Founded in Hawaii in 1979 and located at the base of Mt. Hood in Hood River, Oregon, Dakine make women’s MTB gear riders love. Respect has always been a core Dakine value and their sustainability efforts show their respect of our planet. Dakine make great products, but even the best product has an impact on the environment. So, they’re always working to reduce that impact while still providing durability and functionality. Every year, their knowledge and material options improve, making it easier to approach product design with a variety of techniques that prioritize optimal performance and minimize impact on the environment.
Dakine’s first priority is durability, when gear is built to last it’s less likely to end up in a landfill. They do their best to utilize materials that reduce their impact on the environment and use recycled PET materials from post-consumer recycled plastic water bottles in products from backpacks to apparel.
