Flare Clothing Co. Announces New Collection

by 0

Premier Dealer Flare Clothing Co. has announced its new 2016 season range, which includes gear for downhill, enduro and technical riding.


As the press release tells us, “the graphics are bold, fabrics are functional and designs are packed with cool features that only a passionate MTB rider would think to include”.


Roost is Flare's DH range - this is a men's top, £40.

The DH collection is called Roost, which is apparently “about shredding down gnarly Alpine tracks, digging deep on your race run at Fort William, or sending it on a 30ft double at the local woods”. The release tells us that it’s made to last, “especially when things don’t go to plan!”.

Roost is Flare's DH range. These shorts are £70. Other colours also available.

The long-sleeve jerseys are made from Coolmax; they’re baggy enough to accommodate body armour, and the ladies gear has ‘a perfectly tailored cut’. The shorts are 560 dernier Cordura and have nylon stretch panelling, a reinforced seat and an adjustable waistband.

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome.

He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable.

Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles.

He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds.

He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.
