- MTB clothing brands of the early to mid 90s
Remember those gloves that were neoprene but with open fingers? They just had finger fronts and looped around just under the nail… There was also an advert / poster for them which really epitomised MTBing for me back then; dusty, sweaty, pumped forearms with cuts and scratches. best rides.
I also had a pertex shell which was half green / half purple… Something lizard?

Was wearing my Rox hoodie only today. “My nuts are titanium” it declares on the back.
What about Redley skate shoes, as per JMC in Dirt. Still got my blue & red pair but they’re pretty faded now. I believe they went out of business, if I google Redley now I just get lots of handbags with a wee dog on them!
Oakley Frogskins- yep, the third set of prescription lenses died last year and the frame is now 30% superglue.
OF3 gloves, fantastic. Loved the long/short finger thing.Posted 7 years ago
MBUK T-shirts- check.
AXO Ponys – check.
And the saddest loss of all, my Poobahs that died in October 🙁AnalogueAndyMember
Freestyle gore jackets
~Great company, they used to have a stall at the Newnham Park events – based in Plymouth IIRC. They made me a custom jacket with freaky long arms.
I asked on here if anyone knew what happened to them. Got a big grant of some kind and mysteriously went bust soon after
Still got the original ‘Team Xtreme’ jerseys made for us by Been Bag.Posted 7 years ago
