RIDER DEVELOPMENTS – PROTOW
Rider Developments, a Scottish start-up company, came to us with a concept for an innovative product, which would allow mountain bike uplift in many resorts where previously this would have not been possible.
The Protow project and design has been heavily focused on functional and user testing, safety requirements, backed up with FEA and calculation, and the creation of a full technical file. We have provided support throughout the entire development process from initial concept ideas all the way through to design for manufacture. We have also created technical documentation and branding support for this innovative product which will revolutionise the use of off-season ski resorts.
They are now a prestigious iF award winner and after gaining much interest for the product, they are now working in partnership with the world’s leading manufacturer of ropeways, cable cars and ski lifts.
“The key to our successful collaboration has been Cramasie’s ability to guide our business through the design process and maintain a full understanding of our specific product requirements. They have made it a smooth, easy and effective process through a maze of design challenges. I would highly recommend working with the team at Cramasie!” Roland Rider, Director of Rider Developments
The ProTow has been purchased by the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group who have taken it further, whilst staying true to the original design.
