About

An increasing number of people are keeping their bikes in their living quarters. But what happens when you bring your bike indoors after a ride? Dirt from the tires messes up the floor, the wheels scuff the walls, the kids can't keep their hands off of it, and it just looks bad. We've come up with a way to solve these problems. 

Velosock - the World's First Indoor Bike Cover.

LESS CLEANING UP AT HOME
The dirt and debris that sticks to your bicycle collects at the bottom of the tight-fitting cover – your floors and walls stay nice and clean.

A SAFER ENVIRONMENT FOR LITTLE ONES
The Velosock protects little ones from the bicycle's sharp parts and pedals by prohibiting their access.

IT LOOKS GOOD
By covering almost all of the bike frame, the Velosock becomes a part of your home's interior design. Choose one of our designs, or come up with your own – a phrase or motto to inspire you, or in colors to match your home. The choice is yours.

WHEN TRANSPORTING BIKE BY CAR
Keep your car clean with the Velosock when transporting your bike in the trunk.

WHEN USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
In many countries a bicycle may only be carried on public transportation if it is covered up. Put a Velosock on when getting on the train, subway, plane or bus.

So elegant and vibrant, that you can`t take your eyes off of it! Unexpectedly, the cover smoothly transforms the overall entire design of a room and becomes an integral part of it.

Fits all adult bicycles with length 62.99’’-78.74’’ / 1,6-2 m Weight: 1.1 lbs / 500 g

 Thanks to the stretchy material and its shape, the Velosock can be pulled over your bike in under 15 seconds – lift the front wheel, place it in the Velosock, and then pull the cover over the rest of the bike. We recommend you put your bike in the Velosock before you carry it into your home.

EASY TO CLEAN
Once the Velosock is on your bike, all of the dirt collects in the bottom of the sock, making it easy to dump it out into the trash.

MACHINE WASHABLE AND DRIES QUICKLY

  • Machine wash in warm water (up to 100º F). 
  • Dries quickly – simply hang up to dry (machine drying is not recommended); no need to iron. 
  • The Velosock material is specially designed to be dirt- and water-repellent, leading to less-frequent washing and faster drying.

COMES IN A REUSABLE GIFT BAG
Between rides, keep your Velosock in its handy bag.

  • Bag for adult bicycle cover 7.9x3.9x3.9” / 20x10x10 cm
  • Bag for children's bicycle cover 5.9x3.9x3.9” / 15x10x10 cm

We truly believe that good design brings joy to life. That's why we gave special thought to its visual image when creating the Velosock. Currently we have fourtheen different designs for adult bikes, and eight for kids' bikes; and we're working on more. But we also want people to be able to express themselves creatively, so we'd like to offer customers the opportunity to quickly and easily design their own fabric prints, directly through our website, for any of Velosock's products – either using their own photos or choosing one from a library.  

In selecting the material for the Velosock, the main features we needed were elasticity and denseness – a tight fit is necessary to keep the dirt inside the sock, but it has to be tough enough to withstand being pulled over the protruding parts of a bicycle. In addition, the material had to be breathable so that if you put it over a wet bike, the moisture would be absorbed and quickly dry out to prevent any rust damage.

After countless trials and experiments on various sizes and types of bicycles, we found the ideal material – a fabric that conformed to all of our demanding requirements and specifications, and allowed us to create a product that provides the highest levels of functionality and durability.

We didn't want to stop at just creating indoor bike storage covers, so we came up with a new product for travelers – Velosock Luggage Covers. Our covers will keep your luggage clean and safe during your journey, and will also make your bag easier to pick out from the others at baggage claim.

Velosock products are printed using the high quality dye-sublimation method. The ink permanently permeates the fabric fibers so that there's no chance of peeling, and the extremely brilliant colors will never fade – even with washing.

.

Everyone wants to give something special that will be used and remembered. Surprise your family and friends with an innovative and unique gift – a Velosock! For the most awesome gift ever, create a Velosock with a customized print of your own design – personalized gifts are the best gifts.

We love riding bicycles, and we love what we do. We truly believe that bicycling is the best way to get around in the city, and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. We're inspired by the thought that we can have a hand in creating something special that will help people in their everyday lives.

Risks and challenges

Designing and manufacturing a new products always involves risk. We've spent a good while refining the design of the VeloSock, as well as listening to the advice of our experts on how to minimize these risks.

If we find any opportunities for improvement, we will address them immediately by implementing all updated and improved solutions. We will let you know if any improvements and alterations are made. We are completely committed to ensuring that the VeloSock conforms to our own high expectations of functionality and craftsmanship.

We have already teamed up with a fulfillment company to ensure that you get your VeloSock on time.

We are pretty confident about our shipment times, plus or minus a few weeks. We have managed to weed out any unknowns to the best of our ability, but nevertheless, we care so deeply about our product and reputation that we will communicate with you throughout the process so that you know exactly when to expect your shipment.
