Well what are the chances of this? Just days from saying I’m not one for Kickstarter campaigns comes another bit of news.
This time it’s different though, as I’ve been contacted by a local company with a big plans for the future. Here at MoleHQ we love to support local companies so we’re happy to oblige.
Upper Downs are a Brighton based design-oriented cycle clothing company who have put a lot of work into developing Neo, what they describe as ‘one of the most technical, breathable, waterproof cycling jackets ever made’. That’s quite some claim it must be said.
The thinking behind it is versatility to cater for our ever changing weather – if it works here in the UK (or in the Brecon Beacons as can be seen in the promo video), the theory goes it will work anywhere. To help develop the jacket, Upper Downs have enlisted the services of World Cup downhill rider Harry Molloy.
Incidentally, that Brecon video brings back great memories of our trip to Wales last year!
Why not head over to the Neo cycling jacket’s Kickstarter page and find out more? And I promise I’m not going to turn into a Kickstarter flunky by posting dubious product pitches!
