The vision for dib sports began on a bike ride during my time in University. After graduation, I purchased a one-way ticket to China. The plan was to partner with Asian-based factories for manufacturing extreme sporting goods, however, with limited success overseas, I quickly found myself back in Southern California and living in my parents basement. It was during this time that I pursued the manufacturing of dib bottle, in the United States. My first attempt didn't go too well, I ran into some serious issues, and I had to put the project on hold. I was then fortunate at the time to begin a job at a cycling company through an old friend and worked at a couple of bike brands over the next several years. This was a great experience and I learned a great detail about how the 'industry' operates. Recently, I started back up the development of dib bottle and got to work, again. With some significant changes to the design and exploring different manufacturing processes, everything started to work out. I am proud to say dib bottle is everything I imagined it to be during that bike ride many years ago and I hope you enjoy dib bottle for many rides to come.
