AeroPod shipping update

Post by Velocomp » Fri Jul 27, 2018 11:06 am

At Eurobike we had lots of people touch and play with our pre-production AeroPods.

One of the very unexpected things we watched people do is attempt to pry off a tab on the side of the unit. Except...it isn't a removable tab, it is the switch button!

Prying off the button isn't easy, but it isn't impossible. And if the button is pried-off it will break the device. We realized that this could turn into a major issue, so in the past few weeks we redesigned the button.

Unfortunately, this design change has delayed our tooling by about a month. So, we now expect to receive parts near the end of August. Hopefully we will begin shipping in late August, but the bulk of orders won't be delivered until early to mid September.

We know this later than we planned, but we hope you understand why we decided to make this important improvement.
