About Pandle

Our Story

During his morning commute one morning, Brooklyn native Jason Yakubovich stood on the NYC subway and looked at the moist pole he was holding with his sweaty hand. He asked himself:

How many people touched this pole before I held onto it? How many germs are on my hand right now?

So Pandle was created

Germs Everywhere

In 2013, the NYC subway handled 1.7 billion rides. It's one of the world's oldest public transportation systems - and dirtiest. This phenomenon is not unique to the NYC subway; there are billions of public surfaces that are breading grounds for microbes that can make you sick.

Development Starts

Yukubovich’s team spent nine months crafting the perfect blend of rubber, antibacterial solution, and grip performance for maximum comfort and protection. What resulted is a product Yukubovich is both proud to use and provide to others.

Pandle Funded & Launched

With a final product, Yakubovich launched a Kickstarter campaign in February 2015. The campaign goals were met within a month! Now anyone can use Pandle to protect themselves from germs crawling on surfaces everywhere.
