Summer 2016 is starting to look better with all kinds of fresh new wearables rolling in. Check out the new slimmed down shorts from Mission Workshop, fun jerseys from Twin Six, and Ekoi’s reversible jacket and vests…
For those that dig the casual look of baggies but prefer a more secure fit, the folks at Mission Workshop tailored their Traverse MTB shorts down a little in the new Traverse XC Short. Made of a 4-way stretch mil-spec fabric that is quick drying and wicking, the Traverse XC ($165) comes in charcoal or camo print, has dual cargo pockets, an integrated waist belt, and a gusseted inseam.
Always coming up with styles to put some fun in your ride, Twin Six put their own stylish spin on the climber’s and world champ jerseys ($85). The men’s Wound Up mixes things up with the world champ colors and the women’s Polka adds a colorful spin in the hill-climbers jersey. The Polka theme is also available on their women’s bibs ($105) and shorts ($100).
Not since I was privy to a reversible Members Only hand-me-down have I wanted something reversible till I saw this. The Ekoi SL Vest (on sale for $109.90) and LS Jacket (on sale for $125.61) let you choose to be better seen when out in the wild, but when looking like a day-glow fred isn’t needed, flip the sleeves out for a more stylish black shell. Both have their StormShield shell that is waterproof, breathable and flexible.
