Welcome to Our Line of Trail Essentials
To celebrate the kick off of PNW women's apparel, we gathered some employees and friends of the brand in Santa Cruz, our favorite off-season riding spot. While options for women's riding gear are always getting better, we're excited to keep progressing the offerings in this category. Because, if we're being honest, we wanted to answer some of the long standing questions we've had, like - why are these pockets only made for the hands of an infant? What is this gap between my shorts and knee pads? And why is this jersey covered in flowers? And while there's nothing wrong with flowers, sometimes you just need great fitting apparel to keep your eyes focused on the trail ahead. Welcome to our line of luxurious and functional basics.
Years ago, we met Antonia in the Duthie Hill MTB parking lot and began talking bikes and e-commerce. This fortuitous friend of the brand ended up coding the platform for our dropper calculator, the helpful tool on our site that assists you in finding the most compatible PNW Dropper Post for your bike. A self-proclaimed math nerd, Antonia wears the Ozone Trail Jersey in Alien, a piece of kit that fits right in to her preferred riding tops that strike a balance between a traditional T-Shirt and technical jersey.
The Ozone Jersey is available in two colors, Alien (green) and Eclipse (grey). Shop the Ozone Jersey here.
Lindsay was one of PNW's first employees. Starting in Customer Service, and now head of IBD Sales, she is the ultimate riding buddy. Known for carrying ride-saving goodies like extra tubes, Co2 cartridges or trail snacks, she also brings an encyclopedic knowledge of how to fix your bike if something goes wrong mid-ride. Lindsay helped test and perfect the fit of our Shuttle Short to ensure it wasn't falling... short of our expectations for a great piece of riding gear.
Katy is our resident purveyor of good vibes. Inspired by her very first ride at Northstar-at-Tahoe, her love of biking quickly grew into a passion that led to her industry start at a local bike shop. Eventually finding her way to PNW, Katy recently transitioned from our Warehouse team to Sales. As an advocate of trail positivity and inclusion in the outdoors, she loves our Rover Hip Pack, presumably for all the shareable trail snacks it can hold.
