We create custom cycling clothing with free design assistance, unbeatable prices, and production timelines that are as low as two weeks.

Give us a brief description of your manufacturing processes and philosophy.

In the past, the cycling industry relied on big brands with large marketing budgets and overhead, and slow and unreliable delivery timelines. Kazoom focuses on being as efficient as possible, providing high-quality apparel with a small footprint. Working with a proven reliable Vancouver-based partner that owns a factory overseas, Kazoom is able to provide quality cycling apparel at significantly better value than other brands with larger overhead. Now all events, clubs and local bike shops can sell great gear printed with their own custom design at full margins. Our customers go from designing new custom styles to selling it in less than four weeks. This gives them the additional benefit of having full control over their inventory levels.

How many employees and/or contractors do you work with?

We have four staff plus our factory workers.

What brought you to the Kootenays and how long have you been here?

Brett moved to the Kimberely in 2012 after it became clear the business could function remotely. Kimberley’s high-speed internet connection and local airport meant that we could operate effectively from anywhere in the world.
