About

As a cyclist, the Vital Case is a product I’ve always needed. Road, CX, and Mountain Bike riding, I found myself switching between tools for each specific bike. There was not a clean or efficient system for holding all of the loose parts. Similarly, I also wanted a case that would fit in my jersey pocket, attach to my bike, or be put in a pack. The summation of these problems and desires was the birth of this case. 

A Vital Case that looks as good under your saddle as it does in your jersey pocket - or even on the table of the mid-ride coffee shop. Weather resistant Phone and Billfold stretch-holder, wrapped in a high-quality leather outer and held together with a unique, unobtrusive saddle rail hanging system. 

Keep it thin, load it up, use the pieces separate or keep it all together and attach it to your bike.

Clips are made of spring stainless steel to ensure a solid closure that won't slip.

Note: Saddle attachment is strong enough for mountain biking but designed and recommended for road and gravel riding. 

Development:

The Vital Case has been in development and testing for more than a year. Numerous prototypes and iterations have been created to ensure that product quality and manufacturing are tried and true. 

What's Included:

Case includes removable pouch, 5 & 4mm allen, T25 and flat head screwdriver. Most adjustments made to a bike while riding involve these tools. If more tools are needed – the removable pouch will easily fit more.

What it Holds:

If you listen to tunes while your ride, you can slip the Vital Case into your jersey pocket and plug in your headphones through the zipper access.

Cell phone & cash pocket is water resistant to protect them from the elements.

Snēk Lifeboat Tire Lever:

During the creation of the case – I had the idea of an all in one tire lever. Change your tire, remove your valve core and open your bottle all with one tool. Metal interior and plastic outer ensure for a long lasting lever that won't damage your rim.

Risks and challenges

I hope you find these products as the great cycling solutions, that I’ve found them to be for myself, and numerous of other product testers.

The manufacturing process is tried, true, and tested. I’ve worked to not only ensure the products and process are sustainable, but that the relationship is solid and sustainable as well. As a promoter of my Kickstarter project – you’ll be just as up to date as I am in the process. Hurdles will be made clear, defined – and will be overcome.
