It wasn’t too long ago that our small minority of female mountain bikers were crying out for a wider variety of kit. No more did we want to wear men’s or children’s clothing, we wanted function, style, shape and sizes. A short time on, and we’re flooded with amazing kit to shred in. With kits like the new DHaRCO, how could we not be happy?
It’s such a great time to get involved with mountain biking. Brands are producing awesome kit, trail centres are popping up all over the country and more efforts are being made to promote and encourage women’s participation.
As we’re considered to be a fledgling community, we’re still finding our feet in the grand scheme of mountain biking. The women’s market is quickly growing, and as of yet, is still trying to establish it’s own identity – which is pretty exciting to be apart of.
One major area to flourish is in the clothing industry. Women’s MTB kit is getting prettier, more shapely and more practical. With this is mind, we were stoked to test out the new Gravity shorts and jersey from DHaRCO.
