Wolfride clothing are a mountain bike clothing company based in Sheffield concentrating on clothing designed for the mountain bike enthusiast and cyclist. We welcome your feedback - if you have any questions please contact me.
I love form and function as a designer, and wish to reflect this in my label. Not only am I selling clothing, but want to give something back to the bike community by supporting local trail builders and the conservation of the countryside. I will do this by donating a percentage of company profits to these causes. Clothing has also been sourced that has WRAP accreditation who promote ethical, humane, and lawful conditions and practices in manufacturing (see bottom).
At the moment I am concentration on performance based clothing that will keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer. Most of my offerings are naturally wicking which takes sweat away from your skin as well as drying fast and being light and comfortable.
Kickstarter is a crowd funding website - you are the crowd. This is your chance to support a new business by pledging to pre-purchase an item at a great price. If I am successful and raise the money you will be supplied with the goods after Kickstarter ends (I will collect your address and post out the items you have backed / or deliver them personally if I know you). If I am unsuccessful you pay nothing and my project goes unfunded - if you would still like items I may still be able to provide them.
The glove design (pictured), which I have been working on with help from the manufacturer whilst taking cues from nature with the grip design. I have received a sample glove to check on the manufacturing quality, and is a good fit for a large, with a good degree of stretch. The first run will only be in LARGE though, due to financial constraints.

If I am successful with my bid - I will collect your size, design choice and colour by sending you a form to your email address so you can choose your design, colour choice and size. I will then dispatch items to your supplied address. Money will only be taken from your account if my bid is successful after the Kickstarter ends and you pay nothing until it reaches its goal.
If it is unsuccessful - you pay nothing!
Risks and challenges
The risks take the form of the cost of buying clothing and manufacturing new products to build the brand. In a competitive market place I aim to offer some new ideas and have a fresh look, as well as providing cool, technical clothing that people would be happy to wear out on a ride or down at the local bar.
I have been producing designs and t-shirts for companies across the UK for a few years now and have great links in the t-shirt printing business as well as having some small scale production facilities as well for prototypes.
I have been talking to and researching bike glove manufacturers for several months and think I have found a great choice in a sports glove manufacturer with a proven record.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
