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

TWGuard is the new, revolutionary way of wheel and tire protection.
Made from lightweight, high quality aluminium TWGuard prevents damaged tires and rims. This new product offers you a cost-effective alternative to repairs and improves the rims optically without additional painting.

To protect the actual rim a special aluminium ring is mounted between rim and the Guard during assembly. It sticks out a few millimeters beyond the edge of the rim.

This protects both the rim from damage as well as the tire from dangerous cracks which can lead to blowouts. We've been working in the automotive industry for over 30 years. As a developer of many products such as the modular bike, we know whats matters. Our vision was a visually appealing option to protect tires and rims from being scathed. After more than 3000 working hours of development our team of engineers and designers was able to produce a first dummy (prototype). 

  • But, what makes TWGuard unique?
    - The only rim protection made of aluminium. 
    - 9 unique colors
    - made in Germany
    - 5 sizes, from 18 - 22" 
    - Extremely light Carbon Fiber 
    - Protects the tires from damage 
    - Assembly without tools 
    - Patented mounting system 

The first prototypes are finished, tested. Now it is time for the production of tools and machines. Our Product will be offered as a set of 4 or can be ordered as a single one.

Risks and challenges

There are many rim protectors, but none is made of sturdy aluminum and superior in its quality. The problem with this product was to ensure that the rim protector withstands the high demands and stresses. After a long series of tests and the production of many prototypes, we came to the desired result after more than 5 years.
