We feel OLAF

Dear backers,

it's been a while but hey here we are.
Let's start with our URBAN MODEL.

That's what you can expect when OLAF finally arrives to your home in the following weeks.
We have already explained everything that was modified, however let's go through it.

We love wood as you can see below! Reinforced beech laminated main board and already mentioned additional wooden trunk multifunctional board.

All Kickstarter backers will get additional straps to attach your own backpack, grocery bag etc.

One of our backers asked if he can carry his girlfriend on that front board – well, it's definitely possible in terms of weight and durability (although not advised due to safety reasons).

Improved rear wheel brake
What we also improved by going with twin rear wheels is a rear wheel brake that is much better now since it has better grip while having more surface.

Still, when driving in wet weather, braking is much worse than when the weather is dry. Please keep that in mind.

As you probably already know, we are late due to all modifications of our backpack (all basic parts, bottom and back were gone back to the drawing board). We are pleased now (actually Bostjan never is) and we are sure you will find our backpack handy & cool.

BUSINESS MODEL

Hey, do you recognize the green machine behind OLAF? It's FlyKly.

Handle extension
We succeeded in making it 2 inch longer – now also taller backers won't have problems while riding around.

Complete case modifications
We changed the interior and exterior of our case. Exterior is much more robust now making it "bulletproof" to luggage handling by even the worst airport luggage staff. Also front soft part is improved with more robust soft material. Interior is packed with neatly organized compartments that will help you organize your mobile office.

 Psst ... It isn't officially out yet, but we have a silver winner here:). More news coming soon.

CUSTOMIZATION RESULTS

We were truly surprised by your imagination and great response. Some of you sent us really nice pieces of art & design and we are happy to make your OLAF one of a kind.

Have a look at how we engraved your name, logo etc. on a wooden board (or business aluminum board).

LUGGAGE TAGS


Being in love with natural materials - leather it is.

How it's made (let's bake some cookies again:)

Carefully chosen leather is cut manually by hydraulic press and special cutters – pretty much the same procedure as when your mother makes cookies with cookie cutters. We just need a greater force.

When both halves are cut, we (actually Bostjan's father-in-law does that – we told you, it's a family business) sew them together.

***IMPORTANT*** - shipping costs (for non EU&US backers)

Some of you forgot to add shipping costs to your pledge amount. We will send a PayPal invoice for your shipping costs (shipping is free for EU & US backers). Please help us ship OLAFs to you ASAP.

We'll ship from Slovenia/EU and we'll start shipping OLAF Urban platforms THIS WEEK. With complete products in April.

 We feel OLAF and you?
