Evoking the beautiful colors of fall in Colorado, Leif Kruse’s new “Aspen” design is truly one-of-a-kind. Based on our Ascent line, the same Ascent cycling gear we manufacture for teams all over the globe, these jerseys, shorts and bibs have been designed, constructed and tested to exceed expectations in a variety of weather, road and trail conditions.
Painting and drawing are Leif’s mediums of choice and he’s been experimenting with them since early childhood. Leif’s father, Torsten Kruse, is his most influential mentor and a classical, historic maritime painter. Leif credits his father with nurturing his involvement in the arts from early on. Outside of art and his day job, road and mountain biking are Leif’s priorities. Just being outdoors in beautiful scenery is enough to calm his mind and inspire ideas.

George Thomas of Over The Top Radio stopped by our offices this week to learn more about Pactimo as a whole, our history in custom apparel and what’s new in our 2013 line-up. We had a great chat!
Listen to the interview with Karl Heidgen, our VP of Sales, Tiffany Howell, our Global Ops Manager and Frank Kim, our CEO.
Debbie Clapper has joined our Designer Gallery and her debut cycling kits for men and women called “Vortex” are now available.
Debbie focuses on creating original patterns, typographics and illustrations, which challenge the viewer to go beyond the surface level and delve deeper into the piece, allowing the art to reflect their own life experiences. Debbie works without aid of a ruler to create hand drawn, imperfect patterns which symbolize the importance of breaking out of the routine. Her main tools of choice are Micron pens and Sharpie markers. When working on a piece, Debbie allows for immediate results by letting the ideas flow from the brain, to the hand, to the paper with as little preparation in between as possible. gneural has done work for a wide range of very visible clients including: Denver Broncos, SmartWool, Ballet Nouveau Colorado, Pablo’s Coffee and various local bands.
You can learn more about Debbie and see her designs in our store at https://shop.pactimo.com/debbie-clapper-designer-cycling-apparel/

Looking for passes to Flagstaff Hill for the Stage 6 finish of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge?
Look no further — we’ve got some!
Flagstaff Hill is going to be some fantastic cycling on Saturday, but they are limiting access to the hill and the finish to a certain number of spectators.
Now you can get passes too. All you have to do is post a photo of yourself in Pactimo gear on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pactimo) and we will give you two passes.
Here’s where you can learn more about Saturday’s Stage 6 and Flagstaff Hill. And here’s a great video of a Flagstaff Hill descent:
Okay, now for the rules mumbo-jumbo:
Passes will be given to the first 4 people who post photos of themselves wearing Pactimo cycling gear on the Pactimo Facebook page. Two passes will be given to each person. Winners must pick up the passes at our exhibition tent in either Colorado Springs on Friday (August 24th) or in Boulder on Saturday (August 25th). Please have I.D. when picking up the passes so we can verify your identity. Once you have posted your photo a Pactimo rep will contact you with additional details.

“We had a great deal of fun Saturday morning unwrapping and getting all decked out in the 2012 kits! We even had some of our guys flying the new colors on Sunday in a cross race. Everyone really liked them and I think they looked even better in person. “Favorite kit yet” was a comment I heard. The counts came out spot on to boot!
