as much as we can and we cycle as a family – on the road, on cycle tracks, off-road.

Justine Nicholson is Managing Director and has 15 years experience in Project Management, specialising in Risk Management, working for a large multi-national organisation. She also has experience in new product development and testing.

Graham Nicholson is Operations Director and has over 20 years experience in Engineering and Manufacturing environments, from start-ups to billion dollar companies. He has held responsibility for new product introduction, prototyping and introduction to mass manufacture.

It was during one of our rides together that we found the painpoint – the constant damage to our bikes and bike tech when repairing a puncture. We were fed up flipping our bikes and scratching our shifter hoods and saddles and removing our lights and computers before we could repair a puncture. We conducted some Market Research and found that many other cyclists feel the same.

We have developed four evolutions of Velojackr, from our original homemade prototype to our current professionally manufactured, 3D-printed model in its final design. We have improved upon each version in response to customer feedback, so we are confident that you'll love Velojackr as much as we do.

Risks and challenges

We have already mitigated areas of risk and challenge by completing final design of Velojackr and by carefully identifying high quality manufacturing partners who have experience in building this type of product and also have capacity to quickly ramp up production whilst retaining the highest quality product and accessories.

We hand-picked the best design team, with a proven track record in creating stylish, cool and functional products, to ensure that Velojackr performs to above and beyond its specification and to meet all relevant regulations.

Although there is a risk of project delay, we have meticulously planned and agreed with our suppliers to ensure any slippage is kept to a minimum.

New risks identified and our mitigation strategies will be fully communicated to all buyers throughout the process.
