Clothing Partner - 7MEsh
It is a great pleasure to partner with high performance cycling apparel brand 7mesh clothing. Based in Squamish, British Columbia, their complex, innovative, thorough and iterative approach to research and development ensure that the products are light, durable, functional and beautiful. In short, they won't let you down. With a group of cycling enthusiasts at its core, each coming from a career in technical clothing development, the brand neatly aligns with the ethos of Moor Retreats. The unique topography, proximity to the pacific ocean and latitude create changeable conditions which demand a lot from clothing, and the kit has been designed to protect the rider from whatever the weather might be in the mood for.
And there are many parallels with Dartmoor and Exmoor...
The Moors can be ‘Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing’. Unpredictable at times. Cantankerous almost. Their beauty is balanced by hills which rollercoaster into one another and persistent changes in gradient which can make it difficult to find a smooth rhythm. Clothing needs to perform perfectly in sync with your movements to deal with many shifts in body angle, to deal with the necessity of constantly jumping in and out of the saddle and to deal with the conditions. The Moors are beautiful, but exposed, and take most of our prevailing weather on the chin. It can be gloriously warm and it can be fiercely wild, making clothing comfort and performance absolute prerequisite ingredients for an enjoyable day in the saddle.
As a guest of Moor Retreats you will find a selection of the latest clothing from 7mesh waiting for you in your 'Welcome Pack', ready for tackling the moorland roads.
