Bikes & Riders

Our team bikes were designed and built by Breadwinner Cycles. They were kind enough to name the model after the team - the Komorebi. The bikes were built with outstanding components thanks to our sponsors: Portland Design Works, Phil Wood & Co., Velocity USA, and White Industries. We ride with Revelate Design bags, MiiR hydration bottles, and Wildeor camp kitchen tools. Learn more about our Sponsors here.
