Mons Royale is underwear and first-layer designed for the rider’s lifestyle. Perfect for up the mountain or on the city streets. We use Merino wool because it is simply superior to anything else on the market. It is soft, warm, regulates your temperature, and doesn’t stink. We are based in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand a small resort town near the bottom of the world. It’s here that we test our products and have gained a loyal following who are helping to take Mons Royale to the world! Launched in New Zealand, June 2009
The Mons Royale brand was born from seeing that underwear and first layer garments totally lacked style, or if they had style, failed in mere functionality. This inspired us to shake things up and create garments that are committed to design and style without compromising technical performance thanks to the miracle fibre: merino wool.
MERINO VS TRADITIONAL WOOL Compared to traditional wool, merino is a smoother and finer fibre which gives it a vastly superior texture and handle compared to traditional coarse wools. The smooth silk like feel ensures the wearer will enjoy an ‘itch-free’ experience, even on sensitive skin. MERINO VS SYNTHETIC Synthetic fibres such as polypropylene and polyester have a much simpler structure than natural wool fibres. These petroleum based fabrics do not absorb or release moisture and cannot breathe due to the simpler construction of synthetic fibres. When knitted into fabric, they are limited to one-way moisture movement – simply no comparison to the superb insulation elements of merino wool.
We are a specialist in a market gap: consumers, the media, VIP’s and pro-riders can connect with Mons Royale without causing clashes with their existing brand loyalties within the action-sports market. Most importantly, Mons Royale is approaching the market not with the intention of replacing an existing brand, but to add a new product and focus to a sector which has been neglected for too long.
Mons Royale merino has natural anti-odour qualities, it’s softer than you can imagine, insulates from cold and keeps you cool when hot. All delivered with uncompromised style. Wear it anytime, anywhere.
