The Zilfer Story

Our Story


Dan Bessant Zilfer Cycling Wallet

Zilfer was founded in Sydney by Dan Bessant in 2016. With his passion for cycling and the outdoors, the idea for a practical yet stylish cycling phone wallet was born.

Like many avid cyclists, Dan was stuck with a feeble sandwich bag to protect his things when riding and then swapping all the contents back to his everyday wallet after every riding. 

Cycling everyday, Dan first tried to use the sandwich bag but working in a professional environment meant that it not appropriate - especially at a business lunch when it was time to pay the bill.

There had to be a better way!

Unable to find a wallet that suited his style while also delivering the protection required outdoors, he decided to design one. It needed to be functional and pleasing on the eye so it could be used in everyday from the executive boardroom to a grocery shopping to long rides on the bike. 

The Zilfer cycling wallet is now available and the reception from cyclists in Australia and across the globe has been fantastic. With a limited production, the mission is to reach bike riders who have experienced the same frustration and show them the Zilfer solution. The wallet was designed with 'active-proof' technology for the outdoors and is not just limited to cycling, rather is well suited to people with active lifestyles.
