ABOUT CANYON COOLERS
BORN FROM THE RIVER, BUILT FOR ADVENTURE
Rafting the Grand Canyon’s 225 miles takes weeks to complete. Keeping supplies on ice in 100 degree temperatures for that length of time was nearly impossible with commercially available coolers. Rafting companies experimented with fiberglass containers and later started using the durable kayak plastic making crude double walled boxes and insulating them with expanding foam. Although rudimentary, the thick walled heavy duty coolers could hold up to the elements and were referred to as “Canyon Boxes”.

In 2010 two local rafting enthusiasts in Flagstaff, Arizona acquired and re-branded what is today known as Canyon Coolers. Rafters were soon enjoying cold beverages throughout 27 day trips. Since then, they have developed enhanced seals, latches, and other innovations, while maintaining the heavy duty durability and insulating capabilities that started it all. New sizing and color options coupled with an easy to use website are making ridiculously tough, seriously cold coolers at a reasonable price available to everyone.

Today Canyon Coolers are being utilized nationwide by a loyal following of hunters, rafters, outdoorsmen, and a major Southern California university hospital’s blood donor center.

RC4WD – Official Sponsor & Vendor AXIALFEST 2017

news_axialfestsponsor_rc4wd_500px
Axial RC Inc. is proud to announce RC4WD as a returning official sponsor for AXIALFEST 2017!

ABOUT RC4WD
RC4WD has been a global leader in high end scale automotive model products for over 14 years, headquartered in Silicon Valley. Founded in 2001 in the San Francisco Bay Area, RC4WD was initially started as a one stop shop (website) for the RC monster truck aftermarket and performance parts. The business grew rapidly through the help of RCMT.net, a forum community dedicated to the RC monster truck enthusiasts. The owner quickly gained an in depth knowledge of what the consumer was looking for, and developed relationships with all the top manufacturers of aftermarket parts. His extensive networking abilities gave him the opportunity to manufacture some components for the companies whose parts and kits he was selling.

In 2005, the business was thriving, stocking nearly 800 parts from companies like Thundertech Racing, JPS, New Era Models, Imex, Defiance Racing, RC Alloy, Vertigo performance and many others. Up until 2006 RC4WD was a one man operation, when business was booming the RC4WD founder employed the help of his friends and family to keep up with the orders. 2006 was a pivotal year, as a college friend of the owners dropped his full time job in effort to help build RC4WD into a force to be reckoned with. Like many companies suffering growing pains, RC4WD and crew rented a small garage unit without amenities such as air conditioning or functioning windows. Working through the California heat in these conditions did not detour the owner from building his dreams. In the summer of 2006 RC4WD reached another milestone as he was seeing a significant shift in the market place. The demand for specialized rock crawling products was emerging, and there appeared to be a lack of interest from some of the manufacturers in filling this demand. Perhaps the owner just had the foresight of what the market was going to do, either way a decision was made. RC4WD scaled back on their distribution of other companies products and began to focus on delivering exactly what the enthusiast community was asking for. The RC4WD manufacturing company was born. This stage was the most difficult, as engineering, manufacturing, sales, and marketing staff had to be hired to make it all work. RC4WD now controls all facets of its products, including engineering, manufacturing, sales, marketing, and customer service.

RC4WD now has designers on almost every continent developing the latest and greatest products to suit your RC crawling needs. The last few years have brought about some extremely detailed products catering to the “Scaler” segment of RC rock crawling. It is not uncommon to see an RC vehicle clad with RC4WD products that requires a second look to know if you are looking at a scale model, or at the real thing.

RC4WD products have been chosen by NASA and made many appearances in TV and magazines throughout the world. The company has contributed parts for the fastest battery-powered radio controlled car. The RC4WD team would like to thank each and every customer, contributor, and dealer for their continued support, feedback, and ideas, they have all helped to shape RC4WD into what it is today! The owner and the RC4WD family will continue to strive to bring to market high quality products that answer the demand of the consumer. www.rc4wd.com
