Want to have a BBQ in the city?

Knister is the perfect solution for you

The solution

KNISTER is the first extendible charcoal grill you can transport by bike. Simply Hook it to the handlebars of your bike and ride to your favourite park. When you arrive, you can extend it to the double size.


Transport the Knister by bike

The Knister Grill fits all common handlebars. The time is over when you balanced kettle grills on the the rack of your bike in a dangerous way. 

Transport coal and food inside

No need for carrying coal, food or all the other things you need for a BBQ. Just put everything inside the Knister Grill and let's go!

Extend it to double its size

Extend Knister to a larger grill size. Leave the BBQ small if you are grilling with 2-3 friends. Extend it when you have a BBQ with 8-9 friends. Knister fits to every situation - no matter how big the group is. During the transport by bike, the two sliders are held together by the stainless steel grill.

Sustainable & easy to clean
Put the grill into the dishwasher. The rest of the BBQ is just out of flat surfaces. So no hidden corners or screws that are difficult to clean. The premium model is completely out or stainless steel and is 100% dishwasher proof.

What is the problem?

You know it : Whether on the Isar in Munich or at the beach in California  - Barbecuing is always a stressful to organize: All the equipment like coal, food, plates, ketchup and of course the grill, must be transported somehow. And if you want to go by bike, its even more difficult. In addition, the grill area is often too small for a larger group and eating at the same time is difficult. The courgettes slip through the grate and vegetarians want their own "corner". Cleaning the grill afterwards is also a dirty matter. Does that sound familiar? It's time to change that!

You love biking?

Hook the Knister Grill to the handlebars of your bike and let's go!

How does the bike transport work?

Hook the Knister Grill to the front of your handlebars. With two thumbscrews, you can arrange the ideal distance for the Knister Grill to hang firmly and securely on your handlebars. The attachment is not permanent and can be removed from the bike within seconds.

Fits to all common handlebars

We spent a lot of time developing the ideal, non-permanent attachment, so that it fits all standard handlebars. If Knister really does not fit on your bike, we will make a suitable hook for you for free or you will get your money back.

Don't grill during you ride the bike!

Please do not grill while riding the bike! You participate in the traffic and it is very dangerous to ride around with 800 ° C hot coals on the bike paths of the city. So: Pack your Knister Grill full of coal and food, drive to the lake, unhook it from the handlebars and then start heating it up. Depending on how your bicycle handlebar look like, the grill can also come in contact with plastic brake cables. Logically, these will melt when you use your grill while riding.

You want to have a BBQ with many friends?

No problem! The Knister Grill can be extended to a larger grill size.

Extendable grill size?

Yes! Knister Grill is extendable. Leave it small when you grill with 2 or 3 friends and extend it when you're in a larger group. The Knister Grill always fits perfectly to every situation and offers space for up to 9 people. Whenit is extended, the grill area is 49x23cm . In the small version it is 28x23cm.

Der perfekte Rost!

Unser Grillrost ist in zwei Zonen unterteilt: Die eine ist perfekt für Fleisch und die andere wurde für Gemüse und kleineres Grillgut optimiert. So fällt Dir nichts mehr in die Kohle! Beim Transport werden die beiden Roste übereinander geschoben, sodass der Grill geschlossen ist und nichts heraus fallen kann!
