Appreciate this! We had a couple of known issues on your cons list (graphics, argh), but snap and seam issues should be rare. If something let you down, make sure to hit us up to take care of things.

fyi Rapha is $375, on sale for the plebes ;) Just a heads up Infinium isn't waterproof, it's a hybrid. (Looks like a decent piece imo)

@yakimonti: Thanks! The Compound is awesome, an absolute favourite in-house. We'd like to do it again with updated textiles, but have to find the right combo

@tanadog: That means a lot personally! I was at Arc from very early through that era, it was a wild ride and the pace of innovation was fantastic. We strive to carry the ethos forward - thank you for the feedback.

@rickybobby19: Interesting, thanks! I’m one of the founders, and happy to add some context for this and some of the pricing comments. (So when I type 'you' I don't mean you personally) Yes we’re small. OneUp is actually much larger than us, I don't know about the others. And yes we are inefficient in a business sense, but not meaning disorganized, more in how we allocate resources. We're here to build better mousetraps, that's our drive. So we over-invest in product development, and we sacrifice elsewhere to keep after it. Example, we think the best chamois collection comes from Elastic Interface in Italy. Several top brands use them, and some private label them to call them their own designs. We use EI too, but not off-the-shelf. We partnered with them, but also built our own molds and processes, and went to Italy to commercialize them in their factory. And we left them EI branded because we were focused on the result, not the hype. EI still do the heavy lifting. That probably doesn’t make economic sense. Their chamois was already the best. And our effort cost the same whether we're building at our scale, or Fox's or Rapha's. It's hard to absorb at our size. But we like to push, the highest compliment we get being ‘worthy’ from a few we care most about. So we take the steps we need. We develop materials directly with the makers, partner with the most capable factories, and wrestle with the increased costs, custom work, upcharges, and long development and lead times that come with that. 2-3 years developing WTV, same for Airmap. For us, wrestling with those costs translates into making do with less elsewhere, and I give kudos to our team who come together to make it work (possibly excluding my portion!). We’re 24 people all-in, and on product we're going toe-to-toe vs the $250M-$3B+ juggernauts in bike and outdoor, with hundreds or thousands of employees, all the muscle, and every resource they could want. The truth is there are a lot fewer brands pushing the envelope than you’d think. So...if you like what we do, we're stoked! But not everyone has to. We don’t know everything, we don't get everything right, and we don’t think one solution is good for everyone. If you prefer a different looking mousetrap, that's cool. Or one that's more affordable, no problem. You don’t need us to make it, there are plenty of options already. And if you want an even cheaper mousetrap from a super-efficient company, there are specialists that can do a good job for you. For me, the different approaches by different brands are super cool to see. We’re pushing on what’s important to us, and others make different choices. At the end of the day very few of us actually need an amazing mousetrap, or frame, or dropper, or sunglasses. We don’t even need great ones, really, for just riding bikes in the woods. But it’s nice to have options.

Our Airmap collection is highly water resistant (not waterproof) but the pay off is much much better breathability, better fit, stretch and PFC + PFAS Chemical free. For days where you need some water resistance but not GoreTex levels. But if you live somewhere where the rain pours, we have our Skypilot and Copilot 100% waterproof GoreTex jackets :)

We'd want to see what you come up with! Remember needs to be available in men's and women's specific fits, include all the trims and buckles and size ranges XS - XXL :) We'll give you a Canadian Passport and a 25 litres of maple syrup if it works out.
