KNEKT was a passion project started in October 2013 by Kyle Maligro, Bodi Orton and Harry Antipala. Three long time friends with a love for the ocean and innovative design. The company was always about quality products, fun and shared experiences.
That foundation allowed us create an entirely new category of products for the GoPro camera. We designed and released the first pistol grip trigger, a product so innovative it was granted two patents by the USPTO. We then went on to change the game completely by designing the first dome port for the GoPro housing. The KNEKT Dome Port has created iconic images shared by the most prestigious web and print publications in the world. This was followed by other firsts like the trigger activated dive tray and trigger pole. All of those accomplishments would be meaningless without the joy and community that they created. More than a brand KNEKT became a family. A Family of people around the world that are passionate about their experiences and environment.
Now after five years plus of fun and innovation we have decided to wind it down and discontinue manufacturing. KNEKT was always a passion project but life outside of that passion has gotten to busy for us to keep it going.
We have all of the design drawings, a registered trademark, two patents, website with eCommerce, large social media following with over 200,000 hash tagged images and a database of brand loyal passionate customers. While we are not shopping for someone to take it over if there was interest from the right source we would entertain brand acquisition or licensing.
With gratitude and aloha,
The boys at KNEKT
