What LEiWAND means
The moment after a downhill with your friends on your hometrails and you think: AWESOME! In Vienna we have a special word for this feeling: LEIWAND! For us there is nothing better than biking from the city center of Vienna to the local mountains to enjoy time with our friends on our hometrails. Naturally with a Kracherl, coffee, beer and Spritzwein. We are mountain bikers from Vienna and we have an aim:
Offer European premium sportswear at fair prices for trail mountain bikers who demand high quality!
What makes LEiWAND special?
It is the combination of three characteristics!
LEiWAND offers you European premium sportswear for trail mountainbikers with fair prices.
For whom is LEiWAND made for?
Trail mountain bikers! Also known as All-Mountain or Enduro bikers. So everyone who cycles up his own bike and then goes down on singletracks. We see the demarcation at cross-country and downhill, as we have specialized in the product development on the requirements of trail mountain bikers.
Our team consists of passionate mountain bikers. We have deep and long working experience in the areas of functional sportswear design, graphics, management, marketing and photography. All of us live, work and bike in and around Vienna!
Lukas is the main driver behind LEiWAND and together with Felix LEiWAND the company was found and built up. Irmy is the heart of our products. With her long-standing expertise as designer for functional sportswear she is one of the most wanted designers for premium products. Babsi (graphics), Lefti (fotography) and Beni (videos) are the genius people of our marketing team. Thanks to our awesome team 😊
Partners and suppliers
It is important for us to show, that there are more people involved than just our team from LEiWAND. Hereby, we want to present you our partners and suppliers from conception, graphics, fabrics and production. A transparent supply chain is important for us and we are proud that our network is 100% based in Europe. We want to highlight our production partner Kirpte Sportswear! Kirpte is not only a high quality factory for sportswear, but also gives major input for product development. Thanks a lot to all of our partners and suppliers!
What happened until now
LEiWAND started at the beginning of 2017 with setting up the brand concept by Lukas and Felix as the founders. Then Irmy came into the team as the designer and in June 2017 we received our first prototypes. The product development for our first product line (Short Anninger, Shirt Kahlenberg and Longsleeve Leopoldsberg) was finished in November 2017.
From November on we prepared our Kickstarter campaign, that was launched with a great Kick-Off Event at the 30. November 2017 in the great Icelandic Home-Café in Vienna. At the sixth day of the campaign we reached our funding goal! Thanks to all our supporters! The campaign ended at the 30. December 2017 and the production of our products started immediately in 2018.
In January 2018 we focus on finalizing our online-shop (www.leiwandwear.eu), so that you can get our products from March 2018 on.
This is our current situation and we are looking forward to an exciting journey. We hope that you will join our journey and have great fun with your LEiWAND products!!
Future of LEiWAND
We have clear plans for LEiWAND - European Trail Wear. Our products continue to be developed for trail mountain bikers and for different weather conditions when biking on the trails. We follow high standards to offer premium products from the combination of functionality, quality materials and a beautiful design language. Here we will also test innovative materials, such as blends of polyester and wood fibers. We will continue to manufacture our products 100% in Europe and offer them exclusively through direct sales. In this way we offer you European products, with fair social and ecological conditions, at reasonable prices and a top price / performance ratio.
