SARTHI / lumbar support accessory

SARTHI
SARTHI

A fully adjustable addon that gives the cyclist a platform to lean his torso on, in event of extreme local body strain during long distance rides, hence eliminating the need to pause for rest; so no delays.
Aptly named after the Hindu diety, who is a true companion & source of motivation in times of doubt and pain; SARTHI reduces the rider's strain by taking the load off from the lower back, shoulder & wrists.
2 Degree of Freedom allows usage in any riding position. Ergonomic design, fits on any frame. On-the-go single hand operation. Can be used as pannier or to carry a pillion rider at front or back.
Adds miles and smiles to cycling!
