MYVELORBIS CYCLE CREATOR GIVES CUSTOMERS MILLIONS OF WAYS TO DESIGN THE BIKE OF THEIR DREAMS

velorbis-design-tool

Copenhagen, 23 May 2017, Velorbis, the Danish bicycle and accessories brand, unveils today an innovative new way for customers to become bike designers by customising and personalising their favourite Velorbis model. The MyVelorbis Cycle Creator, a new and comprehensive online design tool, changes the way people can choose and buy a bicycle. Customers can create their perfect bike and put their stamp on the way it looks with their combination of colours, components and accessories.

Kenneth Bødiker, CEO of Velorbis says, “We have a standard range of colours that we love but we didn’t want to stop there. We wanted to let our customers decide what works for them. There is nothing on the bicycle market quite like it. Instead of simply offering a few models, colours and components to choose from – and no accessories – we offer millions of combinations that can inspire and fire customers’ imaginations.”

MyVelorbis Cycle Creator is straightforward and fun to use. Firstly, customers choose a Velorbis bicycle model from eight options. Secondly, they select components from more than 10 options, such as a front carrier or a basket. Companies can use this function to select advertising plate(s), which they can brand by uploading their logo, slogan, etc. Thirdly, customers pick their colours from literally all the colours of the rainbow – 203 colours in total. Finally, they can add their finishing touches with cycle accessories from the current Velorbis range.

The completed masterpiece can then be shared online on social networks – with friends and family as well as business associates and colleagues if it’s a branded bike. After purchasing, the standard delivery time of 4-6 weeks applies and, as with all Velorbis bicycles, the bicycle models are designed in Denmark and made in Germany, which enables this short lead time.

MyVelorbis Cycle Creator reflects the consumer shift towards personalisation and customisation of branded lifestyle products. The online tool lets customers put their individual twist on their purchase, creating something unique that suits their style and will always be special to them. Customers can be inspired by fashion colours, classic shades, art-inspired mixes, national colours, sports team colours, and different variations of a tone – red on red, all the blues, etc.

Equally, companies and organisations can make a statement and be on-brand in an eye-catching and mobile way with branded advertising plates. As with pop-up stores, branded bicycles can pop up at prime locations or marketing events, any time.

“By letting customers choose the colours they love, their bicycle will always be timeless to them, just like the clothes they wear, the interior design they choose, the art they hang on their walls,” concludes Kenneth Bødiker. “It’s storytelling on two wheels – with the same high-quality that comes with a Velorbis bicycle.”

Historien om det dansk-svenske cykelmærke Velorbis er historien om to revisorer, der kvittede international finansrådgiving for at udbrede skandinavisk cykeltradition.

Danske Kenneth Bødiker og svenske Christian Linde arbejdede som revisorer for Deloitte i London og sad i en bus på vej til arbejde, da terrorbomberne sprang i undergrunden i juli 2005.

De så, hvordan londonerne piblede op af jorden og i deres iver efter at komme hjem hurtigst muligt for ind i cykelbutikkerne og købte den første og bedste cykel. I ugerne efter begyndte de to revisorer at lægge mærke til forskellene på cyklisterne i den engelske hovedstad og hjemme i Skandinavien.

Tophistorie 7. juli 2005 kort før klokken ni går Kenneth Bødiker mod det nærmeste stoppested ved hans hjem i London. Han tager bussen til arbejde – revisionshuset Deloittes kontor i centrum. Samtidig stiger fire britiske selvmordsbombere på hver deres bus og undergrundstog i byen. Kenneth Bødiker stiger på bussen og sætter sig til rette. Den 3x-årige revisor har de sidste x år arbejdet som revisor i London, hvor han rådgiver nogle af finanssektorens største virksomheder i risikostyring. Men han har ingen anelse om, hvad der venter ham om få minutter. Klokken 8.50 udløser de fire terrorister deres bomber. Tre toge eksploderer til ukendelighed og en rød bus bliver forvandlet til en krøllet bunke metal. London bryder sammen og går i kaos. Folk løber i alle retninger. Larmen fra eksplosionerne bliver afløst af skrig. “Der er så mange mennesker i gaderne, og vi kan slet ikke være i bussen. Det er mærkeligt – bussen plejer aldrig at være fyldt. Der må være sket noget,” tænker Kenneth Bødiker, imens han kører gennem byen, der koger af angst og forvirring. Han kommer ind på kontoret, hvor han får de første nyheder om, hvad der er sket. Kort efter ringer Deloitte fra Danmark for at høre, om Kenneth Bødiker er i sikkerhed. Det er han. Men 56 mennesker mistede livet og mindst 700 er såret. “Det er en katastrofe,” tænker han, der føler sig heldig over ikke at have været i den forkerte bus. To uger efter bliver Londons transportsystem igen lammet. Fire bomber bliver fundet i tre toge og en bus – de nåede ikke at detonere. Rædslen gennemsyrer byens borgere den næste tid, og mange tør ikke tage offentlig transport. Heller ikke Kenneth Bødiker og hans kollega Christian Linde, der var på forretningsrejse i København, da bomberne sprang. Herfra kunne han de toge, han dagligt stiger på, være sprængt i stykker. “Der skal jeg ikke ind igen,” tænkte Christian Linde. Sætningen bliver starten på et eventyr, der fører de to gutter til utallige modemesser og ind i favnen på de mest efterspurgte designere og brands.
