Whoever you are, whatever your fitness level, Clustas is the best exercise companion you will ever find. Whether you are feeling like a vigorous Rucking workout or just a light stroll around the block, Clustas can be easily adapted to your moods and needs. Clustas is the ultimate soft portable fitness solution in a backpack.
Clustas is not just a weighted Rucksack for Ruckers although it is perfect for that. It is a whole gym inside a rucksack that can be taken apart and used as dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls and sandbags. Forget about heavy slabs of metal to weigh you down. The backpack called a ClustaRuck has handles everywhere you need them for lifts and maneuvers and when you take out the ClustaBells full of balls, you can lie on top of the ClustaRuck to do your bench presses. It is sooo versatile.
The Clustaballs, each weighing 1 kilo (2.2Lbs), are pliable magnetic weights and fit perfectly in your hand like a stressball so you can do all your mobility and coordination exercises while building your endurance at the same time. And your fitness exercise class will never feel the same.
Grandma and kids can join in because Clustas are safe and fun for everyone. Clustas are easy to transport and store. They come with you to the park, beach or even the office and were designed to be compatible with treadmill and vibrating plate machines.
I personally like juggling with Clustas. This is the ultimate in bringing fitness and coordination together and is also great for collective fitness games for kids of all ages. Several older people who have tried Clustas prefer the feel of them to the small dumbbells. Clustas fit the shape of the hand better than a straight handle and encourages the normal ergonomics of the clasping motion.
No more feeling intimidated by using weights. Clustas are soft and will not hurt you if you drop them on your foot or accidentally bump your head or leg. This means that some exercises that were formerly unsafe can now be enjoyed without fear of getting hurt.
And no more waiting for someone to finish using the weight you want. With Clustas you just add or subtract balls to make any weight you need. Even if you do prefer an actual dumbbell for a certain exercise, you can add a Clustaball or two by magnetizing them to the end.
They are also compatible with other machines like the treadmill and they are much easier to get rid of without interrupting your workout on a vibrating plate machine. Just toss them on the floor or magnetize them to the side of the machine for using again.
Transport is a cinch with Clustas. I recently observed a high school weightlifting club carrying all the normal gym equipment out to the football field from the gym so they could work out in the open air. They were walking past cars and people up sidewalks and around corners where any number of accidents could have occurred.
So, if gyms decide to make the investment into a safe versatile alternative to the range of products that are normally used they will find there is more open space to accommodate a wider range of activities without having to carry around bulky weights when you want to work out. Clustas fit into a backpack and can go where you want them to go fitting easily into the trunk of any car.
No more feeling like a dumbbell. Get Clustas, the undumbbell!

Allocation of Funds
Rollin in China
Rollin went to China to source suppliers to make and ship all the Clusta products. Here is a picture of his time in Shanghai.
Shipping Clustas abroad
Clustas is intending to ship products internationally if there is enough interest. Please leave a message under comments and let us know if you live abroad and would like to be informed when we get that far.

Risks and challenges
We have to ensure that all of our products are manufactured to the highest level in order to ensure your safety and the longevity of your Clustas; we also need to keep Clustas affordable.
We are pleased to have a supplier in China, whom we visited, and with whom we have established a trustworthy relationship, that can produce the whole range of Clustas. While this keeps the cost down for you, the main risks are: quality control; cost of shipping; and a minimum order requirement.
Producing ClustaBells, ClustaBelts and ClustaRucks is fairly straight-forward, and inexpensive. It's also pretty light to ship these products internationally from China. We'll continue to work with our supplier in China on these products. ClustaBalls, however, will also be produced in the USA to support American manufacturing especially for government contracts.
So, in line with our commitment to bolster business in Vermont, USA, we are in talks with a Vermont-based company that can manufacturer great quality ClustaBalls and fulfil all Clustas orders from its warehouse.
Transportation & Fulfilment
We have decided to have our bags and belts produced in China, and shipped to a factory near Clustas's home in Vermont that will make our ClustaBalls. Then, this factory will ship out all of the Clustas orders from there.
Minimum Order Requirement
The company in China requires a large minimum order, which may be greater than our Kickstarter Campaign demand. That is a risk we are not willing to take.
The Vermont-based company does not impose a minimum order. That makes things a lot easier and lightens our load.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
