Each kit is as unique as the individuals themselves. They're available for purchase on the Garneau website, and the team is planning to wear them at a non-UCI event this summer.

Former pro athlete Adrienne Schneider said she was looking for something that didn't scream "Racer" but was still comfortable, when she stumbled across Maloja. She now works for the comapny in the USA.

The anatomical characteristics of the female pelvis were analysed in the course of long-term studies and the results led Ergon to completely redesign their women s saddles.
Ergon completely redesigned their women's line under the direction of sports scientist Janina Haas. Stay tuned for an interview with her!

 Just like to add a shoutout to Martha Gill, took 3rd in the DH at age 21, and would've been on the podium in the slalom but dropped her chain in the finals. Maybe include her too if you're doing the fastest women at sea otter?

 Good call, added in a photo of her!

 Dropped chain you say? Well we can fix that here at MRP! Give me a shout, Martha.

 While he's pointing this out I'd like to mention Samantha kingshill who took 5th in the Dh. She's 19 (I think) has been racing pro woman's since 16 and has won the Nevada state championship a few times in past years. Also she will send big shit!

 Maloja line looks great! How about some dickie shorts type for men? This is the big missing niche of mtb...casual looking but hi tech materials.

 Thank you Troy Lee and Sombrio for making some gear that isn't pink or covered in flowers. Options for those of us who don't want that kind of thing.
  • 2 0
 Maybe just me but the women's clothing is better looking then any men's gear. If they took that style of minimalism and occasionally some decent graphics with guy friendly colors I'd buy it. I'm sick of being a walking moto advertisement.

 That dharco hawaiian kit is [insert 1000 fire emojis here]. What gets me about women's kit is not that it often has flowers on it, but that they are always tasteful and sincere flowers. When they put flowers on men's kit, they are loud, ironic flowers. I have always wanted loud, ironic flowers on something that accommodates boobs and a short torso.

Too bad I'm cheap and I ride in cotton t-shirts.

 DHaRCO rocks, there's no sexism when most of the design with flamingos, feathers or flowers on both the womens and the mens! Wicked comforable too!

 She’s hot AF and it’s the damn truth.
  • 5 6
 @pinkbicycle: I’ve no idea why you’ve been down voted. It just is true, like it of not, she’s as tidy as you could imagine. Made even better by the fact she would keep up on the trails. Not sure about the bedroom mind you....

 @Lejla: so true, pay them a compliment and they’re angry, or more likely blokes too far up their own jacksy are offended on their wives behalf as it seems the right thing to do in the current climate.

  • 3 3
 @cunning-linguist: oh? you think thats a compliment ? and that women should be eternally grateful that you, most manly of men, mr. devastatingly handsome himself, would even so much as look in our direction, much less give us the one thing we desire most, a compliment??? be still hearts.... this man is handing out "compliments"
Your online presence reeks of Incel.
  • 3 1
 @POWsLAYER: if you think that saying someone is physically attractive is equal to incel you are seriously f*cked in the head. Time to crawl out of your militantly politically correct ass.
  • 3 1
 @POWsLAYER: just gonna hazard a guess you’re a feminist?

If I told you you were an ugly c*nt you’d like it more?

I’m not in the game of pissing on people’s chips, but this time, what would women like?

If I said she’s good on a bike but in no way attractive, would that be better? That’d be a lie mind you...

I really have no idea what you’re getting at.

Go ride n chill out.
  • 2 1
 @POWsLAYER: Also, I’ve just looked up “Incel”. Let’s not use rhetoric that is only for the feminist army shall we?

I have a happy and rad as wife and a wicked young family. A rad house, awesome cars, bikes, cat and a cool family. So go shove your assumptions up your rotten n dry vagina.
  • 1 2
 @cunning-linguist: your objectification of her is my issue. She is a professional rider, her looks are irrelevant so why even bring them into the convo much less exclusively. Her riding speaks for itself, but if you wan to chime in about how you see her as an excellent rider I don't see anything afoot with that.

You are in the habit of pissing peoples chips, its literally what you do on this platform.

Lets look back at mass murderers since the '90s and you can objectively connect every single one of them to the Incel communities the lurk on the internet so for you with all of you fragility and privilege to sit there and say its only rhetoric for the feminist army just furthers my point that you shouldn't even be commenting in this thread. Nothing stated above affects you in any way, nothing in this article has anything to do with you.

Props on all your things btw. looks like you have checked off all the boxes society tells you must have to be happy.

Hows your heart? hows Your mental health? do you feel free? do you feel loved?

 @pinkbicycle: @pinkbicycle: awww that so cute. your simple little brain came up with a violent sentence to throw in my direction while reducing my stament on the collective pink bike presence the oh so wittily screen named Miles Hardy ( I am sure his daughters and wife would be very proud of him if they read through his pink bike feed) down to compliments = Incel. I would say that its you who can't really take in the bigger picture because their head is else where.

every single one of you bros that has commented on this thread are solid reminders that no matter what steps pink bike takes to try and make this site and sport more inclusive for women, the real problem is y'all. you're all terrible to each other, your egos and attitudes out on trails don't do anything to help bring women into the sport. None of us are out on trails because we want your attention or affirmations, we just want to rip and enjoy the outdoors without your bullshit.
Speaking of bullshit, Its sad that most of my pro lady friends have to plaster on a smile and always walk a line around all of you fan boys when all they really want is for you to stfu and let them ride instead of engaging with you because its really you Bros that need the affirmations, You need the attention. I know a plethora of Pro men out there with shitty attitudes and probably don't have a future as a model but their riding pays the bills. so do us all a favor, leave us the f*ck alone when were are out riding, none of us are doing ANYTHING, for you
  • 2 1
 @POWsLAYER: yep, angry feminist.

I in no way have tried to upset you have I. Myself, along with plenty of others have expressed the feeling that a lady is good looking. Not a crime.

You’re upset because nobody has told you that you are for a while?

And no, nothing to do with society, if you knew me, which you obviously don’t, I’m super stoked on life. I’ve died three times before and am mega happy with being on the planet. (Just having a cuddle with my two year old daughter.)

The main issues with the internet is; you can’t even say anything nice, or that you like anything because somewhere on the earth there WILL be someone that has an opposing view.

Just never though that would be possible when paying a compliment. Regardless of whether you think she doesn’t need it, nor want it, stop being offended on her behalf. She could easily tell me to shut the f*ck up herself, then I’d listen. Seeing as this is purely your opinion on how someone else might feel, I suggest on behalf of all normal people, that you take the lead and shut the f*ck up, until someone asks for your opinion.
  • 1 2
 @cunning-linguist: you think objectifying women is complimenting them.

no one asked you for your opinion either yet her you are spouting off there guy.

regular pro at this whole double standard thing aintcha.
  • 2 0
 @POWsLAYER: alright. I’ll give you that! Lol

But no one can deny she is a good looking female. And she would likely beat me down a track too, which is double rad!

Hey, let both agree to just enjoy bikes :-) as they rule supreme :-)

Ride on!!!!!! \m/
  • 1 2
 @cunning-linguist: as a good looking female that would beat you down the track, im not letting go of your name calling, you telling me to STFU, or you telling me to shove assumptions up my "dry rotten vagina". Your lack of class Miles Hardy of Brighton won't be forgotten. I hope you double flat on every ride until learn how to be a non toxic and fragile man.
  • 2 1
 @POWsLAYER: but it’s okah for you to tell me and the other dude to do that then and be the first to start the argument?

We were all happy before you chimed in.

Also, I’ve never lived in Brighton, so..............
  • 2 0
 @POWsLAYER: fragile I’d say is probably incorrect. I’ve died 3 times already, I’ve just learnt to give less f*cks and do what I want to do as you could be dead tomorrow.

Toxic, probably right, especially the morning after a decent curry.
  • 1 2
 @cunning-linguist: oh you speak for everyone now, my bad. You know I said nothing of the sort, certainly didn't "start an argument" definitely didn't tell anyone to STFU or do anything vulgar. Classic gaslighting bro. Maybe Update your facebook profile if you didn't live there.
  • 1 2
 @cunning-linguist: go ahead and keep trying to get that last word in there, boi.
  • 2 2
 @cunning-linguist: fragility isn't exclusive to physical nature, more like the state of your masculinity, which is Cleary both toxic, and fragile. good luck with that.
  • 2 1
 @POWsLAYER: so, I’m the nutter, although you’ve searched me out all over the internet?

I think you’ve just highlighted who really is the insecure and odd one.

Plus, if you do read the thread again, you most certainly did begin the mud slinging, mainly to the other guy. Plus you even coined the phrase stfu. Maybe if you’d have scripted your initial response in a less aggrieved manner, we wouldn’t be here.

Look, Emily Batty is good looking. That is an undeniable fact.
  • 2 1
 @POWsLAYER: I imagine you don’t get the funny side of a band like Steel Panther either?
  • 4 1
 @cunning-linguist: whoa hold up, did she just search you on Facebook?
@POWsLAYER you may have at some stage had an OK point to make, but the deranged way in which you did it is kind of detracting from that.
