It's probably the quietest launch to date by the Californian brand, landing back in May (nearly flying under our radar) and is a complete juxtapose to the skin tight Lycra we're used to seeing from Specialized.  

The Fjällräven X Specialized collaboration is a small capsule collection, with the aim of containing all you could possibly want for hopping on your bike for a casual cruise across town or few days away from home.

Hannah is Cycling Weekly’s longest-serving tech writer, having started with the magazine back in 2011. She has covered all things technical for both print and digital over multiple seasons representing CW at spring Classics, and Grand Tours and all races in between.

Hannah was a successful road and track racer herself, competing in UCI races all over Europe as well as in China, Pakistan and New Zealand.

For fun, she's ridden LEJOG unaided, a lap of Majorca in a day, won a 24-hour mountain bike race and tackled famous mountain passes in the French Alps, Pyrenees, Dolomites and Himalayas. 

She lives just outside the Peak District National Park near Manchester UK with her partner, daughter and a small but beautifully formed bike collection.
