A Sporting Exosuit is an exoskeleton used for fun; part sporting equipment like football clothes and pads, and part mobility machine like electric vehicles.  I.E. IRON MAN

 

                                     

 

Risks and challenges

This is Rise Robotics' first direct-to-customer endeavor.

Coaches and advisors from many fields are here to spot pitfalls and prevent them. We have manufacturing expertise ready to assist us in delivering products.

We intend to deliver KickSticks by the end of 2017. In case product development moves more slowly than we anticipate, we have set our delivery date to 18 months after successfully reaching our crowdfunding goal. We hope to deliver much faster than that.

If it costs more than anticipated, we will give customers transparency into the choices we have as far as modifications to the product's specifications.
