The Useful Life of the Pico - FAQs

We wanted to provide an update regarding the useful life of the Pico as it relates  to the date of manufacture. For 2019 inventory, the useful life of the Pico is six years from its date of purchase. For 2020 inventory and on, the useful life of the Pico is six years from its date of manufacture.


Why did we make this change for 2019 inventory? 

Due to the pandemic, a portion of our 2019 inventory rolled over into the following year. This inventory is brand new and unused. Furthermore, the Pico was designed without the use of certain materials, such as PU foams, which can break down even when not in use. As a result, we made the decision to make the start of the useful life of our 2019 Picos the date of purchase.
