People, get away from neck and back pain from now on with the Ridge Stand 2.0
Tired of pains in your neck and back from prolonged laptop use? Do you feel your laptop overheating? Looking for easy-to-use and portable laptop stand that can be packed on the go?
Ridge Stand 2.0 is our solution. We designed our stand to fit the exact angle of your MacBook or iPad - with comfort. With an eye-level viewing experience your posture improves. When your neck and back feel relaxed, you can fully enjoy any task, safely use your device, and improve device usage time.
In summer, how to cool the laptop is always a big problem for most of us. The Ridge Stand elevates your laptop computer off your desk, providing an optimal viewing and user-friendly experience, and helps keep your portable PC nice and chilled.
Ridge Stand Pro
The Ridge Stand Pro is designed especially for the MacBook. The new Pro stand is wider and thicker than the previous version as well as more sturdy and able to withstand the greater weight of a laptop. The design of The Ridge Stand Pro encourages a healthier posture for your neck and back as you work, play, and interact with the world.
The Ridge Stand is just the right solution for the iPad and e-reader. It can sustain a max weight of 4kg (9lbs) device by using it as position 1 like MacBook Air 11 inch. (Position 1: 4kg; Position 2: 1.3kg.) It is perfect for playing games and watching videos as well as working on your iPad.
Ridge Stand Mini
The Ridge Stand Mini is a smaller stand designed for mobile phones. The Mini is ideal for securing phones at the optimal angle to allow to comfortably watch videos, browse the news, chat with friends, and take selfies anywhere - even in the car. *Every package includes a car mount and a sticky pad to secure your phone.
The Ridge Stand for the Apple Watch is the newest stand to join our family. Just snap your magnetic charger in place and let your watch charges automatically. Continuing in our Ridge Stand series, this watch stand also has a sleek design and is highly durable. It is simply a must have for any Apple Watch owner.

ADJUSTABILITY: Our stands can be adjusted and readjusted to fit any angle thanks to its strong hinge units – you can setup the stand to your eye level, and to relax your neck and back.
CLEAN WORKSPACE: The Ridge Stand was designed to help cut clutter from the workday and open spaces that promote productive thought. We believe that people can get more done when they have a clean, organized workplace. Less clutter means less distraction, which equates to greater focus and productivity.
BUILD-IN CABLE ORGANIZER: The Ridge Stand not only prevents stress on your neck and back, it removes the distracting jumble of wires with a built-in cable organizer. Regardless of the viewing angle, the charging cables can be organized and hidden from view.
KEEPING THINGS COOL: The Ridge Stand reduces heat associated with laptops, tablets, and phones by elevating the units and providing better ventilation. Now we offer a new choice for a better ventilation solution - the cooling fan kit. Better air flow to reduce device heating whether you are playing computer games, watching videos, coding, or photo/video editing.
The Ridge Stand cooling fan kit has two different specs. Each of them is adapted to the corresponding Ridge Stand or Ridge Stand Pro. You can easily attach the fan in just a few seconds.
EXTENSIONAL USB HUB/ QI WIRELESS CHARGING: With the Ridge Stand extensional clamp, you can add the USB hub, QI wireless charger. It’s compatible with different sized 3rd party products from 7 – 15 cm thickness. Just adjust the screws manually to fit different 3rd party product. No worries when you want to charge your phone while using your laptop, or not having enough USB ports.
SILICONE BUMPER: Forget annoying obstacles on the edge of your screen - we have thickened the rubber bumper. Our groove design can hold your device securely. With the new silicon buffer, you can play with your bezel less phone and tablet without any blocks from the stand.
NON-SLIP DESIGN: An extra silicone mat protects your device. Regardless if you use the stand in position A or position B, the new Ridge 2.0 design allows you to keep your cables organized and provides non-slip protection for your device.

I usually working with computer for a long time and it will start to heat up, there are lots of cooling pad for laptop on the marking, but most of them look bulky and nonadjustable. So I restructured it to be more flexible and ventilated. I shared my idea with team and started making renderings and tooling out sample after sample both using our in-house 3D printer, reach the factory to make a sample. That's how The Ridge Stand ll was born.

Risks and challenges
We are an established firm with seven years of industrial design experience. We have experience designing, producing, and bringing accessories for the Apple products, including the first Ridge Stand. Our manufacturer has already produced samples of the Ridge Stand 2.0 series, everything is ready to go.
Shipping Risk: We ship to worldwide locations and outsource to logistics experts. However, the shipping process is not immune to complications (such as weather, customs, and other uncontrollable factors). November to January is a peak shipping season and frequently causes shipping delays. We will do our best to meet your expectations and hope that backers can be patient and understanding.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
