Laura Cristina commented on NIKE Grind X Circular Cities

Hi Carla,

Congrats on this excellent idea! I am a business student from Switzerland living in Sydney and an avid bike lover - unfortunately, I haven't cycled a single day here in Australia since the main roads I'd use are just too cramped and dangerous. Your products would certainly make cycling safer here!

On another note, I was wondering how resistant the bike lane delineators e.g. are? How do you make sure that they resist the weather and don't need to be replaced too often? Also, would you reuse 'broken' material and reintroduce it into the circle?

Congrats again and good luck for the rest of the challenge!

Hi Anton,

I really love your idea to reinvent that product category and modernise it. I work in an open office and it can get really loud sometimes but headphones with music on are not always what I want, so I would really appreciate your new concept. Besides, they look cool and fancy to wear.

One question for you:
Are you planning to make one version of the product or different ones for the different targets? What are your plans regarding that?

This product could also be great for travellers (business, students, etc.) who want to be undisturbed but still able to concentrate on their tasks without headphones (music) on.

Good luck!
