Eleviia started to take shape as an inkling of a dream Jack had after finding himself in yet another hotel without any way to do pullups in the gym. At first, the dream was blurry, lumpy, and vague. But its core was solid and tough. By clamping onto both sides of the door, we could create a doorway pullup bar that was small enough to take anywhere, and yet safer and more secure than anything else.
It took us three and a half years to define the blurry edges of that dream. We spent that time prototyping, designing, building testing machines, 3D printing, creating mathematical models, and so many other things. We had to be picky about our parts vendors, and they had to be particular about our parts to make sure they come together perfectly not just once, but every time. It took us those years, hundreds of hours of testing, and five major prototype revisions to discover what Eleviia really wanted to be.
Now we know.
