TrailPix was born out of my frustration with using conventional tripods when I was out hiking. I love the convenience of a tripod, but hated the weight and hassle.
So, I started designing, and prototyping, and designing some more. In all, I shared prototypes with over 25 reviewers on 3 continents, and each iteration got better and better. Satisfied I had a product that people liked and were using, I launched a kickstarter project. The project was fully funded within 24 hours of launch and went on to more than triple the goal.
The TrailPix platform is made in the USA, machined on very high tech 5-axis machining centers from solid aluminum.
I live in Cary, NC with my wife and 2 children. I am a professional engineer (PE) and my day job has me working on next generation airborne wind energy systems.
I hope you enjoy using TrailPix as much as I have and that it allows you to capture more of your memories when you are in the most beautiful places you will ever be.
