7 Protection Flex Short Liner - Men's
While we often like to remain in denial to being mere mortals, mother nature likes to remind us every so often with a solid knock off the bike, sending you careening into the trees for a little dash of humbling reality. These blows can be day-enders, or even season enders, or you can slide on a pair of 7 Protection Flex Short Liners before you hit the trail for solid protection that helps you get right back up again to keep pushing the limits of your superpowers. These shorts offer a compressive fit that hugs your muscles while you ride, but more importantly, polygon foam padding shielding your hips, thighs, and tail bone when you go down hard.
7 Mesh utilizes this polygon layout for the padded sections so that you can experience a natural flex and stride on the bike, moving with you with minimal restriction while still providing impact absorption. The padding is strategically placed to provide coverage in areas most prone to big hits, with emphasis in giving peace of mind and confidence to riders who have had previous injuries to the hip or coccyx. Carrying protection and comfort further, the shorts have an integrated chamois pad to give you cushion for long days on the bike. It uses multi-density foam to relieve pressure and reduce the chances of hot spots and chaffing, and flat lock stitching to keep irritating seams out of your way.
100% R-Core-X DH Pant - Men's
Pilot your slacked-out downhill rig with precision and unflappable confidence while wearing the 100% Men's R-Core-X DH Pant. This downhill-specific pant is constructed of burly fabrics with a breathable mesh crotch to prevent overheating when you're riding and racing in sweltering conditions. Tapered legs won't snag in your drivetrain, while providing full range of motion required for blistering downhill courses and bigger jumps. It's reinforced in the seat with stretch Cordura fabric that prevents ripping and fraying where abrasion is common.
Instead of the normal buckled ladder strap used by 100%, they've moved to Coheasive technology at the waistline, which is comprised of an integrated shock cord adjustment that tightens precisely for a fine-tuned fit without slipping. Additionally, you'll find a hidden snap closure and zippered fly for making bathroom pitstops in the woods if necessary, as well as a convenient zippered pocket for storing an extra energy bar to fuel your downhill runs and training laps.
Yeti Cycles Enduro Short - Men's
When you're rolling up to the starting gate, performing your pre-race ritual, and visualizing your line ahead, it's critical to properly prep yourself. Double check your tire pressure, your helmet, and make sure you've decked yourself out with the Yeti Cycles Enduro Shorts for durability you can rely on when the lines get a little hairy, but a lightweight feel that doesn't hold you back. The Enduro Shorts make performance their utmost priority, with stretch polyester fabric that moves with you when you pump down steep rock faces, and a slimmer, race fit that won't snag when you cut it a little too close to tree branches.
The shorts carry through with last year's strategic paneling of stretch and supportive fabrics, giving you what you need just where you need it. Wicking material makes up the bulk of the shorts, to keep you dry when the pressure is on, and extra-stretch is given to the back panel for total comfort on the bike. This year the shorts received an update with an additional pocket, giving these low-profile shorts a spot to stash a multi-tool in case you're riding self-supported and need to go to town on a quick trailside mechanical. The waist features low-profile tech webbing to help you dial in the perfect fit, while silicone grip hits both sides of the waistband to lock your shorts in place, and keep your jersey from sliding up your back when you're hammering down the trail, chasing down the podium.
Gore Bike Wear Power Gore Windstopper Glove - Men's
You've got your winter kit dialed with the warmest bibs, thermal jersey, and element-blocking jacket that money can buy, but don't leave your digits as an afterthought. Wrap them up with the Gore Bike Wear Power Gore Windstopper Glove for wind-splitting warmth that keeps your digits dexterous when the temperatures dip.
The gloves begin with a soft and fleecy lining that traps heat and wicks away sweat, for the perfect warm foundation to build on. A durable polyester shell protects the back of your hand, along with a polyester-elastane palm that offers stretch where you need it, so you have flexibility to shift and maneuver on the bike. The palm also gets decked out with foam padding at the heel and forehand to absorb vibrations from rough roads. Between layers you'll find lofty polyester wadding that adds a boost to thermal insulation, so you can retain warmth, while breathing and wicking away sweat, so you don't end up with clammy hands. Because cold weather riding often happens during the months with short days and little sunlight the Power Gore WindStopper gloves have a reflective band along the fingers, so motorists can be made more aware of your presence, and your next move when they see you flash in their headlights.

On the hottest trail days you'll appreciate the attention to detail in the Boundary Shorts, with inner leg mesh that lets cool air in constantly, and wicking fabric that pulls away sweat to keep you dry.

Showers Pass Syncline Jacket - Men's
While dry dirt and clear skies make for a great ride, they don't happen too often for you. You don't mind.

Named after a particularly lush stretch of singletrack in the Columbia River Gorge, the Syncline is designed to keep you dry on the inside and out on long rides in wet, misty conditions.
Featuring a 2.5-layer waterproof hardshell construction, the Syncline should feel far bulkier than it does. Instead, it's breathable and highly mobile. As you lean into a banked corner or pedal hard into a slick climb, the fully taped fabric will seal out rain and wind without impacting your ability to move. Plus, reflective accents and heavy venting keep you both visible to other trail users on dim days, and able to breathe.

Etxeondo Attaque Bib Tight - Men's
The hardest part of winter training is taking the first step out the door, leaving the comfort of your glowing fire and reaching into the frosty cold for your base miles. Etxeondo is there to make the transition a bit smoother, with the help of their Attaque men's Bib Tight. Don't let its simple and smooth appearance fool you, what these bibs lack in extra panels they more than make up for in elevated fabrics that offer compression and support when the mercury drops.
Etxeondo's own Carbon fabric makes up the body of the Attaque Bib Tights, with exceptional wicking properties that pull away sweat and keep your skin dry. The fabric offers natural odor fighting, thanks to the carbon infused threads, so you maintain freshness throughout your ride. Compressive by nature, the fabric works to reduce lactic acid build up, improving blood flow, enabling those last rough miles and steep efforts to feel just a little bit easier. Etxeondo claims that their Carbon fabric features conductive fibers that absorb and dissipate the electrical charge produced during physical activity, meaning better heat transfer and retention in the fabric, and while we haven't had a chance to test it out, it's an exciting idea for those of us who spend our winters spinning in cold climates. Because of its conductive fibers, Etxeondo rates the warmth of these bibs as being ideal for temperatures from 32-to-54 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Attaque Bib Tights feature a Carbono Chamois, which offers multiple panels of indented memory foam. These panels move independently with the body, helping with even wait distribution and shock absorption. Your sensitive skin will appreciate the blend of carbon and microfiber fabric that gently brushes against you, reducing friction and improving moisture control to minimize hot spots. The chamois features a totally seamless construction to eliminate points that cause chaffing, so you can experience an irritation free ride.
