Summer Season: Our Favourite Off-Piste Styles

Just because the pistes are closed doesn’t mean we’re closed for summer! Our summer range of activewear, cycling gear and everything in between is now instore, and here online.

Our selection includes gym leggings, lightweight jackets, cycle wear, sunglasses and flipflops – everything you will need for a summer trip to the mountains, a cycle ride or just out getting active in the sunshine. Featuring many of our favourite brands that you may recognise from our winter gear including CMP, Protest, Dirty Dog and Five Seasons to name a few.

We’ve collected a few of our favourite styles here for you to browse – the full range can be viewed on our website, or instore whilst you enjoy one of our new summer treats in Coffee Corner!

Summer Cycling

We are very excited to showcase our summer cycle wear this year as we increase our cycling range with stylish cycling jerseys from Italian Company CMP (F.lli.Campagnolo SPA) and Swedish Company CRAFT.

CMP have always produced functional yet stylish skiwear which we have stocked here at Love and Piste for many years, but now their cycling range does not disappoint.

Their women’s jerseys are colourful and functional with three rear pockets and a handy zipped pocket too. Some have full zip fronts and are sleeveless – helpful for avoiding those cyclist’s tan lines in the sun! 

For the casual cyclist CMP have produced regular style summer shorts with an inner removable pad so that you are protected on your bike but do not have to wear full lycra.

For the men, the jerseys have a retro feel with geometric, colourful designs, front zips, rear pockets and everything you would expect in functionality.

The CRAFT range offers sustainable jerseys made from recycled materials, using a cleaner solution dye ensuring every ride is an eco-friendlier experience. Their bib shorts and packable wind-stopper jackets and gilets provide protection on those less warm days out on the saddle.

Our SALICE helmets have also been well received. Their Italian style and design offers cyclists a lightweight helmet with a built in rear safety light and inner insect mesh.

  • 2 year guarantee on all helmets
  • Crash replacement policy offering 50% off the purchase of a new helmet

Delicious Delights

As we welcome more and more cyclists to our Coffee Corner we learn more about what our cyclists like from their clothing, as well as what they enjoy eating to refuel on their long distance rides!

We know you usually prefer a strong Americano and a delicious teacake – and that’s why we’ve perfected our Off Piste coffee blend for the perfect espresso!

But this summer we’ve introduced some new delicious options to keep you refreshed and rejuvenated on your ride. Check out our summer delights including Iced Coffee and Fresh Fruit Smoothies, as well as our favourite Doddington Dairy Ice-cream pots.

Sunglasses & The Rest

What’s summer without a trusty pair of sunglasses? Our sunglasses range offers a variety of mirrored, polarised and interchangeable lenses in a number of different colours! With brands including SALICE, UVEX and Dirty Dog, there is a pair to suit everyone, whether you are a regular cyclist or just need a stylish pair for your next holiday!

Beyond our active wear, we also have a lovely range of summer t-shirts, shorts, flip-flops and lightweight jackets. Pop in store for a browse and grab yourself a coffee while you’re at it, or take a peek here on our website.

In the meantime, enjoy your summer holidays whether at home or away!

And remember that whilst it may be summer, we are the Ski Shop that stays OPEN all year round, with our skiwear on sale until the beginning of next season!

So grab yourself a bargain – the ski holidays have just been released and there are already offers to be had on holidays, so why not treat yourself to a new jacket or salopettes whilst you can!
