These have been teased for a while now, but G-Form’s RPT (Reactive Protection Technology)  will soon cover your hands as well. Using the impact reactive protection on your knuckles makes a lot of sense – it’s flexible to allow effortless movement of your fingers on a normal basis, but instantly hardens upon impact to protect those knuckles when you need it most.

SOC18 Roundup: Clothing (and clean up) from Tasco, G-Form, and White Lightning

Combined with a breathable mesh upper, a seamless palm with touch screen compatible fingers, a pre-curved fit, and just a hint of padding on the palm, the gloves look like they could be a great way to add a bit of protection to your hands for $59.99. Available very soon.

Tasco MTB continues to build their brand as a stylish clothing company that also builds in a healthy dose of performance. New to the mix are their Session Tees which look like your average t-shirt, but are really performance oriented, moisture wicking apparel. Offered in two options, both are made in California and feature 1″ longer torso lengths than your average shirt for better ride coverage.

The BiPolar shirts use a double sided fabric which feels like your typical cotton tee on the outside, but has a moisture wicking inside face to keep you dry. The Sustain is more of your standard performance tee with DriRelease fabric for quick dry, wicking comfort. Both styles are available in multiple colors for $35.

Again, the kids get in on the action as well with new Kids’ sizes for their Double digits gloves and socks. Offered in many of the same patterns as the adult sizes, the Kids’ gloves sell for $29.99 and the socks go for $14.98.

And at the end of the day when you’re ready for clean up, White Lightning has you covered there as well. Their new Body & Bike wipes are just as they sound – a cleaning wipe that is safe to use on your body or your bike. Featuring a light cucumber scent, the wipes will clean and moisturize your skin while cleaning every part of your bike and are sold in reasonable 15 wipe packages so you can use all of them before they dry out (though the package is resealable). The wipes are made in the USA and will sell for $3.99 for a 15 count pack.
