Mons Royale Mountain Biking Clothes

In 2009, professional skier Hamish Acland realised a simple idea – there wasn’t a base layer brand that delivered both style and performance. Seizing the opportunity, Mons Royale was created to bring a fearless, design-led style to high-performance merino. The Freeski and snowboard community quickly adopted the brand
When the Mons Royale team discovered that their clothing was also being worn by mountain bikers they released a bike specific range which is perfect for year round biking and has excellent features like merino mesh back panels and integrated sunglasses wipe
Mons Royale is now the title sponsor of the dual speed and style event at Crankworx Rotorua and Innsbruck. This global event is the biggest in mountain biking and brings the worlds best bikers to 4 venues. Crankworx has 4.6 million viewers
Mons Royale also have a group of team riders who test out and wear their products. Their riders include Conor Macfarlane, Adrien Loron, Jakub Vencl and Tina Gerber

The Mons Royale clothing range is designed to be versatile and stylish so you can wear them on the dirt tracks but also for everyday wear too

"We design garments that people love to wear everyday, not just the days they're on the hill. Garments that work as well on the mountain as they look good on the street. We do this with merino wool because its way better than any other fabric - it is super soft, warm (even when wet), ultra breathable, helps to regulate your temperature and doesn't stink!" - Hannah Aubrey, Mons Royale Creative Director

Merino wool clothing is perfect for mountain biking because:

Temperature Regulating

Merino is an active fibre which takes in factors such as the wearer's body temperature and external conditions. In cold conditions your merino thermals will keep you warm and in warm conditions they will keep you cool

Moisture Resistant

Merino wicks moisture away from the skin and into the atmosphere meaning you'll be kept drier for longer. Merino can absorb up to 35% of its own weight before feeling wet!

Odour Resistant

The lanolin in merino wool prevents mildew and bacteria from building up on your clothing and any odour molecules are absorbed into the merino fibre stopping the build up on unpleasant odours. Great for if you're going from biking to the pub!

UV Resistant

Merino wool has a UV factor of between 30 and 50 UVP because the fibres absorb UV radiation throughout the entire UV spectrum, adding a layer of protection against harmful rays

Long Lasting

Although merino wool clothing tends to be more expensive than synthetic fibres it will last a lot longer meaning you won't have to repurchase every few months. Merino wool fibres can bend over 20,000 times without breaking so won't lose shape or get holes

Soft and Comfortable

Merino wool is super soft against the skin and unlike traditional wool it doesn't irritate or itch the skin. The merino fibres are so fine that when they come into contact with the skin they bend. Merino is also hypoallergenic meaning it's great for people with eczema and allergies
