pearl izumi mtb wrx

Pearl Izumi MTB WRX is a 300g jacket with a fixed hood that would be as useful as an all-day jacket as it would a lightweight, packable waterproof.

pace 3x3 jacket

The Pace 3x3 jacket is a simple garment cut from a super soft feeling eVent fabric – definitely one of the best fabrics out there.

madison zenith

The Madison Zenith jacket blurs the line between a lightweight packable and an all-day waterproof and it does it well and at a good price.

endura mtr shell

The Endura MTR shell is a superb lightweight, packable jacket that definitely bridges the gap between packable and all-day waterproofs.

scott trail mtb dryo

The Scott Trail MTN Dryo 20 is light enough and packable enough to be an only jacket for mtbers that ride a wide range of conditions.

madison roam

The Madison Roam is on the heavy side of things and as such the best for colder weather where the mesh-lined 2-layer fabric really comes into its own.

endura mt500 ii jacket

The Endura MT500 II jacket offers protection in really foul weather, with a great hood, plenty of ventilation and loads of stretch in the fabric.

Well, almost un-climables, anyway: techie tough and downright brutal uphills to test your mettle.

Stake Pass is brutal, intimidating, and downright hard, Stake Pass is also rewarding, fun to ride (when you’re not pushing) and achingly beautiful.

Ben Damph's 24km doesn’t sound much, but this is a tough route, with a big climb and a big descent. The days are really short here in winter.

With barely any climbing and just 11km long, this Clwydian Hills route looks a pushover. But the reality is a bite-size chunk of genuinely great MTBing.

lynmouth route

Slippery singletrack, rocky horror shows, huge sea views and some delightful wooded combes; this Lynmouth route has the lot.
