From day one we have been committed to designing fresh and unique clothing ideas; but, we still keep things both simple and laid back, much like the lifestyle that comes with mountain biking and many other sports. So whether you’re a biker looking for some new style, or if you’re just looking for something a little different, Lavan has you covered.

Our goal is to continue showcasing Lavan’s style to the mountain bike world, and grabbing everyone else’s attention along the way.

Nema International http://www.deathgripracing.ca/thesponsors/nema-international/ http://www.deathgripracing.ca/thesponsors/nema-international/#comments Thu, 30 May 2013 01:04:06 +0000 Deathgrip Team http://www.deathgripracing.ca/?p=1204 Bikes – to us, they’re not an afterthought. Bikes are our lifeblood. For nearly 20 years, it has been our mission to deliver the very best MTB and BMX cycling apparel. We believe riders shouldn’t have to settle for cookie-cutter products better suited for motor sports with a “MTB” or “BMX” tag slapped on them. Core riders know they can count on Nema to support their scene, and offer unmatched quality and performance products specifically for them.

When we started in 1994, the only option for MTB apparel was spandex. So, we introduced the Original Baggy Mountain Bike Short, a system that bridged the inner liner to a durable nylon shell. Although the design has evolved over the years, this basic concept is still our trademark today.

Before we expanded into BMX in 2010, riders were confined to heavy, clunky gear made for a different sport. It became our priority to offer specialized apparel designed to meet the unique challenges of BMX, a tradition we proudly continue today. In an environment where tenths matter, we understand the last thing that should be in rider’s way is the gear they’re wearing.

From the best in function to cutting-edge design, Nema has earned a reputation for providing MTB and BMX gear above and beyond expectations.
We have a passion for cycling and cyclists remain our priority. We ARE riders. And riders know what riders need.

Nema International | Real. True. Cycling.
