When we started JoyVIVA it was about finding and sharing the best products to help you be your best. Sometimes it’s the latest innovation from a proven industry leader and sometimes it’s catching wind of something small and helping breathe fire into a great idea – just like Samsara Spin.
Born from a deep love of cycling and a respect of women’s bodies with a goal to help women invest in their health and well-being, Samsara was founded in 2017. Founded by Janet Hiebert with creative director Sara Jonsdottir, Samsara is a line of athletic wear for indoor and outdoor cycling, designed and produced in Vancouver.
We love Samsara.
From their tanks and bras to leggings and cycling shorts. Their quality Italian fabrics have fashion forward graphics and their designs have the details needed to match your workout whatever the style.
Shorts are available in different lengths to keep you comfortable with just the right amount of padding (or none) to beat fatigue and keep you feeling good on and off the saddle. The chamois is selected specifically to support women’s anatomy and protect the ischiatic (hip) and perineal areas – both common concerns for women on any type of bike. Whether hitting the gym, spin class or the road, Samsara’s bottoms will keep you comfortable so you can keep moving.
Samsara carries comfort and style through their tops. Antimicrobial properties are a part of all their fabrics so there are no worries about hitting a spin class before work and doing the washing later. Samsara’s streamlined jerseys pair with their bottoms to give you a kit worth rocking anywhere you ride. The tops and tanks offer options to keep you cool or covered.
We love that Samsara vision for supporting women’s well-being goes beyond looking good. From founding, the company is motivated by women getting more physically active and healthier, so much so they will give you 50 percent off the same style in a different size. This means you can add muscle or slim down and know they are pumped to support you bettering yourself.
Like JoyVIVA, Samsara is a supporter of organizations and events that work towards a better community. Two big ones for Samsara are the BC Cancer Agency and Face of Today (supporting mental health). Give Samsara a look – created for women by women who love to ride and are conscious about the impact of the apparel they choose to invest in and we love it.
