From online to in print, Eskapee joined teams with Misspent Summers to create this beautiful, memorable, landmark print product. A beautiful coffee table book about mountain biking.

Neck Chief – £20

Neck Chief, artwork taken from our latest Ink Shack. You’ll be bursting into bars and turning over tables while looking mildly menacing.

Print is the core of our business. It is our greatest passion.

Find out why we believe in print on our books page.

We make mountain bike clothing because:

The boring business bit: Expanding our product line is a way of supplementing the work we do in recording the history of mountain biking in our books

The blushing grateful bit: It allows our supporters to help spread our message — knowing people like you wear our clothing is the ultimate compliment, thank you.

The main reason: Because making stuff is quite a lot of fun and it’s our hobby as well as our work and we have some fantastic designers and thinkers in our team.

We would never make a second-rate product: all our merchandise is of high quality and it will make you look dazzlingly great.

Discover our threads.

There is nothing quite like a good cup of tea and a top-notch biscuit — brewed properly and served deliciously. Before piling into a rutty, muddy, chaotic mountain bike track. But don’t be fooled, this is a film that lets the riding take centre stage.

We’ve teamed up with Tommy C to bring you this wild, raw action filmed in a classic British handheld, gritty manner. Some of mountain biking’s biggest names and most underrated shredders will tear corners to pieces, boost jumps, slash through muck and mud and let it all out for the camera.
