About

OUR STORY.

One evening, a group of skateboarders were riding their bikes to the nearest bottle shop after closing down a session. On the way, their boards annoyingly continued to slide off their bicycle racks and bang on the ground. This bang was the dawn of the T-Rack.

After coming up with the idea, we immediately set to work on developing a prototype. Now, to further improve and refine the T-Rack, we need your help. By becoming an official backer, you have the opportunity to be one of the first to receive this new and ingenious little invention. Together with your support, we look forward to turning this unique concept into reality.

 

 

 

THE POSSIBILITIES.

Use the T-Rack to swiftly and carelessly, transport your board to any skate-spot of choice to then have a fun and relaxed session with your friends. Once the skating is done, celebrate a great day by cracking open a few cold beers for you and your homies, by using the T-Rack as a bottle opener.

The utilisation of the T-Rack is of course not only confined to skateboards but far more also ecompasses items such as tennis rackets, skis, broomsticks, micro-scooters hockey sticks and even two-handed swords. The incapacity of hauling unwieldy belongings by bike, is now a thing of the past.

THE DESIGN.

The T-Rack’s design allows it to naturally adapt to any type of bicycle rack and hence will not compromise the style of your two-wheeled sweetheart. The main focus regarding design is easy and uncomplicated usability.

The simple, one handed operation of the T-Rack allows for an unbelievably straightforward and uncomplicated appliance, making the T-Rack your perfect companion for everyday travelling. To guarantee durability, we just use high quality materials like 6061 aircraft grade aluminium and stainless steel.

Risks and challenges

We developed the T-Rack to last. It withstood thorough and vigorous testing by us. After reaching our funding target, carefully selected producers, which were tested in advance, will produce your T-rack. At the moment we are not able to determine an exact production date, since each production depends on a multitude of factors. However, since prototype production was delivered on time, we are confident that planned production dates will also be kept. In the unlikely case that something does goes wrong, we incorporated a security time-buffer.
