We design high-quality products built for adventure, durability, and extreme functionality.
Why’d we start it?
We also believe in business for good.
We make the sustainable choice in materials whenever possible and do our best to engineer products that last longer.
We are also proud to give 3% of profits from every purchase to nonprofit organizations and causes that do good in the world by providing humanitarian relief or building resilience in local communities.
Thank you for helping make a difference and welcome to the Airo Tribe.
Steve & Jake
Meet our team
CEO, Founder & Inventor
INVENTOR, DESIGNER, DREAMER, THRILL-SEEKER
Steve is the Founder and CEO of Airo Collective, the startup on a mission to recreate the things we carry. Formerly a leader of students as a teacher and pastor, Steve has always thought of ways to help people through innovation, design and engineering. He's a lifelong inventor (his family would say more of a mad scientist?) and assisted in building and designing the largest BMX park in Northern California and has been a founding race team member for Kinetic Cycle since 2009. He loves the outdoors and is also a National Champion gold medalist mountain biker with USA Cup wins.
JAKE VAN VORHIS
TRAVELER, NUMBERS LOVER, PROCESS OPTIMIZER, BELIEVER IN GREAT EXPERIENCES
Jake is the Co-Founder and COO of Airo Collective, the one who keeps the trains running and on time. Jake previously planned and ran operations for a firm in San Francisco managing a portfolio of ~$200m in real estate. Jake is passionate about the beautiful design, the outdoors, and eating amazing food. He loves woodworking and exercise of all kinds and spends a lot of his time in the gym, on a trail, on a bike, in the water, or on a basketball court. He is also a 3rd Degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo - so his friends are always glad to have him around when traveling.
