Dress guard

Batavus asked Curana to design and engineer a dress guard fiiting with their brand identity.

Based on the overall design look and feel, We developed a solution that was faregoing different than what was existing at that moment. The shape was complex, with convex and concave shapes, but nevertheless it was stylish and clean. Especially the way to deal with the fixation to the seat stay tube was unique, as it was adjustable depending on the frame dimensions, but nevertheless it was invisble by use of a coloured part, which colour could be adapted to the colour of other components or details in the frame decals. This covered fixation was meanwhile copied by several other brands.

The dress guard was rewarded with a Eurobike Award in 2008.
