Who we are
Offroam's purpose evolved out of direct experience (to date) of the founders and the minimalist values they live by. It just so happens to be the way we have done things, even before we started Offroam. We are still a young brand (and young entrepreneurs) and we suspect we have a lot more to learn.
1. Design products that customers love and actually use
2. Make products that minimize their impact on environment by being useful for as long as possible
We care to build only lasting products that age gracefully and remain useful for as long as possible. We encourage our customers to consume less by making long lasting products. We hope that every Offroam customer will never have to buy another phone holder for their vehicle again.
3. Harness the power of good design in business
We charge a simple, fair price for our products and the support the products come with - every day. We do not inflate the price only to offer a discount tomorrow. Because our stock does not become obsolete, our products do not go on a seasonal sale.
We do believe that business is the best platform for change that we’ve got. This belief was shaped by our volunteering work in Kenya that showed us the power entrepreneurship has to build stronger communities. On the basis of this belief, we are proud to offer discounts to employees that educate, protect and keep our communities healthy.
In 2018, Dmitri & Alex packed their small car and moved to the West Coast to chase their dreams of exploring remote locations and be closer to nature. A few months after after the move, the couple decided to share their love for California with others and founded a 4x4 adventure vehicle company - Cypress Overland.
With this venture, they learned quickly that the able hands of vehicle renters have a unique ability to break just about any piece of adventure gear, especially those flimsy plastic phone holders. After trying just about every phone holder on the market, they did exactly what any sensible engineers would do: spend 5 months designing and testing a little clamp that grabs onto the dash like Alex Honnold to the edge of El Capitan.
Alex & Dmitri poured all the proceeds from Cypress Overland into their new invention (dubbed The Clamp), asking fellow overlanders and adventurers to take a chance on the new little product. Very quickly the 5-star reviews started coming in as the product proved to be popular in the community.
