We did our best to deliver within the estimated timeline, however, due to the recent events and Covid-19 pandemic lockdown and having thousands of Kinetic Driver(s) sold instead of a few hundred as we thought, we now expect to be able to start shipping during January 2021. We are really sorry about this, and we would like to thank you for your patience.
We made the most out of the delays by making some changes to the Kinetic Driver. The most important one is a custom-made screw, which holds the Ceramic Bearing in place, instead of having it press-fitted. This allows you to unmount the bearing for maintenance or if it needs be.
You asked, we delivered: the Dark Chromed version is available for everybody (and will be for all backers, you will be able to change color variant while filling the survey). Mind that the Dark Chromed version won't have the laser-etched number nor your name will be on the packaging: these two perks remain exclusive for the Founder's Edition.
Since we plan to start shipping while we assemble, QC (quality control) and package the Kinetic Driver(s), we will slowly start to fulfill the orders as we have Kinetic Drivers ready, so we'll probably be able to ship out about 100 parcels per day, this number coincides with FedEx shipping limits (we're also trying to find different shipping solutions).
Soon, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quicklyas you can since we need this information both to continue the production and to fulfill your rewards.
When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences (the bearing ring(s) color, or what name you want to be written on the box if you backed a Founder's Edition Kinetic Driver), provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like.
After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts: you'll be able to update your shipping information if you need to. When we will close the surveys, you will receive a "final notice" email and you will still have 48 hours to change your survey's answers. After that, the surveys will be locked and the only way to change them will be by contacting us at email@example.com.
If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://kinetic-driver.backerkit.com.
If you used your Facebook or Apple credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook/Apple account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://kinetic-driver.backerkit.com/faq#backer-accounts-faq.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE SURVEY?
We have all set and done but it might take another week before you receive it as we're sending them out in batches to be able to correct any unforeseen bugs or errors.
I STILL CAN'T FIND MY SURVEY!?
Based on our previous experiences, sometimes the survey's emails can end up in your spam or promotion folder. Be sure to check there every now and then if you won't have received your survey yet.
If you have any questions or need support, please remember that the only way to get in touch with us is by writing at firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't monitor any other platform, social or direct messages.
We're working on the real THANK YOU

5105 people didn't need it.
But those same 5105 people wanted to own a Kinetic Driver. I can say "thank you" a billion times but I think the best way to honor your support will be to deliver the best product we can. And we are already at work for that! I'm looking forward to taking you along on this journey (follow "Giaco Whatever" on Instagram and Youtube)!
You will receive the survey via email in the next few weeks so you'll be able to:
Choose the Bearing Ring color.
Add more Kinetic Driver to your pledge.
Add one secret thing we're working on (we're very excited about that).
The Kinetic Driver Dark Chromed Edition
Many of you asked for that, so we decided to offer the Dark Chromed color option! Again, you will be able to choose this color variant while filling out the survey. Mind that this won't be numbered and won't add your name to the packaging, that remains exclusively for the 150 owners of the Founder's Edition.
Thanks to the support of our amazing backers, we've now released some epic new stretch goals and add-ons!
Stretch Goal 1: Passivation Layering
A finishing process to the metal which helps prevent corrosion. Added to all Grips from launch!
Stretch Goal 2: Measurement Markings Add-On
For those that wish to upgrade their Grip with laser marked measurements, a simple additional £5 to your existing pledge amount will get you sorted out with measuring in style, available in Metric or Imperial.
Stretch Goal 3: The Grip Kit
Fulfilling a request of many of our backers, to have a way of storing and protecting the Grip when not in use: Presenting the Grip Kit! Harking back to the turn of the century methods, a traditional leather holder with brass fittings. The Kit also comes with a driver bit (you know, just because) and allen key for servicing.
No More Missing Bits, Forever.

There are only a few things as annoying as having a non-complete set of bits in the workshop.
We need to fix that!
“I Want You Back”
We’re studying a system to let Kinetic Driver owners being able to refurbish their loved set when the bits are ruined, lost, stolen, or “just because"… No questions asked!
We will give you a more precise formula when we have it but the idea, in short, is that the Kinetic Driver comes with a unique code. This will allow you to get an X number of chosen bits for an X number of times, forever.
You would only pay for shipping but you can also combine the bits to a new order from the website. Not only giaco.com but from something else special we’re working on.
We have a very simple marketing strategy: make the products we always wanted in the way we could only dream about.
The “I Want You Back” policy is another step towards that. Some would even say a bit closer.
This turned out incredible!

A big thank you from the team and I! We put a lot of effort and love in this project and having such a high response from you guys has been really incredible! We reached our goal in just nine minutes and received almost 2000% of the goal in the first 20 hours! We are speechless!
We wanted to share with you some backstory of how the Kinetic Driver was born, you can find the video of the very first Kinetic Driver below :)
The prototypes we showed in the pictures and video were thought for a smaller production but with this kind of response, we now have the opportunity to make it even better.
We are already working on some little details here and there, improving the Kinetic Driver as much as we can, so expect more updates in the near future. At this very moment, we're working on adding a custom made screw to hold the bearing so it would be easier to change it for maintenance or if needs be. At the moment it's press-fitted and would be troubling to change it without a press and a special jig.
It looks like we're going to reach 300000€ very soon and this will allow us to announce a very good feature we're working on. Stay tuned! Remember that to get all kind of updates, the best way is to follow me on:
