Concept to Prototype
Until now, it has been widely accepted that it isn’t possible to effectively stiffen a two-piece boot. Once we started working and experimenting with our prototype ProFlex and achieved the “impossible,” we quickly realized there was also a huge potential range of uses beyond simply stiffening hybrid boots (boots with walk modes). Instantly, the applications were obvious, but the problem of manufacturing proved difficult. We tried carbon fibre, vacuum moulding and even 3D printing, but none produced the result we were looking for. In collaboration with Pebax, we discovered injection moulding was the only way to get the performance we were looking for.
We now having a brilliant working prototype, but need your help to get to the ProFlex to production.
