Presentation final design of the revolutionary Basil Commuter Carrier
“Imagine carefree commuting on your e-bike, because you know that your belongings fit perfectly on your bicycle, are carried shockproof, that you are highly visible and your bicycle is Smart (IoT) connected.”
This is what Basil had in mind, when it developed the new innovative carrier together with other international experts in their fields: Spanninga, Tracefy, Massload and MIK. The carrier is developed for the fastest growing global target group: the demanding commuters, who consciously decide to purchase a bicycle for their commute (a design e-bike or speed-pedelec in the mid to very high segment). Basil is convinced that commuters will highly adulate all the unique features during their ride to work & home. Moreover, that they will fall in love with the stylish and modern design of the carrier.
The new Basil Commuter Carrier features countless new innovations among which:
The fastest growing integrated system for luggage carriers: MIK
MIK Smart Box for Tracefy: the option to make your bike “smart” with the Tracefy IoT system
Production and quality guaranteed by the top carrier producer Massload
Being an accessory producer, for Basil it is crucial that carriers can do what they are meant for: carry stuff! That may seem obvious, but unfortunately nowadays many carriers are not suitable (enough) to fit bags and baskets. That is why Basil ensures that not only Basil accessories will fit, but also the products from brands like Ortlieb and Vaude.
Many cyclists experience that their heels hit the office bag during their ride. That is mainly due to the horizontal orientation and width of (office) bicycle bags. Thanks to the adjustable tube, every bag can be hung angled, creating space for your feet and heels.
Due to bumpy roads your bicycle has to undergo heavy forces. Most of the time, suspension on a bicycle is designed to give the cyclist a more comfortable and less dangerous ride. However, the goods carried on the bicycle are subjected to all forces almost without any limitation. The Basil Shock Absorbing Tube solves this issue: not only is the tube angle-adjustable (to create space for your heel), but also rests in a special shock absorbing (damping) foam, which takes care of reducing the forces on the bar/bag. Thus, the bag and its content will be less damaged, and it will also reduce any noise of rattling of the bag, the movement of the bag, and the impact of the weight of the bag on the carrier and bicycle.
