Press Release: Nukeproof

Lighter evenings, dry(er) trails and rides finishing with a well-earned “refreshment of choice” the northern hemisphere spring-summer is starting to kick off nicely. To celebrate it's time to launch the latest collection of Nukeproof Ridewear.

For 2022 our Lead clothing designer Lynsey and her team have been busy designing and developing a World-Class range of clothing. This season’s main aim has been to diversify the availability of our MTB apparel to meet the growing demand from our customers, athletes (but, mainly our employees). Products such as the award-winning Blackline Trail Pants, Blackline jersey and shorts are now available in Women’s and Youth sizes and cuts.


The Blackline collection is Nukeproof’s premium apparel range, designed for the trail. Developed to meet the demands of World Class athletes and as used by Nukeproof-Sram Factory Racing. Blackline jerseys use premium Italian performance fabrics.


The long and short sleeve jerseys are all constructed with Lightweight (115gsm- Jersey), 4-way stretch, highly breathable fabrics (but still super durable) with the aim to be the ultimate trail gear. Across the range we have continued our commitment to use Bluesign® Approved, Eco-Tech fabrics, along with the reduction in plastic in our packaging and labelling. 


Nukeproof Blackline range includes Short and Long Sleeve jerseys, shorts, trail pants, socks and gloves offerings for Men, Women, and Kids.


All Blackline Shorts and Trailpants are built lightweight with 4-way stretch fabrics and durable. The 3D 135gsm fabric is designed to offer the maximum surface area to wick and dry fast with laser cut venting on the front. The fabric is soft to touch but super durable and abrasive resistant against snags, offering protection against trail debris.

They are built tough too – flat lock triple stitched inner leg hems provide strength while high-quality double popper buttons and quality YKK zips offer a bombproof feel. Locking the shorts firmly in place you’ll find easy to use inner waist adjuster tabs plus non-slip silicon panels that grip your inner shorts or skin.

Blackline Trailpants and shorts for Men, Women & Youth- Modeled here by Natasha Bradley

Shorts and pants include zipper pockets with a D Loop in the left pocket to attach valuables. Blackline shorts include a lightweight compression liner using a 3D dual-density foam chamois liner. This is designed to offer comfort on longer rides (3-5 hours). All seams are flatlock stitched for ultimate comfort in the saddle.

Blackline also includes a full range of accessories for on and off the bike. This includes Merino socks and baselayers through to moisture-wicking anti-bacterial performance socks. The Blackline Vapour glove is a single layer Clarino leather, super comfortable gloves. Designed to offer you the ultimate bike feel and keep your hands feeling fresh. 


A new addition for 2022 is a Blackline Changing Robe to protect your dignity when changing at the trail head. It’s lined with a super soft fleece with a waterproof and windproof outer shell to keep you warm on the way home if you're prone to catching a chill post-ride.

Protect your dignity changing at the trailhead

Coming very soon to Nukeproof retailers will be a complete collection for youths too (jerseys on sale now, Blackline TrailPants and Short to follow in May). This will include “mini me” versions of the Blackline LS/SS jersey as well as Trail Pants and shorts. These are all made from the same fabrics and to the same standards and construction of the men’s and women’s offerings. So the Blackline youth kit gets super stretchy and durable Trailpants and shorts and performance wicking Jerseys with UV protection. Sizing will be aimed at 8-14 years old.

Like Father Like Son, Bam Hill Modeling the new Blackline Kids kit

Nukeproof also offers a casual offering for pre and post ride, including hoodies, caps, beanies and tees. All Nukeproof Ridewear is available via Nukeproof authorized dealers and on sale now.

 Following on from that chat about whether it's OK to wear your chammy home, I'm getting that changing robe and wearing it, and nothing else, to the pub after all future rides.

 @pakleni: Long ones that could catch the pedals or tight ones that restrict movement are no longer allowed. Most will be aright and the cops wont suddenly change into the fashion police, they will probably only fine people who have been pulled over for something else like speeding.

 I held my tongue with the Chamois topic but I was actually quite startled to see how many people have a problem changing clothes in public, I try to be quick and discreet but I really don’t care if someone catches me changing. If they stare then that’s their problem, people normally look away, sorry to offended anyone one but I see it more an issue with those who take offense as opposed to those who feel the need to change clothes. Indecent exposure is something entirely different.

 @oldfaith: I'm with you on this, but equally I was stood naked from the waist down in Swinley forest car park the other day, doing my post-ride change, when a school bus full of kids pulled in... so.. you know.. pick your moments.

 @oldfaith: I'm a bit surprised to see this from a UK company. I know the US-Americans have a problem with visible human anatomy, but the Brits? Then again, maybe its just for warmth when changing in cold weather, i can totally understand that.

 @oldfaith: It has more to do with what area the trail head is in. Getting naked in clear view of homes (kids etc), or other user groups out having a good time isn't cool. And in fact, most people in general would probably prefer not to see your schlong, if they happen to catch a glimpse by accident.

 @mammal: I think you have let your imagination run a little wild, what I mean by quick and discreet is really that, check your surroundings, even a busy car park is fine if you get between two cars, have a plan of attack so you expose your most offensive body parts for the least amount of time, stay cool (if you try and rush you may make a blunder that attracts attention and has you exposed for longer) and yes I do all of that for people like you. Your welcome.

 @oldfaith: Frankly, I don't give a shit, but tonnes of people in my area sully the reputation of mountain bikers because they just strip down blatantly in front of houses and other trail users. I was responding directly to your "I was actually quite startled to see how many people have a problem changing clothes in public". I'm relatively certain that most people don't have an issue with those being conscious and considerate, the problem is caused by people that aren't. Hence the reason for products like this.

 My takeaway is that Sam Hill's son is called Bam Hill. Is there a daughter named Jam? Is the wife's name Pam? I definitely know how they would name a domestic pig.

 Nice timing for Nukeproof clothing - we never know when Russia/Putin will launch his first nuke and you don’t want to get caught on trail without protection. Possibly order this clothing line for daily use outside trail - you never know when a nuke might go off, better safe than sorry.

 On a subject other than me wearing less than I should in public, I want to shout out the Nukeproof Blackline pants. I've been wearing the Endura ones all winter, and they're great, but pretty warm and heavy duty for sunny days on the trails. The Nukeproof ones are so light and stretchy it feels like you aren't actually wearing trousers - Oh god.. I seem to be obsessed with not having any trousers on... PS Nukeproof, please, for the love of everything, give us tall racing snakes a longer leg option - it's decidedly drafty round the ankles and I look like my mum is refusing to buy me new school trousers again.

 As a fellow lanky human. We’re looking at it (l/XL sizes are 33’ legs and s & m are 31’ but accept not all tall people are L or XL / vice verse

Thanks for the kind words

 @Nukeproofinternational: Great stuff. Anecdotally it seems like there should be enough demand to justify this, there's loads of people at my local spot who are about the same dimensions as me (30-32" waist, 33-34" inseam)

 @Nukeproofinternational: Endura Large pants have a 35” inseam….

Are you making clothes for the average Brit? I guess Colum Tyrel is right, most Brit’s really are Wobble Goblins.

 I love the fit and feel of my Blackline trail pants, which is suprising. I held off on them forever until @ridesmoothbro insisted I try them. Love them.

If they could move the phone pocket to the hip, I'd be even happier. Cell phone sits awkward in it.

 Their apparel is absolutely fantastic for the money. High quality, comfortable. The blackline pants are the best out there. Right @blowmyfuse?

 There are simply too many apparel companies in the world today, and not just in mountain biking. Developed countries discard far too much clothing after it "goes out of style" and push it on other, poorer countries as if we're doing them a favor. www.vox.com/the-goods/22700581/aja-barber-consumed-book-fast-fashion-ghana
