Route Werks creates gear that makes getting outside as easy as possible.
We design all of our products in-house, oftentimes producing our first prototypes by hand in our Rhode Island studio. Our talented team of designers, engineers, and researchers are outdoor enthusiasts with years of experience developing and delivering products that solve real problems in a meaningful and sustainable way.
Make it Last
We believe in creating objects that endure. Our love for good design is informed by our love for the planet we play in. As product (ab)users ourselves, we know the frustration of nondurable materials and gear that can’t be repaired. We create objects with simple, durable components that can be repaired rather than entire products that need to be replaced, reducing the impact on our planet and your wallet.
Make It Together
We are a diverse group whose collaborative efforts result in something remarkable. We believe the inputs that come from contributors with different backgrounds and experiences lead to designs that cannot be replicated in any other way.
Whether it’s our morning bike commute, sneaking in waves before work, or climbing some extra pitches in the dark, our team loves to get outside. It’s safe to say: we’re passionate about adventuring, and everything has the potential to become an adventure.
