Like what we’re doing in our little corner of the mountain bike world? Want to be part of the community we’re building? Check out the opportunities below for your organization to join the SDR family!

Individual Sponsorship

I’m not currently taking on any individual riders for sponsorship. There’s a new program that will be taking the place of rider sponsorships coming later this summer and the Grassroots Crew program is now invite only. If you are part of a team or other organization that would qualify for the programs below, please reach out!

Youth Dev Teams, Clubs & General Organizations

Is your youth dev team/league/etc looking for a casual or technical apparel partner for your organization that just generally gives a damn? Want someone who is happy to help walk you through design options and won’t bullshit you for an upsell? Want someone who lives and breathes bikes the way you do? Give us a shout.

What you get from us:

  • 15% site wide discount on non-clearance retail items for your staff/members
  • 20% discount on orders of any custom items and all related services (eg design services)
  • Monthly promotion of your organization on SDR’s social media

What we expect from you:

  • An SDR logo prominently displayed on any custom items (within reason; we’re not monsters)

  • You’ll make at least one post monthly promoting SDR and our partnership
  • Your organization is a positive presence in the bike community

Historically Excluded Rider Focused Organizations

Our entire purpose is to make the mountain bike world a better place. As such, we are dedicated to helping foster groups who are focused on serving historically excluded riders in our community. If your organization’s mission revolves around serving BIPOC, LGBTQAI+, FTW or other typically historically excluded folks in the mountain bike community, social justice, or accessibility (either social/economic barriers or disability/adaptive sport), this sponsorship is for you.

What you get from us:

  • 20% site wide discount on non-clearance retail items for your staff/members
  • 25% discount on orders of any custom items and all related services (eg design services)
  • Twice monthly promotion of your organization on SDR’s social media

What we expect from you:

  • An SDR logo prominently displayed on any custom items (within reason; again, we’re not monsters)
  • Your organization has a public Instagram account we can follow and repost
  • You’ll make at least one post monthly promoting SDR and our partnership
  • Your organization’s primary purpose is serving one of the above mentioned groups, or another historically excluded group of riders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any documents to review? contracts, 1099s, etc?

Nope, this isn’t a legal agreement. I’m an anarchist after all…

Is it ok if we have other sponsors?

Sure, as long as they are cool with you repping SDR and you live up to the above expectations.

What if our organization doesn’t live up to the expectations above?

I’ll reach out and see if it’s something I can help with. If you’re just being jerks though, I’ll pull the sponsorship.

Who decides if we get a sponsorship and what organizations qualify for what?

I do. Don’t let my liberal use of the “royal we” fool you. SDR is a one man show, and all decisions are at my sole discretion.

Could we do a larger sponsorship?

Feel free to reach out with what you have in mind, but I’m just one person with limited resources. So I can’t promise anything.

Can the retail discount be used on sale items?

Regular sales? Probably, unless it’s a huge sale and stacking would put the price too far below my cost. Clearance items? No. Those are already priced at or below my cost, sorry.

Can I order for friends and family?

As long as you don’t abuse it. I track everyone’s discount code and I’m not made of money.  Abusing your discount is a good way to get your sponsorship pulled.
