Our Story

Queen of the Mountains was founded by women who wanted to make a big difference to women’s cycling – starting first with making beautiful performance cycling apparel that is designed specifically for the female form and secondly through building a community of women cyclists who inspire and motivate each other to ride and to conquer their own mountains.

Our inspiration for the name and the spirit behind the brand came from cycling 1,000kms up and over the French and Italian Alps six years ago and seeing less than a handful of women who were doing the same. We believed that there should be more women experiencing that feeling of freedom and exhilaration you get when you ride through the big mountains and that women should have the inner confidence and belief that they can do it.
