Product collaboration features a bold new print inspired by Juliana brand heritage and greenery of Northern California
Sun Valley, ID (April 18, 2023) /SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/ – Wild Rye, the premiere outdoor lifestyle apparel brand designed for and by women-identifying adventurers, today announces a special collaboration with fellow women-first bike brand, Juliana Bicycles. The collection features five limited-edition pieces all offered in the hand-illustrated “Juliana Fern” print and bold celery green colorway, representing the Juliana brand heritage in Santa Cruz, California, where the mountain bike trails are lined with an array of wild fern species.
The collection includes four of Wild Rye’s fan-favorites, the Freyah Pant, Merritt Muscle Tank, Freel Short, Galena Gloves and all-new trail Bandana which can be purchased exclusively at EVO and online at Wild Rye and Juliana.
“This collaboration is the perfect partnership of two premium women’s brands in the cycling space coming together to welcome more women-identifying folks onto bikes,” said Cassie Abel, Wild Rye Founder. “Wild Rye and Juliana share brand ethoses that center around community, fun and elevating women, so it’s a natural alignment. I am so excited to share this collaboration with the world, while making some noise for women.”
“One of my first calls when I joined Juliana was to Cassie at Wild Rye to explore how we might work together,” said Megan Tompkins, Juliana Brand Manager. “Both brands are mission-driven to create a vibrant mountain bike community for women riding together, supporting each other, and having a blast doing it, so it just seemed like a natural fit. We’re stoked to bring this powerful collaboration to life and to partner with EVO to inspire more women while offering apparel that allows them to express their wild side.”
To celebrate this collaboration, EVO – Salt Lake will be hosting a red carpet fashion show event with a live DJ on May 18. The evening will be themed around preparing for mountain bike season and training specific to strengthening and conditioning women’s bodies.
Additionally, both Wild Rye and Juliana will be attending several women-focused industry events including Sturdy Dirty Enduro in North Bend, WA on July 8 and Roam Events – Fruita, CO on September 22-24 and Sedona, AZ on November 3-5, where the collection will be on display and available for purchase while supplies last.
