“A good wheel is only good if it can hold up to the abuse you throw at it. We get it. We build our wheels to ride across just about any terrain, in all conditions on the same wheels. Whether it’s race day or Wednesday, we don’t want to think about our wheels. We just want to ride. And that’s what we want for our customers, as well.” said Knight Composites Brand Manager, Brad Swaim. “We’re excited to be a part of Desert Gravel– events that are perfectly fit for our wheels… and truthfully we all can’t wait to ride, ourselves.”

Dirt & Asphalt = Gravel
We love to think that DNA had the perfect formula already in place in 2008, Dirt & Asphalt = Gravel. With that, the trend continues towards adventuring where ever our bikes can take us. This sense of exploration has always fueled us, embracing the tradition of custom clothing with the innovation of technology that pushes the barriers of our product, much like pushing the limits of our bikes through unique terrain.
DNA is excited to partner with Morgan Murri and his team at Desert Gravel. Their sense of adventure, endless views, and vistas aligns with our need to explore, push and challenge ourselves every day.
“DNA’s quality, comittment to the riders and their incredible breadth of product is in perfect alignment with us. Giving our riders not just amazing designs in a jersery but butter soft t-shirts, 200 mile long comfortable chamois, ankle saving socks and killer awards. And, our shared Utah roots is an important bonus!” Morgan Murri
About DNA Cycling:
DNA Cycling was launched in 2010 with the singular goal of creating the type of cycling apparel we wanted for ourselves. Four words that fuel our mission? Let’s do it right.
Over the years we’ve continually refined, re-designed, and pushed the boundaries of what The Other Guys were doing. Our desire to create the perfect fit has led us on a journey that we never anticipated. And it’s culminated around a concept we refer to as Body Mapping. In a nutshell, we want your kit to feel like it’s painted on. This requires matching up the perfect fabrics for different body types and riding styles. We then add in laser cut trims, compression, seam construction, wicking properties, suspension systems, superb chamois and bio ceramics to create a kit that feels like a new kit each and every time it is worn. Because doing it right shows. Every time.
