1 Plasket = 1 lb. Reclaimed Ocean Plastic
Electra was born at the beach in coastal California, which is why we are thrilled to introduce a new product that helps keep our beaches clean. Meet the Plasket. This new bike basket was designed to make two things extremely easy – carrying goods on and off the bike while also reducing our environmental impact. In bright and bold Electra style, the Plasket is arriving to your shops this summer in four beautiful colors – Mint Green, Guava Orange, Lunar Grey and Shell White. Fitting roughly 27 liters of cargo with a 5kg or 11 lbs. weight capacity, this basket can fit about 11 California burritos if we did our math correctly. If you know, you know.
Included with every Plasket is a handlebar bracket also made from recycled materials that fits almost all Electra bikes and e-bikes. The bracket easily snaps onto a 22.2mm handlebar, providing seamless slide-on and slide-off attachment between the bike and the basket. Other bracket sizes are available and sold separately: 31.8mm handlebar bracket, and 10mm and 12mm rack brackets.
Creating this product was a labor of love and we hope it contributes to a cleaner, greener world. Each Plasket is made through an injection molding process in Long Beach, CA, using 1 pound of reclaimed ocean plastic from Oceanworks® – the world’s largest global marketplace for sustainable materials. The Plasket is a simple choice for customers looking for an eco-friendly and affordable cargo solution. MSRP $29.99.
