Mtb clothes (that don't look ridiculous)?
« on: November 17, 2016, 05:14:30 AM »
So the jean shorts and tee shirt are getting a bit old on longer mtb rides. I was considering getting some kit that might breathe better/be more fit for purpose but I can't find shit that doesn't look like it was made for a power ranger or motocross bogan. Could someone please find me some mtb shorts which meet these requirements:

-Doesn't look like they were made for someone into DC shoes and energy drinks
-Will cover knee pads but not be any longer than they need to be
-Prefer no liner
-Black and as close to no graphics as possible

Cheers

My Fox gear does the job, the shorts sit at a good length, the liner is usually removable and the branding is subtle. The long sleeve jersey is sort of fitted, but the branding is pretty heavy so might not be what you are looking for.

Fox stuff has always fallen to bits for me, best shorts ive had were altura attacks, they're all black, pretty light weight, good fit and completely waterproof as a bonus too. I had them for about 2yrs as my only shorts and they actually stayed waterproof until i wore out the arse.

Hard to knock the twoi ree aliexpress knock offs if you're on a budget, they're probably same quality as the proper ones...

Check out the Sombrio gear. Some of the stuff looks like everyday clothes. I personally just wear all black baggies with removable shammy. Tech shirts a dialed for hot or wet days. I usually put one on under my tshirt. Nice gear do make a world of difference. I did the cutoffs and tshirts for far too long. The day became about the riding once I started using proper gear. Good luck!

I've got some Endura stuff through work. It's pretty good as far as being fairly cheap and mostly black.
