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.

XBAR founder Damian Sanders

 Hi, I’m Damian Sanders, pioneer pro snowboarder and inventor of the XBAR.

Being a pro-athlete meant I was always in great shape. But that became much more difficult to keep up with as I got older, and busier. Work, family, hobbies and responsibilities left no time for the gym.

So I went to work on designs for a workout device that would allow millions of people just like me, to workout whenever and wherever they wanted. That’s when the concept for the XBAR was born.

 It’s an entire gym in the palm of your hands!

Our design team put countless R & D hours into the bar design and hexagon docking system to achieve just the right size, feel and function 

  • Non-slip detachable docks
  • Center disconnect for even more exercises
  • Collapsible for travel – only 18”
  • Lightweight and strong
  • Heavy duty components
  • 360* end swivels
  • Snap guard resistance bands

The FLYT is ergonomically designed to mimic the world’s most proven curl bars, with four main hand placement options

  • Reverse grip
  • Wide grip
  • Regular grip
  • Close grip

When in separated mode, the FLYT works incredible for

  • Hammer curls
  • Tricep kickbacks
  • Lateral raises
  • Army crawls
  • Military push-ups
  • Fly push-ups 
  • And dozens more
When fully collapsed, the XBAR | FLYT is only 18" and fits just about anywhere. Just imagine the places you'll take yours!

Over the course of the past few years, we have had the pleasure of working with some of the top fitness professionals in the world. The XBAR has been a huge hit and we are so excited to see where the FLYT takes us next.

 No other personal-fitness system on earth is as compact, multi-functional and travel ready as the FLYT. We have innovatively combined the best parts of a half-dozen different exercise tools. A standard curl bar, a push-up bar, a Pilate’s bar, an ab slider and a streamlined anchor system. With these fundamental tools you can mimic literally hundreds of gym inspired exercises. Never has there been available to you a more innovative and functional personal-fitness system that you can do so much with. The FLYT is raw, unadulterated and incredibly intuitive. From the first time you grip it until your workout is done, you will know exactly how to use it. It’s that product that just makes sense. There’s no learning curve, just grab it and go! Anytime and anywhere.

We released the original XBAR on Kickstarter in 2014 to rave reviews and were triple funded!

Risks and challenges

The good news is, this is not our first product so we have our manufacturing and shipping locked down. We have already produced and shipped almost 10,000 original XBARS so it’s safe to say, “this isn’t our first rodeo” ☺

Nonetheless, there are always risks in getting a product to market. Some of our components require complicated tooling and very detailed sub assemblies… we have completed almost every element of the design and engineering in the prototyping phase… But going into production requires higher volume tools that may have longer lead-times than we have anticipated. We have given ourselves a buffer and we are confident we can produce the XBAR | FLYT in the time we’ve quoted.
