Female mountain bikers rejoice–apparel designed for our contingent of riders is finally improving. The clothing coming out next spring covers a wide range of styles, and is designed around practical fabrics, flattering fits and color combinations that have actually been thought-out instead of being an afterthought.
Look for henleys, flannels and packable wind breakers, tank tops, camouflage patterns and unique textures to show up in your local bike shop.
Here's a preview of some of the apparel exhibitors at the Interbike tradeshow have on display this week:
Sombrio also returned to Interbike with its new owner, Sugoi, and showed a full line of women’s gravity- and freeride-inspired shorts, jerseys and tanks. Read more here.
Another brand to watch for is Shredly, a one-women operation out of Carbondale, Colorado, that is selling unique, board-short-inspired bottoms and lightweight, versatile jerseys and tanks. We got a quick preview of the line here at the show, and will be following up with a full story soon on bikemag.com.
