Ok, so it may not be as cool as a new Yeti mountain bike, but when Yeti introduces new clothing it still gains attention. When asked why Yeti is going so deep on apparel their response was that to them, Yeti clothing is a reflection of how they choose to build and spec bikes. The Tribe of employees, team riders, and friends like what they like and this is a way to offer that with a little Yeti style mixed in.
Adding to an already attractive line, the latest pieces offer something for man, woman, enduro, or trail…
Perhaps taking a bit of inspiration from the world of college football, Yeti’s new Enduro gloves will spell out their name and the C from the Colorado flag if you put your hands together. That’s only for the charcoal model though, the Turquoise glove sticks with a black palm with turquoise details. Designed to be an extremely light weight, breathable glove, the Enduro lacks any closures and matches a perforated palm to a lightweight backing for $29.
The rest of the Enduro line for 2015 includes a $119 short and a $79 3/4 length sleeve jersey. The jersey is cut from lightweight polyester/lycra and provides a slim, race fit. They’re baggy, but they’re not. The Enduro jersey is on the left (also available in grey or yellow) with the WC Replica Jersey on the right.
Following a similar design theory as the Enduro glove, the Shorts use a slim, race fit and are meant to be as light as possible while still retaining their durability. Sold without a liner, the shorts offer a waist adjustment webbing, rear silicone gripper, and a single zippered pocket on the back of the waist.
If you preferred aesthetic is less enduro and more casual, the Tolland Jersey and Teller short combination may be a winner. The Tolland is a simple Tech T-shirt design with two rear storage pockets and a zippered media pocket. Made from fabric that is anti-microbial, and quick drying, the Jersey is available in three colors for $49.
The Teller is a somewhat matching pair of shorts with zippered side pockets, a Shock-N-Lok waist adjustment, and Velcro rear pockets. Offered in three colors, the $79 shorts have a 14″ inseam.
Women get similar design elements in the W’s Enduro jersey, but in purpose built garment with a few feminine touches. The $69 jersey comes in three colors and offers softer fabric touches at the neck and sides of the hips.
On the short side, the Norrie short is a true performance short made for women who shred. Offering similar features as the men’s Enduro short such as a rear silicone gripper, webbing waist adjustment and stretch panels, the Norrie adds a bit of ruching on the sides and glide panels on the inside of the knees. Built with a 12″ inseam, the shorts are sold without a liner for $95.
