OUR STORY

 

FOMO began as a final year project of founder and Managing Director, Carmen Cummiskey, while studying sports engineering at Strathclyde University.  Horse riding had been a large part of her life, participating in a variety of events, including dressage, show jumping and showing.  Having suffered a couple of serious falls over the years, Carmen promised to wear a body protector to ensure she had maximum protection and to avoid any further injuries.  However, she felt it was uncomfortable to wear, too warm and restrictive and if anything, made her feel more unsafe.  A good decade on, with a lack of real innovation in sport, Carmen decided to design something to inspire rider confidence and ability in the saddle, and hence FOMO was born.

We are currently a team of 8 including two sports engineers.  Committed to designing and creating innovative products, we are always pushing ourselves to think outside the box to create exciting products for our customers and are proud to already being the winner of several awards.
