About Us

Solgaard Design was born out of a talented team frustrated with current products on the market.

We strive to create things which meet the needs of many by doing things which most companies won’t. We pour our hearts and souls into the products you hold in your hands today.

We venture to make the world an easier place to live and succeed.

Interlock Logo

Starting with Interlock – the goal to make a more convenient bike lock that you would never forget was realized. The original product received the 2 most prestigious awards in the cycling industry, distribution in 28 countries. In the USA it’s sold on Schwinn bikes in Walmart and also at REI. In the UK it’s available at Halfords, in Canada at MEC – and many other similar stores in other countries. Interlock also won an award for the integration of a lock into a scooter that we did with Micro Scooters.

Family house graphic

Solgaard is my family name from my Mother’s side. It means “Sun farm” it’s actually the name of the family home where my mother grew up in Southern Norway. I spent many of my summers there. The house is still in the family as it has been for 5 generations.

Solar power is what powers all of this amazing planet we call home. Why not find ways to harness that energy and use it to power our other daily activities?

In Scandinavia sunlight is scarce – but amazingly appreciated when you get it. Norway has a culture of working hard all year long- then when the sun is shining in the summertime it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
