On Location: Tucson, Part I


There are options in Tucson. Long a spot for winter cycling escape, training camps, and inexpensive post-ride burritos, Tucson owns bits road racing lore. Today, Tucson offers up adventure rides and gravel roads, available without driving. It bears a new flavor of community and an accessible scene that invites any who love to ride. We took to the roads of Pima County for our Spring / Summer 2020 launch riding Park Link Road, Gates Pass and the venerable Mount Lemmon.

Park Link Drive

There is a gradual climb on Park Link road that lasts 18 miles. No traffic. No billboards. No services, just a quiet meditation on riding and a pedal through the desert.

S/S '20

For 2020, we took every piece of feedback, every design note, every piece of material review and reconsidered all of our pieces. With visual designs that aim to capture the moment in cycling: organic, clean and representing an ethic of adventure, our Spring / Summer 2020 Collection is the realization of everything we've learned to make riding better.
