Kitnetik: A nifty way to dry and store cycling gear

kitnetik cycling clothes dryer

The two most common questions in Tim Hoyle’s house used to be “have you seen my (enter cycling-related item of your choice here)?” and “Can you please put away your (enter cycling-related item of your choice here)?”

It’s the reason he invented the Kitnetik, a clever magnetic rack that allows you to efficiently dry all of your current running or cycling kit, including your rain-soaked shoes. Powerful magnets make attaching and detaching from steel radiators quick and easy. The result is a neater house whilst drying kit, quicker to store it all away, and it’s all kept together so you shouldn’t loose the bits you currently need.

    Oh go on then!
    Though I’m intrigued to know how you hang a top that doesn’t have a full length zip? Or have I been doing coat hangers ‘wrong’ all my life!
    Also should it not made of carbon and cost and north of £100? To satisfy the discerning/asperational amongst us?

    £40? – for a glorified coat hanger? It must be made of carbon fibre.
    I wouldn’t turn down a gift though.

    Even the designer’s own website describes the non-magnetic version as [and I quote] “the non-magnetic option that is just a big coat-hanger”: for a mere £35!

      Yes, of course we send out the prizes. Furthermore, with one prize a week and an average number of entries each week of, let’s say, 50, the odds mean that with average luck you should win once a year. There’s one more thing worth mentioning – when we have pre-ordered a prize via a crowdfunding website (as in the case of the Kitnetik) we sometimes have to wait a long time for it to be sent to us so we only draw a winner when it’s safely in our hands. Most of the prizes are not affected in this way.
