Rider Inspiration | Clothing and Protection Designed by Dakine

by 0

Dakine takes what it has learned from designing technical mountain bike clothing over the years and combines it with some rider input, including a special edition “Aggy” print.

The 2019 range of Dakine clothing manages to balance technically impressive features with freeride ready style and all at a competitive price. Below we delve into the details of this fashionable range of trail ready kit, including a look at Dakine’s new jerseys, shorts, gloves and level 1 CE certified knee pads.

Dakine Thrillium Jersey

Riders with a view to going downhill faster and harder should take a look at the gravity inspired Dakine Thrillium short sleeve bike jersey. For the Thrillium, Dakine decided to opt for a cut that isn’t too close fitting and not too loose, giving the right balance in comfort and ultimate maneuverability. Again, there’s more style in the Thrillium’s design than most downhill jerseys making it an ideal bike park to bar shirt. Technical features of the Dakine Thrillium short sleeve jersey include a crew cut neck design, 2in (5cm) drop rear hem, 4-way stretch construction, Polygiene® Odor Control technology and 1 Year Limited Warranty.

Special Edition “Aggy” print.

The Thrilium Jersey was the one selected by Graham “Aggy” Assasiz to develop his special edition print, available in orange and black
