 RYDERS EYEWEAR Deep roots on Vancouver’s North Shore

In the early 80’s, mountain biking was only just emerging as a sport. The equipment was bad and the clothing was worse. Over just a few years, its popularity grew considerably with a scene developing in Whistler and on Vancouver’s notorious North Shore. By the mid-80’s, the gear was improving and the sport was progressing rapidly.

1986 brought about the first ever Canadian Mountain Bike Championships, with the competition spanning a few days and finishing in Whistler with local boy, Brent Martin, coming out on top. Shortly after being crowned Canadian Champion, Brent founded RYDERS EYEWEAR. His goal was simple—to provide cyclists of all stripes with high quality, performance-oriented eyewear that they wouldn’t hesitate to use, especially in the most destructive conditions. But it wasn’t just about eyewear and bikes—he was determined to remain actively involved in the cycling and outdoor communities, doing what he could to encourage the growth of these sports.

 For the past 31 years, we have stayed true to Brent’s vision.

 The reality is that mountain biking, road cycling and endurance mountain sports present the most unique and challenging environments for eyewear. Designing eyewear for golf, baseball or activities that occur in static environments doesn’t force you to meet these challenges. We design, test, and produce products to directly solve problems that are encountered in these hostile activities and environments. Our deep roots in the Pacific Northwest are of vital importance to who we are today. Not only are we still headquartered in North Vancouver, but everything we do is influenced by our drive for adventure, our love for providing like-minded people with hard-working gear, and our overwhelming sense of community—both in our backyard and afar.

 In late 2013 we were acquired by Essilor, the world’s leading lens manufacturer. As part of the Essilor family, we now have direct access to the best lenses on the planet, allowing us to constantly improve the quality of our collection. This new relationship is allowing us to elevate every aspect of our brand while never losing sight of the passion that started it all.

 Today we are known as an offbeat, gritty brand with authentic roots. We speak directly to those who take pride in their adventurous lifestyle and their practical, yet highly spirited approach to life.


HOW TO APPLY:    We thank all applicants for their interest, however, only those selected for interviews will be contacted.  To apply, please email your resume in Word or PDF format and include the title Marketing Manager in the subject line of your message.
