Women’s MTB trail t-shirt group test

If you are looking for a comfortable, understated tee-shirt that performs excellently on and off the bike, then the Trail42 Classic Tech-T  is for you.

The first thing I noticed was the length; as a fairly tall woman, I sometimes find that t-shirts and jerseys run a little short, but that wasn’t a problem here as the Trail 42 trail tee sat comfortably over my hips, and covered my lower back while leaning forward on the bike.

The beautiful soft fabric is a mixture of bamboo and organic cotton, and performed well – several spins round the course of the Brighton Big Dog race saw it keep it’s shape without chaffing or rubbing, it dried off quickly afterwards, and remained smell-free.

I loved the deep aubergine purple colour; it’s an unusual shade to see on bike gear, and the contrasting stitching is a nice detail. The slightly scooped neckline is a flattering and practical level; low enough too look good and give you some ventilation, high enough to keep your chest covered, and stop bag straps etc rubbing.

The medium sized t-shirt was a great fit on my (upper end of) curvy size 12 frame.

Verdict: Great cut, great performance, and a great understated style

Favourite feature: There’s lots to love in the thoughtful design of this shirt, but I particularly love the length of this tee.

Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large
Colours available: Aubergine
Price: £35.00

About Trail42

Based near the Forest of Dean, Trail42 was set up by Ruth and Rich Hallett, keen mountain bikers who saw a need for practical, ethical performance gear for riding.

What Trail42 say

Our women’s technical t-shirt is made of natural fibres. On its own it keeps you cool in the summer or can be used as a base layer in the winter. It’s casual look and resistance to odour means it can be worn both on the trail and in the pub!
