Fatbike Republic Axiom Cycling Bags Pod Pack Monsoon Framepack Oceanweave

Axiom Cycling Gear has been designing products since 1998 with a focus on durable, sustainable and innovative solutions to real world cycling challenges.

  
Axiom accomplishes this through maximizing versatility and fit, prioritizing the use of recycled materials and maintaining premium quality products while minimizing environmental impacts. 

In 2017, Axiom released its line of Oceanweave cycling bags – the world’s first to be made from reclaimed fishing nets. Lost and abandoned fishing nets are a major threat to the ocean’s ecosystem and actually make up to 10% of ocean debris. Oceanweave fabric is made from a polyester yarn that is developed from these discarded fishing nets. This fabric retains the same durability and performance as new material, while at the same time is cleaning up our oceans.
