At Swift Industries we’re on a mission to help build a world where bicycles are a widely hailed tool for creating joy, connecting communities and taking concrete climate action. We are pitching in by designing top tier bicycle bags and championing the community. Our team shows up to create this future fueled by ambition, playfulness, integrity and respect.
Swift Industries is a bicycle bag brand from Seattle, WA known for being outspokenly female-owned. Our products are proudly designed and put through the wringer in the Pacific Northwest. We chase adventure by bike and have a deep admiration for high quality gear.
We’re Northwest by Nature.
We started in 2008: two kids with a sewing machine, some chicken scratch sketches, and an insatiable obsession with bicycles. As people around the world have caught wind of Swift, we’ve loved navigating growth, bringing on an amazing team and working long, hard hours to build community around a shared love of cycling.
On a tour down the Pacific Coast in 2006, we drafted what we thought was our traveller’s edict and has turned out to be the tenets of our working philosophy.

Meet the Makers
Martina Brimmer, Cofounder and head honcho
When Martina turned 26, she started Swift Industries and embarked what was has been the biggest adventure of her life. She’s applied the very same passion, curiosity, and innovative problem solving that are demanded in the great outdoors to building her company. Her design skills and sewing accuracy move forward with every new bicycle adventure she takes on. Each year Martina ups the antics as a backcountry explorer and her delight in cycling drives her pursuit of mountain single track, high alpine passes, quiet country roads, and weaving through Seattle.
Jason ‘Goods’, Cofounder and founder of Swift Adventure Co.
Jason ‘Goods’ brings fifteen years as a bike mechanic, the skills of a mountaineering guide, and the contagious stoke of an educator to Swift Industries. He searches high and low for the best outdoor gear to stock our Adventure Headquarters (the Swift Showroom), and scours roads and trails in search of Washington State’s hidden gems and quiet destinations. Jason’s degree in Outdoor Education fuel Swift Adventure Co. and the Stoked Spoke Adventure Series. Every spare minute finds Jason fiddling with gear, refining Swift designs, and on his way to the waters of local rivers for a few peaceful hours of casting. He works best with Loki at his heels.
