If you are new to mountain biking, you might not be thrilled with the idea of wearing brightly colored and tight clothing. There are reasons for this kind of attire though. The bright and sometimes flamboyant colors make riders easier to see from a distance, which is more of a safety feature than an artistic statement. Also, the tightness protects your health, as loose clothing can get caught up in bike parts or snagged on tree limbs. It also allows for freedom of movement and helps wick moisture off of your skin. Having the right apparel and packs will make your rides more enjoyable. Jerseys and riding shorts can definitely make you more comfortable by wicking away moisture to keep you cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. High visibility apparel can also make your ride safer. Packs can help you carry needed items like street shoes, an extra shirt…or lunch! FHB has a wide selection for the most advanced cyclist to the beginner.
