A Family Legacy

The Hincapie family’s dedication to premium apparel reaches back to its roots in Colombia, South America. Ricardo Hincapie developed a passion for cycling when he started racing bicycles in his native Colombia. He introduced his sons, George and Rich to the sport he loved as soon as they were old enough to turn the pedals. All three Hincapie men have been sharing your passion ever since.

Hincapie Sportswear was created to meet the need for quality custom cycling clothing for teams and clubs, and it remains a core part of what we do every day. Our company owned factory in Medellin, Colombia is run by George and Rich’s aunt and uncle, Marie and Jorge Hincapie. Together they have over 30 years of apparel manufacturing experience. We produce custom garments for large and small teams and clubs, races and rides, corporations and charitable organizations.

In addition to manufacturing custom clothing for teams and riders in the world, we have created an extensive line of men’s and women’s premium retail apparel that is available through bicycle dealers and directly on Hincapie.com. Through our meticulous attention to detail and the use of innovative construction techniques and fabrics technologies, we have developed a reputation for making some of the best cycling apparel in the world. As a result, you can be confident that Hincapie products will help you maximize your performance in comfort and style.
