CloseTheGap launches CoverMyBack, their follow up to HideMyBell

CloseTheGap, the innovative Dutch design brand founded by ex-elite rider and tech editor Mathijs Wagenaar, introduces a new innovative product that, like the HideMyBell mount, does something unique.

With a universal mount system riders can choose to use only the mudguard, only the light or both in combination. It also fits with seatpacks.

The flexible system allows the light to sit above or below the mudguard according to rider preference and bike setup. This seems like quite a good idea in winter conditions when your rear light can easily be covered with road (or farm) muck. I’m wondering if an MTB version will follow?

It joins the companies other product, HideMyBell, as well as selection of softgoods. The range is sold consumer direct from the website The brand also sells through stores and/or distributors in the US, Australia, Japan, Italy, Spain, Norway, Germany and Austria.

It doesn’t look like there is a UK Distributor. Yet?
