” Electra Bicycle Company repurposes plastic found in the ocean to create a simplistic bike basket called the Plasket. The company is the leading bike basket supplier to independent bicycle dealers in the United States. Its latest innovation is a collaboration with Oceanworks, the largest global marketplace for sustainable materials.
Each ocean-friendly Plasket snaps on and off the bike handlebars with ease so that users can take their baskets with them wherever they go. Ideal for a quick trip to the local grocer or collecting seashells, the Plasket is available in four vibrant colors, including Mint and Guava. Bikers can easily transport their personal belongings, as its weight capacity is 5 kilograms, while it fits roughly 27 liters of cargo.”
If you know Electra, you know that we were born and raised at the beach and the ocean is our backyard. That’s why we’re super excited to introduce our newest product that helps keep our beaches and ocean clean. Meet the Electra Plasket™. It’s a bike basket made using one pound of recycled ocean plastic. Basket + Plastic = Plasket. Clever, eh?
Let’s face it, ocean plastic is a huge problem and it’s said that if we don’t change course there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.
The Plasket comes standard with a mounting bracket that fits a standard 22.2mm handlebar. Get this… we also created a 10mm and 12mm bracket that is a perfect for mounting the Plasket to a rack as a pannier. There will also be a 31.8mm bracket that will fit bikes like the Vale Go!. We’ll shaka to that. Just be sure to ask your local Electra dealer.
With colors like Mint, Lunar Grey, Shell White and Guava, there is no doubt you’ll find a Plasket that fits your style. It’s the perfect basket for carrying all your stuff on and off your bike. The best part? Every time you use it, it’s like giving Mother Nature a high five. Talk about feeling good. Get in on the fun and get your Plasket today!
