David Gabrys - 45NRTH
David Gabrys joins Mountain Bike Radio to discuss his job at 45NRTH. David travels the world, stands outdoors in the middle of Minnesota winters at events, and lives the 45NRTH brand. We'll talk about how he got to that position and what a day in the life at 45NRTH is like.
This is an interactive show, in which we invite listeners to call in and ask their questions about winter gear.
What is 45NRTH?
"45North is a winter cycling company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the average winter temperature is 13° Fahrenheit . We make products that provide the ultimate in comfort and control for the cold weather cyclist. Think hands, feet and traction.
We ride our bikes in the winter — a lot. Every product we make is a reflection of our knowledge and experience riding countless miles in extreme cold.
At work in the morning, our bikes hang in a row next to each other, with melting snow and ice dripping in trays below them. We obsess about insulation, wind-blocking, fatbike tires and the pros and cons of tire studs. Then we ride home again and hang our sweat soaked clothes on the handlebar to dry out for tomorrow’s ride.
In addition to bikes, we like photography, home-brew, live music, food, clean design, skiing, snowshoeing, and snow storms that bring the city to a stand-still.
Day after day we pull on our insulated gloves, lace up our winter cycling boots and ride dozens of miles to work for one simple purpose: to help more people ride more miles in more cold.
Some people call us crazy. We call it passion."
