Pullup & Dip - work out wherever you want!

€54,936

Pullups and dips are efficient exercises for your bodyweight workout - do them now wherever you want with one device!

Pullup & Dip is the world's first portable pullup and dip bar for your Freeletics, Calisthenics and other bodyweight workouts. It can be easily attached either indoor to a wall or outdoor to a tree or pole and supports you with your bodyweight workout wherever you want. Pullup & Dip is high quality "Made in Germany".

But we can’t do it without the help of the Kickstarter community. That's why we need your support to bring Pullup & Dip to reality. As an exchange we offer you great rewards that will improve your fitness workout.

There are lots of efficient exercises where you don't need any external equipment to train your muscles and strength. However for exercises like pullups or dips you need some equipment. Especially athletes who are doing sports like Freeletics, Calisthenics or other bodyweight workouts are often lacking solutions to do pullups or dips indoor and especially outdoor. Most parks where you are able to do pullups at football goals are crowded and possibilities to do dips are rare. Nearly all indoor pullup bars are fixed to the wall, can't be removed and therefore mostly don't look nice in your apartment.

That's why we developed Pullup & Dip, the world's first portable pullup and dip bar that allows you to do your workout wherever you want!

 

 

 

 

Pullup & Dip was developed on an adapter design, which allows you to use it for your indoor and outdoor workout.

Store it away when not needed and easily assemble it within a single set break. The indoor adapter is screwed to the wall and thin enough to hide with a picture.

Just insert Pullup & Dip into the indoor adapter with the screw less plugin system and you are ready to go. To switch from pullups to dips, simply turn it around 180° within seconds.

You can do both exercises with the same multi bar.

 

It‘s nice weather and you prefer outdoor workouts? No problem – the complete outdoor package of Pullup & Dip fits into a standard backpack and can be carried to your favourite location.

The outdoor package includes a tree protection, the adjustable outdoor adapter, a velcro fastener and a tension belt to tighten everything against a tree or a pole. The tree protection and the size of the outdoor adapter are distributing the force and protecting a tree or a pole from any damages.

Attach the tree protection with the included velcro fastener to a tree or pole. With the velcro fastener you can also fix the outdoor adapter to the tree protection for having both hands free to tighten everything against a tree or pole. No additional person is needed for the installation! This makes it also easy for women to install Pullup & Dip.

For Dips you don’t have to lower the position of the adapter as the incline design provides a perfect height for both exercises.

Because of the adapter design with two different adapters available, Pullup & Dip can be used indoors or attached outdoors to trees or poles of different sizes, wherever you like to do your workout. 

If it's bad weather or you don't have much time, use Pullup & Dip indoors in your apartment. It's nice weather and you want to do your workout outside? Take Pullup & Dip with you wherever you like to do your workout!

 

Pullups belong to compound exercises and are a basic exercise of most workouts. They are targeting many different muscle groups at the same time and are therefore the most efficient exercise for the upper body. Pullups strengthen the back muscles and are relieving the spine and intervertebral discs.

Dips are also a compound push-type exercise. They stimulate a large number of muscles in your upper body like chest, shoulders and triceps at the same time.

For over one year now we have been developing and testing Pullup & Dip to make it a unique fitness product. Due to the intense testing and the great feedback from the community we have been able to make significant improvements with every new prototype. It makes us proud to see where the journey has taken us compared to our very first prototype. The patent on our innovation is registered and we finished the prototype development so we are now ready for the serial production. However this is just the beginning!

 

 

By supporting this project, you're helping us to bring Pullup & Dip to YOU. Once reaching our funding goal, these funds will go towards the start of a serial production, the creation of an online-shop, certificates and building up a logistic so as many athletes as possible will be able to extend their bodyweight workout with Pullup & Dip. Together we will make it!

The idea started with a pullup bar for outdoor usage only as our outdoor workout location was closed during the Oktoberfest and therefore we no longer had the option of doing pullups there at the football goals within our Freeletics workout. We were also lacking a solution to do dips indoors and especially outdoors as most parks with possibilities are used by kids or footballers. That is why we started to develop a solution!

Over more than one year Pullup & Dip has gone through different development stages. We started off with an outdoor pullup bar which could only be attached to trees but was way too heavy. We continued with a foldable "steel panzer" that could be carried in a backpack but was still way too heavy with over 13 kg. The third prototype was a foldable version, much lighter than before but because of the foldable mechanism it could also be used as a "guillotine" to cut fingers and was therefore way too dangerous. However because of the adapter design we developed it could now be used both indoor and outdoor.

Due to intense testing and user feedback, we found out that dips could also be possible so we developed a design which allows it to do both exercises only by turning the device around 180°. We further reduced the weight for a more comfortable transportation and developed multi bars that make it possible to do both exercises with the same bar without a change. 

 What we ended up with is the for us best solution for a portable pullup and dip bar for indoor and outdoor usage. But it's just the beginning!

Risks and challenges

Developing our own product is heaps of fun, but also risky, with unseen challenges that inevitably spring up over the course of development. We are developing and testing now for more than one year with multiple prototypes, however unforeseen challenges might surface that cannot be predicted in advance. With our experience and our passion we will do everything to limit those unpredictable challenges.

We promise to keep our backers up to date about all updates on Pullup & Dip. We want to deliver the highest-quality of Pullup & Dip possible and for that reason we may need to make some adjustments stort term. If there are any changes made during the final development phase and manufacturing process, we ensure that all our backers will be notified immediately.

We really believe in our product and will only ship Pullup & Dip if it meets our standards of quality. Please keep in mind that there are still situations beyond our control and this may warrant future adjustments to the delivery date.

This is our first product ever on Kickstarter so we also need to gain experience; however we have an ambitious team and will do our best to deliver you a great product on time. Thank you for your trust in us!
