Cars are so last season. The world is changing – with the climate change threatening the survival of human beings and gas costs skyrocketing, a record number of people are opting for a much healthier and cheaper commute – cycling.
There are billions of bikes produced every year, which basically means one thing – they are mainstream. FlyKly, the main sponsor of this challenge, is just the right example to illustrate cyclists’ devotion to finding the smoothest and smartest way to travel.
“Cycling is a great solution to commute in the city, escape the traffic, save the environment and be part of the community. FlyKly is dedicated to making bicycle friendly cities and improving the way we travel from A to Z in the fastest, smoothest and smartest way possible. With this challenge, FlyKly would like to encourage designers to design innovative accessories for urban cycling that will be available instantly to 3D print and fun to use in order to make the urban cycling fun, safe and smart,” says Niko Klansek, Founder of FlyKly.
3D printing is here to help us take advantage of mass personalization by offering cyclists the opportunity to customize their urban beasts. 3D Printed Bicycle Accessories Challenge is an opportunity for you to tap into this huge and still growing market.
Cyclists take their gear very seriously, so if you can offer them relevant, and (more importantly) better products than the ones that already exist in the marketplace, you can be sure to grow some loyal clientele.
What does it take to turn a standard bike into a street-killer? Just about everything you can think of: valve caps, mirrors, wall mounts, bottle holders, mud guards or handlebar grips… Take a good look at a bike and go reinvent it. Please.
