Why We Designed It: Adjustable Cycle Skirt

Every woman has a few pairs of black bike shorts in her closet and it took her some time to find the right fit… the right chamois, the right inseam, the right fit around the thigh, the right fit around the waist to avoid the dreaded muffin top… There simply is no such thing as a one size fits all short.

Celebrating The Moxie In Our DNA

We all have a little Moxie in our DNA.  When life is threatened by cancer, there is no better embodiment of Moxie than of those touched by it pushing forward with sass and perseverance to live a life worth fighting for.  We are delighted to tell a story of hope and to work with the Huntsman Cancer Foundation to do our small part in seeking a cure.  In October of 2014, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Moxie will be launching a mini collection inspired by cancer patients, survivors and friends and family members supporting life that will include a Bolero, Colorblock-T and T-back jersey. Five dollars of every unit sold from the collection will be donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation where 100% of funds will go directly to cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.  We’d love to have your involvement in producing a design that inspires life.

Do I seriously want to ride into work today?” More often than not, the answer is yes. To put it simply, I love commuting. It’s free, I get a quick workout in the morning and evening, I don’t have to fight for a parking spot … the list can seriously go on and on.
