GIZMO has been making socks, hats, and apparel for Runners and Cyclists for over 10 years now, always with the goal in mind to offer active athletes fun and stylish designs combined with functional clothing. GIZMO started out with a first batch of Chili Pepper socks that were placed in a local bike shop. Soon the socks were all over town, the state, and then the entire US. GIZMO now has over 140 sock designs. Running hats and other apparel items were added to the selection. Many teams, events, and competitions rely on GIZMO's Custom Designs, its quality, and personal service to display and promote their cause. Today GIZMO products can be found in over 500 retail locations across the U.S., and even overseas.
In 2010 GIZMO became the US distributor for GAERNE, the high end manufacturer for handmade Italian cycling shoes. GAERNE’s focus is on uncompromised quality. Only the best materials are used and every detail is designed and tested to ensure that all footwear meets the essential requisites of a GAERNE shoe - wearability, comfort, strength, and protection. GAERNE develops its products in collaboration with current champions, such as Alessandro Petachi, Damiano Cunego, and Michele Scarponi, as well as past champions, such as Claudio Chiappuchi, Marco Pantani, Sean Kelly, Steven Roche, Cadel Evans, and Bert Grabsch, combining experience gained at legendary races like the Vuelta a Espana, Giro d’ Italia and the Tour de France, with avant-garde materials and the skills and traditions of expert craftsmen, resulting in what are considered to be the World’s Finest Cycling Shoes.
GSG Bike Wear, high quality, handmade Italian cycling clothing, will round out GIZMO's offerings in 2012. GSG is always focusing on innovative technical details and elegant design particulars.
