While mountain biking is truly an all-weather sport, you just can’t beat a dry dusty day on the trails with the sun beckoning for you to stay outside. As with any sports, you get hot and in summer regulating your body temperature is key, so you need to find clothing that’s functional and that doesn’t compromise on super slick style.
Fortunately, for us mountain bikers, and more specifically, female riders, we have seen waves of awesome MTB kit come crashing into the market. However, there’s one brand that has made a big splash, and that’s ION.
After great success in the surf industry, ION ventured onto dry land to extend their action sports apparel into mountain biking. Usually, when a brand ventures into new sports, it takes time for trial and error to rotate through until kit is where it needs to be for the market, but ION appears to have hit the nail on the head.
Known for their bright colours, understated designs and feminine fits, we take the new Scrub jersey and Traze shorts out on the trails to see if they live up to their predecessors.
