Be challenged. Be inspired. Be you.
As many of you know, the Outrider team sent a crew to Park City, Utah last month for the No Barriers Summit. We shared information about the Summit in our last blog post, so please refer to it if you want event specific details. Click here to read the post Outrider USA at No Barriers Summit 2015
The purpose of this post is to share our personal experiences at the Summit as well as the experiences of our incredible test riders. It is no secret that we attribute our current and continuing success on our ability to listen to our customers. It was practicing this skill that led to the conception of the Horizon in 2013 and is what continues to aid development as we move towards final production.
Since the Kickstarter campaign, all of us here at the shop and those who have pre-ordered the Horizon have been eager to see it come to life. Unfortunately, we were not thrilled with the performance of the Kickstarter prototype. Since we refuse to ever deliver a product that falls short of our standards, we went back to the drawing board. Post-Kickstarter prototyping has been an arduous, but essential process. Part of this process is getting people who would genuinely benefit from the Horizon actually test riding it and giving us feedback. There is no better place to find a community of courageous, passionate, and adventurous individuals to test out the Horizon than at the No Barriers Summit.
Here is Matt Godfrey's recap of the event:
Thank you to No Barriers, Canyons Resort, and all the participants and companies that helped make this such an incredible event. The Outrider Team is already looking forward to what next year's Summit has in store!
We were fortunate enough to be able to bring along a full time videographer on the trip to capture our journey. To hear testimonials from our test riders and to see them tearing it up on the Horizon, please check out the videos we have posted on YouTube:
We hope you enjoy these videos and please check our YouTube page regularly for new content!
Outrider is still a bit new to the adaptive sports arena, and we would love any and all feedback, suggestions and recommendations of other events for us to attend.
As always, thank you to all our friends, family and followers for your unwavering support and encouragement. We could not do it without you all!
