Attention all mountain bikers! As you may have heard or seen, we were thrilled to announce our inaugural partnership with Crankworx Whistler 2023. We anticipated a charged atmosphere filled with insane downhill runs, gravity-defying air and style performances by the world’s best mountain bike athletes, and we were not disappointed—it was an event we are still talking about!

Last year's festival was packed with events, reaching its peak on July 28th with the Outdoor Research Speed and Style event. The world's elite battled head-to-head, aiming to cross the finish line first while showcasing their best freestyle maneuvers. This event was guaranteed to be one of the highlights of the entire festival!

Exciting news—we are headed back to Whistler in 2024! Be sure to mark your calendars and swing by our booth, where we will be giving away prizes and exclusive OR swag throughout the week.

Outdoor Research Freewheel MTB Collection

We're thrilled to announce the release of our upcoming mountain bike collection, available to the MTB world Spring 2024.

As a brand well-recognized for crafting gear that mountain bikers already love to ride in, our upcoming collection represents an embodiment of our history in progressive technical apparel design. Our cutting-edge materials and innovative technologies are tailor-made for the rigors of mountain biking. Uncompromising in durability and function, this collection goes beyond aesthetics, providing riders with the ultimate protection from the elements and environment.  

Just like you, we are looking for gear that performs with a fit that is dialed. Allowing you to focus on the trail - without worrying about snags when you graze a tree branch, being cold and wet if caught mid-ride in a downpour, or being annoyed with a poorly fitting pair of shorts or jersey - is our number one priority. Your time on the bike is sacred - don't waste it on gear that holds you back. 

Blaze your trail. Coming Spring 2024.
