Hammerhead is building the future of cycling by only building products they believe will be the best in their class, and are fully focused on making Karoo 2 the world’s best cycling computer. Hammerhead came to Ambaum in early 2021 looking for a development partner for their website hammerhead.io and to create four new expansion stores in CA, AU, UK and EU.
We initially helped Hammerhead with writing scripts in the Shopify Plus script editor for discounts and custom logic to support various marketing campaigns. Hammerhead utilizes Klaviyo for email marketing automation, which we used to set up promotional emails with unique/dynamic discount code fields.
Prior to working with Ambaum Hammerhead was using a page builder for most pages on their website. We rebuilt their homepage, multiple PDP templates, and tweaked collection templates, and cart using ThemeKit. A major part of the rebuild was creating a new system to sync data across all five stores. We needed to make sure shared data could easily be synced across all five stores, while ensuring store-specific data could be added/updated. We used the US store as the base, deploying to all four expansion stores at once using code, which minimized manual work. Since the website was built pre Shopify 2.0, we utilized metafields on the product detail pages where we used metafields to be able to add, remove and rearrange sections.
As Hammerhead’s development partner, Ambaum has not only helped with maintenance work, but also solutioning future designs, building new custom features, and efficiently deploying data and theme updates across all stores.
