Maloja was founded 15 years ago on the concept of combining function and style. Our goal was and is to this day to ensure you to feel comfortable in your bike gear after a ride, whether at a café or beer garden. Therefore, we were the first brand in mountain biking to offer both skin-tight cycling bibs and cool, relaxed riding shorts.

Maloja was founded 15 years ago on the concept of combining function and style. Our goal was and is to this day to ensure you to feel comfortable in your bike gear after a ride, whether at a café or beer garden. Therefore, we were the first brand in mountain biking to offer both skin-tight cycling bibs and cool, relaxed riding shorts.

In 2007 we launched our first winter collection, and because we are huge fans of Nordic sports, we wanted our cross-country skiing gear to be as functional and stylish as the summer mountain biking collection. So, what was the most obvious solution? Apply the mountain bike shorts concept to winter sports.









Today that combination of close-fitting tights (women‘s: MontunellaM. | men‘s: BergellM.) and a short, insulated pants (men‘s: GoliatM.) are an absolutely integral part of the Nordic skiing scene. We know from our own experience how amazing it is to have unlimited freedom of movement while still keeping your thighs and mid- section warm through integrating an additional layer of insulation. Since the cold is mostly felt on the front of a garment in cross-country skiing, we often only put the high-end Primaloft® insulation in the front of the shorts. For women, who prefer to have it warm all the way around and yet still keep their outfit feminine, we‘re seeing more and more adopting the skirt (TurbinascaM.). We like both options, and therefore find each item wonderfully stylish.
