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.

Belts are plain and boring. You've seen one, you've seen them all...right? They're usually a strip of leather or webbing that we just buckle around our waist to keep our pants up. They're extremely uncomfortable if we can't squeeze into that last hole on the buckle and the buckles are usually bulky.

Well, we’re changing that. We are using recycled tire treads to create unique, durable, and fashionable belts. This is more than just a pants holder upper. The Revival Tire Belt has character, it tells a story. Due to the different wear pattern of every tread, every belt is unique. 

One Size Fits All

You no longer need to suck in your gut to fit into that last hole on your belt. Our one size fits all buckle makes it easy to adjust the sizing on the belt. You will simply need to cut the excess of the belt so you don’t have any long expose flap on you belt. You simple slip and click your belt to get the perfect fit every time. 

 

 2 Styles 1 Belt

With the Reversible Revival Tire Belt you can wear your belt to show off the unique wear and tear of the tread or flip it over and see the inside rubber of the tire.

 

 Durability 

Car tires are strong and durable. Think about it... A tire has about a 50,000 mile lifespan and is carrying at least a 2,000 pound car. That's a heavy load! If a tire is strong enough to support a car it is definitely strong enough to support your pants. 

Warranty

We believe in our product and purpose so much, that we have a 30,000 mile/ 2 year warranty on our belts.

The Most Eco-Friendly Belt Ever!

We are taking discarded tires that are no longer road worthy and bringing life back to them by repurposing them into stylish belts. Recycled Tires make the best belts. Tires are strong, flexible, durable, and they have cool tread patterns.

Express Yourself

We tend to express ourselves through our clothing. Our Revival Tire Belts are more than just an accessory to hold up your pants, they carry a story and a message as well. Every belt has a unique tread pattern. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the exact tread pattern or wear that your belt will have, but that's what makes these belts so cool! Every belt is unique and different. Every belt tells a story of its travels.

Look Good Feel Good

You aren't just going to look good with your Revival Tire Belt. You are going to feel good, knowing that because of your purchase you are making a difference. You are doing more than just buying a belt, you are promoting a lifestyle, you are bringing awareness to recycling and making a difference. You are making an impact!

Are the Tires Dirty?

Don’t worry, the tires go through a thorough sanitization process. Your belt will be nice and clean.

Will the Belt Leave Skid Marks on my Pants?

Nope. You would have to be whipping your belt extremely fast. I’ve worn my belt plenty of times with white pants and I’ve never had a skid mark on my pants.

 Why are Tires Bad for the Environment? 

It's time for an environmental lesson. Over 290 Million tires are disposed of each year and about 20% of those tires are improperly disposed of. Tires are a hug pollutant to our environment. When they are not properly disposed of they cause major environmental damage. 

Tires are made up of about 30% crude oil, which makes tires flammable, and when they burn, they burn black smoke, which release toxic fumes into our air. 

When it rains, water gets stuck in the wheel wells of the tires and mold starts to grow. The warm tire becomes the perfect breeding grounds for disease carrying mosquitos. 

Tires are large objects and make vast air pockets in our landfills. Tires are super durable and they don't decompose well. This prohibits the rest of the trash that may be trapped inside the walls of the tire to not decompose as well.

Hey Kickstarter! My name is Emerson. I've always had a knack for recycling. As a kid I was always creating something from our recycling bins like toilet paper binoculars, tin can drums, or recycled wood push carts. You can have hours of fun just creating things from your recycling bin!

When I was living down in South America I fell in love with how resourceful the people were down there. Nothing went to waste. When I returned back to the states I realized how much we just throw away because it is convenient. I wanted to do something that would inspire a cleaner environment.

I believe that it is the simple things that can make a lasting impact. I believe that together we can make change happen.

Risks and challenges

We have experience in making belts from recycled tire. This company started 2 years ago by recycling old bike tires and converting those bike tires to belts. While this is a new process of converting car tires into belts, we are confident that we can meet demand.

We have already partnered with established tire recycling agencies to help source recycled tire tread. We already have an established facility to properly cut and splice the car tire tread to our specifications. We already have a belt buckle manufacturer lined up ready to go.

We have a buckle manufacturer all lined up for production. It should take 90 days from start to finish for the production of the buckles, depending on the quantities ordered. We are excited to make Revival a reality!
