Transformative Biking Gear

PROBLEM & SOLUTION

Hyperurbanisation has created massive traffic issues in megacities all over the world. As a result, more people are choosing bikes over cars – for inner city commuting the cheaper, healthier, and often an even faster option. Yet, in some situations, even bike lovers have to rely on cars when carrying goods too big for a bag or small backpack.

Sentier is solving this issue by offering a whole line of products that enable people to carry goods. With Sentier and any bike, in any urban and outdoor environment, you can transport products such as groceries, gear and clothes, and even bigger shopping spree items (think IKEA!). Under any circumstance, whether they choose the Sentier bike trolley for larger goods or the foldable handlebar bag for spontaneous shopping, Sentier offers maximum flexibility and independence of cars.
