MAKING ITS MARK IN THE MOUNTAINSThe Saddle and Cleats Company was formed in 2015 to establish professional and sustainable mountain bike events of a consistently high standard, catering for all levels of mountain bikers, whilst exposing them to the spectacular scenery and fascinating cultures of the Eastern Cape.
The Eastern Cape has some of the best mountain biking routes in South Africa. The diversity of terrain offers remote mountain roads or twisting single forest lanes to test technical skills and anaerobic endurance. The aim is to develop iconic events on the National Mountain Bike calendar and to see the Eastern Cape becoming the preferred destination for mountain bike riders in South Africa.
The Saddle and Cleats Company offers professionally developed events that not only attract riders but foster good relationships within the local urban, rural and farming communities.
The development of the Saddle and Cleats Company brand was a great project for the OPENFORM design team - mostly sporting enthusiasts with a deep understanding of the lie of the land. And the passion for the project is reflected in this note from owner, Lawrence Blane: “What you have done for us is simply amazing!” OPENFORM looks forward to the journey ahead as the Saddle and Cleats Company makes its mark in the mountains of the Eastern Cape.
