Welcome to our first ever instalment of ‘Offbike’. We think that mountain biking culture and lifestyle should be just as prominent off the bike as it is on the bike and this week we have some of the latest gear from Giro.
Giro have a large range of clothing that we think is great for casual wear. We picked the Mobility Trouser, matched with the Riddance Mid shoes and a couple of their latest shirts.
The comfortable Mobility Trouser is designed for both on and off the bike and is made of 97% cotton with 3% lycra thrown in to make the slim-fit pants more flexible when you’re moving around. They feature a Durable Water Repellent coating, reinforced inseam, and a secure zip pocket (which is big enough for a phone) and comes in three colors: Dark Shadow, Dress Blue, & Dark Maroon.
The Riddance Mid shoe, while being designed for riding, is just at home off the bike too. They’re water-resistant while still being breathable and also feature a Vibram outsole, heel and toe reinforcements, laces with an additional strap, and arch support. They come in two colorways: Dark Shadow/Black & Dark Red/Black.
T-Shirts – we love t-shirts and think you can never have too many in your collection. The Black Ghouls features a technical fabric that is 60% cotton & 40% polyester with wicking properties to help keep your skin both dry and cool. The Venture Jersey was a little something extra we wanted to try and maybe outside-the-box somewhat and comes in black, blue, and dark red. While not technically being a “t-shirt” we think that the jersey can add a little something extra technical for t-shirt wear. Being a blend of 84% polyester, 11% merino wool, & 5% spandex the Venture is very much a performance orientated design so we think it would be great for those times when you need a little extra tech.
