Gobik in style — the coolest new summer cycling clothing from Spanish innovators Gobik

When it comes to countries associated with high fashion, people naturally think of France first. And when it comes to countries associated with high-quality cycling clothing, the first thought is often Italy… but there is one European country that can rival these traditional core countries in both sectors: Spain.

We know that cyclists generally prefer cycling to trudging through the high street, but you might still recognize names like Loewe, Balenciaga, Paco Rabanne, Mango, Massimo Dutti, Zara, Desigual… we could go on, and this one is just a small selection of Spanish fashion labels that have become famous worldwide.

But Spain doesn’t just produce funky threads in clothes for all fashionistas; that exciting influence is equally evident in cycling clothing, via Murcia-based brand Gobik.


Gobik cycling clothing

Founded in 2010, Gobik uses “clean lines and vibrant colors” to inspire its garments. For riders who want to hit the road in their own unique style – and we know that includes a large number of cyclists – Gobik offers something a little different.

Leading the way this summer is Gobik’s UNITY Warm24 range, specially designed to tackle the summer weather. “UNITY speaks about our origins, focused on the love for detail and the feel of fabrics. Garments with unparalleled technical and performance features in monochrome, tempo and minimalist patterns,” says the brand, and looking at the range it is difficult to disagree.

But instead of waxing lyrical at length, let’s let the products do the talking and reveal some of the exciting new options that might just add a bit of style to your summer cycling wardrobe this year.

Clothing

Grit 2.0 bib shorts – €130


Gobik GRIT 2.0 bib shorts

The Grit 2.0 is specifically designed for adventure cycling and – perhaps appropriately enough – an evolution of Gobik’s mountain bike-focused cargo shorts. It uses an all-new construction pattern to improve performance while staying super stylish in Evergreen or Toffee colors.

With four generous integrated pockets, Gobik’s K10 chamois for long-distance comfort and lightweight and high-stretch, breathable crew fabric, this is a product that truly combines performance with functionality and cycling chic.

Volt T-shirt – €88


Gobik VOLT jersey

We mentioned Spanish fashion brands in the intro and we believe that none of Gobik’s printed garments are more fashion-worthy than the Volt T-shirt, especially in this Nix colorway.

Don’t be seduced by looks alone, because the Volt is designed for practical adventure cycling, with super useful features such as highly breathable, soft-touch material and a relaxed construction with extra length.

The Volt’s real selling point, however, is its interior mounting system, which has been specifically developed for off-road disciplines. It prevents the pocket part from moving once it’s full, so whatever you’re carrying stays close to your back instead of bouncing around – cool and clever!

CX Pro 3.0 shirt – €90


Gobik CX PRO 3.0 jersey

If you’re looking for something even more performance-oriented, but that retains Gobik’s sense of visual pleasure, the CX Pro Jersey is the obvious option.

The CX Pro is actually one of Gobik’s core products, but has recently been drastically overhauled to be more aerodynamic, with an advanced seamless and laser-cut sleeve design. It is more breathable, with mesh side panels for greater comfort; lighter weight; and finished with attention to detail that puts more expensive products to shame. As you’d expect, it’s available in a number of unique print designs – this ‘Astral’ version is one of our favourites.

Absolute 6.0 bib shorts – €135


Gobik ABSOLUTE 6.0 bib shorts

Rarely is the name of a product appropriate. The Absolute bib shorts are the absolute latest in Gobik’s range and have been developed over generations to meet the needs of absolutely the most demanding riders.

The supportive shoulder straps are made with graphene wire and the exclusive high-performance Elastic Interface chamois provides increased comfort and performance, while the textured Lycra is highly breathable and provides balanced compression.

As you would expect from Gobik, the Absolute bib shorts also look great.

Phantom jersey – €105


Gobik Phantom jersey

Gobik’s newest and most technically advanced sweater, the Phantom, is perfectly named because, like a thief in the night, you might not even notice you’re wearing it.

The ‘SHADE’ fabric is the stretchiest material Gobik has ever used, while the semi-open structure offers high breathability and ultra-fast drying. At only 75 g for size M, this is the lightest jersey Gobik has ever made, and one of the lightest on the market.

With a fit that offers a great balance between comfort and performance, there really isn’t a better option for hot and humid conditions this summer.

Matt 2.0 bib shorts – €120


Gobik MATT 2.0 bib shorts

For riders who want something more traditional than the Absolute bib shorts, the Matt 2.0 Compact bib shorts should be at the top of your list.

Don’t be fooled by the minimalist aesthetic and matte finish; This product is packed with features, including a design focused on support and compression, using Gobik’s exclusive bi-elastic Lycra to maximize comfort on long rides. With soft and ergonomic shoulder straps and Gobik’s K10 pad with graphene yarn to suppress bacteria, this is truly a garment that will help you push your limits.

Tight jersey – €85


Gobik STARK jersey

To conclude our clothing overview, let’s end where we started, with some great print designs.

The Stark sweater has no shortage of practicality, with a relaxed classic cut; lightweight, soft and breathable fabric; micro-perforated sleeves; and three generous pockets. But it’s the four colorways – Icy, Azure, Moonless and Cherry – that we love. And if you can’t decide which is your favorite, why not get one of each?

accessories

Pouch Saddle Bag – from €30


Gobik POUCH GRANDE saddle bag

Of course, fashion houses don’t just make clothes; they often also have a selection of luxury accessories, such as handbags or wallets. And so it is with Gobik, only here we have the fantastic Pouch saddle bag available in Compact form for €30, or in the enlarged Grande version for €36. In both cases it is made of sturdy ripstop nylon and features of a waterproof cover, making it a simple yet stylish option for all your necessary riding essentials.

Lynx 2.0 Gloves – €32


Gobik LYNX 2.0 gloves

Finally, what does the typical high-fashionista need to complete the perfect outfit? Gloves!

Admittedly, the Lynx 2.0 is much more about substance than style: the four-way stretch jacquard mesh upper, perforated microfiber palm, tactile thread on index finger and thumb, and perforated neoprene cuff are all designed to enhance grip and improve control. and comfort. But with a choice of three colours, Hedge Green, Tofu and True Black, who says you can’t accessorize with style?
