New Roots, Deep Vibes
Few brands are able to capture the essence of cool the way Fasthouse does. With a heavy penchant for partying and good times, Fasthouse keeps an eye on the rebellious icons of the two-wheeled motorcycle world. The Los Angeles based brand has elevated themselves beyond just being a clothing company. They are a lifestyle brand and chances are if you see someone wearing their gear, they “get it.”
Fasthouse made a name for themselves in the moto world by sponsoring some of the flashiest, yet low key riders who live to ride and have fun. One look at their website and you’ll see they value storytelling and sharing rad bits of history from the lawless days of desert moto riding more than they care about selling you their wares. They’ve got a few key slogans to identify the brand, but one we most identify with is, “When Rules Were Few.”
Recently the brand announced their acquisition of Mike Redding, an MTB industry veteran with a punk rock past and a serious knack for managing talented riders. With Mike on board we had some guesses as to who’d be joining the new Fasthouse MTB family and we were right on the money. Who better to represent the new mountain bike line than some insanely talented riders who embody the stylish, carefree values the brand exudes.
Two of Fasthouse’s headlining MTB athletes happened to be in SoCal visiting the HQ while we were in town. We wanted to know more so we linked up for a little factory tour and interview. Ryan Howard, better known as R-dog and Tyler McCaul (T-mac) drove down from Santa Cruz to meet with Mike and the Fasthouse team to work on the new gear and plan upcoming projects.
Check out our video tour of the facility and interview with the crew.
