Ron Laikind, CEO/Founder/Inventor of Extreme Mist

Rick talks with Ron Laikind this week on “Tech of Sports.” Ron is the CEO and founder of Extreme Mist and has a great story to tell about what he came up with during COVID-19.

Extreme Mist Personal Cooling System:

Extreme Mist Portable Sanitizing System:

He also loves extreme endeavors. Ron has hiked the globe from the Sahara to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, Siberia, Turkey, the Himalayas, India, Cashmere, Pakistan, Thailand, Asia, Vietnam, Cambodia, South America, Patagonia, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Yosemite and more. He’s hiked tens of thousands of miles.

In addition to hiking, he enjoys sky diving, motorized paragliding, motor sports including motorcycling, and open-air vehicles among his loves as well as gold mining and collecting arrowheads and antiques. He also owns a paint ball studio in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Laikind was challenged when on the trail. He wanted to stay hydrated and cool without carrying a tremendous amount of extra weight on his back. He invited the Extreme Mist Personal Cooling System (PCS) to beat the heat and keep cool while exercising (hiking, fishing, camping, cycling, running, etc.)

Then, during COVID-19, he pivoted and retrofitted Extreme Mist to the Extreme Mist Portable Sanitizing System to disinfect cars, gyms, homes, offices and more.

Ron is an awesome guest and great to have him on “Tech of Sports.”
