With all the major manufacturers keen to show off their latest bike wear collections, Sharon went on a mission to look at what’s new for women and what will be cool to wear in the saddle next season.
The Eurobike fashion show is the first clue to the colour palette for 2015. Last year, the sceptics among us thought that bright colours were too ‘Euro’ for us and that black and red were going far enough. It now seems that even the more conservative seem to be embracing colour with confidence. All-black baggies are definitely on the decline.
Before you remind us that looks are not the whole story, be assured that the girls at Singletrack will be looking forward to product testing the new kit for functionality as soon as it is available.
Maloja’s lifestyle range celebrates the brand’s alpine roots and 10 years in the outdoor clothing business, with the ‘Mount-10’ collection for 2015. With an eye for design detail and a focus on sustainably produced fabric and functionality, Maloja has used this anniversary to reinterpret highlighted products of previous ranges. The good news for those who like clothing without a conscience, is an increase in the number of UK stockists next year.
Sweet Protection’s new female-specific range
After going to great lengths to find out what makes us happy Sweet Protection was proud to show off its new range of female-specific bike wear. With a reputation for quality fabrics and construction and some girls already poaching the Hunter Enduro shorts from the mens range, I think this could be the start of something good.
