Ever since 2013, there is an universal smartphone mount for bicycles called Finn. This silicone piece was developed by Bike Citizens, but not just by chance. The Bike Citizens crew was working on their newly developed app “BikeCityGuide” (today: Bike Citizens). This cycling navigation app was great for urban cycling, but still faced one last challenge:
How to attach your smartphone to your handlebars? The market demanded a better solution, resulting in the creation of Finn. Why the name Finn? The answer to this question has eluded many and nobody really knows whence it came from.
Production around the corner
Our Finns are forged in Austria, just a short drive from our main Graz office. To make Finns we use 100% high quality Bavarian silicone, which get molded into that recognisable and patented Finn shape. After cooling off and having the Bike Citizens logo stamped on, its ready for packing. The Finn packaging is made from PEFC-certified paper. Printing takes place in Styria, Austria and the actual packing is done in an Austrian federal prison in Graz, just a stone’s throw away from the Bike Citizens headquarters.
