FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe for Golf

 The FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe is two shoes in one. Until ball impact it is a very normal golf shoe and after the ball impact it becomes a special product which protects the golfers at all levels and also kids against the unnatural motions.

 By using the FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe playing Golf during tournaments or on the driving range your natural rotation after hitting the ball will not be interrupted. Therefore you will be more fresh and not get tired.

 Playing with the FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe, you promote the performance of athletes and you are able to get a direct feedback about the balance.

 How Does it Work?

Between the sole and the shoe a coil spring helps that the sole is fixed on the ground and the shoe continues the natural rotation of the swing. Regular shoe sole techniques with spikes or pimples interrupt the rotation of the body. This will be because of the centripetal power of a swing.  

Because the athlete is able to hold his body weight in balance the stance is very stable. Only the rotation of this magic shoe will increase the chance up to 77 degree for more rotational space.

 What are the Key Advantages?

 With the Turning Shoe you will be able to promote the natural rotation. The Turning Shoe is also a training tool for balance control.

 eDrive Plus App

We want to give the consumers of the Turning Shoe eDrive Plus the possibility to get the data "while" using the FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe by the numbers of accounting lbs-ft one will save using the Turning Shoe.

  The results give you an idea that you have no free release during your sport life without the Turning Shoe. Prof. Dr. Wank measured up to 99% torque reduction. It results in a 100% natural rotation.

 Free-Release Turning Shoe for Baseball

The FREE-RELEASE Turning Shoe and the FREE-RELEASE Turning-Shoe eDrive also works for baseball for hitters and pitchers. They are able to improve their performance and swing biomechanics. This means that with the Turning Shoe the professional hitter would be able to improve his ball speed up to more than 10%. Amateur hitters would be able to improve the hitting speed up to 30%. Those are the results we measure. The second advantage for hitters is that the precision of the ball flight will be higher. The pitcher is also able to improve his throwing biomechanics. Therefore, he will be able to throw the ball with more speed and precision. Also, for both the resistance and torsion inside the body will be more natural.

 Free-Release Turning Shoe for Soccer

The Turning Shoe soccer allows the natural motion for soccer athletes. (training only)

 Free-Release Turning Working Shoe

The FREE-RELEASE Turning-Shoe and the FREE-RELEASE Turning-Shoe eDrive works also for different business categories for all situations where people have to turn their body. The limited flexibility of the horizontal foot-, hip- and shoulder axis will create an interruption of the natural rotation. Therefore the Turning-Shoe will enable natural motions with the benefit that the users can at the end of the day be more fresh and relaxed. The different business categories could be for example automotive production or sales persons who have to turn their body to grab products behind the front desk.

The Turning-Shoe will improve the difficulties during working processes and improve the lifestyle.

If these working people will use the Turning Shoe eDrive they are able to count the effort of the minimized rotations at the end of the day.

 What Avid Free-Release Fans Say:

 The Story Behind

We want to give the best to the athletes and people. Therefore we have to do a lot of tests and studies together with science partners. The results are unbelievably good. Also we test the Turning Shoe by ourselves. It was developed because Frank was tired of the torque playing golf. Today after playing 18 hole or hitting strokes he is always fresh.

You have to know after playing 21 days of golf we would have approximately 3000 swings with total of more than 3,000,000 Nm of torsion. This is a huge stress for the human body.

Using the Turning Shoe for 3000 swings you are able to reduce the stress up to 30.000 Nm. This means 99% less stress. This is an unbelievably great result.

In other words you are more fresh using the Turning Shoe in all situations.

We have the luck that we received the international patents. They are functional patents and therefore we have a bright chance of a long term functional success.

We have done all marketing tests and we know that we have to sell our products direct to the clients by online shopping, TV, etc. This was decided because we feel that our consumers have very good understanding of the benefits of the FREE-RELEASE Turning-Shoe and we will be able to offer them a better service and price.

We have payed all development costs by our self. Therefore we do not have any debts with the bank.

Our product focus is customer benefits and satisfaction.

The Turning Shoe is a solution for friends, because the UGO Team do care actively about their consumers. They are at the beginning of all we do in the focus. We ask:" what do our consumer wish?" or "what do they think?" "How are we able to improve their lifestyle today and tomorrow?"

To follow this guidelines we need you pledging on our project. Now with the Turning Shoe eDrive is also an optional "Sensor Counter System" on it.

With this Turning Shoe eDrive our consumer will be satisfied and aware doing something active which is biomechanical State of the Art.

 we need your help. Thank you for your support.

Rewards

Risks and challenges

"We had to minimize the risks of business-processes, logistic, production, quality, marketing and sales-strategy.

Normally I am really dynamic - however I learned that we have to do this projects to be sure and confident - now we are prepared - however it follows our No. 1 Priority "Consumer - Satisfaction first".
Frank Drollinger, Member of the UGO Core Team

We minimize all risks because we have long term experience of entrepreneurship.

Therefore we have done long term material tests with some improvements but very successful

We have done a lot of customer tests. And we want to know from them their feedback.

We have done a lot of scientific measurements about the reduction of torque.

We have done some sales and market test to learn how the market works.

We have done two production tests to learn which points we have to improve.

If there would be product problems we are able the handle within 2 day.

Our challenge will be to connect consumer problems with our solutions.

This isn't our first rodeo. We have been producing shoes and working with factories in Indonesia for some time now. We are familiar with the delays that can unexpectedly pop up, whether they be due to production, shipping or customs.

The estimated delivery date for Turning Shoe eDrive Plus is October 2015, but please keep in mind that this is an informed guess.

Also note that due to logistical restrictions in different regions, some backers may receive their pledge rewards before others.

We will be doing our utmost to avoid these situations and, in the unlikely event that we are unable to deliver theTurning Shoe eDrive Plus, we will be refunding pledges in full.

Due to the fact that the Turning Shoe eDrive Plus is 95 % complete as we head into this campaign, and that we have already signed agreements with many of those in charge of production, delivery and distribution, we have no reason to suspect that this eventuality will ever occur.
