Helmets, baggy shorts, bib shorts, balms, hand guards and more!
This week has seen a bumper package from Mavic arrive here at MBR headquarters.
Mavic Crossmax Pro helmet
Top of the helmet tree is the Crossmax Pro. Designed for all-round abuse, it’s used by Mavic’s top sponsored enduro riders. Boasting a memory foam padding system, full coverage and goggle friendly shape, it’s pretty light to boot…
Mavic Crossride helmet
More for general trail riding. The Crossride features similar styling to the Crossmax but with a fixed position (removable) peak, a more traditional padding system and a wallet friendly price…
Mavic Crossmax Pro jersey
Made from abrasion resistant and comfy Trail Wick fabric. It’s cut loose to retain freedom of movement when wearing pads. This one matches the helmet for the complete ‘pro’ look…
Mavic Crossride jersey
Feeling more like your favourite t-shirt than a technical riding jersey. The Crossride jersey is made of a soft and stretchy material that gives it a style that looks good in the pub. Available in two sleeve lengths plus a hooded version, in a load of colours…
Mavic Crossmax Pro short
These shorts are loose! Made to be worn with knee pads, the legs are super baggy for no restriction. Two open hip pockets plus two closable cargo pockets mean you can stuff as many sausage rolls and pies in your pockets as you need…
Mavic Crossride short
A slimmer cut makes the Crossride a less rowdy short but nonetheless equally at home playing in the dirt. Only one small bum pocket means pie carrying is restricted but Mavic has designed the Crossride to be compatible with their hydration belt…
Mavic XA Pro Under Bib short
When you need maximum comfort for long days in the saddle, the XA Pro Bib minimises the tightness that can be felt when using a waisted liner short. Mesh panels keep things cool and the padding is suitably luxurious…
Muc-Off Athlete Performance range
Price: from £13.99
Muc-Off, the fine purveyor of everything cleaning has been working on its Athlete Performance range for the last couple of years. It now includes everything to keep you in tip top shape whilst competing including warm up creams and recovery balms. Muc-Off has recently extended the range to feature (ahem) ‘grooming’ products such as shaving cream and moisturisers. Whilst mountain bikers have a reputation for being slightly on the feral side, there are some (male and female) out there that do occasionally shave or are comfortable with moisturising…
Specialized Enduro Comp jersey
The Enduro Comp jersey is made from coffee. This might sound odd, but Specialized make the jersey from environmentally friendly recycled carbon and coffee yarns to neutralise odour and shift sweat. It looks good as well…
Specialized Enduro comp short
Super understated with just one tiny logo means the Enduro Comp can become a go to pair of shorts for regular riding. Made from water repellant fabric they feature a cut that puts them between an XC short and full on downhill…
AVS Hand Guards
Price: full kit €55
You need these in your life, especially now the trees seem to be sprouting those handlebar snagging branches. As used by Sam Hill and Nico Vouilloz, these hand guards from French company AVS are available in a rainbow of colours and are made of impact resistant plastic with aluminium mounting hardware.
That’s it for this week… now go ride!
