The Drop is a new mountain bike apparel brand based out of North Carolina that was built by two brothers, Jon and Josh Bomba. The brand was created out of pure love for the sport because, at the end of the day, the founders are riders first and everything else second. The brothers saw an opportunity for a quality apparel brand, without the bloated markup and marketing fluff of the big brands with a simple goal: to produce high quality gear at reasonable prices, constantly push the needle up, and give back to the community and environment whenever possible.
“We love mountain biking, especially the mountain biking community and this is our own way of immersing ourselves into that community and culture even more. We’re selling more than just mountain bike apparel, we’re selling good times!”
This season The Drop offers functional and trail-ready jerseys for just $45. Made of velvety-soft, light, 4-way stretch polyester, the jerseys are moisture-wicking and anti-microbial because for those summer rides in Pisgah, no matter how humid it gets. Plus, the jerseys have a side zippered stash pocket for keys, credit cards, or a small wallet and of course, a lower rear jersey tail for #noplumberscrack.
The trail shorts by The Drop offer a crisp, modern look with lots of stretch and breathability. The best part might be the price, at just $65.
