Augusta & Adeline, the revolutionary new made in America motorcycle apparel line designed by and for women, is live on global crowdfunding platform — Kickstarter and raising funds to bring the project to life.
In 1916, before paved roads, maps of the US, and women being allowed to wear pants, Augusta and Adeline rode their motorcycles across the continental US. They were the first women to accomplish this feat riding solo, facing arrests for wearing men’s clothing, crossing rugged mountain paths and unknown countrysides as they rode into the Wild West. Over 100 years later and millions of women riders following in those iconic footsteps, Augusta & Adeline is launching a line of stylish moto gear exclusively for women.
“Women have been riding motorcycles for over 100 years, but the industry still overlooks us. We’re here to change that, to celebrate women’s motorcycle history and build a sisterhood of motorcycle enthusiasts. I’m launching this brand to show women that there is a place for all of us in the motorcycle world,” says founder Brittany Crook on the inspiration behind the project. “At Augusta & Adeline, we design products that wear in, instead of wearing out. Our timeless gear is designed to protect, support and empower you on your next adventure, whether it's to the corner store or across the country.”
Augusta & Adeline is launching two signature pieces all manufactured in the U.S. less than 200 miles from where Augusta and Adeline started their ride:
• Adeline Chaps. These easy-on-and-off chaps have a streamlined, slim-leg design with signature women's specific articulated fit means wearers don't feel them no matter how far they bend. Hidden snaps at the bottom of inseam zippers give extra security when riding and an adjustable waistband belt customizes the fit and eliminates any gap on the back.
• Augusta Jacket. 1mm Thickness Full Grain Leather Motorcycle Jacket with all the features including four deep hand & storage pockets, six zippered vents, two zippered gussets at the cuff for adjusting layers and two hidden zippered gussets for extension in the hips. Women’s specific articulated fit means the jacket fits comfortably with all riding positions
“Augusta & Adeline is here to create a new standard in women’s motorcycle gear and to cultivate a community around women who love motorcycles. Our timeless gear is designed to protect, support, and empower you on your next adventure,” adds Crook. “Women have been riding motorcycles for about as long as bikes have existed, but the motorcycle industry continues to focus on men. Augusta & Adeline is determined to chip away at that imbalance by making gear for women riders by women who ride!”
