Featuring themes of local mountain bike trails, comes a new range of artist-collab T-shirt designs from Shralp, a new Sheffield-based mountain biking clothing brand. Initially this includes 4 of Sheffield’s most recognisable mountain biking spots – Lady Cannings Plantation in Ringinglow, Parkwood Springs in Shirecliffe, Devils Elbow in Blacka Moor and Wharncliffe Woods near Grenoside.
In recognition of the hard work it takes to build and maintain such trails, Shralp are making a donation from each sale to local trail advocacy groups, Ride Sheffield and Peak District MTB.
The T-shirts are available via their website, www.shralp.co.uk , or from Bike Garage in the Hope Valley.
Created by 15 year old schoolboy Joel Blomfield, Shralp is aimed at the many mountain bikers who enjoy riding in the Peak District and is a unique celebration of the loyalty and pride all riders feel for their local trails. Joel set up the company with the help of his dad while off school during the COVID19 lockdown period, he said, “I love mountain biking and I love the Peak District. I wanted to do something creative around my interest in riding mountain bikes and so developing and launching Shralp has been perfect. I’ve really enjoyed working with these cool artists to turn my ideas into reality”.
Joel’s dad, Will, said, “I’m really proud of all the work Joel has put into making Shralp happen, especially during the challenges of lockdown. He’s had a very clear vision of how he wants the brand to evolve and this range is hopefully just the start. He’s already got more T-shirt ideas in the pipeline.” All the designs are printed onto 100% organic, vegan approved and Fair Wear Foundation certified cotton T-shirts.
