mountain bike clothing for womenfanyuying

Sure, on average we’re shorter, but there’s more to it than that – we’ve got disproportionately bigger hips, shorter arms and legs, longer torsos and smaller heads for our height. You can’t just buy small men’s or children’s kit and expect it to work as well then, and that’s what makes women’s-specific gear a must for those of us who shred. Luckily, brands have come a long way in a few short years and there’s a wash of excellent riding gear out there. Here’s our pick.
They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but we think a good pair of mountain bike shorts can be too. If you’re spending big hours in the saddle, good shorts can be the difference between comfort and misery.
