For spring 2010, our fascination with cycling and the world's number one adventure playground for cycling being Nepal - lead us to highlight a product that is multi-functional. From the purpose of the product to the style, we have begun to develop garments that target a transit culture. We have learned that working with the best makes pioneering new products easier, which has lead us to a friendship with Slate Olson, Rapha’s General Manager of North America. Slate was born and raised in Oregon and currently lives in Portland with his wife and daughter. Olson has lived by principles of hard work and gratitude - from studying psychology and business at the University of Oregon to director of US advertising for Nike.

We have been pleased to work with Rapha and are excited to share more about a new standard for multi-functional transit product.
