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.

About

Pendolare was designed for urban professionals who commute to school and to the office via bicycle. The brand features premium leather trimmed bags and accessories that can go from the bike to the boardroom with a an easy change of a few straps.  

Each piece is road tested and designed to work well on or off the bike. From a trip to the farmers market on a Saturday to your commute to the office on Monday, the Pendolare collection has something for everyone!

Pendolare gear is handcrafted from Italian leather and weather worthy high end fabrications. We use only the finest materials and metal fittings.

The funds raised by Kickstarter will be used to pay for the manufacturing of the Pendolare bags. The final prototypes have already been made and wear tested and paid for by the designer.  Any additional funds will be used to market the Pendolare collection to the bicycling community and beyond. 

Pendolare gear is made from the finest materials and built to last you a decade as you commute through your life. Share this journey with us!

Risks and challenges

As the founder I have been in the handbag and leather goods industry for 18 years. I have strong relationships with manufacturers and suppliers. The manufacturing side I have covered and the suppliers have already been identified. The Pendolare final prototypes have already been paid for and wear tested.

The challenge we for see will be building the brand through sales and marketing. I will be able to overcome this challenge with the right team members in sales and marketing as we transition from a start up concept to a fully operational brand. We believe it is our customers should be able to afford premium gear without paying high end department store prices!
