As avid cyclists who care about the environment, we’re always trying to reduce the footprint produced by our sport. One of the biggest culprits was the inner tubes we had to replace every time we got a flat tire. It felt like such a waste to throw away a perfectly good inner tube just because of a small puncture. So we put our heads together and came up with an idea: why not repurpose those punctured inner tubes into something useful? And that’s how the idea for the ride pouch was born. We used the inner tubes to create the water-resistant exterior of the pouch, all while giving it a unique and stylish look. The interior of the pouch is lined with a soft, lightweight fabric to give it a clean finish. We produce these in small batches, using only punctured inner tubes that we collect from local bike shops and repair centers. Although it’s a labor-intensive process, it is worthwhile knowing that we are doing our part to reduce waste and tackle climate change.
Our Sh*t Happens Warranty covers against defects in materials and workmanship, for the lifetime of our goods during normal use. If Sh*t Happens, you can count on us to fix it or replace it.

Just a heads up, our idea of ‘normal use’ doesn’t include accidents, neglect, or the usual wear and tear. But hey, life’s full of surprises, right? If your gear needs a little extra love due to unexpected adventures, we’ll pitch in half the repair costs.

Why do we do this? Because we’re all about making products that last and minimizing our footprint on the planet. So, if a quick fix can add another decade to your gear’s life, then let’s patch it up!

Made with Upcycled Bike Tubes

Discarded bike tubes are collected from bike shops across the province of Quebec and are given to a social entreprise responsible for reintegrating mentally and physically challenged folks back into the workforce. This dedicated team cuts, cleans and thoroughly inspects the bits of tubes for repurposing. Once approved for production, their sent off to the sewing shop to be made into unique accessories with a new purpose.

Proudly made in Canada

All of our upcycled products from the ReCap Collection are made in the heart of Quebec’s Eastern Townships. We’ve chosen a small batch production model for these products to align with our values of sustainability and transparency.
