1986 brought about the first ever Canadian Mountain Bike Championships. The competition spanned a few days and finished in Whistler with local boy, Brent Martin, coming out on top. Shortly after being crowned Canadian Champion, Brent founded RYDERS EYEWEAR. His goal was simple—provide cyclists of all stripes with high quality, performance-oriented eyewear that they wouldn’t hesitate to use, especially in the most destructive conditions. But it wasn’t just about eyewear and bikes. He was determined to remain actively entrenched in the cycling community. For the past 30 years, RYDERS has stayed true to Brent’s vision.

RYDERS EYEWEAR continues to design, develop and test their products in their own backyard, ensuring that every piece stands up to the treacherous nature of the north shore. If it meets the demands of biking in this region, we find it easily performs for almost any other athletic endeavor.
