The inventors of the world's first inflatable truck topper and other automotive accessories!
Missoula, MT (February 21, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – FLATED, the company behind the world’s first inflatable truck topper and other inflatable automotive accessories, is set to showcase their products and brand vision on ABC’s popular and Emmy Award-winning “Shark Tank” program. The FLATED founders will present their products in front of five of the world’s top investors, giving them the opportunity to elevate their brand in front of a national audience. The segment is scheduled to air on Friday, March 10th from 8:00/9:00p.m. ET/PT on ABC Television Network.
“We’ve always been fans of Shark Tank, so when the opportunity came to apply to be on the show, we jumped on it,” said Ryan Guay, FLATED CEO and co-founder. “We’re extremely proud of our product and brand vision, and we’ve spent the last year trying to keep up with demand. We expect huge growth in 2023, with more sizes and new products coming out.”
FLATED was conceived in March 2020 during the pandemic lockdown by four outdoor industry veterans – Monique, Keefer, Ken Hoeve, Dan Watts, and Ryan Guay. The idea was to use drop stitch inflatable technology, the same material used in inflatable paddleboards and kayaks, to create usable space on automobiles. The FLATED Air-Topper is the world’s first inflatable truck cap that can easily inflate and be installed in minutes, and weighs less than 65 lbs. The FLATED Air-Carrier is the world’s first inflatable rooftop cargo carrier that can be mounted on almost all vehicles to carry luggage and gear for your next road trip adventure.
Currently, FLATED sells their products directly from their website, REI.com, and other specialty automotive retailers. Their innovative product mix helped land them a spot on “Shark Tank,” and they are prepared for the next round of growth.
