ACCESSIBILITY IN THE OUTDOORS Not long before I began officially working at Orucase, I product tested a prototype Top Tube Bag with the magnetic zipper. Being a transradial amputee, my feedback was most relevant because I do everything with one hand: gear shifter with my thumb, front brake with my pointer finger, rear brake with my middle finger, and death gripping down hills following the other Orucase employees / (ex-)pro cyclists with the two remaining fingers. Using the grip-shift-actuated dropper post, feeding and hydration requires my full hand’s attention, leaving me no choice but to hold the wheels straight with no hand. As you can imagine, regular zippers hinder me and could be arguably a safety hazard for a paracyclist like me. Luckily for everyone else, especially those with two hands, we perfected the most accessible accessory by first prioritizing those with the greatest needs first. After officially becoming an employee, we continue to create accessible products like the popular Design Lab Framebags.
