Introducing Aussie Grit apparel

Clothing that blends functionality and style to keep you riding whatever the weather

18 Dec 2018

This feature was produced in association with Aussie Grit Apparel and first appeared in issue 52 of Cyclist magazine

Aussie Grit offers truly functional, comfortable and stylish performance apparel so you can enjoy the great outdoors knowing that your kit won’t let you down.

The brand was founded by former F1 driver Mark Webber who learned through motor racing that tight margins can be the difference between success and failure.

Knowing you have to trust every aspect of your gear to give you the headspace to perform at your best and enjoy the moment.

Aussie Grit Apparel’s flint range is made with premium materials and a careful design.

Flint Thermal Gilet

What makes this gilet really special is the textured brush lining and membrane used through the front and shoulders for warmth and wind blocking.

These front panels are water repellent to 5,000mm with a breathability rating of 5,000gm. Airflow fabric panels in the back allow heat evacuation and reduce sweat build-up, helping to regulate body temperature.

The Thermal Gilet features two large rear pockets and an auto-locking zip on the right-hand pocket, so you’ll have plenty of storage.

Available in sizes S-XXL, priced £99.

Flint Bike Shorts

Aussie Grit’s cornerstone product has an anchor waistband system that connects the outer and inner layers making a complete 2-in-1 short.

The garment is lightweight and stylish – tailored enough for casual use but technical enough for competition.

It includes a world-class chamois and with Italian Lycra against the skin, the shorts are comfortable and supportive.

The ergonomic fit holds the chamois in situ to reduce chafing and catching, and is designed to stay in place over a long ride.

The outer fabric is light but durable, designed to provide protection – both of the chamois inner and from the elements – and reduce snagging.

It features an adjustable, locking elastic waistband drawcord, a secure phone-sized pocket with reversed auto-locking zip, positioned so that pedalling efficiency isn’t impacted, plus reflective highlights.

Available in sizes S-XXL, priced £149.

Flint Bike Shell Jacket

This stunner features a hydrophobic membrane with mesh cover to deliver waterproof fabric rated at 20,000mm and breathability of 5,000gm, while still being light, strong and ergonomically designed for movement.

The Bike Shell features sealed seams, a vertical chest pocket with laser cut earphone eyelet, and an off-centre auto-locking zip, making layering with our gilets and jerseys easy and comfortable.

Available in orange, black and charcoal, and in sizes S-XXL, priced £199.

Flint Merino-Blend Long-Sleeved Top 

Good-looking and versatile, the mid-weight Long Sleeve Top consists of a single knit construction of a performance Merino blend which insulates, whilst wicking away moisture to regulate body temperature.

The ultra soft-to-the-touch material oozes comfort while the ergonomic design allows freedom of movement.

It has reversed auto-locking zips with zip garage and soft-touch thread on the seams to prevent chafing.

This works as well as a casual garment as it does a technical performance piece.

Available in sizes S-XXL, priced £67.
