Where form meets function

To improve the bicycle storage of urban cyclists, Latvia-based brand Velo Sock has developed a unique and innovative bicycle cover, named Velo Sock, which is all about keeping your apartment clean in a stylish way. The sock-like cover is made from a flexible material mix consisting of 90% polyester and 10% spandex. Once it has accumulated sand or other impurities, it can be turned inside out and cleaned. If the bike has left stains on the Velo Sock, it can also be placed in a washing machine for a wash. The sock-like cover is fitted by lifting the front wheel of the bicycle and placing it around the wheel—the fabric should fully fit and tightly adhere to the bicycle wheel. Once done, gently pull the Velo Sock over the pedals, gears and rear wheel, taking care that the fabric does not become jammed behind the bicycle’s sharp parts. Voila. Velo Sock is now available at the brand’s online store for $69 USD.
