For all the design innovations that have made cycling more convenient, there’s no shortage of room for improvement, and Portland Design Works seems focused on closing that gap.

This week, the bike accessory maker churned out two rad concepts that allow riders to make lighting and storage work according to their exact setup. Meet the Cargo Web and Light Nug.

Cargo Web

Available in black, desert, marigold, or red, the Cargo Web ($20 MSRP) expands on a simple and age-old storage concept by providing a flexible tie-down system for cycling storage needs. But here’s the genius: Portland Design Works finishes each Web with 3M reflective material to improve rider safety after sundown.

Light Nug

Available in black or silver, the Light Nug ($15 MSRP) acts as a mount for any handlebar compatible headlight. By attaching to any standard eyelet on the bike or major accessories like a bike basket, the Nug frees up visual and physical space on the handlebar. It also allows riders to sidestep attachments or cargo that might otherwise obstruct the light beam.
