Shred Like a Girl was a twinkle in the founder; Shawnee’s eye in early 2020. After discovering mountain biking by accident and one dodgy XC bike later, Shawnee soon realised life on 2 wheels was for her.
Exploring everything Sydney had to offer, biking adventures soon took over, fuelling the passion and love for the sport even more, but there was a noticeable frustration starting to blight bike life; where were all the female mountain bike clothing brands? Why was it so hard to find well fitting and functional MTB clothes for women? How were women supposed to feel like they belong on mountain bikes if they couldn’t find the kit to fit them?
Covid 19 began its descent and the twinkle became an idea, a notepad came out and before you could say ‘we love bikes’, Shred Like a Girl was born.
Creating mountain bike clothing that promotes inclusivity in the sport is at the heart of our mission, we offer a range of women’s specific clothing in sizes XS to 3XL. Our designs draw inspiration from Australia and bring a unique, feminine vibe to the UK trails. You will look amazing and feel unstoppable when wearing Shred Like a Girl, no matter where or how you ride.
Shred Like a Girl is not just a MTB clothing brand, we are passionate about building a community and providing support to other females killing it in the sport. Women-only social rides provided us with the means to make friends after moving our life from Australia to the UK in December 2021. This was a lifeline for us and we know it will be important to so many of you out there, so we are dedicated to building a kick ass female community where we can share our love of bikes and inspire more women like you to get out and ride.
We have some huge dreams for the brand, including MTB coaching and bike maintenance courses for women, community trips to some of our favourite places and maybe one day even opening a MTB shop with a female focus. We hope you'll join us on our journey and enjoy our initiatives alongside us.
