Why is a Snow Brand making Bike Gear?

At Mons we are constantly experimenting with ever lighter and more breathable blends and structures of merino fabric. In doing so we came to realise that merino is not just for winter, in fact it’s a four-season fabric that works just as well in high summer as it does in the depths of winter…

Who the Hell Are Mons Royale?

These are valid questions and to answer them we have to start with the company’s roots. Mons is absolutely a product of its environment, New Zealand’s Deep South. A land of raging coastline, jagged mountains and vast turquoise lakes…

Mountains, forests, lakes and rivers

What better way to observe Canada’s birthday than to celebrate its natural beauty and let’s face it there’s no shortage of it. Majestic mountains, ancient forests and infinite rivers, lakes and waterfalls that go perfectly with long weekends, home made hot tubs and sleeping bags…

Crankworx Innsbruck 2018

City to Summit. An Innsbruck Adventure

Photographer Georg Lindacher and his friends head out for an innsbruck adventure to the mountains for a hike, slackline and weather permitting overnight adventure to enjoy the sunrise…


The ratio of fur coats to faded Gore-tex in Verbier, Switzerland leans fiercely towards the former. This exclusive resort can be prohibitively expensive, but the big mountains that host the Freeride World Tour final have also sheltered impoverished ski-bums chasing their dreams for decades…
