Muxu’s Ride collection of clothing is a small range that caters to the urban cyclist. Designed to bridge the gap between cycle wear and casual wear, the brand create pieces that look as good off the bike as on. Muxu’s Ride collection is designed in Barcelona and takes inspiration from the city’s vibrant streetwear culture for a cool, laid back range that banishes any thoughts of lycra and reflective jackets in neon yellow.
The range is essentially a capsule collection for the urban cyclist – it provides a small but sufficient selection of pieces that can be worn in almost any combination. The styling is minimal, meaning no one piece dominates the collection, which ensures it is also extremely easy to wear.
Some of the highlights include a pair of jeans in Japanese denim that are tailored specifically for cycling: featuring a comfortable regular fit with a seamless crotch and a waistband that is cut higher at the back to preserve dignity on the road. The Muxu cycling jeans also include a Muxu ‘X’ in reflective tape on the inside of the right leg that can be revealed by cuffing the jean – something many cyclists choose to do in order to prevent fabric becoming trapped in their bike chain.
For the warmer weather, a pair of three quarter length chino shorts are also available. Although the mere mention of three quarter lengths is usually enough to send most fashion forward men running for the hills, the skinny cut and coherence with the overall aesthetic of the collection keeps these from committing any crimes against style.
In addition, a range of jerseys, shirts and polos are available. Made from odour-resistant, quick drying cotton, they are suitable for any ride – from a short jaunt across town to a strenuous days pedalling. When the weather turns, a classic zip-up jumper in merino wool is on hand to layer up against the cold, and while it may prove inadequate in the depths of winter, a track jacket is soon to be released for when extra protection is needed.
Alongside the main collection, several accessories help complete the look. A pair of functional socks keep your feet cool and comfortable, whilst a cycling cap helps safeguard you from the sun.
Muxu’s Ride collection does exactly what it sets out to do – provide a range of practical yet stylish clothing for the urban cyclist. With its understated, relaxed style it is ideal for anyone who takes their cycling seriously but thinks that dayglo and tights should be left to the ravers.
