About this project
Wibe is the most innovative way for you to workout your entire body — anywhere, anytime. Our specially designed resistance training system is lightweight, ultra-portable, and can be worn on your back when you run, hike, longboard, or do whatever it is that you're passionate about.
We've designed it for people who want to break free from their typical gym routine, live a little, and get some fresh air.
Whether you are just starting to make healthier choices and getting off the couch or you're a serious athlete, Wibe is the perfect solution for maintaining and getting into shape. With over 150 exercises and two different strengths to choose from and more on the way, you can switch up your routine as often as you like and never get bored.

The X is built with the latest materials used by the military and those in the paragliding industry. They are the strongest, most durable materials currently on the market. We've even incorporated a waterproof zipper pocket to keep your phone, cards, and keys safe.
And to keep you safe, we lined the hems with reflective materials for added visibility at night.
The straps are made from high-grade elastic resistance bands. Wibe X is perfect for all fitness levels!
Need a convenient, streamlined way to carry more stuff while you're out? We've created a specially designed backpack that attaches to the Wibe X. It's modular, so you can customize it to fit your needs.
The modular components attach quickly and easily to the ergonomic base that forms to your body and is equipped with high-quality breathable padding — the same kind that the military uses for its gear. All the components are weatherproof and attach securely with our unique fastening system which holds strong when force is applied downward and will only release when you pull upward.

During our search for a lightweight, super portable product that would give us the freedom to exercise anywhere we wanted (especially while we were outside enjoying nature), we couldn't find anything on the market that gave us everything we needed. That's when we decided to take it upon ourselves to create our own. After two years of research and development, what started as a sketch on a napkin, became the Wibe that you see today. We're happy to say that our hard work has paid off, last year the Designers Association of Slovenia recognized Wibe as one of the best design projects of 2016. We didn't stop there. We wanted everyone to be able to get the most out of our product, so we've been working with a number of fitness professionals to develop a series of workout techniques for you to use with Wibe. With over 150 exercises, and a new training video every two weeks, you'll never get bored with your workout. Now we've come to you, Kickstarter, to share it with the world and give you the opportunity to get your hands on Wibe, before it hits the market.
Digitalization - We'll incorporate smart sensors into the Wibe design that will let you get more insight into the progress you are making with your workouts.
Mobile App - The Wibe app will be connect to your smart device to track your training achievements and provide additional training tips and tutorials. Additional Colors - We'd add more color choices, so you can express your unique style. Some ideas are purple, blue, and black.
Children's Sizes - Once we get the adult version of Wibe off the ground, we'd like to begin adding more products to our line of exercise gear. For our second product, we'd like to introduce a version that fits your kids, so they can join in on the fun. (Design ideas are already in the works.)

Risks and challenges
After two years of developing and testing the Wibe prototype we are confident that we have the best design possible made with the best materials. We realize there is always the possibility of setbacks when bringing a product to market and have planned accordingly. We've allowed enough slack in our production and delivery timeline, so incase we hit any bumps in the road there will be plenty of time to resolve any issues that could possibly come up and get Wibe in your hands and on your back on or before our estimated delivery date. During the design and development stage, we worked closely with fitness instructors, selected only the best materials, and tested tons of prototypes. We're confident that our final prototype is the represents the apex of design, durability, and innovation. In fact, we even have an award to prove it. If despite all of our planning there are delays that are unavoidable, keeping you in the loop is of the utmost importance to us. It is our priority to keep communication with you transparent and frequent, after all you are the reason we're able to bring Wibe to life.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
