At Fondo, women come first. The company was founded in 2013 by three women who noticed a shortage of quality women’s cycling apparel when they started riding bikes four years ago, so they took it into their own hands to address the problem. 12 months on, they’ve developed a range of that incorporates high performance, superior quality and beautiful designs. Fondo is a proud supporter of women’s cycling and is thrilled to be managing the Trek Fondo team.
Trek and Bontrager
In 1976, in a southern Wisconsin barn, a pair of visionaries set out to create the best bike is the world. They fostered a culture of craftsmanship, where every bicycle was a point of pride. We’ve grown far beyond those modest roots, but to this day every bike we make is a testament to Trek’s founding principles. Since then no one in the world has done more to refine and redefine the experience of riding a bicycle than the engineers and designers at Trek. The path to superior performance is paved with curiosity, so we give the brightest and most passionate scientists the resources to question everything. As a result Trek and Bontrager products are ‘Best in Class’ and will help you perform to your full potential each time you saddle up for a ride!
