So here’s the story. Mountain biking is awesome, but the selection of riding apparel for women, has historically, not been in abundance. Think back to what you were wearing in the early 2000s! It seemed to have a terrible case of the B’s – black, boring, baggy, and to be honest, looked like it was made for the boys. Life is all about experiences. And SHREDLY desires for the experience of every adventure to begin the moment you get dressed. Putting on something comfortable (duh) that actually fits (about time) yet is still stylish (thank you) and puts a smile on your face is … well, just how it should be! And what we need to get our minds right to tackle the world.
Proudly born on Kickstarter in 2012, SHREDLY was created to bring a burst of fresh style into the world of women’s adventuring while maintaining technical product performance and offering unprecedented comfort. Featuring a multi-sport line of women’s mountain-bike inspired apparel, infused with vibrant colors, innovative designs, and practical attributes (lightweight, yet durable, fabrics with quick-dry properties), allows you to adventure in style!
MEET ASHLEY, FOUNDER and DESIGNER
A Colorado native with a passion for the outdoors who spent her childhood riding bikes, playing in the dirt and exploring the wild wild west with her siblings and the best four legged pal you could ask for. It also wasn’t a rare occasion that she did all of this with crimped hair, painted nails, and carefully paired outfits. So it made perfect sense that Rankin was naturally drawn to activities include a little bit of color and design – something she always knew was missing from the sport of mountain biking. Enter SHREDLY. Thoughtfully engineered apparel that crosses over into all women’s athletic endeavors…not just cycling. Rankin is excited to offer women a one-stop shop for multi-sport apparel that is not only insanely functional but incredibly good looking.
MEET STEPHANIE, CUSTOMER and EVENTS HAPPINESS ENGINEER
Stephanie was introduced to SHREDLY as a shop buyer back in 2012 (our inagural year!) and quickly became the ultimate super-fan. Fast forward several years, a lot of miles traveling the country stoking people out with Trek bikes, she is now the heart behind our Customer and Event experiences, which is why we call her our Happiness Engineer. She also has a huge influence on product design as an avid rider and lover of all things colorful. Stephanie has a famously cute pup named Edie (or Edith) and is also the namesake of one of our best-selling prints of all time, the JONESY. When she's not riding, in her spare time you'll find Stephanie doing something creative like quilting and making masks, or doggie accessories.
MEET JULIE, OUR MARKETING MIND
Julie and Ashley first met while working together in Carbondale, Colorado… the jobs changed but the friendship and work ethic remained. So a few years later, as SHREDLY really started to grow, Julie was a logical fit to help support the company’s budding digital marketing efforts. These days, Julie handles all things email and keeps our curated content on-brand while guiding our overarching marketing strategy and brand voice. Away from work she stays busy keeping up with her over-stoked toddler, sneaking to the Utah desert for climbing and biking trips, and stalking trout in her backyard streams. Favorite trail: Anything that ends with a swim, no matter how cold or impractical.
MADE IN THE USA
SHREDLY has committed to supporting our domestic economy and all of our products are proudly made in the USA. We hope you are just as stoked as we are to get a homegrown product.
