Ski boot attachment
Ski boots are awkward and uncomfortable to walk in. Our client wanted a solution that didn't need to be removed from the ski boot, but made them easier and safer to walk in when not skiing
The design of the product was complex due to the many different sizes and designs of ski boots. We created a design which was adaptable, robust and easy to use wearing gloves
Extensive CAD development and prototyping was carried out to refine the design to ensure it could cope with the forces involved but still be easy to operate. 3D printing and machined metal parts were used to create functional prototypes for testing.
We partnered with a manufacturer who could produce the high precision metal overmoulded and toughened plastic parts that formed the final design and a unique patented mechanism. Packaging design and a website was also created for the product.
