The Troy Lee Designs 2017 Ride Collection is finally here, and it is absolutely massive! In fact, this is one of the biggest mountain bike releases of the year. Troy Lee has made a name for themselves in the motorsport world, but is quickly gaining recognition among the MTB crowd. Known for their unique style and high quality products, it’s no wonder that Troy Lee Designs is leading the pack!
Mountain Bike Jerseys
The men’s line alone includes a dozen different mountain bike jerseys. It features a good mix of old & new models, like the best-selling Skyline Jersey. This MTB jersey is made from 100% polyester that does an excellent job at keeping riders cool when they’re working up a sweat. If riders are looking for even more ventilation, then Skyline Air Jersey is the right move. The highly breathable material is perfect for riding through hot terrain. It is even equipped with a mesh panel on the back for superior breathability.
This new line of TLD mountain bike jerseys has a good range of styles, colors, and materials. The 2017 Ride Collection features short sleeves, long sleeves and 3/4 cuts. Their short sleeve designs have been their most popular models among riders because of the freedom that they afford. The long sleeve jerseys, like the Sprint Air, are heavily inspired by their moto racewear lines. Troy Lee Designs is known for their loud patterns and eye-popping colorways, which has made their so gear iconic over the years. However, TLD has changed it up a bit with some earth tone color palettes for the more subdued riders, like the Compound S/S Jersey. Both the Compound and Network Jerseys fit like a casual t-shirt, rather than a jersey. With the huge variety, riders will have no problem finding a mountain bike jersey that will fit their riding style.
Mountain Bike Shorts & Pants
Like the jerseys, their shorts and pants provide a wide range of choices for riders. The Skyline Shorts are a sweet option for riders who prefer a more casual look. They feature two side pockets for handy storage and zipper garages to keep the zippers from catching. This pair is great both on the trails or around town! Many of the shorts are compatible with the Troy Lee Air 2.0 Short Liner (Chamois), which provides an extra layer of protection. Shorts are the better option in most situations due to the natural range of motion that riders need to compete. However, if riders need a bit more coverage, the Sprint Pants are the way to go! The pants are made from durable 600D polyester that resist tears, abrasions and trail shrapnel.
Womens Mountain Bike Gear
With more & more women getting into the sport, it’s important that they have the best gear available. That’s why Troy Lee Designs has adapted their best selling lines to fit female riders. The Womens Skyline and Ruckus Jerseys give riders a short sleeve and a 3/4 sleeve option, respectively. The shorts and jerseys have similar colorways which allows female riders to mix & match to find their own custom look. The ladies can now get their hands on the Ace 2.0 Glove that received a redesign in this release as well.
