Baggy shorts have definitely become a part of the mountain biker's uniform. Roost is all about shredding a gnarly Alpine track, sending it on a 30ft double at the local woods or competing in a cyclocross event stylishly.

Flare's Roost Downhill MTB shorts are made from 500D Cordura which is awesome stuff. It's stylishly durable, has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and is resistant to tears, scruffs and abrasions - legs will be protected from flicked up loam/ spiky twigs and there for you when things don't go to plan (touch wood)!

Built in 4-way stretch panels will give you optimum movement whilst on the bike, giving you all day comfort to session those turns you've been trying. Roost's adjustable waistband proves very handy to slacken or tighten to the preferred fit, whilst the crossover fly adds a flattering note.

These Roost MTB shorts ooze quality, with thoughtful and useful touches throughout, zipped pockets to keep your phone and keys safe while on the uplift and venting in both legs allow for knee and shin protection, to keep you safe and suitably protected on the trails.

Did we also mention Flare Clothing Co design and make all of their products in the UK, so they can support local manufacturers and keep a close eye on quality. Lovely!

Note: these shorts do NOT include a padded liner short, allowing you to pick your favourite chamois to ride in.

Who's Behind It?

In the summer of 2014 we plunged into the world of mountain bike kit, teaming up with Brit brand Flare Clothing Co.

High quality women's mountain biking clothing is thin on the ground, so we were excited when we came across newly-launched Flare Clothing. Nottingham-based founder and creator Hannah Myers created a broad range of women's MTB kit that's as dazzling and creative as anything out there. And there's no stinting on quality either.

Proudly designed - and mostly made - in the UK we're smitten with the Flare collection. It's colourful, graphic, technical and durable. From cross-country to free ride and downhill, what ever your style, we're certain you'll stand out in Head Designer Hannah's kit.

Flare Clothing fills a much-needed gap in the market - in Hannah's own words, 'I wanted to ride my bike and look like a girl while I was'. And from the quality of the riders that Flare sponsor, these girls mean business. Now you can be a proudly rad/gnarly/stoked (delete as appropriate) female mountain biker, without having to resort to guys' kit.
