Roaring years for cyclists all over the planet: the cycle paths grow, the environmental sensitivity as well. And the solutions? Well, between classic bikes, e-bikes, pedelecs and more, you are spoiled for choice. All the accessories are driven by, always looking for a way to meet an audience hungry for news and gadgets.
This seems particularly appropriate, because it is essential and undoubtedly useful. It's called CORKY X. It says "that is". It is essentially a rearview mirror for the bike. No, not one of the kind of graziella, to be attached with its nice arm to a handlebar. It is a mirror that allows the user to keep all his aerodynamics, even on a racing bike.
Put the mirror on the glasses ("Occhialino" would have been more correct, but I lost the rhyme)
CORKY X has a very small footprint. Its goal (fully centered) is to allow the cyclist to see what is happening behind him without physically looking over his shoulder. What's more: without even turning your head in the slightest. How? Thanks to its mounting system. The small mirror is mounted on the “frame” of a normal pair of sunglasses.
A precious, tiny life saver. Think of an easy-to-fix mirror that fits any pair of sunglasses and is “positioned” right at the corner of the “visual periphery”, so as not to block the view of the road in front of the cyclist.
It also has a “nerdy” and familiar look, for those who are passionate about technology, and with its weight of just 14 grams it does not risk tilting the glasses. In short, it is not one of those ridiculous clashes: it has weight, form factor, aerodynamics and functionality that fit perfectly. Everything about this mirror does its part well in ensuring perfect operation without failures or accidents.
On Kickstarter, where it started with a small crowdfunding campaign, it has achieved its goal and is also in presale.
