“We are very pleased with the arrival of Patrick”, says Marc Roelofsen, CEO of Basil. “He has a wealth of experience in bags and baskets, both in product, sourcing and sales know-how, but his last years of experience as a retailer are also very valuable. Patrick is going to help us make Basil and MIK even more attractive for all stakeholders with whom we like to work together. “

Ebbeling: “I did not want to miss the retail experience, that was very instructive for me personally and also very  nice to be able to work with such a nice team. But I have noticed that my heart lies in creating successful products. I am very happy that I can now fully capitalize on my passion at Basil and MIK and that I can contribute to the growth of both brands “.

B-Safe Nordlicht commuter bag

One of their flagship products this year is the B-safe Nordlicht commuter bag. This bag is ideal for the modern day commuter, whether it's by e-bike or any other last-mile mobility trend. And this is why. To guard against theft, there’s an invisible concealed zipper and hidden compartments. There’s also a USB charging port for charging your smartphone. For additional comfort when wearing the backpack, it has padded shoulder straps and a padded back.

You’ll also find plenty of handy storage pockets (for example, for your travel card) and useful places to attach items like your bike helmet or a rolled-up shopping bag. A waterproof rain cover stops your belongings from getting wet. The bag incorporates LED lights (Nordlicht Technology) so you can be seen in the dark. Finally, don’t forget how easy it is to attach the bag to your bicycle carrier rack. 15.6” laptops and iPads will fit into the B-Safe Backpack. It’s graphite black in colour and the ideal fit for your e-bike, thanks to the Hook-On system, including reflectors on all sides.
