JDID delivered 986 Pro-SHIRT production units, the first bladder-based cooling undergarment designed, tailored and engineered specifically for race drivers, to market in less than 6 months!
COCKPIT TEMPERATURES OFTEN EXCEED 130ºF
Our order was to design, engineer and develop a wearable product to bring temperature controlling water to the race driver’s body. We evaluated the then segment leaders and generated all new product requirements that, when met, would deliver a performance factor of 5X. We took a completely new approach to solving this problem and leveraged previously unused technologies in our industrial design solution.
Our design is supported by intellectual property, generated and supplied to 986 in the forms of a game-changing feature set, top-tier product design, and targeted execution. Additionally, 986 completed a favorable acquisition by world-renowned motorsport brand MOMO.
