RideAir – From Idea to Product

RideAir approached Igloo with an idea for a new bicycle accessory: an effortless push-button air pump.

Design and Development

Igloo was involved in developing the product from the very first stages and came up with a variety of solutions.

The pump was especially tailored for maximum efficiency. The same size as a standard water bottle, it easily attaches to the bike. We added an air pressure gauge indicating the amount of air in the tank, an internal manifold with a pressure relief valve, a flexible tube for easy access to the bike valve, and a metal cable with a code-protected lock.  

The aluminum tank is manufactured using injection blow-molding technology, delivering a product that withstands high air pressure and is highly durable during cycling and under harsh field conditions. The black rubber surface is comfortable to grip and creates an esthetic combination of matte and glossy finishes.

All of these factors combine to produce a meticulously designed and impressive product with a look consistent with the world of accessories for extreme sports.

Stylish and impressive prototype

3-D imaging and working models were produced throughout the entire process. The final prototype was of such high quality that the customer used it in its crowdfunding campaign marketing materials.
