Sustainable Performance Shorts Layer : Mountainsilk™ Procycle
Both our men's bibs and women's shorts are made from Mountainsilk™ Procycle. Mountainsilk™ Procycle maximises the performance potential of the wearer, by promoting the balanced regulation of body temperature while providing superior protection and comfort in competitive, extreme conditions. At the core of Mountainsilk™ Procycle is an inner base layer of 100% sustainably* sourced Merino, which is linked with a protective outer-layer of technical performance tactel blended with lycra.
“I have been researching and developing sustainable sportswear for the last 10 years since I gained a Master of Arts specialising in Performance Sportswear Design. Using the latest high performance textile technology we have designed our shorts and bibs to be just as comfortable whether you are riding on a scorching hot day or if you get caught out in the mountains in the middle of winter, as you can face any kind of weather situation on your bike. Training all winter for a five day stage race known for it’s terribly fickle weather, it became really important to me to design a short that would keep me both cool and comfortable, or warm and toasty, so it doesn’t matter what the weather conditions throw at you.”
