CINTES, which means tapes in Valencian language, is an original alternative to the handle- bars of your bike. It is a genuine leather grip, just as it was before, but redesigned with a modern touch. You can combi- ne colors to match the style of your bike, they’re a comfortable and original solution. If you know how to tie the laces of your shoes, you’re ready to fit your CINTES.
CINTES is a handmade product that comes in a recycled cardboard box. Inside you will find two pieces of genuine leather, a pair of laces and a pair of bar end plugs of natural cork. There are two lengths to fit all handlebars. They are made with genuine cowhide premium leather and each piece is perforated to sew with laces. There are four leather colors to choose: black, brown, honey and lemon. And five different colors for the laces: red, black, gray, beige and brown. Once sewn handlebar ends are plugged with custom designed plugs , which are 100% handmade from natural cork.
The product is being launched through a crowdfunding website, called Fromlab. From the beginning of year, they help product developers to get their ideas to the market through collective financing system.
The project will be active until July 21st, waiting for some bakers reserve their order and collaborate with Standbikeme in the development of the first series of CINTES. Once the term is held, the production will start and the first leather grips freshly baked will be distributed. After this release they will be available in the Standbikeme online store along with other accessories and bikes.
In a video presentation CINTES you will see how they fit on the handlebars in an easy way. And remember, those old finishes where handmade things have a special flair.
