As summer approaches here in the United States, the Southern Hemisphere is moving toward its snowy season. That isn’t stopping anybody from riding in Queenstown though. One of those Queenstown riders happens to be Jackson Davis. Davis got some new apparel from Nukeproof, and decided to test it out on his local trails. I’m pretty sure the message here is that if you wear this apparel, you’ll ride like Davis. I can neither confirm nor deny.
So what’s the deal with the new apparel? Nukeproof has spent the last three years testing and designing ride-wear for trail riding to rallying the bike park. Here are the details.
The Nirvana line is a jersey and short combo made with high performance cordura fabric mixed with a lightweight woven material in the jersey. The shorts feature a four-way stretch, the seams are welded, and the crotch has been triple stitched for ultimate durability. It has zippered pockets and waist tabs, and an included pouch for holding sunglasses or goggles separate from other, scratchier, items. The jersey also has welded seams, along with external silicone-grippers on the shoulder to keep your pack from slipping around.
The Kashmir line is not dissimilar to the Nirvana line, it is just burlier. The shorts maintain a lightweight and stretchy fit, while also having a high rear waist. Nukeproof says all this makes it easier to move on the bike. The shorts have a waterproof pocket and feature a D loop to attach valuables to.
The Blackline features a relaxed fit, and a lightweight, stretchy material designed for comfort on the trail. The line is similar to Nirvana, but less burly and with more focus in wicking away sweat and keeping you cool. There is also a women’s specific short and jersey.
The Outland jersey is Nukeproof’s answer to casual riding wear that doubles as bar attire. Available in long-sleeve or short-sleeve options, the cut is casual and the material is a wicking fabric.
