AliExpress Independent Sellers

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Sat, 14 Nov 2020 09:59:36 -0300

Not sure the title makes much sense - these are AliExpress stores that sell
their own branded cycling tops (rather than copies of other people's designs).
This list isn't exhaustive and may contain errors, but it's a useful starting
point for trying to find sellers that are doing more than pushing copies (you
might hope these companies are more invested in making something exceptional -
perhaps better quality materials, a different style, or better service).

There's quite a mix here and no obvious way to group, so ordered
alphabetically by name.  I haven't bought from most of these and make no
guarantees about quality or reliability.


Cheji -

All products are own brand.  Designs vary (perhaps aimed at non-western

Cusroo -

Most products are own brand.  Designs vary.  Indonesian?

Darevie -

All(?) products are own brand, with some shots using own model.  Designs tend
to be geometric patterns.

Frenesi -

Most of the products are copies, but those branded Frenesi appear to be
own-designs.  Generally simple designs.


All(?) products are own brand.  Designs are generally garish novelty items.


All products are own brand.  Designs vary (like Cheji, maybe aimed at
non-western market?).

Pimmer -

A few products are own brand (beware - many appear own brand but contain other
company logos on close inspection).  Minimal designs.  Possibly experimenting
with different fabrics / cuts (see for example).

Racmmer -

All products are own brand.  Designs are, well, mixed.  Well known and high
volume.  A bit more mass-market that Santic or Spexcel (but I Like their pro

Rion -

All(?) products are own brand, with some shots using own model.  Designs are
basic.  Seems to be fairly well known / large volume (like Santic, Spexcel,

Runchita -

Most products are copies, but Runchita in the catgeory menu selects
own-branded.  Designs vary.

Santic -

All products are own brand.  Has an identity outside Aliexpress and tends to
be more expensive.  Shots with own model.  Generally simpler designs.

Spexcel -

All(?) products are own brand, with some shots using own model.  Designs are
simple (Rapha influenced?) with horizontal bands.  Have bought from here -
seem to experiment more with different fabrics and designs.  Fairly well

Swiftofo -

All products are own brand.  Designs are generally simple, but looks like they
may be aiming at a more athletic (triathlon?) market - more athletic cuts and
different materials.  Many shots using own model.
