Roomy, Comfortable, and Functional MTB Gear
In mid-April, Stolen Goat announced several new MTB pieces to their line of cycling gear. Both are available in men’s and women’s cuts and extended sizes. RBR has reviewed Stolen Goat gear in the past, and they never disappoint.
You’ll Be Styling on the Trails in a Voltage MTB Jersey
The company sent me the short-sleeve version to test, but the Voltage jersey comes in short or long-sleeve options, with the LS only being $7 more. The cut is typical MTB, casual and loose, with two-way stretch fabric for unrestricted movement. The bold lightning bolt design is fun, reflects the relaxed MTB vibe, and is gender neutral.
The fabric is lightweight, breathable, and fast-drying, which is excellent in the warm summer weather. In addition, it provides SPF 30 UV protection. Stolen Goat is one of the few companies recognizing cyclists come in all shapes and sizes and offers this jersey in extended sizes from XS-3XL.
MTB Shorts with Longer Inseam and Wide Leg Openings
These Stolen Goat shorts have a 39.5cm inseam and a wider leg opening providing plenty of coverage with room for knee pads. The four-way stretch fabric lets you move around without restriction. The adjustable hook and loop waistband allows you to customize the fit and is a little higher in the back for added coverage. There are two zippered side pockets that fit my iPhone, however, I would have liked at least one rear pocket. I’m always looking for storage since MTB jerseys don’t normally have rear pockets.
The front closure on my sample pair had a hook and loop, while the website says two snaps. Not sure which is the production version.
The polyester blend fabric is SPF 50+, water-repellent, fast-drying, and breathable. Note that these shorts do not come with a chamois, giving you a choice to wear with a liner or bib shorts. I tried both with equally positive results.
Available in both men’s and women’s-specific cuts, sizes XS-2XL (men’s up to 3XL), and only in one color—black. I found these shorts extremely comfortable both on and off the bike. For me, the sign of a good pair of shorts is you never think about them while wearing them: no binding, no adjusting, just comfort.
The quality of Stolen Goat’s road gear translates to their new MTB jersey and shorts. Great fit, comfort, and of course, style. Both are affordable, come in extended sizes, and will provide you with miles of riding in style.
