Why Tirade?

It's a great word and makes a great name for a cycling wear company.
For a full explanation, see our About Us page.

What does Red Ass even mean?

Red Ass is a common term in Texas. It means you are intensely competitive (or just intense in general).
If you are red ass, you don't do anything half-way.

How do you make your gear?

The short story is…we design all our gear in Texas and then send it to Wisconsin for manufacturing. We have a close partnership with Borah Teamwear and they do a fantastic job taking care of every production detail. As a result, our designs kick ass and are built to last. We use the finest materials (e.g. Italian fabrics) and produce it all in the USA.

How do I determine fit?

We design our kits to for an athletic build. This is to say, they fit more snug than other brands. We have full sizing detals our on our Sizing Chart Page .


We know you want your gear ASAP. And we feel exactly the same way. Thus, we package and ship your order within 1-5 business days. We ship Monday-Friday so, if you live within the continental US, you should receive your order with 2-3 days after it leaves our warehouse.

We ship via US Postal Service and UPS and provide enough options to give you flexibility in price and speed of shipment delivery.

This depends on what shipping option you select. After we ship, we will send you a tracking number with an estimated arrival date. The bottom line is, you won't have to wait long.

Yes. After we fulfill the order, you will receive an email with the tracking information.

Our shipping partners determine shipping fees. How they make these fee determinations most likely requires complex math combining your geolocation's longitude, latitude degrees with the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.

Yes we do. You can select to ship via DHL or US Postal Service (USPS).
