Designed to protect a bicycle from theft and weathering elements, the Alpen Bike Capsule is a great accessory for space constrained cyclists. Made from LLDPE plastic and equipped with an integrated locking mechanism, it protects your bike without sacrificing your interior space. With its waterproof design, the bike storage unit is ideal to be stored outside your home, inside a garage or common area of the building.
Each bike storage pod is rotationally molded in giant ovens just like kayaks and Yeti coolers. It can accommodate almost any type of bike, including mountain bikes with wide handlebars, and it has additional space for other cycling gear too.
Measuring 79″ long, 53″ high and 32″ wide, the Alpen Bike Capsule is mounted to the ground from inside using bolts making it really difficult to steal the bike. It is a rust proof, UV resistant and has lockable bike storage that’s designed to sit beautifully on the front porch of a luxe home.
The Alpen bike storage pod comes with integrated locking mechanism which can only be opened with a key. It locks automatically as the door rotates, much like the trunk of a car. Although it isn’t a strong box, it is an elegant and secure solution against opportunistic bike theft.
It can even be bolted to a pickup truck bed, and the company is also working on adapters for a trailer hitch and RV mounting. The commercial grade Alpen Bike Capsule is still under development and will be equipped with centralized, electronic access, allowing building managers to efficiently control access to different units.
If you’re looking for innovative outdoor bike storage solutions, the Alpen Bike Capsule is a good choice. It is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price of $899, with expected delivery in Summer 2018.
