Formy is focused on creating the best 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 bike grips will be available in Summer 2016, first through Formy's limited Pre-sale, then Formy's Kickstarter campaign.

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 size grip will fit you perfectly. Then we 3D print your grips in a flexible and durable thermoplastic that is available in over 20 different colors. The result is a comfortable, secure grip that looks great on your bike.

Formy bike grips are available for pre-order until all Kickstarter grips have been shipped. Pre-ordered grips will be shipped in April 2017.

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 applying everything he's 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 2015, Super Demo (a business pitch competition sponsored by the University of Virginia and Alexis Ohanian), and Recess (a business pitch competition sponsored by the USA Network, Delta Airlines, and others). 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. Formy grips will be available for pre-order until all of the Kickstarter rewards are fulfilled in March 2017.
