Revolin’s goal is to revolutionize sporting goods equipment with high performance, sustainable materials that provide better play and a better planet. Our first obsession? Pickleball.
Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation. As racquet athletes, we fell in love with the easy to learn, easy to play, social, intergenerational blend of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. That’s why our first product is the world’s first sustainable pickleball paddle.
Our proprietary composite technology and design produces a durable, lightweight paddle, with decreased vibration and a better feel of the ball at the point of connection. More than any other composite surface, Revolin’s intensifies control and decreases shock while respecting the planet.
We’ve put everything we have into R&D, and we’ve made the best paddle on the market. Now, we require funding for our public product launch to prove that you don’t have to sacrifice sustainability for badass play.
Experts estimate that sporting equipment uses 31 million lbs/year carbon fiber today, but this hi-tech material is wasteful to produce and nearly impossible to recycle. Fiberglass uses 9x the non-renewable energy, produces 3x more Co2, and is 45x more toxic to humans than our material.
We hope to end this waste and catalyze the move towards sustainability in sports by proving high performance and sustainability are not incompatible and teaching consumers to prioritize both.
What I Will Do With $5,000
If granted, we will use the $5,000 to bring our first official product to market. More specifically, we will use the money for the following:
$4000 to produce the first FLX 2.0 run of paddles
$500 for U.S.A. Pickleball Association paddle certification
$500 for packaging design
