We started in late 2020 with a simple idea:
Create a rapid deployable weather protection device that provides motorcycle riders temporary cover in the event of a rain or hail storm. It will be easily storable, safely deployable, and reusable.
We live in the Black Hills of South Dakota and every year we have watched as 300-500 thousand motorcycle riders descend upon the hills for the Annual Sturgis motorcycle rally.
Every year, someone gets injured due to hail and every year thousands of vehicles in the area are damaged due to the number of hail storms that hit the area.
We have seen riders bunch up together under overpasses and gas stations. We have seen riders keep riding through hail covering the ground. We have see people hurt by hail stones....
So the idea was born.
In late April 2021 our company will present our business to the South Dakota Governor's Giant Vision Awards competition in Sioux Falls, SD. We have been accepted as one of six businesses to present out of all that applied for this years competition.
Additionally, we have been accepted into the Ascent-Innovation business incubator program in Rapid City SD. We are the first new tenant accepted to the new location.
We are Veteran owned and operated, we are minority owned, and we woman owned.
We are minority owned, woman owned and, as stated just previously, Veteran owned and operated.
