BUY WHERE YOU RIDE
We want our customers to get to know the quality manufacturers right here in Western North Carolina! You’ve probably bumped into some of their engineers testing a product on the trail or happened by a cool display at the Asheville airport. Our local manufacturers are some of the top names in the bike industry and are known worldwide for their exceptional products.
We are hosting a series of Meet the Brand nights that will allow you the chance to get up close and personal. Drop by our Asheville shop, have a beer with the people behind the brand, learn about their products and pick up some great deals (for attendees only)!
Join us at the Motion Makers Asheville shop on Tuesday, December 10 as our second annual Meet the Brand Series kicks off with North Carolina's own - DeFeet - makers of quality socks, armbands, hats and other knit sportswear products.
Founded in 1992 by Shane Cooper, the son of a knitting machine salesman who emigrated to the United States, DeFeet has been able to create sock designs the world has never seen. The first product was a totally customizable, open mesh weave airflow sock. Immediately, the world's top endurance athletes took notice. DeFeet is made in America and dedicated to keeping it that way, staying away from the outsourcing movement that has become altogether too easy for companies in the United States.
Stop by Motion Maker’s on Tuesday, December 10 at 6pm to have a beverage and a slice of pizza with the folks behind the brand. See the new Fall 2019 line including the EVO Disruptor - the fastest sock ever made! Meet the DeFeet team, get free socks and learn more about their current and upcoming products.
RSVP and we'll make sure to have food, drinks & swag!
