Female Cycling Brands
If ‘pink it and shrink it’ just isn’t your thing, you’ll be glad to hear that female cycling brands are growing by the day. We think all women should take up cycling and they should definitely have some good kit. Whether you like the typical flowery designs or want to go for something much more subtle, here are 5 of the best online sites to update your wardrobe for summer.
Yes you can be a hill killer no matter how slow and steady you are! As well as having some pretty bold designs, they also sell a shed load of vegan kit, yay! High quality materials will wick any moisture away from your body, and let you look good at the same time.

My go to kit, DHB has seriously upped its style stakes in the past few years. Whether you don’t want to invest a small loan in your wardrobe or just would rather have as many pieces of kit as possible, this is where DHB comes in. Although cheap, their kit is fashionable, comfortable and extremely high quality. Almost all my kit has been from here, and I adore it.

No Strava QOM needed to wear this kit, which is lucky enough! One of the biggest female cycling brands, it’s designed by women and for women. This kit is beautiful. Selling accessories, base layers, shorts and jerseys, look and feel your best in this Italian designed brand that will give you the extra confidence and be a true Queen of the Mountain. Imagine colourful geometric designs meets practicality.
Not just for the boys, the Ale kit is on my shopping list. After buying a pair of fluro pink socks, I’m desperate for a colourful kit to match. From camo kit to bold jerseys which will fast become your staple cycling gear, this is a prime example of how cycling companies shouldn’t just cater to the male market. Simple, bold designs that always seem to work.
