Designing, constructing and delivering the Grasshopper was an incredible challenge and journey for everyone involved. After countless setbacks and delays, our small team managed to produce a world-class product without compromise. Our approach was totally unconventional and continually pushed us to make the Grasshopper better. We custom designed every part and chose to do things the right way rather than the fast way.
Next week we begin on-demand delivery of Hopper Labs products. Over the past two years, fast delivery was a goal knowing we had dedicated customers waiting patiently to receive a unit. The final retail prices of $200.00 for the Stainless Steel and $250.00 for the Titanium and Color will accompany this progress. At these prices, we are more competitive with the market, able to offer a better product, better warranty service, and a better experience. From the rounded off pricing (no 199.99) to the mechanical design and lifetime warranty, the Grasshopper is meant to show how products can be more about the customer than profits.
Hopper Labs, as a whole, is a unique entity in the consumer product world. Design, development, and production all happen in a single place under the guidance of a small team. Such close-knit ties between hardware and software, design and production create an environment where more is possible. We handle our distribution, warranty and customer service, so you are never dealing with a stranger. Our products are built in the USA, and in-house wherever possible. Hopper Labs remains a 100% founder owned company, having taken no outside investment.
So, next time you are out using the Grasshopper, think of the time and care that went into all its details.
