Description

Most of the Airtracks you can buy today are of a low quality and most are filled with toxic phthalates which are unsafe for kids to get in contact with. So me and a few friends are working on a brand new series of Airtrack in high quality, with double rail technology and completely free from toxic phthalates. The problem with developing such an Airtrack is that the material costs are much higher. But it can be done and have been done bfore as you can see some examples of here - toxic free Airtracks.
What we are trying to do, is being able to build these Airtracks much cheaper than the other high quality Airtracks on the marked today. One way to do that is to have a smaller amount and not so many variations in the webshop. For each additional length and color, you will need to design the Airtrack, have additional storage space and tons of other issues. Having only a few different models makes this much easier and it also lowers the production costs. As it's way cheaper to having 100 identical Airtracks produced compared to 20 of 5 different types. Much like you can read on this Airtrack page.

But why even focus on creating a new Airtrack some may ask? Well if you didn't already know it, Airtracks are some of the most popular types of training equipment these days for people in the age of 7 to 16. Especially those who are interested in martial arts, parkour, cheerleading or gymnastics. You will most likely find a big 10-15 meter Airtrack in most gymnastic training halls. The reason why main use these Airtrack mats, are because they are very soft to land on and more stable than a normal thick gym mat and more important - they provide the person jumping on it with a nice boost to the jump height. The thicker the Airtrack is, the higher this boost is. And why is this great you may ask? Well imagine you can almost do this new jump your gym teacher showed you at practice, but not quite. What if you suddenly got a 20% extra boost on your jump? In many cases that would be enough to do enable you to fully do the jump on the Airtrack. Because of this many gymnasts use it for training in order to learn new jumps much faster. More experienced user, would prefer a longer and thicker Airtrack as this gives them far more options, not to mention more speed and height on the jumps.

It's not just the new gymnasts who uses the Airtrack as a training tool, also the more experienced people love using the Airtracks. Not because they can learn new jumps faster, but because the additional height they can get, enables them to combine more jumps and flipz in a series. This makes it much more fun to do gymnastics. You can compare it a little bit to doing standup paddleboarding while having a small motor below the paddleboard. It just makes it more fun and easier. Now a day allmost all who have been doing gymnastics for a while, are interested in buying such an Airtrack for home use. It's typical the smaller 3-4 meter models which you can use both indoor and outdoor if you have the room for it.

But let's get back to my Airtrack project. I have the CAD designs done, I have found which materials to use, which colors and sizes I want the Airtracks to be. My next task will be to contact a bunch of factories in India and China and get some prices on 200 Airtracks which should be enough to get my new webshop started. And yes, I also need to get the webshop coded. This will most likely be in WooCommerce as that's one of the cheapest webshop systems for stuff like this.

To begin with I will be selling the Airtracks in Germany only. To complicated learning all the shipping and import tax rules to other countries. That can always come later, when I know if people will actually buy a toxic free Airtrack and pay that additional cost for a high quality one.
