New product introduction

Gerard Vroomen - 31-Mar-2017
Andy and I are very excited to launch a new OPEN product today, one day ahead of schedule! The idea came to us during the CrossFondue ride and we've been chomping at the bit to share it with you ever since. But instead of writing a long story here, just check the video with all the information and then see all the offerings in the online store:

Funny. And it's not even April Fool's Day. Keep 'em coming.

According to Nature Inc, somewhere in their 3D environment it's already April 1.

Yes you can, you can set the environment for any specific time of day and the ZPEED app will then update to that setting within 24 hours.

That is mind blowing indeed. How do you guys handle patch upgrades though? :-)

Security updates will be posted right here in the UPDATES section and will include gems such as "Look out for cars" and "Lock your bike when you stop for coffee".

We always say we introduce new products when they are ready, in this case it was ready a bit early. Although technically, on the other side of the date line, it's April already.

Yes, and we cannot guarantee your personalized Shtick will look exactly as shown in the online store.

Meh, no mention of 'rain' or 'mud'. This is obviously a beta version, think I'll wait for a later release... :0)

I went outside once, and, you know, the graphics were quite amazing. It was almost as good as VR on my computer...

This is amazing! I noticed you are already future proofed for the upcoming HD formats! Also, thanks for so quickly incorporating the snow feature for the Toronto simulation.

Well this is very compelling, technology for everyman! I was just wondering if the ZTICK is retro usable for other Open models or only available in this App? Seems to me this could be your finest technology yet;-)

Freaking awesome. Riding , running, skiing are about being outside in Nature. Not in gyms in sweaty groups looking at more screens that dominate everyone's life. It's time away from the screen ! Perfect Get the kids outside

Congratulations on releasing version 1.0. Have you worked out subscription pricing yet? How about 5 €/month with free updates?

No, this environment is part of the sharing economy. It's all free forever. Except for a small part which is my garden, there I'll charge.

Already tried the app and really liked it, except the crash module. Can't find out how to turn it off.

It's important to log out at least one of your feet early enough to avoid activating the crash module.

Hi Bence, the Shtick is a cellulose-resin composite. And yes, the APP can crash if you log in incorrectly or if you forget to log out when you're done. We recommend starting it back up as quickly as possible to avoid long-term trauma.
