Air Cup eliminates head tilting by creating an ideal airspace in the lid to accommodate the nose without increasing the size of the cup. Every single angle has been optimized to perfection and many new features added that make Air Cup a pleasure to use every day.
Finally you can enjoy a comfortable open-cup feeling and the freedom to look ahead while walking, browsing, or driving.
Get to know your cup and all the great new features it has to offer.
A. Concave lid accommodates nose to eliminate head tilting and also acts as a breakwater to reduce spills.
B. Finger grip indentations offer extra grip power for the easy-twist lid.
C. Raised spacers prevent the sip hole from touching surfaces when you set the lid top-side down.
D. Single wall construction provides just the right amount of thermal insulation.
E. Sleek exterior incorporates a low profile insulating sleeve with underlying air pockets that lets you sense the drink’s temperature.
F. Optimally sized sip hole is positioned closer to the rim, allowing an easy flow that reminds you of an open cup.
G. Two vents placed discretely toward the back of the lid are slightly elongated on the underside to reduce spills.
H. Oversized compartments provide splash relief, allowing additional space to absorb sloshes when the cup is moved.
AIR Cup is your ideal all-around cup for work, play, or on the go.
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.
