To help you out, we’ve listed the 5 most amazing German cycling brands for women.
Maloja’s motto is “Where the mountains are.” How fitting for the brand’s origin story, since it was founded in 2004 by a group of friends who stumbled upon a little town in the Alps called ‘Maloja’, where the snow was white and life was good.
Maloja offers a wide selection of high-quality activewear and streetwear for both men and women. You can dress in their items from head to toe: from chamois underpants and a heart-printed sports bra to shock-absorbing bib shorts and breathable bike shirts.

This trendy young brand was founded by two friends living in, you guessed it, Berlin. Feeling that the bicycle is the ultimate form of transportation in the city, they wanted to help make urban bikers feel safer in traffic, especially at night. Since they detest yellow safety vests, they looked for another way for cyclists to stand out in the dark.
So, the idea was to create stylish reflective accessories for better visibility in the dark. Reflective Berlin is responsible for the entire process: from conception to design to production. They offer cool reflective stickers in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Stickers for on your helmet, your bike, your backpack, your shoes, basically anything. Choose a trendy geometric pattern or go all out. Think Pacman, dinosaurs, unicorns, pineapples, you name it!
