About Us


Retro Image Apparel burst onto the cycling scene in 2002 with the innovative idea that cycling jerseys could be both fun and functional.

The inspiration for Retro came when its founder, Roger W. Mallette, discovered a copy of a 1923 Bauhaus Cycling Exposition poster. From that spark, the company grew from one man with a vision to a globally recognized provider of cycling apparel.

Retro Image Apparel combines top-quality performance materials with stunning graphic illustrations and bold pop culture icons not found anywhere else.  When you ride with Retro, you celebrate The Art of Riding™.
