Upper Downs is named after the South Downs National Park and is inspired by the elements.
We were motivated to create our own high-performance cycling apparel after years of riding bikes through the South Downs’ famously unpredictable weather. Our focus is creating apparel that combines clean design with advanced technical materials to offer protection against the elements and superior breathability.
To make sure our designs properly address a rider’s needs, we collaborate with friends, local riders and some of the world’s top pros throughout the design, manufacturing and testing process. Our apparel features the most advanced, breathable, technical fabrics to ensure peak performance against sweat and rain.
We partner with leading ethical apparel manufacturers for precise fabrication. And no matter what we make, we ride it through every type of weather, get it really sweaty, get it really muddy, wash it all off, and flat out try to destroy it before we decide to go ahead.
