7mesh was born out of the realization that while technical equipment for backcountry adventurers had made great strides forward, the cycling community had been left behind. And as cyclists, as well as apparel professionals who helped create many of the outdoor industry’s revolutionary technologies, we knew cyclists deserved better. So in 2013 we quit our jobs and got down to business. Our first collection debuted in 2015. Since then, we’ve been equipping a growing community of adventurers around the world with advanced cycling clothing for road and track riding in all conditions.
Our goal is to create cycling clothing that stands the test of time, with innovative shapes, premium fabrics and advanced manufacturing methods such as taped seams and Clean Finish stitching. All this so that when you’re ready to go, your gear is too.
We believe that clothes shouldn’t draw attention to themselves, which is why we spend so much time polishing every line, stitch and shape, before testing new ideas on the mountains that overlook our design studio. . Then we build on what worked and improve on anything that took us out of the present moment, repeating the process until we only see the journey ahead.
