A few months down the line and this is where we are, finally unveiling our first products!
A lot of time, thought and research has gone into the design of our clothes and ensuring they’re your perfect outdoor companion. For now, both the lines will be functionally identical with the only difference being the colouring and branding.
Ride Short stand out features:
- The material used is light and has some flex, with special attention given to durability.
- The cut differs from any other baggies in the South African market. Emphasis was put on a sleek look and feel that eliminated any excess material flapping in the wind or catching your saddle. They’re also specifically designed to not catch the back of your knee when pedaling.
- We understand not everyone’s bodies are the same, or you occasionally eat a bit much at Sunday lunch, so all the shorts come with waist adjusters to ensure you get the perfect fit, every time.
- We’ve included two zipped pockets on either side, specifically positioned to avoid anything inside them bouncing while going through the pedal stroke.
- There was emphasis was put on the look and feel of the ride tee. It is different to anything in the local market.
- The material used is light and breathable, with superior moisture wicking qualities to keep you cool right through those long weekend adventures.
- Special thought went into the rear pocket design. It has been designed to fit most big smart phones (with the exception of the Huawei P7 – it's huge), with space for more. We’ve got a snap–shut system that is easy to open and close on the fly and stops the contents from jumping out when you’re bombing down the trails. We’ve included some padding against the skin to stop any of your ride essentials scratching you.
So, where to from here?
We’re headed to production. With luck, we should be fulfilling our first orders within 7 weeks. We’re offering a pre-production discount on all our products if you order them via our crowd-funding page. This will ensure you not only get a discount, but you’ll also be the first to get our kit. If we don’t reach our goal, you get every cent back, no exceptions. The money from this will go into advertising, R&D, as well as production of our trail running stuff.
You also qualify for 10% off your first purchase by signing up now. Offer only valid until Friday 3 June.
We hope you’re as excited as we are.
Cheers for now,
The Westpeak Team
