Sea Otter Classic: High Fives and Positive Vibes


Bikes, beers, and burritos were just a few of the familiar sights floating around this year’s bike industry season opener: The Sea Otter Classic. Hosted in sunny Monterey, California this event gathered over 75,000 like-minded mountain biking enthusiasts to come together for a full-blown four day festival. With hundreds of biking vendors in attendance, this event is the largest consumer bike expo in all of North America.

There is no better way to kick off the start to bike season than attending the Sea Otter Classic. We were absolutely thrilled to have our products be so well received by the mountain biking industry. This event just keeps getting better each and every year and we look forward to continuing to making a mark on the cycling world.
