ABOUT FLATED

The great outdoors offers endless possibilities for enjoyment, whether that’s riding the open road into the sunset or savoring a coastal breeze with the windows down. But great adventures also call for road-worthy equipment. Comfort and convenience are essential if you want to avoid unnecessary hassle and expense that can prevent you from being able to pack up and go. Our mission is to give fellow road nomads an affordable and durable way to outfit their current vehicles with the endless options that FLATED’s creative construction affords.

Simply put, we are pioneering innovative inflatable vehicle products to make travel better. Our quest is made possible by utilizing proven inflatable drop-stitch materials combined with new design implementations to bring the ultimate road worthy automotive accessories. The Air-Carrier is the perfect solution for those big family road trips or a special gift for the new parents needing to haul so much more around town. The Air-Topper is designed to be rigid enough to strap gear (or an Air-Carrier) right to the roof and tall enough to comfortably sleep under. Speaking of comfort, the Air-Deck makes sleeping in your vehicle a breeze. Our products make it easy to explore with the whole family — including pets thanks to the Air-Chalet.

We appreciate you stopping to take a look at our FLATED® designs. Take a moment to imagine how we might help you simplify your road-trip adventures, and we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or comments. Our entire team is a group of travelers, outdoor lovers, pet people, and all around seekers of fun, and we gladly work hard on these designs so that you can relax and enjoy them!

Cheers to your next adventure,

The FLATED Team

INNOVATION BY EXPERIENCE

Our team is known for working hard in order to play hard. Life is about adventure, travel, fun and all of our products are based off of gear that we personally use. From the Rocky Mountains to the coasts we are always up for the next great invite to do something cool. At Flated we "Work hard, and play hard".

LESS MOLDED PLASTIC IN THE WORLD

We started by identifying bulky products that traditionally have been made with molded plastic, Yes we are calling out the bulky plastic or composite cargo and truck toppers. Items that take up a ton of space and one day will be taking up the same amount of space in a landfill. Then we asked ourselves... Could it be FLATED?
