Bike-Mounted Spray Keeps Summer Cyclists Cool

Bike-Mounted Spray Keeps Summer Cyclists Cool

The Q-Fog attaches to a bike's handlebars and allows bikers to cool down by misting themselves.

Israeli entrepreneurs Kobi Rein and Arik Bar Erez have found a simple solution to a common problem cyclists face during long rides in hot weather. Called the Q-Fog, it is a misting gadget that mounts to the bike’s handlebars and consists of a water container and spray head, which can be rotated in any direction. According to the developers, this is the first spray device intended for bikes, and will allow cyclists to cool down without stopping for a break.

The ergonomically-designed device is operated by squeezing the handle, which realizes a mist across the rider’s torso, cooling the body as the water evaporates. It weighs less than 3 ounces but can hold up to 100ml of water, which the founders claim is sufficient for a 2-3 hour ride.

If the Q-Fog moves past the current prototype phase and into mass production (with $415 out of $70,000 raised as of the time of publication, there is still far to go), it could be a welcome reprieve for summer cyclists. The founders are currently soliciting funding through Indiegogo.
