Rocky Mountain announces new line of in-house designed technical apparel

0
PRESS RELEASE: Rockies

We are delighted to announce our new range of technical clothing. The Rocky Mountain Technical Collection offers essential trail apparel that’s as versatile, thoughtful, and high-performing as our bikes. We use similar design principles to those used to create our bikes to engineer and deliver every part. Then we put it through the wringer, here in our North Shore backyard and around the world. The result is the only technical apparel collection on the planet that matches the passion and performance we infuse into every one of our bikes.

Air Supply 90 Jersey


Our lightest jersey yet for sweltering trail days. Superlight ventilated polyester fabrics are like alternating current for your torso. Expect this featherweight to wick away moisture and maximize airflow during peak summer sessions. The ride-specific fit sits perfectly when you’re in the saddle, but is classic enough to look natural when hydrating on busy terraces. And because we designed the Air Supply to withstand the park or the backcountry, we added a RECCO® reflector for added safety and peace of mind. To keep this lightweight essential a go-to year after year, we’ve reinforced the seams and constructed high wear zones to reduce pilling and increase durability summer after summer.

• Airy, super lightweight Italian recycled polyester fabrics maximize airflow and moisture movement
• Relaxed yet trail-specific, as comfortable as it is low-profile
• Antimicrobial fabric treatment keeps things from getting stinky and wet
• Built-in RECCO® reflector helps search and rescue teams find you faster in the worst case – an industry first
• Built-in emergency ID tag lists your critical information and doubles as a goggle wiper

Price: CA$85 / US$75

Nelson 70 Jersey


Much better than your old Iron Maiden t-shirt. Of course, the graphics are subtle. But this short-sleeved jersey is packed with game-changing details. Soft, breathable polyester fabrics wick away moisture and keep cool air circulating. The ride-specific fit feels natural when you’re in the saddle and offers complete freedom of movement without snagging or bunching. Reinforced seams and roll-up fabrics in specific areas ensure this t-shirt holds up trail after trail, year after year. Looking for hidden backcountry gems? No worries – we’ve added a RECCO® reflector to protect you if things get shady.

• Airy, super lightweight Italian recycled polyester fabrics maximize airflow and moisture movement
• Relaxed yet trail-specific, as comfortable as it is low-profile
• Antimicrobial fabric treatment keeps things from getting stinky and wet
• Built-in RECCO® reflector helps search and rescue teams find you faster in the worst case – an industry first
• Built-in emergency ID tag lists your critical information and doubles as a goggle wiper

Price: CA$75 / US$65

Slab City 70 Jersey


Our most beautiful shirt cut for the trail. Designed to keep things a bit laid-back while withstanding the rigors and rumble of the trail, we took the extra time to get this one right. The ride-specific fit doesn’t bunch up when you’re in the saddle, but doesn’t feel awkward during post-ride shuffles. We even slipped in a RECCO® reflector for added safety and peace of mind on those all-day epics that go further than expected.

• Airy, super lightweight Italian recycled polyester fabrics maximize airflow and moisture movement
• 3/4 sleeves for the women’s cut and long sleeves for the men’s cut
• Antimicrobial fabric treatment keeps things from getting stinky and wet
• Built-in RECCO® reflector helps search and rescue teams find you faster in the worst case – an industry first
• Built-in emergency ID tag lists your critical information and doubles as a goggle wiper

Price: CA$90 / US$80

Legend 90 Shorts


For our first all-mountain short, we set out to build the short we’ve wanted to ride for decades. A short light enough to stay cool during ultra-hot BC indoor conditions, but not get soaked while driving our North Shore backyard. Shorts we’d love to wear on lunchtime walks, or pair with a bib liner for all-day epics. And shorts that finally incorporated a RECCO® reflector for peace of mind when ripping trails deep in the backcountry. After experimenting with different fabrics, fits and features, the result is the Legend 90. Ultra-versatile, liberating shorts that go anywhere and never get between you and the track.

• Trail specific fit and length just below the knees
• Premium fabrics improve durability in high-wear areas, while keeping things plush and airy in key areas
• 4-way stretch woven fabric and articulated knees provide complete freedom of movement
• Articulated knee leaves room for knee pads
• Micro-mesh lumbar storage area stores essentials and prevents sweat buildup
• Angled pockets and zippered phone pocket increase storage space
• Passage area on the right thigh for easy access to the pockets of the liner (matches perfectly with the Darkside liner)
• DWR finish keeps things dry in “non-dry” conditions
• Antimicrobial fabric treatment keeps things from getting stinky and wet
• Built-in RECCO® reflector helps search and rescue teams find you faster in the worst case

Price: CA$190 / US$155

Darkside bib liner


The only coating we trust for trail triple crowns and door-to-door summer epics. MTB-specific cushion designed to maximize comfort in all scenarios – climbing, descending, sending, etc. The airy fabric design gives the impression of “nothing at all!” when worn, while the silky soft shoulder straps ensure comfortable security all day long. We’ve designed this liner to pair perfectly with our Legend 90 Shorts, but expect it to be a game-changer all day, no matter what you’re running it with.

• Micromesh fabrics with recycled lycra improve mobility and moisture wicking
• MTB specific pad, made with recycled materials, provides big cushion and eliminates chafing
• Silicone gripper and straps provide a totally secure fit
• Seamless strap design lays flat without any annoying itchy areas
• Storage pockets on the thighs; the right side is accessible via the master key pocket of the Legend 90 shorts

Price: CA$150 / US$120
