      I'm interested in your product as a user and potential reseller. I have several years of bike shop experience. Front and back of the house. I've seen the shift toward on-line sales and direct marketing and I still think traditional retail works with your strategy. Well done!

      I don't have a retail license but this model could work well for my home shop and personal use. I believe in the community of cycling and think the effect of sales people using the product they sell is a powerful influencer as a brand ambassador.

      My question is regarding demo models and reseller warranty. In short, could I get a Kupper at the Kickstarter "wholesale" price as a demo model before I commit to convincing others your product rocks?

      Thanks!

What's Included with a Kupper Mounts Perk/Reward? 

The Kupper Mounts Bike Carrier Includes All of the Items Pictured Above
The Kupper Mounts Bike Carrier Includes All of the Items Pictured Above

1. Front Kupper Mount: This secures the bike’s front forks

2. Rear Kupper Mount: This secures the bike’s rear wheel

3. Security Tether: With a steel-braided line running though the center of the strap, this locks your bike to your vehicle. Simply loop through bike frame and drop the end into your vehicle’s door, trunk, or hatch.

4. Cam-Buckle Strap: Use this in place of the Rear Kupper Mount when mounting your bike on the rear of a vehicle where the Rear Kupper Mount can’t be applied. Simply loop through your rear stays or wheel, attach flat PVC coated hook to either the bottom lip of trunk lid or the bumper, then cinch tight.

5. Pedal-Stay Velcro Strap: Wrap this around your crank arm and bike frame to keep your pedals from back-spinning while traveling down the road.

6. All-In-One Carrying Case: Your Kupper Kit has a home! Store your entire Kupper Mount System in the conveniently portable carrying case when not carrying your bike. * Carrying Case image is only for representation purposes and is not the final case design.

Who?

Kupper Mounts were developed by a team of bike shop employees, bicycle mechanics and cycling advocates that wanted to build a better bike carrier to meet the pent up demand from their friends, families, fellow biking advocates and weekend warriors of a similar mindset that needed an easier, more affordable and secure way to transport their bikes. 

Challenges?

1. The very first challenge of buying a high end bicycle is how to take it home.  

2. Next, came the challenge of how to pack up several bikes and head out to local mountain biking trails or cycling tours and races.  

3. And, after a couple of months of breaking in a new bike on some rough, bone-jarring mountain biking trails, what was the easiest way to take it back to the local bike shop for warranty work, a badly needed tune up or to install some new bike accessories such as better shocks, wheels, lights, a GPS system or other handy upgrades?

Solution? => Sell a Kupper Mount with every bike! 

Our Kupper Mounts made the solution to these challenges very easy, convenient and more affordable than the competition! Why not buy a Reseller 10-Pack before the price goes up?

The Kupper Mount Has a Mighty Grip with Guaranteed Suction - Can Hold a 300 lb Man Upside Down!
The Kupper Mount Has a Mighty Grip with Guaranteed Suction - Can Hold a 300 lb Man Upside Down!

Problem Solved!

1. Compact - Although It's Grip is Mighty, It's Storage Foot Print is the Smallest in World

2. Fast & Easy Install - It Can Be Installed on Any Car, Truck or SUV and is Great for Rentals

3. Nothing Else Required - It Does Not Require a Luggage Rack or Trailer Hitch to Install

4. Very Affordable - Although It's Packed with Features, It Costs Less than the Competition 

5. Love it? - Sell more than 10 Kupper Mounts via our Social Media Marketing Kickbooster Program and we'll automatically add you or your bike shop to our international database of Kupper Mounts Resellers! 

                   No Risk. No Product Order Required. No Front End Loading. 

      10% Commissions Will Be Paid 10 Days after Crowdfunding Campaign Ends! 

Where?

Initially, Kupper Mounts were developed for college students and local bike shop customers in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, but after we ran our first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, we realized that biking enthusiasts all over the world wanted a smaller, more affordable and compact bike rack that was easy to travel with, not only for cars, vans and SUVs in the United States, but to international destinations and countries that required traveling via airplanes.  

In fact, we are now recruiting resellers, distributors and importers/exporters to sell our Kupper Mounts in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Russia, Japan, Philippines, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, South Korea, Spain, Ukraine, Poland, Australia, Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Ireland, Slovenia and other international markets. 

Interested? Buy a "Reseller 10-Pack" and we'll contact as soon as the crowdfunding campaign ends to sign you up as a Reseller in the country of your choice! 

With a 10% commission, you'll be able to earn $990 commission from Kupper Mounts by supporting this crowdfunding campaign. If you're great at sales, then mark them up and sell at full retail price in your bike shop or to your friends. At a full retail price of $199, this would allow you to earn an $1,000. This will allow Kupper Mounts to find the best bike accessories sales people on a worldwide basis!  

When?

We ran our first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2018, but like the entire biking industry, our planned and negotiated pricing for manufacturing our Kupper Mounts went up by 25% due to expected tariffs implemented by the United States on China, so we had to go back and renegotiate everything.

We are now setup to do a 45-day Kickstarter campaign that is planned for March 5, 2019, ending in the middle of April. Manufacturing line setup, tooling and several rounds of prototype quality checks and then full-scale product will take a minimum of 3 months and we will begin shipping them worldwide around ~August 2019.  

Why?

Kupper Mounts was caught off guard by the large number of international players that wanted to not only buy, but begin reselling Kupper Mounts in their countries to meet the pent up demand for an affordable, easy-to-install, convenient for travel bike rack that didn't require spending several hundreds of dollars to install a luggage rack or trailer hitch that most of our competitors require.

How Much?

Our Strict Retail Price will be $199, which is also the Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) that anyone will be allowed to sell the unit in bike shops and/or via their online Internet sales channels. We are building a very strong international sales and distribution network and our Kupper Mounts will be priced to move in large volume quantities.  

We will be offering reseller price breaks at 1/2-pallet, 1-pallet, 3-pallets, 1/2-container and full-container volume pricing, with up to 60% margins, which are setup specifically to make it very easy and very profitable for importers/exporters to buy in large volume quantities to serve global markets.

The pricing offered via this crowdfunding campaign is a one-time only offering. 

Once these units are are gone, we will move all channel marketing partners to a strict Keystone price of $99 and a strict MAP price of $199. 

Crowdfunding Sales

Kupper Mounts offers bike shops a new way to sell bike accessories with no risk, no product orders, no front end loading and no inventory.
