AIRSUPPLY™ is the perfect solution for everyone who simply enjoys riding, whether if it's to get around, spend time with your family, stay fit, experience nature … the list of reasons why people enjoy riding is endless. With AIRSUPPLY™ you will never get stuck at home again, searching for a pump or struggling with an annoying hand or bulky floor pump. Not to mention, what do you do when you’re out on an amazing ride and you have to cut it short because you need air!

The pump is integrated right into your existing bicycle and goes wherever you go - no more need for inconvenient floor pumps, awkward hand pumps, or electric pumps that require regular visits to an air compressor for refills.

Risks and challenges
AIRSUPPLY™ is seven years, hundreds of prototypes, and tens of thousands of traveled miles in the making. The product has been tested daily for nearly five years during this developmental process, and from personal experience we can confidently say that the product works perfectly every time you ride your bicycle. In addition, the product has been formally tested to the European Union’s EN-M standard, the world’s most exacting standard for bicycle components, a process that included pumping a single AIRSUPPLY™ unit up and down over one hundred thousand times without failure.
From a manufacturing perspective, we’ve spent the last few years developing relationships with domain experts in manufacturing and supply chain management, and added team members and advisors experienced with the production and launch of consumer products to help tackle the challenges ahead. In addition, we’ve made multiple trips to China and Taiwan in order to meet with many of the world’s premier factories for the manufacture of bicycle components and develop the relationships and working experience necessary to scale up production. These manufacturers have been active participants in the product’s development and prototyping, and are committed to its long-term success. We’ve also developed working relationships with both US and international logistics providers who will help to make sure that the product arrives at your doorstep as quickly and safely as possible.
Despite taking all of these steps, we’re bound to encounter unforeseen obstacles and challenges along the way, but believe in the capabilities of our dynamic team to solve them as quickly as possible. We also promise to keep you well-informed throughout the entire process as we first bring AIRSUPPLY™ to you, and then continue towards our goal of making an AIRSUPPLY™ available in each and every one of the nearly 150 million bicycles manufactured worldwide each year.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
