 About Us

We're TOGS, we're all about thumbs. In 2014, we released the world's first thumb grips for mountain bikes. Now at rider's request, we bring thumb grips to road and gravel bikes.

 Why Road Togs?

  • Road Togs make the drops more comfortable, supporting the thumb and wrist in a neutral position and lightening the grip. 
  • Road Togs are stable, taming uneven terrain and preventing the hand slipping on the bar. Great for descending.
  • Road Togs are efficient, promotes spending more time in the drops. 

Improve performance, Re-discover the drops.

Funding

We are asking for campaign funding to purchase the injection mold for the Road Tog bodies. Our goal of just $15k is the minimum we need to build the mold and get started delivering quality Road Togs into the hands of our supporters.  Thankfully, we have established USA suppliers and partners that we have worked with in the past (MTB Togs). This will help us bring Road Togs to fruition, on time. TOGS production partners include: Curvature, Wasatch Container, Fast Plastic Parts, GMAC Steel, Advanced Printing Solutions, Jibe Media and Maschoff Brennan. 

Special Thanks to @hannahjarvissss & @julesgoogly for consulting and videography

Risks and challenges

We feel we have a good handle on the risks and challenges with this project. A common risk we face with injection molding are the variances that affect fit and feel of the product. We have done extensive prototyping and are sure of the design. While the design files are production ready, sometimes a delay can occur in mold production or quality assurance concerns. We will work to minimize these by starting early and using our established US partners.
