Ciovita is an international cycling kit company with headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa.
Inspired by classic European cycling style and driven by a passion for technology we make kit that is beautiful, innovative and stands with the very best cycling apparel the world has to offer.
The name, Ciovita, is a combination of Italian and Latin words meaning “Life in Motion” and this philosophy underpins our approach to an industry that is always pushing itself to go further and faster.
We never stop testing; we never stop tweaking; we never stop learning; and we never stop searching. We never stop. It’s all there in our name.
At Northwave we pour all our energy into one and one thing only: creating the finest products for sport in the mountains.
With a single-minded focus, we create innovative products, unmatched in terms of performance, quality, design and style.
MOUNTAIN. IT’S IN OUR BLOOD. Our Headquarters nestle at the base of the mountains, a bike and snow mecca and our daily source of inspiration for the sports we love. Whilst there are many places that claim to be the spiritual home of their sports, few are really.
It’s no coincidence that Northwave as a brand has always been associated with the values that define its Alpine heritage: innovation, quality, attention to details, performance, a refined aesthetic and sustainable development.
The team behind USWE grew up riding off-road motorcycles on the Swedish country side, searching for the adrenaline rush in deep mudholes and at big climbs. We stuffed our backpacks with enough food, water and gear to keep us and our bikes running day and night. The packs were really uncomfortable and bounced around our sore backs like dancing monkey’s or God knows what. We hated it!
Our frustration led us to buy an old Husqvarna sewing machine in 2007 for a couple of bucks so we could start working on our own backpack prototype. Did we know how to sew? Hell no. Did we enjoy it? Hell yes. And USWE was born.
Today we are a global brand designing bounce free action backpacks for athletes and weekend warriors, who rather spend two hours trekking through cold mud than 10 minutes in a shopping mall. Do our packs also work in sunshine during a nice morning jog? (Hey, does the hen lay eggs?) Of course they do!
