No one was surprised when Troy Lee Designs and Aaron Gwin teamed up in 2013. This pair of great American cycling icons were practically destined to be together, as TLD’s cutting-edge grahpics and Gwin’s boundary-smashing performance fit perfectly with one another. Riding with Troy Lee apparel, helmets, and protection allows AG to relax and focus on riding as fast as possible, knowing that he’s more than covered when it comes to safety and style.
Luckily for you, Troy Lee offers the exact same gear that all their pros use, including the limited edition Aaron Gwin Signature Sprint Shorts and Jersey and D3 helmet. The Sprint Jersey is one of our favorites for XC, trail, and DH use, thanks to its light weight and breathable construction, long sleeves for protection, and comfortable, sweat-wicking collar. The Sprint jersey’s liberal use of mesh fabric makes for a very versatile apparel piece, ready for a Summer ride by itself, or paired with a base layer in Spring or Fall.
TLD’s Sprint Short is unbeatable when it comes to non-restrictive, light and breathable gravity apparel. Crash-proof 600 denier nylon makes up most of the Sprint’s chassis, with large front mesh panels and smaller mesh panels on the back for amazing airflow capabilities. A zippered fly with metal snap closure secures the waist, and fine fit adjustments are possible with velcro elastic tabs. Two zipped front pockets keep your critical items safe. Though low-profile, the pockets are big enough for a smaller smart phone.
Troy Lee is offering the Aaron Gwin Signature Sprint Kit in limited numbers, so if you want a jersey, shorts, or both, get on it! Word is that once they’re gone, they’re gone. Get on the train and show your support for American downhill with a TLD Gwin kit!
