RocDay Lands in Australia

Comments Comments

Not heard of RocDay before? Well that's fair enough!

There’s no doubt the MTB world is heavily influenced by the US market; whether it’s bikes or clothing we often seem to follow US trends. While there’s no doubt that North America does a great job on the marketing front, Europe remains the epicentre of cycling culture and mountain biking is huge there. You’ll find all manner of seemingly obscure brands that do very well for themselves without venturing beyond the EU. Well aware of this, the crew at MTB Sport have set out to make some of these lesser-known European brands available Down Under.

Priory number one was to introduce RocDay clothing to Aussie mountain bikers. RocDay is owned and designed by a group of Polish riders who wanted to create gear that looked good and performed well both on the bike and in the pub for that post ride beer. MTB Sport currently have a range of jerseys, both long and short sleeve, as well as shorts and gloves.

We’ve been riding their ‘Original’ jersey and ‘Roc Lite’ shorts for a few months now and will have a full review in our next magazine. They’re certainly well made and pack in some nice features—like a sunnies cleaning cloth integrated into the jersey and super deep pockets on the shorts so you’ll never lose the contents. The style and fit is certainly relaxed and casual; I’ve been happy wearing the shorts all the time and not just for riding.

All the gear is competitively priced too, with the jerseys selling for around $64-70, the gloves are $50-65 and the shorts start from $125. Shipping is free and you can check them out on the MTB Sport site: https://mtbsport.com.au

One of the joys of Strava is it’s simplicity - it’s a cinch to start then finish a ride with just a couple of taps of a screen. But if you look a little deeper there are far more features than those you see on the face of your phone. Here we take a look at ten ways you can get more out of Strava.
