What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Stompump is a lightweight, portable footpump.

All cyclists need a reliable pump. Road, MTB, CX, Gravel, E-bikes. One universal, we all suffer flats. A dependable and user-friendly pump is the most critical piece of equipment a cyclist can carry.

Introducing The Stompump, foot pump.

Flat tires happen. The Stompump is the first compact, foot actuated inflator. The Stompump stows neatly on your bike, your car, motorcycle, or backpack. This is why we've created the Stompump, so you can easily and safely inflate a flat tire. No need to fiddle with Co2 inflators or unreliable and clumsy frame pumps.

Do you Need a Stompump?

Every cyclist will experience a flat tire. Traditional hand pumps, CO2 inflators, and mini pumps are cumbersome, require a lot of strength and energy to use, and most importantly do not work well. The Stompump can inflate a tire 3 times faster than a hand-pump, using far less energy. It’s also not as risky as a Co2 inflator, or as challenging as a mini pump. Do you want to struggle with 'the get-it-perfect or you’re stuck' scenario with a Co2 cartridge?

The Stompump was born 2 years ago after a miserable experience on the side of the road in a freezing rainstorm fighting a mini-pump for 20 minutes to fix a flat. We needed a solution. Since that time, we have spent countless hours perfecting a pump for all types of cyclists.

Many cyclists are using higher volume tires, from mountain bikes and fat bikes to gravel-road bikes and even traditional road bikes. The higher volume/larger tires means better ride quality, traction and efficiency. With these larger tires comes the need for a pump that is optimized for pumping more air per compression. This is where The Stompump excels! The Stompump also works with many other inflation applications.

The Stompump includes some features that most portable pumps do not. We've incorporated a cylindrical storage compartment, 22.2mm x 53mm. very handy for a patch kit or any thing else of similar size. We've also engineered an air filter for the intake. This keeps The Stompump's internals clean of dirt and debris and working smoothly.

The Stompump is completely serviceable as well as rebuildable and repairable. We've built this pump to never need any significant service, but should you need to it's simple to disassemble and clean.

The Creators of The Stompump have been the brains behind bringing hundreds of products to market over the last 30 years. Most recently we launched the Bar Fly brand of products. We've designed and manufactured OEM Products for companies like Cycliq, Cervelo, Specialized, Sigma and more. Not to mention the work we do with other companies like the Longnow Foundation, and Universal Sonar Mount. We’ve spent our lives innovating and creating things that make our lives easier! We've compiled much of the IP that's gone into The Stompump through our hobby as Battlebots competitors, winning 7 championship "nuts" over several weight classes.

Risks and challenges

Over the last 10 years, the crew at Stomp Cycles has been involved in the development of hundreds of products you may use every day. With each product, there are always unforeseen challenges. We have tried to mitigate as many challenges as we could predict.

Stomp Cycles has spent 2 years getting The Stompump ready for production. This includes engineering, designing, prototyping, testing, and tooling for the product. We have tested the product on bicycles in all terrains, motorcycles, cars and all vehicles in between. In the hands of the most demanding and abusive outdoors people we could find, The Stompump performed flawlessly. The Stompump works better than we could have predicted, and has been universally praised by our testers and early reviewers.

Stomp has sourced only the best materials for The Stompump. We have engaged contract manufacturers with a strong history of hitting timelines and exceptional quality control. Most importantly, Stomp has existing relationships and proven track records with these suppliers. The Stompump is completely vetted and ready to fix your flat tire.

While we are thoroughly confident in our process, each product carries unique risks and challenges. For The Stompump, this includes:

- Potential for packaging and or tooling modifications
- Packaging or shipping delays

Stomp Cycles has a sum of 35 years of delivering exceptional products to end users and clients. Stomp Cycles will not sacrifice quality. If we encounter any issues with our product, we will immediately communicate with our backers, providing them all information about the delay and options available. Our experience and history of delivering successful products to market illustrates Stomp Cycles' ability to deliver The Stompump to all our backers within the defined timeline while maintaining exceptional service, quality, and support.

Our commitment to you, as our backers, is frequent and transparent communication throughout this process, and the assurance you are completely thrilled with the product.
