Short Summary 

 

Q-FOG was born out of our love and passion for cycling.

 

We all know that weather can be tricky and unpredictable. The urge to ride though, is very predictable. Passionate bikers just want to ride, even when it's hot outside. Sometimes however, it's just too hot, even for the most passionate, devoted and professional cyclists.

 

 

 

You planned to go mountain biking with your buddies, train on your own or take your kids for a cycle in the nearby park. But unlucky for you, the weather is too hot! Wouldn't it be brilliant if there were a small and efficient apparatus that can keep you cool while cycling?

 

Cooling apparatuses for cyclers available in the market today however, are not the most comfortable and efficient. They have to be carried or worn on our bodies and this can create discomfort while riding.  Q-Fog is a new and innovative, field proven cooling water sprayer that addresses the cyclist's need for a minimalistic, comfortable and easy to use device. Q-Fog is also efficient and low on drinking water consumption.

 

 

            

 

About the Q-FOG 

 

Q-Fog is a compact innovative water spraying device that is attached to the bicycle handlebar. The water spray is activated by the cyclist's clicking on the device's operating handle. A fine spray of water emerges upon each click, clinging to the cyclist's clothes. 3 or 4 clicks every few minutes are sufficient to completely moisten the cyclist's torso.  Front wind in turn vaporizes the fine water drops creating a desired cooling effect.

Every click on the Q-FOG's handle as shown above, extracts a measured amount of water which is sprayed over a large area on the cyclist's torso.

 

The Q-FOG is attached to the bicycles' handlebars without interfering with the bicycle's other systems and devices. Q-FOG's unique ergonomic design (with minimal wind resistance) allows intuitive use by the cyclist during riding.

 

 

 

 Product Features and Design

 

Q-FOG consists of two main parts: The spraying unit and the water container.

Why do we need your contribution?

 


After two years in which we have invested all our savings in developing and testing prototypes of the Q-Fog, we have reached the point where some final engineering improvements and fine tunings to the product are needed in order develop a finished version of the device which can be mass produced and sold on the market.
