Mountain bike clothing deals
Here we round up our hand-picked selection of the best deals on decent mountain bike clothing that we’ve found on the internet this month. Keep checking back here often as you may get to see the sales before everyone else does – and before they sell out!
Diadora X Trivex Plus II MTB shoes –
£104.99 – £46.49
Efficient but not overly stiff soled shoes from Diadora. Rugged sole, two Velcro straps and a classic top strap with ratchet.
dhb short sleeve seamless base layer –
£25.00 – £12.49
Base layers aren’t just for joggers and roadies. A close-fitting base layer can really remove the bustle and chafe of some mountain bike clothing. Also really helps with sweat transfer and temperature regulation.
Uvex Sportstyle 704 sunglasses –
£34.99 – £13.99
Not-too-dark shades ideal for British mountain biking. Features adjustable earpieces and soft nose pads to help you achieve an invisibly comfy fit. Upper corner vents reduce fogging.
Funkier WJ-1306 Waterproof Rain Jacket –
£49.99 – £19.99
100% waterproof nylon fabric. Waterproof zips. Armpit zipped vents. Shoulder vent slit too. Only available in red but everyone likes red don’t they?
Bell Stoker helmet –
£79.99 – £48.49
One of the better vented helmets in the modern trail-enduro vibe. The stumpy visor may not be to everyone’s taste but if you see beyond that, there’s real quality and performance to this lid.
Endura MTR Windproof Long Sleeve Jersey –
£70.00 – £34.99
A great all-round jersey that works equally well off the bike, on a road bike, as a piece of commuter wear or indeed on a mountain bike. The windproof front will keep your core warm through chilly times.
Altura Progel 3/4 Bib Shorts –
£64.99 – £32.49
Much as with base layers, bib shorts can be overlooked by mountain bikers because they assume it’s clothing for road cyclists. Uh-uh. Hidden away under a lot experienced mountain bikers’ outer layers (and knee pads) is a pair of 3/4 bib shorts like these.
Louis Garneau Ditch full finger gloves –
£19.99 – £5.99
Okay so these probably aren’t going to see the light of day until next spring BUT… well, just look at the price. Just over a fiver for a nice set of summer gloves.
Endura SingleTrack Merino short sleeve jersey –
£67.99 – £33.14
£68 for a short sleeve jersey is rather steep. Heck, £33 for a short sleeve jersey isn’t exactly headline news. So why are we featuring this garment? Well, for a start it looks lovely. Stylish as flip. The key ingredient however is the merino wool. Costly but oh-so-worth-it.
Endura Hummvee Lite 3/4 Baggy Shorts –
£59.99 – £28.97
Below-the-knee baggies used to be all the rage on the UK trail scene. Then knee pads became ubiquitous and early knee pads were bulky affairs that didn’t mate well with 3/4 baggies. But if you rock slim, modern knee pads/sleeves then you can sport 3/4s once again.
Dare2b Prewarn Jacket –
£60.00 – £18.00
Showerproof casual jacket that can also turn its hand to a bit of on-bike use too. Don’t expect storm-worthy protection but as a simple jacket for dealing with most inclement spells, it’s well worth getting.
Cube Action Team knee pads –
£79.99 – £39.99
Knee pads appear to be one of those new must-have things that have gone up in price significantly over the past couple of years. There’s a reason for this; they’re massively better than they used to be. More sophisticated in both design, tailoring and construction. Consequently, they’re a premium garment that most people prefer to buy in the sales rather than at full whack.
Don’t forget, we’ll be updating this page every month. So if your riding wardrobe is in a bit of a state then it might be worth thinking about bookmarking this page and checking back every now and then to keep on top of the best clothing sales out there.
