Based out of Charlottesville, VA, Alpen Storage Inc is in the process of finalising a private investment round which will help the company bring its outdoor bike storage solution, Bike Capsule, to market in mid-2018.
Alpen’s Bike Capsule, with its modern rounded aesthetic, claims to be a waterproof and secure storage solution for storing any type of bike with a handlebar under 815mm wide.
The patent pending design will utilize an integrated BlueTooth lock and internal planetary gearbox to offer easy, yet secure access. The capsule claims to be strong and easily bolted to any surface. A press release from the company states that the capsule can be used in any “home, apartment, office building, or even on the back of an RV”.
We’re told some finer details are still being finalised and will be announced early 2018. Estimated retail price will be US$1,200.
