I’m always on the hunt for a short that looks good on and off the bike and over the years have been damn impressed with not only the style of SWRVE’s shorts but the durability. Mountain bike, tour, or ride dirt roads with their shorts, then hang out all day at the river in them and ride home. These quick-drying and durable shorts have a new cut and look for 2019. Head to SWRVE to read more.
This whole collection looks incredible! See more at SWRVE’s Kickstarter and be sure to back this killer deal.
Now, I’m not one to simply copy and paste press-releases but when I get stoked about a collection like this, I have to include all the details. SWRVE‘s apparel is top notch and some of their goods have made their way into my “can’t live without” list. While I haven’t seen this Combat Wool collection in person, I’m sure it’ll land on that list shortly. Check out the full press-release below, including photos of the goods.
If you’re on the hunt for summer shorts, look no further than SWRVE. Their new Camp Shorts are made in Los Angeles from SWRVE’s Heavy Canvas material and are available in a variety of colors and tones. These have a 9″ inseam and four pockets. Check out more at SWRVE.
KEIU means “welcome rain” in Japanese and when you have the right gear, you can do just that. SWRVE’s new waterproof rain gear line includes an anorak, a full zip jacket with removable hood and a vest. All three are fully-taped and made from Teflon™Shield+® waterproof fabric. There are vents and pockets to keep you comfortable and they come in a matte marled finish. Check out all the details at SWRVE.
Tomorrow SWRVE is throwing a warehoue sale at 3421 Verdugo Rd in Los Angeles. 100 Tacos will be there serving up food and Bicycle Coffee LA will be providing caffeine. Expect to walk away with great deals, a full stomach and a good coffee buzz…
Swrve has teased a few images of this so far and while I didn’t get to see it at Interbike, I will say this looks like it’s going to be a great piece of apparel. Expect more information in the coming weeks… For now, direct all questions at SWRVE on Instagram!
I love SWRVE’s made in the USA products and this latest capsule collection is perfect for these cold winter months. The Polartec fleece and cap is part of a limited run and will keep you plenty warm. Plus, that color is so good! Check out the Fleece and the Cap at SWRVE.
So… I scheduled that Rizzle video for today, thinking it was for yesterday (I’m still in OZ, where we’re about 17 hours ahead of you in the States) and I forgot to mention all the other Team Dream products in stock… Personally, I like the FFF kits, but there’s also CMYK socks, new SWRVE collaboration shorts – these rule – and other products.
See some more photos below and the full scoop at Team Dream!

I feel like over the past few years, I’ve begun to appreciate a good pair of shorts. So far this spring, I’ve had a few pairs on heavy rotation but since acquiring a pair of the SWRVE BLK Japanese Canvas trouser shorts, I’ve barely taken them off and I’m pretty sure that’s what SWRVE wants you to do.
This Japanese canvas is coated with a special treatment to give them a broken-in look after a few weeks of wear and riding. The fabric took only a day to loosen up and break in, something I wasn’t expecting as they’re kind of stiff feeling when you first put them on.
A 9″ inseam is what many would consider too short for comfort but I’ve taken a liking to their fit. When walking or riding, they sit a few inches above the knee caps, but when you sit down, they tend to hike up a bit more, usually around your riding tan line and cyclists love to show that off, right?
Two pockets on the rear will hold your wallet and what have you, with one zippered pocket to ensure you don’t lose your keys. Signature SWRVE detailing like a soft lining around the waist, durable belt loops and one reflective loop strip set these apart from many other “cycling-specific” shorts. All this with a zippered fly.
I’ve only had these for a little over two weeks now, so they’ve yet to show heavy signs of breaking in, but as with all of SWRVE’s products, especially the BLK line, I’m sure they’ll hold up fine to daily use.
Since these are Made in the USA and small batch, you can expect a retail of $100. Money well spent if you ask me…

I have a SWRVE Milwaukee hoodie and it certainly performs! The Bike Minimalism crew took a swing at it recently…
“The Bikeminimalism crew had the opportunity to test the swrve Milwaukee ES -hoodies during the fall-winter season of 2012-2013. The testing commenced in September 2012 and we finished in late April 2013.
As part of our testing, we brought the hoodies through heavy winds, rain, sleet, snow, slush and various other miserable conditions. The temperatures ranged from the comfortable +10° centigrade to the downright miserable -25°C.
Filmed on January 5, 2013, it was one of the 5-6 sunny days during the winter. Don’t be fooled by the sunny skies – the temperature was more or less -10°C, it was windy and cold as hell. Nevertheless, our rider was happy to ruffle his feathers… “
The SWRVE_BLK label products epitomize made in the USA, technical cycling wear. Check out their newest offering, the WWR lightweight shorts. Just in time for summer!
Kyle Kelley rarely does product reviews but when he does, they’re very thoughtful and well written. In the latest Trackosaurus Rex review, Kyle looks at domestic warm weather cycling gear, like the SWRVE _BLK Label Merino Wool Full-Zip Sweater. Head over to Tracko to get the scoop.
It’s funny how a ten-degree drop in temperature here in Austin has me scrambling to find my winter caps again. Little reminders, brought on my cold fronts, always alert me to the fact that the rest of the US is still very much in winter. While I’d only be able to wear the SWRVE Gore-Tex Belgian Cap once and a while here in Texas, I’m sure the rest of you would love to have one of these around your ears in the morning. Made in the USA and in an array of colors, pick one up here at SWRVE.
