Mountain bike clothing makes a mountain bike ride even more fun. Most mountain bike shorts and jerseys are sturdier than road bike clothing. No need to worry about your mountain bike clothing tearing because it got caught on something. In addition, many mountain bike shorts have a pocket with a zipper, allowing you to securely store your wallet or phone. Men's mtb clothing and women's mtb clothing is often looser than road bike clothing. When you're racing through the forest, a comfortable fit takes priority over aerodynamics.
