“As Guerrilla Gravity continues to design and improve our layups, Altair will continue to provide value in developing the strongest layups possible while also finding opportunities for additional weight reductions, which, with carbon fiber means raw material cost savings.”
– Will Montague
Co-Founder, Guerrilla Gravity
“Without the use of OptiStruct it is estimated that we would be 3-4 months behind schedule with a lower performing frame. Making sure that we were able to make it through our scheduled laboratory testing without error was crucial to launching our product on time. Without OptiStruct we would have gone into testing with many more unknowns and would have likely arrived at a much heavier frame solution in order to remain on schedule. The ability to iterate and optimize in a significantly shortened timeline allowed our startup to become cash flow positive on schedule. We think Revved is at the forefront of bike frame
material technology and Altair will help us keep it there.”
The manufacturing efficiency of Revved Carbon Technology represents an entire sea of opportunities that can be applied to different applications. Over the next few years, Guerrilla Gravity will continue building and refining its manufacturing infrastructure to take advantage of the growing opportunities.
Altair Startup Program
Altair’s startup program decreased Guerrilla Gravity’s barrier to entry that is typically held by advanced software costs. Montague notes, “Without their startup program, the software would have been out of reach for us at our current size and budget.”
