ALPEN was founded to provide space constrained, urban cyclists an appealing alternative to storing bikes inside their living and work spaces. Founder, Eric Pearson, is a lifelong cyclist whose constant struggle with keeping bikes safe and dry, yet accessible, led to the theft of six bikes during his lifetime. Confident that there must be a better way, Pearson set out to design the solution. Cocktail napkin sketches soon evolved to CAD designs and ALPEN was soon born.
In 2016, the budding ALPEN team set out to develop the World’s most innovative bicycle storage solution for the commercial, municipal and residential property sectors. The goal was to create a bike locker beautiful enough to live on the front porch of a luxury home, yet durable enough to stand up inclement weather and thieves in a commercial property setting. We took an artistic approach to industrial design, seamlessly blending form and function, to create a user friendly solution with a sculptural aesthetic. Equally at home on the deck of your high alpine cabin as it is in an urban apartment complex, ALPEN Bike Capsules are built tough, ready to provide years of stress free bike storage outside of your living and work spaces. Finally, you can reclaim that valuable interior space that has long been occupied by your trusty bicycle.
We hope that ALPEN can help you mitigate your bike storage concerns, allowing you to focus on the glorious benefits of the cycling lifestyle, without some of the old hassles. We welcome your feedback and look forward to introducing more innovative lifestyle solutions in the near future. Happy riding!
