Formy is focused on creating the best bike grips by leveraging advances in digital design and fabrication to improve comfort, durability, and customizability. Formy bike grips were designed using 3D scanning to ensure a perfect fit with each rider. They are 3D printed in a flexible and durable thermoplastic in your choice of over 40 colorways. Formy launched on Kickstarter in November 2016 after 2 years of research and development.

Formy has rethought how bike grips are designed and manufactured by applying cutting edge methods of digital design and fabrication to increase comfort, durability, and color options. By simply entering your hand width and middle finger length, we can determine which grip size will fit you perfectly. Then your grips are 3D printed in a flexible and durable thermoplastic that is available in over 40 colorways. The result is a comfortable, durable, and secure grip that looks great on your bike.

Research and development of Formy grips began in September 2014 by Sky Van Iderstine, a senior student of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech who has since become a College of Engineering alumnus and Virginia Tech's 2015 Undergraduate Innovator of the Year. In 2013, Sky founded Strapping Fellow, an online business through which he designs, manufactures, and sells custom watch straps. Now he's applied everything he learned about custom product fabrication and online sales to Formy.

Since its inception, many in the Virginia Tech community have contributed to help grow Formy from a conceptual product into a reputable company. We won Virginia Tech's Innovation Competition in 2014 ($5,000 prize) and University of Virginia's Super Demo Competition in 2015 ($3,000 prize). With the funding from these competitions and the guidance of countless members of the Virginia Tech community, Formy launched Formy bike grips on Kickstarter in September 2016. After achieving over 180% funding on the Kickstarter campaign, all grips were shipped early or on time. Now Formy bike grips are available for sale exclusively on FormyGrips.com and will ship within 2 weeks of placing your order.
