Sombrio Freeride Scholarship

The sombrio Freeride Scholarship
Spreading the Spirit of Freeride

Introducing the Sombrio Freeride Scholarship in partnership with IMBA Canada—a free ride to a week-long summer bike camp in Whistler, BC, awarded to a young Canadian rider who embodies the spirit of freeride. The spirit of freeride is all about being creative, pushing the limits, and having fun along the way. It’s about sharing a passion for life on two wheels with others.

*Sombrio will donate 10% of the proceeds from the 2018 sales of Sombrio Second Decade Jerseys or Tees in Canada to IMBA Canada’s 2019 Sombrio Freeride scholarship program to send at least one young athlete age 13-18 to a week-long mountain bike camp in Summer 2019. Donation amounts will be calculated as follows: For sales made directly by Sombrio to a consumer in Canada through Sombrio’s website or telephone customer service, Sombrio will donate 10% of the retail price charged by Sombrio to the consumer. For sales made by Sombrio to authorized Sombrio retail dealers in Canada, Sombrio will donate 10% of the wholesale price charged by Sombrio to the dealer. If a consumer buys this product from the dealer, they will be supporting the spirit of freeride, but a second additional donation will not be made by the dealer.
