Over the past few months, you’ve seen some of my work with Mission Workshop on their new ACRE line. What began as a ride through China on cross bikes, picked up serious momentum as we plunged downhill in Germany and Switzerland on Santa Cruz mountain bikes. In a lot of ways, Mission Workshop’s progression into the ACRE products reflects what cycling has become for many of us: a lifelong commitment to experimenting with bikes. Period.
When Mission first started, there was a void that needed to be filled in urban cycling portage but few people know that Mission Workshop’s founders were mountain bikers long before they ever touched a track bike.
Over the past few years, they began to take on the immense project of designing MTB gear and bags, all while maintaining the DNA of MW: made in the USA, minimally-branded and tough as shit!
Presenting ACRE: some of the best damn looking MTB apparel and bags on the market. All made in the USA. I’ve used and abused these products and they live up to the same MW standard.
