Some call it Type 2 fun. It’s those experiences that feel tough and involve a fair amount of suffering in the moment, but that you’ll look back on as a grand ol’ time. Mountain biking can often feel like that. Those sweaty, lung-busting climbs, the broken chain miles from nowhere. That time you ran out of food or went over the handlebars on a technical descent. You always need the hard times to appreciate how good it feels to reach the peak, to bomb the downhill, to drink a beer afterward. If you’re a Type 2 fun kind of person, we’ve got you covered.
Shaw Shirt / Deckard Short
Downhill mountain bikers need protection from the elements—sun, wind, dirt. The long-sleeved Shaw Shirt has active stretch, UV protection, and breathability. The Deckard Short comes with a longer, 13.5-inch, inseam and durable MTB-specific fabric built for descents and the ascents to get you there. So, if you’re a mountain biker who wants a kit that’s dialed and ready for the ups and downs, this is it.
The short-sleeved Garrett Shirt has a drop tail in the back to give you coverage when you’re in the saddle. Pair it with the Goodson Short, made with a stretch ripstop nylon for mobility and durability, plus an internal adjustable belt. This is the duo you’ll go to day after day.
You’re a mountain biker, but you don’t necessarily need to wear a kit that screams “I just got a PR!” The short-sleeved, snap-button Anderson Shirt has a laid-back style and all the trappings of a technical active tee, like breathable, quick-drying fabric and enough stretch to stand up in the saddle. Pair it with the versatile Preston Short—which is purpose built with a long inseam for bombing downhills but climbs like a champ without overheating, too.
The coolest thing about our well-loved Nash Shirt: It can go a few wears between laundry cycles if you’re on the road, thanks to a Polygiene treatment that fights the bacteria that causes body odor at its source. Mostly, it’s a no-fuss short-sleeve tech T for summer’s high-energy pursuits, like biking or running. Wear the Nash with the Safari Short—a do-everything, quick-drying short that can ride, run, or swim. You can hop on your bike, then jump in the lake without a change.
