The CapaCITY uses space more efficiently than any other two-tier bicycle rack and is available at a very low price. The CapaCITY allows you to store bicycles one above the other, thus doubling storage capacity at a stroke. The system uses integrated gas springs to provide assistance when lifting bicycles to the upper level.

All CapaCITY models comply with FietsParKeur standards for dual-level bicycle parking systems. FietsParKeur guarantees high quality bicycle parking facilities. The standard has been developed in collaboration with the Dutch Cyclists Association.
There is a securing loop for every bicycle on the CapaCITY. The securing loops are big enough for cable and chain locks. At your request, all CapaCITY models can come with additional facility to attach bicycle locks to the CapaCITY frame called an International Connection Facility (ICF).
- Installation set for joining racks together.
VelopA will be happy to provide an instruction sign. The sign can be hung up in a prominent place near the bicycle parking system.
The CapaCITY is suitable for bicycles with:
- tyre thickness of between 30 mm and 50 mm
- wheel diameter of between 26" and 28"
In other words, models including city bicycles, hybrid bicycles and children’s bicycles.
REDUCING CO2 EMISSIONS
In developing the Easylift Premium, we took the reduction of CO2 emissions into careful consideration. As a result, our CO2 emissions during the production process have now been reduced by 44 %. That is an average of 660 tonnes per year!
In order to make it easier to find your bicycle, there are options to use different colours for the grips on the racks (depending on the amount of the racks). Marker posts or identification numbers are also options for finding the right aisles.
IDEAL FOR USERS
Stability and security:
Thanks to the smart design of the wheel grips and the anti-roll-off security feature, your bike is very secure and safe. Bikes cannot roll off the racks or bounce out of the gutters.
Low sill height:
To park your bikes on top, the user has to at least lift the front wheel of the bicycle. The sill height is very low (an average of 37 cm).
In pushing the bicycle upwards, the user is supported by the CapaCITY’s system of gas springs. This means that minimal effort is required from the cyclist. The upward operating force for bicycles that weigh around 20 kilos is:
- less than 15 kilos up to a height of 135 cm above the ground
- less than 10 kilos from a height of 135cm and higher
The extendible part of the rack is pushed back and down in a fluid, straight motion.
Ergonomically designed handles:
The plastic handle has an ergonomic shape. The handle’s diameter, structure, measurements and design make it very user-friendly for both left and right-handed people.
The clever drainage system ensures that users cannot be surprised by a sudden ‘shower’ when they pull out parts of the rack.
IDEAL FOR MANAGERS
Anchoring the system into the ground is possible but not essential. It could be useful during installation and when the system is temporarily moved.
All the critical components are covered and not easily accessible. The construction is fitted with vandal-proof security bolts.
The frames can be adjusted in two directions to compensate for any irregularities in the floor.
Standard installation is onto the ground, on a concrete floor. Other installation options may be possible. Please ask about the possibilities.
