A trolley bag is the best choice to to take care of your belongings during your trips and adventures, easy to deploy and move around. You can bring it with you in your tent or up in your hotel room in a comfortable way

 

 

 

Fasten it to your favourite Mountain bike or beloved Race masterpiece as well as your sturdy Gravel bike!! No need of supports and racks, just the custom quick release that we provide.

A trailer does not overload the bike frame and the wheels. 

 

The one wheel design enhance drivability even in the narrow single tracks.

The hook & unhooking operations are easy and fast, tool-less and practical, every component is being designed to allow you to quickly convert the trailer into trolley and vice versa!

I'm a hungry bike traveller as well as a designer so I developed a luggage I could fill-in with all the stuff needed for my adventures!

I started developing my own first trailer and then figured out how this could have a positive and useful impact in the cycle world.

When the goal is to create the ultimate bike trailer in the market, time, technology and testing are everything. For months we designed, 3D printed and messed up with iron and fiberglass, until we came up with a fully functional model. It had steel inserts to fit the mechanical parts and welded metal to hack some bike parts to fit the trailer properly.

 The tools we used for prototyping went from mainly evocative simulations and rudimentary acted-out scenarios or improvised props to detailed mock-ups of the system, the environment and the staff.

 The best part of designing gear for touring is the fact that you need to travel. And cycle. So we got our bikes, we got our trailers, and we head up to the airport. Next flight was to Stockholm, Sweden. A wild scenario to check out how our hardcore prototype would react in real life.e are a bunch of lucky

10 days and 1300km were ahead us. We designed the perfect route to made a high-intensity test based on a medium-long distance bike trip. All the coordinations were adjusted to the smallest detail and we were ready to ride for more than 100km per day.

The testing was carried with one prototype and two bike trailers of competitors alongside, which lead us to fully evaluate the conceptual designs and make improvements.

 All this has been possible thanks to the unconditional support of Goalzero, Cinelli, Heimplanet, EVOC and Loopwheel. They provided us not only with the equipment required for this adventure but also with professional tips to make it happen.

 

 

 

 

                                                                                              

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                 

 

 

      

 Thank you to all of you backers supporting this project!!

A special thanks to Industrio Ventures, the Italian hardware startup accelerator that gave us the propeller and boost to make this project possible.

A huge thanks to Andrea Pugiotto from Ippocampo Studio that made all these amazing photos and videos to document all the work done and present it in the best way possible!

Risks and challenges

The design and features are 100% definite, we have well established relations with supply chain Italian manufacturers and partners, all based in the North East of Italy close to us, so we definitely have control over who is going to produce and what. The major part of the development has already been completed, we will begin the pre-series manufacturing and testing thanks to the Kickstarter campaign.

We are supported by the Italian hardware startup accelerator Industrio Ventures, meaning that we get a steady support of specialists on new product and business development, industrialization and business administration.

We have the technical expertise to control the project management side as well as part of the assembling process. So there are no major or peculiar risks with reference to the design and engineering side. We might face short delays in the delivery of components however we will be doing our best to ensure a timely delivery of your Sentier Bike Trolley.
