About Us "", 1
Being based in West Palm Beach, Florida, bike rides to the beach were nearly a daily occurrence for us. Although we loved biking to the beach, bringing everything with us was becoming a hassle.
We wanted to be able to hop on our bikes and easily cruise to the beach without the hassle of all of the usual bulky equipment. You know the culprits: the chair with the big square frame, the bag stuffed with sunscreen and drinks, and a hefty beach towel. But once we arrived, we realized that we were without the things that make a beach day enjoyable.
We noticed that others at the beach had a similar dilemma, having to choose between either a backpack or a chair. If they had chosen both, it wasn’t a pretty sight - sound familiar? This is where the idea for Bumruk was born. Our goal was to create something that is as comfortable and convenient as our favorite backpacks, has the added usability of a chair, and … doesn’t look or feel like you are carrying a Tommy Bahama on your back.
Since then, we have been working our bums off daily to turn this idea into a reality. After months of research and testing various materials, we created our first prototype, made improvements, sourced manufacturing, and are now ready to share the bumruk with you.
