About Us


We at Lightweights believe we are meant to play outside, to be active, to have fun, to be healthy, to feel the sun, the rain, the wind on our faces, to play in the surf and in the snow. We are meant to walk or ride our bikes to work and school under our own power. We are meant to be conscious, awake and alive. We are not meant to be heavy and dark. We are meant to be brilliant and light!
