We are super pleased to unveil the 2019 OCA kit! Here you will see something a bit different with subtle touches of inspiration from our region. The design process actually started with the bib shorts. For some reason I had the Arkansas camo theme running through my head. We-love-these-shorts! The design then moves up transitioning to the rolling ridges of the Ozark Mountains. Oh man, how we love the views we get to see while riding these parts. We also added a touch of history on the back top panel of the bib shorts. You will see AUX ARC. “Aux Arc” originated from French explorers when they first mapped this territory. The term means “the big bend,” in the Arkansas River. It eventually was shortened to Ozark. We are so inspired to tell the story. It begins with love of region, followed by love of cycling. Put them together and it is love for the adventures that the bicycle can take you on.
A quick note about the kit materials. It is the most comfortable and high quality kit I have worn. Handmade in-house by Giordana at their factory based in Italy. You will love the quality, workmanship and how this kit fits and feels!
You can pre-order starting today! Please email me at email@example.com to pre-order. Cost of the jersey is $120 and shorts are $110. You can pay via PayPal, check or cash.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors past, present & future. And to everyone who has bought a kit or some other piece of Ozark swag at our online store. You help keep the wheels turning at OCA! Also, to Todd Gill who laid up the design and was a tremendous sounding board during the design process.
