Cube’s ATX Utility Poncho Safety is now in stock at distributor Oneway Bike.
The poncho combines multi-layered technical fabric, taped seams and a water-resistant zip. An integrated peak on the hood keeps the water out of your eyes and all-over reflective fabric improves visibility, even in a heavy downpour.
“In a country where biking is becoming more and more popular, but where the chance of rain is high, the Cube ATX Utility Poncho is a welcome accessory,” said Oneway Bike.
The ATX Utility Poncho Safety was one of four Cube products to win a Design & Innovation Award in 2022. For nine years, the Design & Innovation Award (DI.A) has tested the most promising new products of the next season in real-world conditions to identify stand-out products and the most important trends early on.
“The Cube ATX Utility Poncho Safety is a lifesaver on those dark and wet days,” said the DI.A jury. “With its fully reflective surface, it increases your visibility to the next level without a lurid neon yellow shine to blind you. The waterproof material, water-repellent zipper and taped seams ensure that you stay dry and comfortable inside.
“Fear not, the poncho doesn’t just hang listlessly over your shoulders and offers plenty of functionality instead. The sides can be clipped together to form sleeves or you can drape it over your arms, hands and bars, while straps around the torso and wrists keep it securely in place. Only the bulky pack size is a bit annoying.
“Conclusion: the Cube ATX Utility Poncho Safety is an exceptionally well-implemented companion for year-round, everyday life on the bike, which combines safety with comfort. Be seen and stay dry!”
