Recycled Collection: Rider and Joy Ride

For 15 years, our pursuit of excellence in materials has defined our commitment to quality. At Club Ride, we believe that the true essence of clothing lies in its fabric, and we are steadfast in our dedication to reducing impact on the planet by using sustainable textiles.

Club Ride utilizes rPET - a sustainable alternative to virgin polyester. While virgin polyester is derived from crude oil and consumes excessive amounts of water and chemicals for its production, rPET is crafted from plastic bottles and boxes that are spun into polyester filaments. 

This process not only grants a second, or sometimes even a third, life to non-biodegradable materials that would otherwise end in landfills but also significantly reduces water usage and chemical emissions, resulting in an overall lower carbon footprint. On average, 9 plastic bottles yield enough fibre to produce one shirt.

The latest addition to our Recycled Collection are the Rider and Joy Ride shorts and pants:



Recycled Rider & Joy Ride Design

Our guiding principle, "For the Ride and Everything After" permeates every aspect of our brand, from inception to execution. 

The Rider and Joy Ride garments are the embodiment of this ethos. Our mission was clear: to design the ultimate modern trail shorts and pants.

With features like laser cut perforations for maximum breathability in critical areas, shaped bottom hems on the shorts, exposed elastic waistband for both security and style, thoughtfully selected recycled fabrics, and an overall fit designed for the demands of modern-day cycling and active lifestyles, these pieces epitomize our vision.

In our search for the finest technical and functional fabric, we began by blending rPET filaments with a touch of cotton. This carefully balanced blend adds a luxuriously soft hand feel and delivers all-day comfort, while the recycled polyester offers excellent durability, moisture-wicking and quick drying properties. We also added 11% spandex into the material weave, allowing better freedom of movement during activities by delivering optimal stretch and recovery while maintaining breathability.

Whether you're riding on hot, humid conditions, tearing through dry deserts, or going on high mountain adventures, these versatile pieces seamlessly transition from the trail to everyday life. In essence, Rider and Joy Ride surpass our expectations, delivering functional bottoms for both men and women that excel in every environment.
