USA made cycling apparel

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I perused their website. Their clothing looks nice and its interesting that the blend in bamboo white ash on the jerseys. Only sticking point for me so far is the price. $209 for most of the bibs. I can get two lower end Voler bibs for that price.

My one De Soto short and 4 jerseys are still going strong since the late 1990s. Sure enough, label says Made in the US.

+1 for Borah. I'm biased because I know where their shop is, and it's at the base of an epic climb.

I agree that their pads are comfy. IMO the jerseys I've got from them are more suited to spring/fall riding, especially for places where it tends to get hot/humid.

Capo is designed and run out of California but the clothes are made in Italy. The owner is second generation Italian. The quality is top tier. Most of my kits are Capo.

Believe it or not, Performance Bike shorts are made in America if you're looking for budget options. I've got PB shorts that have lasted me many thousands of miles.

Haven't seen Wattie Ink mentioned here yet:


I've never worn their stuff but I'm a fan of their ethos and some of their designs.
