New York, NY – May 12, 2021 – As the first bike bag brand to cater exclusively to the growing and underserved micromobility population, Po Campo is proud to launch its sustainable, highly reflective City Lights Collection. Micromobility is defined as people using bikes and/or scooters for short trips under five miles. Designed with this micromobility commuter in mind, the new City Lights 4-bag collection is made from Po Campo’s proprietary, sustainable, and reflective Visi-Hemp® fabric and delivers convenience, style, and heightened visibility.
With a dedication to sustainability, Po Campo has developed the world’s first reflective hemp fabric, Visi-Hemp®. A blend of 55% hemp and 45% recycled polyester, Visi-Hemp has highly reflective fibers woven throughout, is soft to the touch, and is extremely durable. The reflective thread is woven in a pattern that mimics the appearance of a city skyline at night and is visible both day and night, allowing the wearer to feel safer when commuting.
“As the bike lane is flooded with more people experiencing the mobile lifestyle, we see them looking for gear that makes micromobility a better and more seamless part of their lives,” states Po Campo founder Maria Boustead. “This is where our specialty comes in and the inspiration for the City Lights collection. We’ve combined our desire to produce an extremely sustainable, user-friendly bag with innovative safety features to create a collection that meets the unique needs of micromobility enthusiasts.”
Available in August 2021, Po Campo’s City Lights collection incorporates stylish designs with strategically placed pockets that are easy to access, and front pocket flaps with Fidlock magnetic snaps to keep belongings secure and protected from the elements. For each City Lights bag purchased, Po Campo will donate 1% of the MSRP to a nonprofit of the customer’s choice.
