The lightweight Descender V3 jacket from Alpinestars has a soft-touch main shell that is windproof and water resistant. Nylon mesh at the underarms increase airflow and the front zipper tucks away to avoid discomfort. The tail is extended and the jacket stows away when not in use in an integrated bag.
Alpinestars’ Paragon Lite MTB shorts are CE-certified Level 1 for hip protection. They have an innovative design of interlinked cell protectors that are perforated for airflow. There is abrasion-resistant fabric on the front panel and flexible memory foam panels that are impact- and abrasion-resistant on sides of the legs and the seat area.
The Trajecta helmet from 100% has built-in shock absorbers integrated between the helmet shell and the liner that improve protection by compressing and absorbing direct impacts. Multi-density EPS foam provides additional impact absorption, and the visor is adjustable. The lightweight helmet has a chinbar, 24 ventilation ports and includes a washable liner.
Using the technical DNA of Thor’s championship-winning motocross apparel, Thor’s MTB and e-MTB collection includes this moisture-wicking jersey made from durable polyester construction. The long-sleeved jersey has a snug performance fit and hybrid set-in sleeves for unrestricted movement.
The motocross-inspired Intense MTB shorts from Thor are constructed from premium in-Motion fabric. A rear yoke stretch panel allows additional mobility for active riding positions. The shorts have two zippered pockets, and an adjustable side cinch system keeps them in place.
