OUR VISION

We believe in a future where every woman feels like she belongs on her bike and can proudly say "I'm a cyclist"
"RAWR" represents the sound you make when you're fighting for what you love and our honey-bee logo symbolizes community effort, strength, intelligence and a balance of sweet and stinger!

OUR pillars
EDUCATION

We provide female cyclists with the right tools they need to feel safe and a deep sense of belonging on the bike whether it be on OR off-road. These tools include mechanical and tactical know-how covered in our events and content along with health and wellness inspired education through our social channels and web events.

CONNECTION

We create opportunities for female cyclists to meet, share in experiences together and inspire each other. We host physical events in Switzerland such as our annual "Hive Ride", mechnical workshops and wellness retreats. Our efforts are scaled on our social channels, podcasts and web events.

EMPOWERMENT

We empower women to feel like cyclists through meaningfully designed products like our pee-friendly bib shorts, by providing role models and working hard to change the narrative about what it means to be a female cyclists (and yes, she is sweaty, dirty, has permanent helmet hair and is resilient as heck)!

Helena loves a challenge (even if it usually means she bonks mid-way) and can't stop the waterfall of ideas that come her way when she's riding.

Naedu is our downhill biker badass babe. She rather takes cablecars but likes to join us on the road sometimes when she's in the mood to suffer. She's hilarious, loyal and always ready with a good playlist.

Arlette Bütschi

Since she started working as a design guru for a local cycling company Arlette eat, sleeps, breathes cycling! She loves adventure and riding the notorious Klausen pass on cold and rainy days with Lea when other people would think that's "too crazy."

Wendy Ellis 

Wendy likes being outside on a bike with everything she needs for a long distance adventure on- or off-road, preferably where there are mountains. You may also find her on a fixed gear, unsuccessfully going around courses with too many tight corners. Based in France, she is always looking for ways to perfect her baguette-in-cycling-jersey technique.

Lea Kiser

Raphaela rides soul first and we love her for it! She is authentic, powerful and a ton of fun. She's also a new mom and working hard to redefine our perceptions of motherhood - she's the woman who little girls will look at and say "I want to be her when I grow up!"

Claudia Sutter

Claudia is super fast on the bike but when you ride with her, she keeps it chill, her pedal stroke matches yours as she smiles beside you, making sure you don't feel pressure to hammer and that you can both enjoy the beauty of sharing the road. We are grateful for people like Claudia who have the speed to intimidate but make the choice to empower.

Emma Cook-Clarke

Emma is our on-site Canadian bad-ass femme firefighter who challenges all those pesky norms. She runs up mountains and rides down trails & believes that you don't have to ever do a drop in your life to be "epic" and everyone should feel empowered to call themselves a cyclist if they love to ride.

Curious about the background art?

 

The gladiolus is full of heroism. The name comes from the Latin word 'gladius', which means sword and symbolises strength, resilience and pride. 

We chose the drawing you see to represent us because we believe our work should equip the women who will follow us to find strength in one another and go farther together than they could alone. Our inspired design symbolises women pulling for each other and includes the gladiolus, sunflowers, alpine roses and the iconic edelweiss.

 

Our products reflect our values and are made to help you unleash your gladiator, lioness, warrior, bad bitch, whatever you want to call it. We are pulling for you, because we know you are pulling for all the others who will follow.
