Christmas Gift Guide
The perfect bike tees for him
We have for a long time, had a connection with the bicycle - from downhill mountain daredevils to tricks on the road bike. Fans of the Animal brand from back in the day, right up to the minute with our recently featured collection from Madison, will be pleased to see we’re paying homage to all things cycling with our brand new collection of tees.
Jump back to the mid ‘90s, when Steve Kitchin set up the sponsorship of Animal’s first local downhill MTB team, with the likes of Steve Geall, Robin Kitchin and Tim Ponting. It wasn’t long before the team went on to dominate the UK circuit, heading downhill at crazy speeds. 2012 saw the launch of the Road Bike Party, and Martyn Ashton’s mission to perform a series of incredible acrobatic tricks on an unmodified carbon road bike.
Whether the bike guy in your life is a fan of those mountain trails, or a road cyclist through and through, the gifting season is well and truly upon us. If you’re in need of some inspiration for stocking fillers, or want to add one or two cycling-themed pieces to his collection, then here’s the low-down on our new range of bike tees...
From the track to the open road, the Shield T-shirt takes inspiration from the emblems found on vintage velos, and celebrates the sport of road cycling with the retro hues and classic shapes you’d tend to find on the bike’s head tube.
The look and feel shifts a gear as Grey Marl creates a base for the hand-drawn bike wheel and spanner of the Spanna T-shirt.
The collection takes a detailed turn in the Pick Up T-shirt, conjuring up images of adventures on the horizon and new routes to explore on the bike.
For those seeking mountain vistas as pictured in the Cog T-shirt, find Grey Marl or Black colourways as a backdrop for ‘Animal’ typography and a clean-lined design.
Things get technical in the intricate line drawing effect of the Tech T-shirt in Dark Navy Marl or White; a great piece to layer up under zip-up hoodies this winter.
Uphill climbs or downhill paths; for those in search of un-ridden routes, what better way to give the gift of the bike than with gear to inspire new adventures to come.
