This new motorcycle apparel company launched with a line of t-shirts that are distinctive, high quality and functionally designed for motorcyclists. Cultured Biker aims to fill a need in the marketplace and serve a distinct mission – to donate one garment for every one sold to neglected and abused children. The Supershow is Canada's opportunity to get Cultured Biker shirts without import duties.
"We are excited to bring our shirts to the Toronto Supershow and share our passion for riding and love of the biking community. We hope riders in Toronto will find their favourite shirts at Cultured Biker and at the same time help us share the spirit and traditions of the motorcycling family with children who could benefit most. We are committed to manufacturing 100% in USA, giving back to children, and honouring bikers' individuality through distinctive graphic designs. With every t-shirt purchase, we will donate one to an abused child," says co-founder Danielle Barnes.
Selling directly to consumers as well as dealers, Cultured Biker premium quality shirts are made from either American-grown heavy weight cotton or a high quality bamboo blend. Bamboo is a natural performance fibre that is anti-microbial, wicking and keeps you cooler. The shirts were designed with functional features like reinforced seams to stand up to the rigours of the road, as well as being longer all around with an even longer tail to ensure you are covered as you lean forward for the ride.
Distinctive graphic designs for men and women answer the question "What kind of biker are you?" The debut collection emphasizes pride in our American culture including:
- The Signature Shirt – Features a Cultured Biker logo and hidden map within wings on your shoulders
- The Café Racer–The Racer takes on a super heroic quality as she races by. Cultured Biker provides the shirt, you provide the sound effects
- The Veteran Biker– Honouring those that have served and are serving our country
- The Service Biker – Appreciating those that serve and protect our local communities

Made proudly in the USA, each piece of clothing will help to create or sustain a job, and for every garment sold, one will be donated to organizations working with neglected and abused children.

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Danielle Barnes and Millie Tarallo met on a ride to raise money for breast cancer research. On their first road trip together to the Women's International Motorcycle convention in Nevada, they experienced their "aha moment." The clothes they were wearing did not express anything unique about the individuality of bikers; many cultures coming together to form one community. Their shirts were not functionally designed specifically for bikers. So with their passion for riding, love of the biking community, and shared commitment to socially responsible business practices, they launched Cultured Biker.
