About

Charlie & Sam

Who are we?

Affinity Altitude, founded in 2015 by Olympian Charlie Grice, is an endurance performance company, specialising in providing the latest generation of altitude simulation equipment to elite athletes and the wider endurance sport community. We have a combined background of over 30 years of direct involvement within the endurance sport community; therefore, we understand the importance of listening to athletes, maximising performance and product satisfaction.


How does it work?

Altitude simulation technology replicates the lower oxygen environment, found high up in the mountains, contained within a tent that can be slept in (or through a mask when exercising). This enhances the body’s ability to carry oxygen, by stimulating an increase the production of red blood cells. This technology has been reliably shown to improve the endurance performance of not just runners, cyclists and triathletes, but also swimmers, rowers, boxers, walkers, mountaineers and team sport athletes.

Why choose Affinity Altitude? 

Our systems have been used and endorsed by multiple Olympic Gold Medallists, world-class triathletes, Tour de France cyclists and Formula 1 drivers. Alongside these sporting giants, numerous more international level athletes and organisations from around the world have also become a core part of the Affinity Altitude team. However, we are always looking to improve our athlete experience. After an extensive market analysis with our athlete ambassadors and the endurance sport community - we identified three key factors: weight, noise and price.

Once we found this out, we got to work!

The Tent: Through collaboration with Sir Mo Farah, Alistair Brownlee and a leading tent manufacturer in the UK, we redesigned our tents so that they are now the lightest, most compact and portable products on the market! This has been achieved by using light and breathable tent materials, alongside developing a unique air flow system through the framework of the tent itself. This creates a more even and continuous flow of air into the tent, further minimising noise and enhancing sleep quality.

 The Generator: Following extensive testing, we have changed our generators to a quieter (40-45 dB compared to an industry standard of 50dB) and lower flow system. We have found that these systems still reduce the oxygen concentration in the tent in as little as 8 minutes for "The Farah" tent and 20 minutes for "The Brownlee" tent. These generators are capable of simulating the equivalent of 4400m altitude in our tents.

With this latest release, we aim to revolutionise the altitude simulation and endurance performance market with our brand new tent designs – providing the highest performance generator technology alongside our novel tents designed and handmade in the UK. Through minimising the weight and changing the materials of our tents, using quieter generators and a creating novel efficient air flow system - we are able to offer significantly cheaper altitude systems compared to all of our competitors.

We are excited to launch our new systems on Kickstarter for £1399 (limited time only). This is 1/2 the cost of the average market price of an altitude sleeping system (£2800).

KEY - Alongside all electronic components having received a CE marking, all aspects of these new altitude systems have been rigorously safety tested by elite physiologists in UK sports performance laboratories. They have also been used by numerous of our athlete ambassadors and by the British Athletics team at their official training camp in preparation for the 2019 World Athletics Championships.

Risks and challenges

What separates our campaign from some others, is that our new product range is complete, with no further research or development required for this particular launch. In addition to this, we have tried and tested the altitude systems with numerous athletes, all of whom have given their feedback to help us refine the tents even further!

We will do everything we can to ensure that your products arrive on time, however are aware that there is always a risk of factors arising that are outside of our control. We have done our due diligence to understand and minimise these.

Finally, during the Kickstarter and post-Kickstarter period we will be in constant communication with you, the backers.
