"Wild Rye and Juliana share brand ethoses that center around community, fun and elevating women, so it's a natural alignment. I am so excited to share this collaboration with the world, while making some noise for women."

"Both brands are mission-driven to create a vibrant mountain bike community for women riding together, supporting each other, and having a blast doing it, so it just seemed like a natural fit. We're stoked to bring this powerful collaboration to life and to partner with EVO to inspire more women while offering apparel that allows them to express their wild side."
