Sombrio was founded by Dave Watson in 1998 in Vancouver, Canda known as the home of mountain bike central. Sombrio was originally a small mountain bike apparel shop specializing in mountain bike shorts. However, in 2002, Sombrio expanded its offerings and launched its first full collection in 2003. The brand’s focus was to create high-quality, durable, and stylish mountain bike clothing that supplied performance and comfort to riders.
Sombrio quickly gained popularity within the mountain biking community, thanks to its innovative designs and functional apparel. When designing new apparel for their product line, Sombrio always pays attention to detail, with a rider driven approach to product development.
