Introducing the ElevenGear beanie. Take the bite out of cold mornings while at the same time proudly hoist our logo right on your forehead. At least we had the good sense to keep the contrast low so you're not exactly a billboard. We were hoping for a more subliminal message. Comfortable and warm, the beanie will fit your head well weather or not you have a helmet on over it.
It's hard to throw away a race number. All the work, prepraration and commitment is symbolized by that high-contrast piece of Tyvek. Maybe you had a good result, maybe your goal was to finish. Maybe things didn't work out. But you made it to the start and pinned on the number. It might have been a century, a bicycle race, a 10K or something else.
As it turns out, Tyvek is some pretty tough stuff. It doesn't rip, it's impervious to water. Housing contractors use it. FedEx makes their overnight envelopes with it. Your stack of race numbers in the closet are made with it.
The Race Number windbreaker is great for a variety of uses, including but not limited to event sign in, pasta feeds, press conferences, though we wouldn't recommend racing with it (on grounds of confusing race officials!). We can state without reservation that it is definitely a conversation starter!
It occurred to us that it sure would be cool to be able to use these symbols of significant effort. Several iterations and tweakings of the process and here you have it, the Race Number Windbreaker.
Creating the RNWB is no easy task and as such is no ordinary jacket; It took several iterations to get it right. It takes at least 43 race numbers to make a Large. Send us 50 to be sure just in case. Let us know which numbers you would like to be featured front and center and we will accommodate you. If you don't have all the numbers to do it we'll fill in the garment with generic numbers for an extra $10. And we won't tell.
