Tony DuPont » Founder & Chief Engineer » E-mail

Tony DuPont is a member of the Sault Ste Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians and was raised on the side of Moscow Mountain in Idaho. He sold soda pop at University of Idaho football games as a kid, bought the most expensive bike in town and promptly disassembled it on the floor of the garage. Tony has always been drawn to science, mechanical systems, creating and building. He studied mechanical engineering at the University of Idaho and then worked as a lead engineer in manufacturing and mining technology, and managed a Superfund cleanup site.

Tony started Io DuPont, LLC in 2004 to pursue his own research and development full time. The first product his new company introduced was a synthetic fiber cable system for bicycles called Power Cordz. The cables are used by professional racers in every major cycling discipline—even (unofficially) racing in the Beijing Olympics. His current project, an infinitely variable transmission (IVT) that uses positively engaged forces to be incredibly efficient and fully scalable, achieved proof of concept in the spring of 2010 and is moving quickly through the final stages of development.
