A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Story behind OPN’BAR was born during a hot July afternoon in the deep heart of Pilat Regional Park (France), well known for its technical single tracks on MTB and beautiful twisty road for asphalt lovers.
During this choking hot day, the idea was born, innovative and revolutionary, a new way to enjoy a bottle with a sealed cap no matter where your bike would lead you. We just wanted to drink a good beer without the struggle of opening it and most of the time losing the precious liquid ! The solution was simple yet sweetly amazing: we needed a bottle opener on our handlebar. Few months passed as the team worked using technical knowledge and expert skills to create the perfect bottle opener which would fit any bars. After weeks of R&D, multiple attempts and fails in design, we almost lost our minds, but we finally made it.
The Team worked then on the cosmetics and polish creating a full range of anodised colors and engraved writings for a unique yet cool product. Today we are launching the project on kick-starter as we need your help, the riders are calling the riding community !
We have it ready but will need your help to make sure this cool idea is produced with the highest standard of quality while staying within a good and low price range. Back us now!

The OPN’BAR is our first Kickstarter campaign yet we have experience in production as we are manufacturing top quality bicycle gear boxes as well as the bikes. We have delivered products to many countries and received outstanding feedbacks on our previews products. Check out Cavalerie-Bike and Effigear to find out more about us. The experience and expertise we've gained to this day will guaranty you a timely delivery and a top quality product. We already faced multiple unexpected situation and always plan for the worse.
To further ensure quality and timely delivery on each product, we will have our our own in house production line and will be manufacturing every OPN'BAR product with the most skilled line producers we have.
We have spent months designing, testing, and refining the design. We've already selected the production process and started some basic tooling. The samples you see in the photos and videos work great and look fantastic, so we won't need to waste time tweaking the design.
Now, every project carries its own risks and challenges. We will be fully dedicated to treat each of your orders as our own. The most common risks are potential delays in obtaining raw materials, tooling trouble, packaging, and shipping. While we factored this in our planning and reduced these variables as much as possible, they can never be completely eliminated.
We feel our experience and familiarity with our suppliers and the product development process we have in place gives us a unique skill set in handling unexpected problems. We will make sure to give frequent updates about progress so you'll always be informed about the status of the project. We think you'll find our transparency to be a breath of fresh air.
