Our Radar Roundup compiles products and videos from the ‘net in an easy-to-digest format. Read on below for today’s findings…
Cosmic Dirt is a new apparel company that just launched a Kickstarter Campaign to raise liquidity to fund its ambitious apparel project: design and manufacture MTB and outdoor clothing in sizes from XS – 4x. If you have friends who are bigger-bodied, then you know their struggle to find apparel that fits them properly. Grading in clothing can be expensive and time-consuming, so your support can help Cosmic Dirt do it right! See more at the Kickstarter…
Bags. We love them. Especially ones that are a little different from other offerings. This Edinburgh, UK-based Kickstarter campaign was sent to us and we felt like you’d want to see it. The Stac Pack is a hip bag or a sling bag with multiple uses. Check out the launch video above and if you’re into this bag, see more at the Kickstarter campaign.
The Makers in Motion Camera Strap is a cycling camera strap designed to make taking photos on and off your bike quick, seamless, and secure. With magnetic hardware and slick seat belt webbing, this strap is so easy to use that bringing a camera with you will be a no-brainer. See the full details at the Kickstarter Campaign.
Shift Cycling Culture is working on a film called ‘Cracked Earth’ and the campaign to fund the project has just been listed on Kickstarter. Here’s a synopsis:
Cracked Earth won’t beat around the bush. Because we no longer can. Climate change is not a future threat; it’s our generation’s reality. The film captures the lives of cyclists in vulnerable areas around the world who share their love for the bike, but also their concern about the current state of their homeland – and its ever more uncertain future.
Cyclists just like you.

Aren’t familiar with the Rough Stuff Fellowship? Well, here’s a good introduction. After a successful Vol. 1 book, featuring impressive feats of bicycle touring photos and stories, the RSF has launched a Vol. 2 on Kickstarter…
Without trail working tools, our favorite trails would exist in disarray. Sometimes packing a full kit into the backcountry can be cumbersome and a new Kickstarter looks to rectify that. The GRIP N RIP Dirt Tool Set features everything you’d need to work dirt in a compact and lightweight package.

As you can imagine, mounting your $1000 cell phone to your bike can be pretty unnerving and that’s why you need a good, secure system. Peak Designs has developed an Out-Front and Universal bike mount, using their new Slimlink system. Check out their Kickstarter video here and see more at their campaign website.
I must say, we get sent A LOT of Kickstarter campaigns over here at the Radavist but this one is one of the most unique ideas I’ve seen:
“CHOKA is an airtight bicycle brand from the Pyrenees created by to bike fanatics: Claire and Joel both independent industrial designers. We want to create simple, playful, and durable bicycles with a little extra in case of a flat tire.
We dream of a better world, without disposable CO2 cartridges but with a lighter and more efficient solution than hand pumps. In 2018, for the Concours de Machines, we designed and built a prototype with Yoann, Menhirs frame builder. It that has been turning heads: we welded our frame airtight to use it as an air reserve. We can then inflate our tires and even set up tubeless!”

Surely, if you read this website, you love nature and animals of all kinds. PUKE is a film our friend Foster Huntington worked on, documenting a group of people who collect owl pellets for money… This project is on Kickstarter and there are some great promotional products like a VHS and t-shirts up for grabs, so if this looks interesting to you, and you have the means to, head over and back this film.
It’s not every day we see a new handlebar bag design that causes pause. The Route Werks Handlebar bag is live on Kickstarter and it has a bunch of neat features, which you can find out all about by watching this video and heading over to their Kickstarter…
Daysaver just launched on Kickstarter. These made in Switzerland tools offer up 9 operations at only 45 grams by using nesting hex keys and a nifty frame mount. We see a lot of tools over here but this one is one of the cleverest yet. Check out more at their Kickstarter.
Handlebar designs are all the rage these days but what do you think of the Oyster Bar? I’ve never seen anything like it! Check it out on Kickstarter.
If you have a commuter bike that you lock up in a city, chances are you have some sort of wheel security. Iozzio Cycles’ new Integrated Bike Lights are part locking skewer and part battery-powered safety lights. Check out this video describing the Iozzio Cycles’ Kickstarter project.
Or is it a backpack that transforms into a handlebar bag? See more of this waterproof, innovative bag at SVOLTA’s Kickstarter.
Riding to have a picnic? Or to a party? Or the beach? Check out the MUUL RuckBucket insulated cooler pack, big enough for the essentials, yet small enough to carry around on your back or a porteur rack. Where ever you go, you can bring the party with ya! See more at Kickstarter.
By now, I’m sure most of you have at least one bike with tubeless tires. Part of owning a tubeless setup is having the right tools to keep you rolling fret-free. Snēk Cycling’s newest product, the Lifeboat Tire Lever has a few added details to help maintain tubeless tires, as well as the tried and true functionality of a classic tire lever. See more at their Kickstarter.
