Mavic, known mostly for their wheels, are expanding their range of goods, particularly in the clothing and helmet world.
Mavic already has a big range of clothes so let’s break it down for convenience.
The Stratos range is Mavic’s most high-tech apparel line, featuring every bell and whistle they could come up with. The Notch range is designed more towards the all-mountain and trail segment; some of the technologies from the Stratos range trickle down into the Notch products, but the principle properties are towards fit and performance. The Redrock range is the versatile and most affordable of the Mavic apparel lines.
We were brought to Peillon, France to spend two days racing Enduro for a scaled down Trans-Provence and to test out the Notch shorts, jersey and helmet, as well as the refined Alpine XL shoe.
