Obsydian is a boutique cycling apparel brand based in Sydney, Australia.
Our mission is to deliver an elegant alternative to trendy, loud, “fashion statement” cycling kits. Sure, those kits look great today…but they often have a limited shelf date and typically compromise on construction or function.
Our aim is to create a premium kit you want to keep coming back to, the trusty kit that’s first off the rank after washing day. A kit that’s up there with the big brands, but a lot less damaging to your wallet.
Our primary focus is rider comfort, garment durability, performance and subtle aesthetics. To achieve this, we choose premium Italian-made fabrics for our kit – sourced from the same factories that supply to the big brands. We elected to use the best Italian-made chamois that we could get our hands on, for superior comfort, and our bibs are heavy duty stitched where it counts, for maximum durability.
In order to produce a premium quality kit at a much lower price tag than the big brands, we partnered with a highly experienced supplier in China. Our kit is carefully assembled there, under our strict guidelines and specifications. We can confidently say, our kit is put together just as well as the big brands, if not better.
Aesthetically, our colour palette is kept intentionally subtle – timeless black, white, greys and navys. Interchangeable, effortlessly classic with minimal branding, so you don’t look like a walking/riding billboard.
Because sometimes, you just want to let your legs do the talking.
