Meet The Inventor

Shane Chen founded Inventist so that he could design and manufacture his innovative creations and share them with the world.

Shane ChenInventor
Shane's active lifestyle and an overactive imagination combined to fuel his vision of enhancing the activities he enjoyed -- windsurfing and other water sports, skating, skiing, biking and cooking -- by creating unconventional and easy-to-use equipment. A self-described "tinkerer" from a young age, he holds thirty-three patents. Mr. Chen’s inventions extend beyond sports and fitness to include home electronics and kitchen appliances, such as the FizzSaver, Leantisserie and Alkacharger.
My mission is to develop sports-related products that are genuinely new and fun to use, while adding an element of fitness at the same time. - Shane Chen, Inventor

Lunicycles and Gymnasts
Today we ventured to Naydenov Gymnastics Gym in Vancouver, WA to see if the local gymnasts would be interested in learning to ride our newest product, the Lunicycle. Not only were the girls intrigued; they were ecstatic to ride it!  Seeing these young ladies take to the Lunicycle with ease was astonishing. With minimal direction they were helping each other move across the floor flawlessly. There were definitely a few Lunicycle stars and we can’t wait to meet with them again and see their progress.   We’re hoping that we can get a few talented young ladies and gentlemen for our upcoming national campaigns (more to come soon!) with new retailers and various media outlets.  More Marketing was a New Years Resolution for the company. We’re working on that and SO MUCH MORE! Some very extreme changes are coming soon. Join us for the ride! Check us out on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
