Ayrtek was started back in 2007 as a vehicle to progress the air technology that was originally designed within a cricket glove as part of my dissertation. Using the “air-tech” this IP was transferred into a cricket helmet liner that allowed one helmet to fit multiple head sizes by pumping air into the liner. This not only meant extreme comfort levels but also a vast improvement in impact absorption properties too.

In 2016 I purchased the cricket side of the business from the parent company that I originally founded in order to run Ayrtek Cricket Limited as a stand-alone entity. Whilst the patent for the air liner was developed for use in other sports and markets. This has enabled me to develop products that had previously been shelved due to other projects and priorities.

Ayrtek Cricket Limited is able to design, develop and innovate within the sports sector to bring a range of products to the market under its own brand name once again.
