If you’re a female mountain biker you’ve probably noticed that getting hold of proper kit isn’t all that straightforward. There’s a definite shortage of the right-shaped clothing out there. In a possibly connected phenomenon there’s a bit of a shortage of women riders too, but that’s another story.
Of course, if you look hard enough there is stuff out there. And that’s exactly what Debbie Burton’s done. She got so cheesed off with the availability of girl’s bike kit that she hunted out the cream of the clothing crop and gathered it all together in a new on-line shop…
The freshly-launched minx-girl.com has products from top manufacturers like Sugoi, Pearl Izumi, Nema and Endura. The range is selected with as much of an eye for style as for function, and everything comes with recommendations for other things to assemble a coordinated wardrobe. Plus there are some fairly unique lines like Pearl Izumi’s “skorts” (which are pretty much what you might be thinking) and Timbuk2’s yoga mat-specific courier bag.
Buying clothes on-line is potentially fraught with difficulties, but there’s comprehensive sizing advice and a straightforward returns policy. Check it all out at www.minx-girl.com.
