Installation Video and Shipping Progress

Hi Backers!


We have been working hard to get your orders built, packed, and shipped. We have boxed up almost 900 seatposts and have already shipped close to 1/3rd of your orders! We hope to have everything shipped out in a matter of weeks and, as we have noted, are fulfilling in order by backer number - so, if you backed towards the end of the campaign, it won't be long now.


Check out this time-lapse showing how we pack the seatpost.

We also created a video that walks through the seatpost installation and setup which you can check out below - also, please be sure to review the written instructions that came in the box as well.

If you have received your seatpost already we'd love your feedback. Tag us on facebook and instagram or email us - we can't wait to hear from you!

And if you have any questions, issues, or need anything at all please email us at support@redshiftsports.com - this is the fastest way to get in touch with us and we strive to respond to every email asap.
 

Thanks!

Fulfillment Progress & Packaging Reveal
4 months ago – Thu, Oct 24, 2019 at 01:28:55 AM

Hi Backers!

By now, many early backers have received shipping confirmation emails and your seatposts are on the way. If you have not gotten a shipping confirmation email yet don't worry, we are working as fast as we can to get posts built, boxed, and out the door.

Orders are mostly locked, so if you have not verified your address you should check right away (you can check backerkit here).

Now back to shipping - we are super excited to unveil the packaging design for the seatpost:

But more importantly, here is the crew hard at work packing up all your seatposts and preparing them for shipment.

Don't forget to check out our Instagram stories for assembly and packing videos! @redshiftsports.

We will post more updates as things move along but keep in mind it will take a few weeks to get all 2200+ orders packed and shipped. And as always, if you have any questions or need anything don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@redshiftsports.com.

Thanks!

Shipping Starts Soon! + Assembly Pics
5 months ago – Wed, Oct 02, 2019 at 09:15:33 PM

Hi Backers!

Shipping will be starting soon so thank you to everyone who confirmed/updated their shipping address. Anyone who has not yet verified their address, please do so soon (you can check backerkit here). We have given everyone a few more days before we lockdown orders so plan to make any changes ASAP.

Its hard to believe, but you all ordered more than 2300 Seatposts and 675 Stems (not to mention all the accessories)! We have our full team working super hard, but as you can imagine it takes a lot of time to inspect, assemble, test, pack, and ship all those orders. Please bear with us as we get your orders put together and in the mail :)

Shipping Schedule:

  • Shipping is scheduled to begin the week of Oct 14th!
  • We will ship out rewards in order by backer number
  • Each seatpost is assembled by hand and requires 27 individual steps. As you can imagine, this takes a while and when you add in the inspection and testing of each unit and the process of packing and shipping, getting all your orders out the door will take weeks.
  • We will of course keep everyone posted on shipping progress so that you will know when you can expect your order

We will also be contacting everyone who opted for prepaid VAT (EU only) to arrange the tax payment prior to shipping those orders.


Assembly Update:

Its all hands on deck at our workspace in Philadelphia where we are in full swing with assembly. While we are certainly focused on working quickly we are also making sure that every seatpost comes out great. 

Below are some pictures of the team and the inspection/assembly process. Additionally, check out our instagram stories for some fun assembly videos! @redshiftsports

The boxes just keep coming

Plunger, lower, and rear linkages ready for assembly
1000 Lower Linkages Inspected and Ready to Go

We will post another update as shipping begins. As always, if you have any questions or need anything don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@redshiftsports.com.

Thanks!
