For us, bikes are about getting deep into the backcountry in search of epic campsites, or border-hopping through distant parts of the world. They’re about getting off the pavement and out of the comfort zone: climbing mountains, crossing rivers, and traversing deserts. They’re about scratches, dents, and scars, and the stories behind them. They’re about seeing places that can't be seen any other way.
It doesn't matter if you have a brand new, high-tech machine or an old beater you bought off craigslist. Once you're out there riding, it's about where you go and the experiences you have. A few years ago I (Pete) was on some dirt road in Northwestern Argentina and I ran into three kids from the Netherlands taking a break under a tree. They were on beat-up old 125cc bikes they'd bought for a few hundred dollars, and they were picking their way through South America headed for the States. At that moment, on that road, under that tree: nobody cares what kind of bike you're on. It's about the moment, the place, and the people around you; it's about the riding experience itself.
We aim to improve that experience. We started this business with a basic question: why is there such a large gap between the quality of gear we use in other outdoor sports - like backcountry skiing, backpacking, cycling, and climbing - and the gear available for our bikes? Moto gear requires a unique balance between durability and weight, but the fundamental needs are the same: tough, weight-conscious gear that can survive long-term, unsupported travel through highly abusive terrain. Companies like Patagonia, Arc-teryx, and The North Face completely revolutionized outdoor soft goods, but for some reason that revolution never quite made it to motorsports.
We build our gear to accompany you through the roughest terrain and craziest places you'd ever want to ride. It's tough-as-nails and built to take a beating, and we stand behind it with a lifetime guarantee. We want you to ride harder, travel further, go deeper, and push your boundaries, whether riding the dirt close to home or exploring some far-flung region of the globe. See you there.
