Zara, the Spanish clothing giant best known for its high-street fashion shops, has expanded its offerings to men’s mountain bike clothing and accessories. Collaborating with Spiuk, a cycling brand, the fashion retailer now stocks everything you might need for hitting the trails, from shoes to jerseys, pants and helmets. And yes, they do look quite fashionable, too…
This is not Zara’s first cycling collection, as earlier this year it brought out some more road-cycling-orientated clothes and accessories as part of its Athleticz outdoor range.
But unlike the previous few-piece stong cycling collection, the off-road range is pretty extensive, from technical and waterproof kit to casual clothing - although everything is only available in men’s fit. There is plenty of pockets and cycling-specific cuts visible, and the prices seem to be in an affordable range. Let’s have a look at a few of the products more closely.
Zara MTB Athleticz Technical Jersey
2022 Zara mtb clothing technical jersey, by Zara
The Zara MTB Technical Jersey Cycling features a lightweight, adaptable technical fabric, high collar and pockets at the back. The sizes range from S to XL and this jersey comes in two colours, which match the technical t-shirt and trousers in the range. The Technical Jersey sets you off £60.
Zara MTB Athleticz Belt Bag
2022 Zara mtb clothing bum bag, by Zara
Bum bags have been a street fashion item for a while now, so the Zara Belt bag is perhaps no surprise in this range. This one is really a cycling product, though, and it has two features in one. It can be used as a bar or a traditional hip bag. It has two adjustable side pockets, and an adjustable waist strap and should be spray-proof. The bag retails for £50.
Spiuk MTB Athleticz helmet
2022 Zara mtb clothing helmet, by Zara
The Spiuk collaboration is most visible in the Athleticz helmet and the Spiuk® trainers (which are essentially mtb shoes despite the renaming them trainers). This helmet is Spiuk’s Eleo and has a different design for this collection. It’s available in two adjustable sizes only, and has a removable peak. The price for the helmet is £109.
Zara Polartec Contrast fleece jacket
2022 Zara mtb clothing fleece jacket, by Zara
This fleece jacket is part of the more casual pieces in the range, complementing the sweatpants and shirt. The jacket has a high collar and a multifunctional front pocket in a contrast fabric, and elasticated trims. The jacket retails for £80.
