ROOTED in BACKCOUNTRY RACING

Rockgeist began its journey in 2014 by designing gear for endurance backcountry racing. These racing roots guide our mission to maximize people’s experiences in the backcountry by providing an alternative to ill-fitting, heavy, and often poorly-functional baggage. Whether you’re multi-day racing or out for a casual day-ride, Rockgeist provides the advantage of durable, lightweight, and functional gear to help you travel farther and more effortlessly. Pack everything you need and explore easy with Rockgeist.  

WHERE DOES ROCKGEIST FIT WITHIN the INDUSTRY?

The bikepacking gear industry is transitioning. Over the last five years there has been growth of select individuals and small companies offering custom builds with premium quality. Rockgeist is leading this new wave of made-to-order gear by setting the bar for personal customization, first-class quality, and customer service. 

UNRIVALED QUALITY and PRICE

Rockgeist is one of the most efficient small-scale bikepacking gear companies. Operating in a 3,000 sq ft shop, with seven industrial sewing machines, Rockgeist uses the most efficient manufacturing techniques developed in-house and leveraged from other sewing industries. What does this professionalism and efficiency mean for you? This means short lead times,  competitive pricing, and unrivaled quality.

BUILT IN THE BLUES

Rockgeist is headquartered in Asheville, North Carolina; the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can find Rockgeist working out of the former Burlington Cotton Mill on the French Broad River. Visits are warmly welcomed. 2000 Riverside Dr. Unit 33, Asheville, NC.

WILDLAND FIREFIGHTER FOUNDATION

Rockgeist is proud to sponsor the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to the families of firefighters who have died while performing wildland duties. The Foundation has formed an ambassador mountain biking program in an effort to raise awareness for their cause. The goal of these riders is to build and strengthen relationships between those who love and recreate on public lands and the wildland firefighters who protect them.
