New technical trail wear line produced in-house, with jersey and shorts options for men and women. Rocky Mountain unveils new Technical Collection clothing line
Canadian bike brand Rocky Mountain has just released a new range of technical bike wear, developed in-house and boasting a range of fabrics and features designed for the rigours of North Shore – and global – mountain biking.

There’s also a ‘pass-through’ zone on the right thigh that allows wearers to reach through the shorts to access pockets in the liner shorts – say, for example, in the Rocky Mountain Darkside liner).
Finally, DWR finish provides a degree of protection from showers, and the shorts have an integrated RECCO reflector.
