Assisted vertical bike rack
Our client, the Ministry for the Environment of Mexico City, needed a user-friendly bike parking system for their new cycle hubs. These 400 space hubs link cycling infrastructure to the city’s metro system. The space was limited, so they specifically wanted a vertical storage system to fit all the bikes in. It was essential that it be easy for all members of the public to use. They chose our vertical bike rack as the perfect option for these projects. With gas spring assist and an easy to use lifting system, they are suitable for everyone. We added graphic design instructions to make it even clearer and to customise the racks for our client.
This initial project has been extended to more locations across the city public transport network. This means that user-friendly bike storage in Neko racks is now available to thousands of commuters every day.
Our client has gained considerable international recognition thanks to our work designing cycle hubs and bike parking systems. In 2017, Mexico City was awarded a ‘Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements Award’ by UN-Habitat for these Massive Bicycle Parking Facilities, featuring Neko vertical bike racks.
