Store Your Bike in Velohawk’s Bespoke Pods

This is what Rouleur magazine had to say about the New Zealand-created innovation, the Velohawk: “So you’ve decided, picked out and bought your dream bike. It’s delivered, well protected and built with a precision hand. You might even have it fitted to you and expertly secured to your car for the journey home – only to lean it up against the kids’ bikes, or the pub hack, or maybe in the spare room, if you’re lucky.

“Velohawk saw the travesty behind this common story and sought to create a solution to not only solve, but to perfect bike storage for modern living,” the magazine reported.

“Unveiled at the 2018 Rouleur Classic and engineered in the UK, the Velohawk adds security, protection and improved aesthetics over traditional storage solutions. Your best bike truly deserves the premium treatment and the Velohawk pulls no punches.

“If you need any more convincing, it comes endorsed by Jumbo-Visma’s George Bennett, who liked what he saw and was an early backer of the company. His insight and ambition, Velohawk say, was key to the successful positioning of the product.

“For Rouleur Desire it felt fitting to shoot the Velohawk at prestigious car dealership H.R. Owen, renowned for dealing in cars from the epitome of motor manufacturers, including Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini.”

Velohawk was founded by former ironman James Doughty.
