Royal Racing


Circles, synonymous with bike riding, not just gears, wheels and the pattern of our natural engines but many things in life begin and return at their roots. Most of us started out with brick and board ramps, shovelling jumps in the woods and blasting around with our mates, it’s the basics that are the most fun.

Loosedog and Ratboy have come full circle, kicking off with, and coming back to those sessions with their mates in the woods. They need no introduction to anyone that follows this biking world and here at Royal we’re stoked to have them back in the family.

As well as representing Royal the boys will take on product development roles with our designer Nick Bayliss who's been ever present at Royal since starting the brand with Steve Peat. Part of this process will be some limited edition runs of Royal X 50:01 collab jerseys, expect the first designs to drop in the spring.

Royal Racing

Part of their role with Royal will be product development across the range along with some limited edition collaborations with 50:01. These jerseys will be designed and manufactured in the UK using environmentally friendly materials wherever possible and produced in limited runs.

 Is Bryceland now on SRAM? He is on what looks like a new Lyrik and has Guide or Code brakes?
  • + 1
 I asked myself the same thing...
  • + 8
 Well I don’t think he’s on syndicate anymore since he isn’t racing (which was fox and still is fox sponsored) so I guess he can use whatever now?
  • + 2
 Loosedog has been riding SRAM and Rockshox for a while now so I am guessing he might be joining up with whoever is his sponsor.
  • - 3
 No he’s still on fox. He rides a sram drivetrain but he’s not sponsored by them. What looked like a lyric was actually a blacked out fox 36, if you look closely you can see the decals.
  • - 1
 Nvm I’m wrong he’s just riding sram stuff cause that’s what Santa Cruz stocked on the bike
  • + 1
 Yeah he’s on SRAM/Rock Shox. Taken from a very good source (one of his local bike shops)!

 How hard is it to make a helmet that doesn't look like a shovel fukked a bed pan?
  • + 19
 Appropriate for a Peaty owned company to have Ratty wearing the gear.

Royal, please make a jersey with three back pockets again. I’ve got one of the early ones with the zip pocket on the outside of the middle rear pocket. It’s a classic and very functional. Thanks!

 Steve peat does not own Royal anymore.

 @speeder01 ..It's like a fanny pack jersey

 @RedRedRe: Hi RedRedRe ,sorry but you are incorrect - Steve is actually a significant investor and actively involved in all aspects of the business.
  • + 13
 Something a bit less corporate for the less than corporate lads. Seems Fitting.

Next they’ll be off Santa Cruz and on 24Seven, Slack, it’s corporate policy.

 Yeah cool story, but those 7 IDP helmets look ugly AF... Sorry, but wish you all the best boys!!! #DRINKWATER #DRINKBEER #IDK #DRINKWHATEVERYOUWANT

 do you know what drink water is about? it has nothing to do with beer or alcohol. might wanna look into that one more, cool group of riders (aka snowboarders) trying to do something really awesome!

 @jtayabji: It was reaction to energy and sweet drinks invading snowboarding scene, such as monster, red bull, mountain dew..

 Impossible for it to look as awful as that Fox Metah duck bill helmet that they were on last year (yes I know Rat usually still wore the flux).

 Yeah but Loose's says Cock Sux on it so it's cool mkay

2017? I think it might be a little late for that.

 If anyone can time travel, or at least imagine they are, it's going to be Ratboy.

 They may have changed the article. Either way, if it is made in the UK out of environmental friendly materials, that's one thing I'd like over most sports garment. Wish them all the best.

 That’s good, all they need to do now is sign up with Orange and ditch Santa Cruz

 Yeah and ride a chrome 222 with 26 inch wheels..?
  • + 1
 @bonkywonky: That’s funny, was thinking more new, but now you mention it. m.youtube.com/watch?v=JOlc0a2eVTo

Orange are probably more in the same vein as Royal in a lot of ways.
  • + 2
 @nrpuk: Still associate Peaty with that old 222, even though he has way more years on the V10 by now. Same goes for RR gear, I remember that blue red and white kit they raced in, early 00s.

This probably means I'm getting old though..
