Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is the beverage going to be affected by contacting the lid?

A: Not at all. As with any travel mug, the liquid is in constant contact with the cup and occasionally splashes into the lid. There is no difference between being in contact with the cup or the lid. The occasions when the lid is partially immersed in the liquid make no difference to the beverage, but a huge difference in terms of convenience.

Q: Is it possible that the cup will overflow when you twist on the lid?

A: No. Because we optimized the cavity with a narrower shape toward the bottom, the volume displaced is kept to a minimum. Tests confirm that the liquid level rises less than a millimeter when the lid is applied.

Q: Can the hot liquid burn your nose through the lid?

A: Absolutely not. The liquid touches the lid only when the cup is at its fullest, when little tilting is required. By the time the nose enters the cavity during tilting, the liquid has long since receded below the contact level.

Q: Since some space is taken up under the lid, will the liquid spill more?

A: No. We created special compartments under the lid to absorb splashes and make the cup effectively spill-resistant.

Q: Does this design actually reduce spills? How?

A: Yes. The most spill-prone direction in which a mug can be shaken is in line with the open sip hole. This is because a mini-wave from the opposite side increases its strength while traveling toward the sip hole. In our case, the central concavity of the lid acts as breakwater against such sloshes, keeping the wave from fully developing.

About Us

Since 2009, Revollex has been committed to promoting new, revolutionary ideas for products that make our lives easier and more enjoyable. AIR Cup is the perfect example of achieving this goal. This new cup, as simple as it is practical, results from years of changing, refining, and sometimes discarding everything and starting again from scratch. We wanted to offer new features without sacrificing the convenience that people are used to in traditional lidded cups.

Sipping from an open cup – that’s the comfort and freedom we hoped to emulate, allowing you to drink in comfort without tilting your head back. Our self-imposed challenges were to avoid increasing the size of the cup and to position the sip hole for an optimal experience. As we worked, other nifty elements were added, like the raisers on the top that prevent the sip hole from touching a contaminated surface, and single wall construction that lets steaming liquids reach a drinkable temperature sooner.

As the end result of this work, AIR Cup is an optimal product and a pleasure to use every day. It’s a perfect illustration of our belief that technology can blend harmoniously with our surroundings and experiences. Rather than users having to adapt to a product, the product should be adapted to the user. We consider the additional time and effort to accomplish this well worth it, so we can both maximize the customer’s enjoyment and fulfill our company’s objective.


“The Air Cup feels like the perfect travel mug – only better!  Even before you take a sip, you can sense its shape and texture to be somehow “just right.”  But what really blows me away every time is that first sip.  Something’s missing!  That unpleasant feeling of a lid pressing on my nose is something I’ve almost come to expect, but with the Air Cup, there’s none of it!  I’m free to breathe and drink with my head level, exactly as if I were sipping from an open cup, but without the risk of spills. It’s like the best of both worlds.” – Louisa P.
“I didn’t realize how habitual the head tilt is when drinking a covered cup of tea until I took my first sip from the Air cup. I naturally tilted my head back then I realized I didn’t need to do that or take my eyes off my companion. During my second sip, I never broke eye contact and recognized how sweet this cup really is! I really like the clean look of the white cup and the wrap keeps my hands comfortable but lets me know when my drink is still too hot to drink. This is a great new concept and I will buy them as gifts for friends and family.” – Katie B., Seattle
“I LOVE this cup!!! I never imagined how convenient not having to tilt your head back could be. It is like taking my favorite mug I use at home on the go. Really! Also, I hate getting burned by my coffee which takes so long to cool down when I put it in any of the insulated mugs I own. That’s why I like paper cups but I don’t like the waste. Air Cup allows the drink to cool quickly to just the right temp in order for me to sip without hurting myself. Looks like they thought of everything! I highly recommend it!” – Lorna P., Seattle
“I’m a huge coffee drinker and never gave much thought to how uncomfortable and awkward it was using a standard travel mug. But then a friend lent me a Revollex Air Cup and I’m blown away. The Air Cup lid has a cavity for my nose, which allows the cup to tilt but not my head. Such a huge difference! Now I can fully focus on the road and my task. You really have to give it a try.” – Michael K., Atlanta
