Sports Mechanic: Helping Athletes Discover Sports Innovations through Collaborative Platform

Source: The Sports Mechanic


PHILADELPHIA – A newly launched collaborative marketplace is changing the way sporting goods are bought and sold by bringing together innovators and athletes in one interactive platform.  This unique approach has never been seen before in the World Wide Web, and is creating a whole new dynamic that can revolutionize the sporting goods industry.

Innovations from emerging sporting goods businesses often go unnoticed until big brands copy the designs with their own tweaks. In many cases, many innovations that could help athletes improve performance remain unknown to those who might benefit from them, taking away time and potential in considerable proportions. Sports Mechanic seeks to change these dynamics and create a marketplace where athletes, coaches, and trainers can discover sports innovations and interact with innovators.

Unlike other online stores, Sports Mechanic presents not only the features and specifications of each product, but also the story and the people behind it. This offers insight about how a need became an idea, and how that idea was forged into a product that solves the need.  This background on the product’s discovery or invention helps athletes and coaches identify and relate to products in different ways. Customers can also interact with the innovators in real time to ask questions.

Budding innovators often do not have the resources to advertise and gain sufficient exposure in the vast market, and many of these innovations bearing the potential to enhance athletic performance are left in the corner waiting to be discovered. The lack of exposure for these innovative brands is also the reason why athletes have a hard time finding better alternatives to what is already in the market.

"Imagine a marketplace where emerging brands can showcase their goods, innovations in sporting goods can flourish, and buyers can interact with their makers. Imagine a community of people with shared passion building each other up. That's what we are offering you here at The Sports Mechanic," COO Kevin Dailey says.

Sports Mechanic launched its marketplace during the Fall of 2016 and is inviting vendors and buyers to explore, experience, and build this community together.
