Tour of smiles…

Before the International Seating Symposium (ISS) earlier this year—when life was altogether different—we photographed a quick tour of Ride Designs to show in our booth.

Those who visit in person are always amazed by the amount of space, extent of equipment, and the number of dedicated team members that it takes to do what we do. Relatively few people actually make the trip to see us in Colorado, so this quick view of “The Ride Experience” was designed to highlight what happens behind the scenes.

Looking at the video now, we’re struck by all the smiles that we miss seeing on a daily basis due to current Covid-19 mask protocols… So it seemed like the perfect time to put this out there for everyone to see.

Enjoy the tour — and keep smiling, even if it’s hidden by a mask these days! (We’ll look for the tell-tale sparkle in your eyes and those little wrinkle lines around the edges…)

Please note that in better times we do welcome visitors. Ride Custom Certification Courses are debuting again this month with a significantly smaller group of participants — and in a socially distanced manner.

Remember… smiling not only offers a mood boost but helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins that provide lots of health benefits, including helping to:

    • Reduce blood pressure
    • Increase endurance
    • Reduce pain
    • Reduce stress
    • Strengthen immune system

We’re starting another collection of photos to document our masked moments… Be well!

Ride Designs is debuting an even simpler way to order the Ride Custom AccuSoft™ Cushion –- by using a Java Cushion as an evaluation tool. (Learn more about AccuSoft here.)

When appropriate, this easy and time-saving method can replace the bead bag and vacuum pump method. Check out this brief video tutorial.

Detailed information, including frequently-asked questions and answers, is available here.

New cushion materials are being used in the new Ride Custom AccuSoft Cushion.

How are these materials different from the Ride Custom 2 Cushion materials? Do you know the difference between open and closed cell foams?
