About

TRAX is a device designed to be assembled at the seat post of any bike allowing it to tow another one. At the same time, the easy hooking and unhooking system allows both riders to change from 2 independent bikes to 2 bikes joint as tandem in less than 1 second.    

TRAX allows you to share the cycling with anybody that you want, regardless of the skill level of either rider.

ESP: TRAX es un dispositivo diseñado para ir montado en el sillín de cualquier bicicleta permitiendo que ésta pueda remolcar a otra. Al mismo tiempo, el fácil sistema de enganche y desenganche permite pasar de dos bicicletas independientes a dos bicicletas juntas en forma de tándem en menos de 1 segundo.

TRAX te permite compartir el ciclismo con cualquier persona que quieras, independientemente del nivel físico de cada ciclista.

Guillem Caballé (born in Barcelona in 1989 and Mechanical Engineer) who is a great passionate of cycling and an outstanding runner of XC Marathon and MTB enduro nationwide, and Yaiza Castro (born in Barcelona in 1994 Barcelona and Tourism graduated) who is a cyclist when she feels like it but a big passionate of the descents.

We are ready to start the production. The longest and most expensive point is the manufacture of the injection molds, and we can ensure that they'll be ready 40 days after the end of the kickstarter campaign.

If we take 10 generously days more for the asembly of all parts, we can ensure that the pieces will be ready to be sent to all collaborators 50 days after the end of kickstarter campaign.

ESP: Estamos a punto para iniciar la producción. La parte mas laboriosa y costosa de ello es la  fabricación de los moldes de inyección, pero podemos asegurar que en un plazo máximo de 40 días desde la finalización de la campaña, los tendremos listos.

Si le sumamos 10 generosos días para el montaje y ensamblaje de los componentes, podemos asegurar que en un plazo maximo de 50 días a contar desde la finalización de la campaña, podremos enviar las piezas a cada uno que haya colaborado con el proyecto!

You don't really have to, it's not a death-life situation… but if you do you will be giving us the chance to start to produce this incredible device that will, definitely, help you to get closer to your loved ones, allowing you to spend more time with them while doing what you love most, which is cycling.

ESP: No tienes por qué hacerlo, no es una situación de vida o muerte… pero si lo haces no estarás dando la oportunidad de empezar a producir éste increíble dispositivo que, definitivamente, te ayudará a estar más cerca de tus seres queridos mientras practicas lo que más te gusta, el ciclismo.

We cannot believe how expensive it gets, but it’s more expensive than we thought. However, it’s a necessary cost. We are deducing 5€ from every real shipping cost to make it less frightening. We hope that it won’t become a handicap to on getting get a TRAX. It would make us very sad.   

ESP: No podemos creer lo caro que es el envio, pero es mas caro de lo que pensabamos. Sin embargo, es un coste necesario. Del coste real de cada envio, hemos decidido asumir aproximadamente 5€, para intentar minimizar su impacto. Esperamos que no suponga un impedimento a la hora de adquirir un TRAX. Seria una auténtica lástima. 

NOTA: Para la gente que esté cerca de BARCELONA y prefiera venir a recogerlo en mano, hemos previsto una opción de recompensa sin envío.

Risks and challenges

We have everything ready to start manufacturing.

We have all the prototypes more than tested. We've been using them more than half a year with non-stop, so we can guarantee that they are more than validated.

The only difference between the prototypes and the final production pieces it's in the process of manufacturing the plastic parts. In the case of prototypes, they have been made in 3D printing, and in the final pieces will be injected in plastic.

The finishes and qualities of the injection processes are unquestionably better than 3D printing, so in terms of risks derived from the quality and reliability of the final product, there is nothing to worry about.

As for manufacturing times, the longest and most expensive process, and therefore the one that will mark the timmings, is the development of the injection molds (Reason why we launch the campaign in Kickstarter).

As for the manufacture of these molds, TRAX has scheduled it to start inmediately the day after the Kickstarter campaign ends, and we can ensure the delivery of the final pieces in a period of between 40 and 50 days since the culmination of the campaign.

ESP: En TRAX mtb lo tenemos todo preparado para iniciar la fabricación.
Tenemos los prototipos más que probados. Llevamos más de medio año utilizándolos sin parar y están por lo tanto más que validados.
La única diferencia entre los prototipos y las piezas de producción definitivas está en el proceso de fabricación de las piezas de plástico, que en el caso de los protos las hemos hecho por impresión 3D y en el caso de las piezas definitivas se harán por inyección de plástico.
Los acabados y calidades de los procesos de inyección, son indiscutiblemente mejores que los de impresión 3D, así que en cuanto a riesgos derivados de la calidad y fiabilidad del producto final, no hay de qué preocuparse.
En cuanto a los tiempos de fabricación, el proceso más largo y más costoso y que por lo tanto es el que va a marcar los timmings, es el de la elaboración de los moldes de inyección (razón por la que lanzamos la campaña en kickstarter).
Por lo que hace a la fabricación de dichos moldes, TRAX mtb lo tenemos todo programado para su inicio inmediato el dia que finalice la campaña de kickstarter y podemos asegurar la entrega de las piezas definitivas y acabadas en un plazo de entre 40 y 50 días desde la culminación de dicha campaña.
