presented during milan design week 2013, the bicycle accessories are part of ECAL’s ‘savoir-faire’, which showcases new projects in industrial and product design. led by designer rotterdam-based chris kabel, the series of objects and attachments provide clever solutions for the daily cyclist. the collection includes a bell + cable brake, ‘zap-strap’ attachments such as LED lights, water bottle and bag hooks – a rain deflector, snow chain and valve stem caps.
