3D printing has been a hot topic lately, and no one knows that better than RaceWare Direct. After all, most of the products they sell come off a printer in either 3D printed nylon or titanium. After RaceWare entered into the world of Garmin mounts, Tyler had a chance to review one hot off the press. Now, in addition to titanium chain catchers, number holders, and stems RaceWare is also printing out GoPro mounts like the red, white, and blue number above. The GoPro mounts and matching Garmin mounts will be sold in a number of color combinations as well as made to order options through their new custom program that will be rolling out shortly.
See the effect that 3D printing may have on future products next.
One of the benefits from 3D printing is since there are no molds, theoretically each piece can be unique. Looking to capitalize on that fact, RaceWare is about to launch a new website that will have a custom mount creator allowing you to design your own mount right before your eyes. In addition to custom colors it looks like the mounts will offer customization like adding your name to the side of the mount. Martyn from RaceWare says that they should be able to have the custom mount in the customer’s hand 2 weeks after the order is placed.
Finally, RaceWare showed us one last new product – their new twin arm Garmin mount. With a very similar concept to the WoMo mounts we saw at Interbike, the mount allows you to run a Garmin up top and a Gopro underneath. RaceWare also created a bracket that will mount to the GoPro mount allowing the use of Exposure lights.
