Sports equipment category is one of the most diverse categories in industrial design. The first thing that comes to mind is sports equipment used in a gym, stadium or fitness center, however it covers a multitude of products that span the entire lifestyle. You can get sports products in your kitchen (such as sports bottles, see Cirkul), or products you use in your living room, car, school, office. The range and limitation is endless.
While we tackle product development the design mostly works in tandem with the functionality of the product. New sports products near you are in the hundreds if not thousands. Just look around and see how many products there are on Amazon, Dicks Sporting goods, Ebay and so on. The industry is immense.
