About Oben

You're On Steady Ground
Some brands are born in a boardroom, others in the mind. Oben, was born in the field, on accumulation of practical experiences, surveys, and rigorous testing. Our goal is to build and provide support systems that are developed based on real world needs and experiences.

Before any product is designed, field-research is conducted on all types of supports so that we can gather info on the features that are most needed, and assess the challenges professionals typically face while in the field. The development of Oben support products, then seeks to address the challenges, and offer the best in user features.

Once a support item has been created, it goes back in the field, for real-world testing, ensuring it can stand up to the harshest of production environments. Once adjustments are made to the production line, our supports are ready for market use. However, the development doesn't end there. We continuously test all of our supports – even those in market – to ensure the highest standards of quality.

Oben constantly seeks out the best in quality materials, so that our supports are durable, lightweight, and easy to operate. Whether it's high-grade aluminum, or lightweight carbon fiber, we're so confident in our supports, that they're backed by our company standard 5 year warranty. To complete the package, all support systems come with detailed User Manuals that offer step-by-step guidance on proper usage.

Ultimately, our goal is to ensure the products that bear the Oben name, can live up to it, and truly rise above the rest.
