About

We are Overade, a team of bike enthusiasts who makes urban commuting safe and easy. This is why we are introducing LOXI, the first foldable, secure and waterproof trunk bag that will revolutionize the way you ride.

LOXI is the perfect mix between a bike pannier and a lock. This clever combination of two useful bike accessories makes our bag unique.

You can carry your belongings while riding in a safe and waterproof rear trunk bag.

LOXI allows you to safely store your accessories directly on your bike and be completely free when parked.

Secure your bike with a classic lock. Leave your accessories in Loxi, on your bike

The roll-top closure system makes the bag opening completely waterproof.

The 2nd layer of the bag is made of cut proof fabric and reaches level 5 according to EN388, European standard for cut resistance. It is a blend of glass fibers, polyester and high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), a material that is 40% stronger than Kevlar.

The panels are also sewn with special UHMWPE material thread to ensure protection against theft.

The construction of LOXI prevents the opening of the roll-top closure system when the lock is closed.

A 12mm diameter cable lock with a 4-digit combination is inserted in the roll-top closure system to attach the bag.

The lock can easily be reset.

Unfortunately, inserting a 12mm cable lock in our LOXI bag and using the most efficient cut-resistant fabric curently existing does not guarantee a 100% theft protection. But we tested LOXI for several weeks, day and night locked on a bike in different Paris streets with absolutely no problem.

LOXI L capacity is 9 liters. You can store inside any bike helmet, gloves, lights, a raincoat, a safety vest…

LOXI S capacity is 4 liters. It can be used to store smaller accessories like Plixi, our foldable bike helmet.

Fastening straps on the back side firmly attach LOXI on a bike rack or keep the bag fully wrapped when empty.

LOXI also includes an inner zip pocket to avoid losing small items.

LOXI is versatile, easy to use and fits any bikes.

There are many ways to attach LOXI on your bike.

When LOXI is empty, it can be wrapped and attached to your bike thanks to fastening straps, making it really small and very convenient to carry.

Loxi can be used as a rear trunk bag or a top-case while riding with fastening straps on your bike rack. LOXI is then as a safe and waterproof as a top-case but much more convenient to use: less bulky, less noisy and lighter.

The cable lock inside LOXI can also be used as an additional lock, for instance to secure your front wheel.

Use your classic lock to secure your bike. Add LOXI to secure your front wheel and store your accessories.

In the end, LOXI is a secured bag, which means you can use it whenever you need to store valuables safely, even if you are not really biking.

Urban cyclists can easily understand the value added offered by LOXI because every time they stop, their accessories are cumbersome. It happens when arriving at work, stopping for a quick shopping, for drinking or parking at home.

A first production run has alreaby been launched to ensure that LOXI will be under your Christmas tree for rewards indicating a shipment in December 2018.

The idea of designing LOXI came after talking with many urban cyclists. Although Plixi, our foldable helmet, is much more convenient than a traditional helmet, especially for bike sharing, some commuters still consider it too bulky and prefer not to wear a helmet.

And some of them told us it would be great to find a way to leave the helmet directly on the bike to be completely free. That’s exactly what we did with LOXI.

At Overade, innovation is in our DNA with the objective of changing the lives of cyclists by making day-to-day rides safe and easy. In this way, we encourage urban mobility.

It is good to have brilliant ideas, but the key is to turn them into concrete products. LOXI was presented in July 2018 at Eurobike, the biggest show in the cycling industry. We are pleased to have received an Award, which proves that it is more than just an idea.

At Overade we have more than 4 years of successful experience in manufacturing quality products. We are present in 20 countries, in Europe, Asia, USA. Many of our foldable helmets are already on the market and we hope it's going to be same with LOXI too!

Risks and challenges

Overade was founded in 2009 when we decided to design and market a unique foldable helmet. Having the idea of such innovation was an important step but the toughest part we had to surpass was clearly the manufacturing process. A bicycle helmet has to be certified, answering very precise aspects. This very high level of technicity had to be applied to the manufacturing phase too. And this is what we did. So today our productions run smoothly but it needed very hard work to reach such level of quality and control.

To be transparent, we clearly learnt a LOT from this first production experience. And we used this huge experience on the LOXI project to reduce risks as much as possible.

Concretely:
1) we made 8 different prototypes to step by step validate the product.
2) we visited and selected a manufacturer completely dedicated to bags manufacturing, making nearly 100% of the production process in house.
3) we left several loxi prototypes outside, under the rain, in the street, locked on a bike for several weeks to check impermeability and risks of theft. Of course loxi passed these tests.
4) we launched the first production run already. The idea was to cover and validate all previous steps and be as ready as possible when the Kickstarter project would start.
5) we already know the company in charge of the quality control of loxi after production and before shipping. This phase was quite easy because we've been working with them for our foldable helmet for years. They've permitted us to maintain a very high quality level on our technical product.

Developing an innovative product from scratch is never simple and easy. We are not saying that nothing is going to happen for sure. We just used our previous experience and paid attention to the smallest details, as we've been doing for years to reduce as much as possible risks on loxi project.
