Industrial design of sports products

We love sports. We love designing products that perform better and stand out by their innovative features.

Performance and innovation

We have experience in designing, developing, prototyping and testing both simple and complex sports products, for instance an aero-helmet, where dynamic shape, performance, high-tech materials and safety regulations have to be in balance.
industrial design of inline skate wheels

Red Dot Design Award and ISPO Gold Winner: DWS Z1 inline skate wheels

Maplez DWS Z1 is a sleek, streamlined, high-performance and eco-friendly wheel system that weighs less than 155 grams, yet it’s highly durable due to its unique aluminum rim. The wheel has unparalleled strength and speed. Additionally, it requires less material and time to replace. The elimination of a non-recyclable plastic core makes the process of changing wheels better for the environment and it’s revolutionizing the skating industry.

Benedik-Design, Founder (SLV)
Winner Consumer Voting ISPO COMMUNITY:

"The interchangeable rim/rubber concept is a perfect example for ecological engineering. It's also a great example for how to implement proven principles into the action sports industries. In addition, the user will carry less weight and spend less on the exchange of wheels."

Industrial design of Decathlon sports nutrition bottle.

ESS Decathlon Aptonia sports-nutrition bottle

This ESS (easy serve system) sports nutrition bottle was developed for one of the brands of Decathlon. Multiple user researches helped us to design a simple solution to faultlessly dose the nutrition powder or fluid with normal water. The sleek sophisticated design is a large step forward for Aptonia.

The bottle offers intuitive and precise dosing, but also offers a sustainable solution, as the bottle can be re-used and nutrition refills can be sold in a very cheap bio-degradable packaging.



Industrial design of an ice hockey skate holder

S-series ice hockey skate holder

The S-series newly engineered holders offer light weight, quick change of blades and more stiffness then other holders on the market. They fit perfectly to the S-series shoe and have great impact strength and toughness against the puck hitting sideways, thanks to the use of a high-performance glass-fiber reinforced nylon.

By designing the holder in two parts, which are connected by ultrasonic welding, we could use a special construction which makes the holder lighter and stiffer then the present best holders.

The S-series ice hockey holders have an stealth inspired styling and offer outstanding dynamics and performance.
