Bicycle parking solutions for Sports / Recreation
Research conducted by Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen shows that only 31% of the bicycles are actually placed in the designated bicycle parking facilities. The main reason is that today’s bicycles, equipped with wide handlebars with cables and accessories, fat tires, front fork suspension and luggage carrier, simply do not fit into the conventional cramped bicycle parking solutions. The result of all this is a messy, unsafe street scene and an increase in damage to and theft of the valuable contemporary bicycles.
The AXLE product line is suitable for all contemporary bicycles with wheel sizes from 26 to 28 inches, with accessories and tires up to a thickness of 60 mm. AXLE is equipped with a theft-proof tie-down facility and can be installed without any earthwork.

Damage to the precious bicycle
For fear of damaging the bicycle wheels, so-called ‘rim killer’ bicycle clamps are hardly used. Front fork systems are not popular because they damage the (suspension) front fork and are too narrow for bicycles with a luggage carrier on the front fork. Handlebar hanging systems are not suitable for crate bicycles and bicycles with cables and accessories.
AXLE supports parked bicycles very stably only on the front wheel hub and puts an end to the ‘rim killer’ phenomenon! There is no contact / conflict whatsoever with the vulnerable parts of the precious bicycle.
Increase in bicycle theft
No fewer than 735,000 bicycles and e-bikes were stolen in 2021! Stichting Aanpak Fiets- en E-bike theft makes an urgent appeal to municipalities “To make extra efforts to prevent and combat this phenomenon that is getting out of hand. The main cause is the inability to secure the valuable (electric) bicycles to the bicycle frame in a theft-proof manner. (source)
AXLE can be fitted with a fixed attachment device IVO or a flexible attachment device ROSE that enables attachment to the frame and rear wheel! E-loading locker CHARLY offers the possibility to load while parking while the e-bike and transformer are both secured with their own tie-down chain.
Efficient use of space & placement
Bicycle leaning gates (bicycle staples) require a lot of surface area and result in a messy streetscape due to the careless parking of bicycles. The disadvantage of installing these traditional leaning gates is the nuisance and environmentally harmful earthwork that often costs more than the sheds themselves.
Bicycle leaning gate UNO forces users by means of the ground girders to store the bicycles neatly centrally. Capacity parking AXLE offers more space on the same surface. Both systems can be installed without earthwork pop-up.
Sustainability & Circularity
Discussions about sustainability ‘People, Planet, Profit’ and ‘Green Deal’ are the order of the day. Putting all this into practice is a major challenge for many municipalities.
All our products are fully circular in design: high quality, 100% functional and modularly constructed from a limited number of parts. Can be assembled and installed on site after compact transport with light vehicles without costly, polluting and nuisance-causing earthwork. In the event of damage, our products are easy to repair and easy to recycle at the end of their lifespan.
The UNO bicycle railing is supplied in units for parking and tethering 8 bicycles. The ground girders force the users to place the bicycle neatly and centrally between the brackets. UNO is installed without earthwork and offers the perfect temporary (pop-up) solution if desired.
Capacity parking AXLE in the so-called high/low version offers more bicycle spaces on the same surface.
The 500mm c.c. size offers all modern bicycles an orderly, easily accessible place with a theft-proof attachment facility. The double-sided bicycles are pushed together in such a way that less space is required.
