QLD Ambassador Rory Whitelaw

MTB Sport is proud to have Rory Whitelaw join the team as a brand ambassador. Rory is a keen mountain biker with a background racing downhill mountain bikes back in the late 90s, then motocross, but he’s now crossed back and is once again racing mountain bikes. Rory competes in the SEQ Gravity Enduro and SEQ Downhill series. We first met Rory at the Enduro World Series in Derby where he was racing in the Master’s division.

On most weekends, you will find Rory riding the trails around Southeast Queensland, or loading your bike onto the shuttle trailer when you are doing runs with Brisbane Mountain Bike Shuttles @brisbanemtbshuttles. Being involved in riding bikes over such a long time, it is no surprise that Rory values quality gear and we’re pumped to have him using Rocday, Amplifi and Hirzl mountain bike apparel.

If you don’t already you can follow Rory on Instagram @rory_whitelaw. He is also supported by @intensecyclesoz, @international_protein @venture_cycles, give these companies a follow and show your support.

SPRUNG GET AMPLIFI & ROCDAY

MTB Sport is proud to announce Sprung mountain bike as the first Australian mountain bike shop to stock our range of mountain bike apparel, protection, and packs from Rocday and Amplifi.

Sprung is well known in Tasmania for their selection of premium Rocky Mountain and Santa Cruz mountain bikes. We’re more than happy to have our products now available at Sprung.

Enduro World Series

In early April the Enduro World Series hit Australia with the best mountain bike riders in the world descending on Derby in Tasmania. MTB Sport was lucky enough to attend this iconic event to showcase our range of mountain bike apparel from Rocday, Amplifi and Hirzl.

The response to our range of European mountain bike gear was amazing and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came by to check out the range. We’d also like to thank Event Management Solutions for organising and running the event so well, we really hope you can bring EWS back to Australia in the future.

Of course, we also need to congratulate all the riders for putting on an amazing riding display over the weekend, especially in horrifically wet conditions on race day. We’re sure the riders also appreciated the more than enthusiastic spectator support.

See you at the next Enduro World Series Australia!!!!

Brand Ambassador Brad Segda

MTB Sport is proud to have Brad Segda join the team as a brand ambassador. Brad is a passionate mountain biker and trail builder. Working for World Trail Brad has been heavily involved in building the Blue Derby trail network including sections built especially for the Enduro World Series.

It’s no surprise that when he’s not building Brad is riding his bike. Being such an accomplished rider Brad knows quality gear and we’re stoked to have him using Rocday, Amplifi and Hirzl mountain bike apparel.

If you don’t already follow Brad on Instagram check him out @segda_b. This year he will be working on one of the most highly anticipated trail networks soon to begin development in Australia.

WE ARE AMPLIFI

MTB Sport is proud to announce that we now stock premium mountain bike packs and travel bags from German brand AMPLIFI.

It’s now six months since we met with the team behind AMPLIFI at Eurobike in Germany. We knew before we arrived in Germany that AMPLIFI produced rad looking, top quality products, you only had to read the reviews to know this. But when we arrived and had the gear in our hands we were so impressed and knew we needed to stock the AMPLIFI range of packs and protection.

It wasn’t just the sick range of functional, durable and great looking gear that impressed us. The designers, engineers and testers have put their heart and soul into making sure every product is the best it can possibly be, re-disigning, re-building and re-testing until perfection is achieved.

The companie mind set and philosophy is what makes AMPLIFI a great brand.

AMPLIFI this: Whether you’re on your bike giving it hell on the sickest trails, ripping crazy lines on your board, or rocking the world on your travels – AMPLIFI is stoked for any adventure.

AMPLIFI was born from the idea of doing something of our own and developing the best protectors on the market while we were doing it. We made our passion for biking, snowboarding and the outdoors our calling. It meant we could make products for other riders that give them the ultimate in comfort, protection and user-friendliness. Any less doesn’t cut it when you’re tumbling down a damn mountain.

We spend a lot of time at the drawing board so that you can shred with your friends outside, so that you can keep pushing each other and developing new skills. We test our products ourselves, of course – our team riders hit the pistes and trails every day and give us feedback. Together, we make improvements, tear everything up and start over again, until we’re convinced that we’ve created THE ultimate product. Then we crack open a beer and celebrate with you. It’s insane how hard you can shred when you know how well you’re protected.

You’ve gotta to do what you can’t do without. That’s why we do what we can do. We are AMPLIFI.

2017 Rocday Mountain Bike Gloves

The warehouse has been busy this weekend unpacking a shipment of sweet new mountain bike gloves from Rocday. We couldn’t be happier with the range which includes three models, Flow, Element and Evo.

The quality of these MTB gloves is outstanding and a testament to the hard work put in by Rocday sourcing the highest quality fabrics and testing prototypes.

Whether you prefer a light weight glove for a direct feel on the bars or something with a little more padding and protection we have your hands covered. There’s also a great range of colours to suit everyone’s taste.

Hirzl Grippp Gloves Now Available

If you like mountain bike gloves then you’re sure to like the new Hirzl Grippp gloves now available from MTB Sport. These Swiss MTB gloves feature a Kangaroo leather palm which provides maximum grip in dry, humid and wet conditions.

The Kangaroo leather is sweat resistant and the gloves have a breathable air tech mesh which provides a comfortable hand climate.

The light version of these gloves has no palm padding for those mountain bike riders who prefer a gloveless feeling but still want maximum grip.

So for the ultimate glove experience hit up www.mtbsport.com.au/product-category/gloves/ to get your hands in a pair of Grippp gloves.

ANDREW BUTLER JOINS MTB SPORT

MTB Sport is stoked to announce that we’re sponsoring DH racer Andrew Butler. Andy will be wearing Rocday MTB apparel for his 2017 race season. We first met Andy out on the trails and were straight away impressed with his skills on a bike.

Andy will be racing in the Tasmanian DH series as well as events such as the Victorian DH series at Mt Buller and the Mountain Bike Australia National series at Thredbo and Toowoomba.

We’re proud to be sponsoring a talented young mountain bike rider and an all round top bloke.

ROCDAY MTB Gear Has Arrived

It’s official, ROCDAY mountain bike apparel is in Australia and available exclusively at mtbsport.com.au. The range of Rocday MTB gear includes shorts and jerseys available for free shipping Australia wide. The 2017 range of Rocday MTB gloves are coming this summer and they’re sick so it’s worth the wait.

The ROC Lite shorts have 4-way stretch fabric and are lite and comfy, perfect for all mountain and trail riding this summer. The ROC shorts are designed for enduro and all mountain riding, similar features to the ROC Lite but kicked up a gear with features such as waterproof pocket zippers and a more durable fabric.

We have a great range of Rocday MTB short and long sleeve jerseys suitable for any form of mountain bike riding, trail, all mountain, enduro, downhill or free ride. The jerseys are made out of a lite fabric with a compact and uniquely elastic structure, which is breathable, and moisture wicking at the same time. These jerseys look great, are very lite and comfortable, designed to fit perfectly when you’re in your riding position.

We’re very excited to be able to work with Rocday and make their brand of MTB apparel available to Australian mountain bike riders. Rocday is an exciting and fresh brand from Poland with an great range and more to come in the future.
