In the Pacific Northwest, you must be ready for everything mother nature throws at you. Its unique microclimate consist of everything from fog, wind, rain and heat, and can change on you in less than a New York minute. As cyclists, we must constantly prepare for our challenges ahead, which often results in wearing the best apparel for the day’s ride. Similar to mountain sports, the art of layering a base layer, jersey, vest, and jacket can make or break your riding experience.
Comprised of a passionate group of cyclists, conservationists, and adventure seekers, Anthm Collective is on a brand-building mission, ready to tackle the elements that cyclists face day in and day out. Even more important, they want to create a classic riding piece that was timeless and made in the states.
Inspired by the outdoors, founder Brian Anthony spent over ten years working hands-on with professional athletes at Salomon in Annecy, France; understanding their technical needs and specifications to design for the ultimate performance.
In 2009, Brian returned to the states planting his flag in Portland, Oregon where he met Ira Ryan of Breadwinner Cycles and forged a relationship built on blue-collar aesthetics. This partnership then led to a collaborative effort, a design for the W///Sport Lolo, a limited edition steel road frame and custom Anthm Collective Saltzman jersey.
Inspired by a 24-mile gravel grinder route in Portland, Anthm Collective’s Saltzman Jersey is constructed to endure the harshest weather months of the Pacific Northwest. From climbing in the mountains to the muddy challenges of a cyclocross race, the New Zealand merino wool jersey keeps you warm, dry, and collected — not an easy task in this environment.
The balanced kit is equipped with three rear pockets and a fourth zipper pocket keeping your phone and keys secure. Finished off with a reflective binding, the Saltzman alerts others of your presence, both on the trails and on the streets.
“Built with great rides in mind,” the Anthem Collective Saltzman is as technical as any cycling apparel we’ve laid hands on.
- Rubber waist grip
- Reflective binding pocket to alert those around you
- 40/60 New Zealand Merino/Polyester mix to keep you warm, cool, and dry
- YKK Ring Pull and Zip
- Stretch fit
- Odor Resistant
Brian’s collaborative spirit has enabled independent dealers like River City Bikes in Portland, and University Bikes in Boulder to sell high quality, custom soft goods at respectable margins. As partners, Anthm Collective designs custom jerseys that enable local business’s to grow their brand in a very competitive market.
