About

Thank you for taking time to consider our project “A Cooler Way to Ride.” This journey has been fun, fascinating and challenging. We’ve met great people, received a lot of encouraging words, and have helped a lot of people enjoy bicycling more when it’s hot. 

For years cyclists have faced to some degree the challenge of riding a bike during hot weather. Most strategies to beat the heat are really just avoidance [only ride in the morning or evening] or dealing with the consequences of the heat [dehydration]. Sure there are a few variations on these themes like ice socks, pre-cooling with cooling vests, or expensive high tech jerseys that “wick-away” your sweat that facilitates evaporative cooling. They do help, but none of these are as effective, efficient or practical as Spruzza. We absolutely guarantee this! 

If you’re a data driven athlete or cyclist of any stripe, you probably love numbers, so do we. The most encouraging number for us is ZERO. That’s the number of people who use or have tried Spruzza and tell us it doesn’t cool them down. There’s an interesting coincidence here. ZERO is also the approximate number of people who will buy a car today without air-conditioning. Why, because we not only like our cars for transportation we like to be comfortable getting somewhere. If we are going to get more people on bikes and on bikes more often we need the same paradigm for bikes that we have for automobiles. EASY, SAFE and COMFORTABLE. 

Spruzza will keep you more comfortable in the heat. We stand behind this. This is our first step on the path to “air-condition” the bike. There are more designs and delivery systems in the pipe line. Your support at any level can help us demonstrate the potential for changing the cycling experience in the heat, drive demand which in turn will drive innovation.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges associated with the project completion would only be putting the orders together. Currently we have all of the inventory in place and are ready to ship as needed. We specified a 60 day window just incase demand was more then we expected. Our manufacturers are already paid so we just have to tell them the quantity and they will have them out within a couple weeks. BTW our manufacturer is 15 minutes from our homes.
