About

Ellaspede is a custom motorcycle, apparel and accessories brand with a background in Industrial, furniture, automotive and graphic design.

We grew tired of balancing helmets on handlebars or tables with heavy jackets strewn across seats and benches, so we developed the Helmet and Gear Hanger!

Hang on the front or back of a door or screw mount it on the wall in your garage or home. This sturdy hanger keeps all you gear off the ground and in one convenient location.

Pledge now and when we reach our goal we'll send all supporters a confirmation email of their products just in time for Christmas! The perfect gift for the riding or driving enthusiast, get one for you and one for a buddy this festive season.

What stage are we at?

We've already invested and produced the first version of the Helmet and Gear Hanger which we’ve had some friends of ours testing at home and in our shop. Now we need your help to produce the tooling for the pressed and machined version two.

We’ve used our experience in industrial and furniture design to spec up the perfect hanger for the modern home, man cave or work shop. Version two is aesthetically designed with more functionality than the first, whilst packing down further to allow for cheaper shipping to you.

Why we need your help

The funds from this campaign will go directly to purchasing the expensive tooling required for a pressed metal product. It will also cover the steel metal, timber, powder coating and packaging required to put these products together and get them out to you, our supporters.

With your Kickstarter help we’re hoping to produce one of the most useful products for the riding or driving enthusiast, keeping your gear organised and your helmets damage free.

What do you get?

What's next?

With your help, here’s how we’re going to get your Helmet and Gear Hanger from idea to finished product:

November/December 2014: Launch on Kickstarter, share with our friends, you share with your friends, lets make this happen

Late December 2014: Kickstarter finshed, pledge goal reached, pledge product confirmations emailed out in time for Christmas gift giving

January 2015: Send CAD data to manufacturers, place the tooling orders, get excited

Early February 2015: Receive prototypes, complete final tolerance checking and product testing, sign off on full product run manufacturing, helmets around the world hold their breath for a safe place to hang

Late February 2015: Manufacturing starts for products and packaging, your jacket and gloves prepare to move from the slums to an organisational penthouse

March 2015: Manufacturing finishes, products packed and sent to shipping agent, the chaos of unorganised gear is coming to a close

April 2015: Pledges fulfilled, products and gear sent out to all supporters, helmets and gear saved from daily balancing acts and bench spaces

1st May 2015: We intend for all supporters to have received products by this date, virtual high fives all around

Risks and challenges

Through our industrial design experience we have brought a number of other products to market, but for this project we need you on board!

We’ve already sourced the appropriate suppliers to partner with for tooling and manufacturing; many of whom we’ve previously worked with and can vouch for their high levels of product fit and finish. A shipping agent has also been arranged to ensure that each of our supporters gets their gear or products as soon as possible and in perfect condition.

In the timeline outlined above we've also specified time for testing the first products out of our new tool to ensure they meet all of our requirements and tolerances. This will ensure we're able to provide each backer with a proven and polished product when we fulfil all of our pledges.
