This is a bit of a weird one to write with current events making new bike product seem somewhat less significant compared to the challenges faced. But we also need too credit the fruits of many hours of work from our apparel designer Lynsey. We are super proud of what she has achieved, plus, she’s just about to go on maternity so all the best from the whole of the Nukeproof team with Baby Grattan.
High praise for the collection is that Sam Hill and the CRC Pro Mountain Bike Team have chosen to use Nukeproof Ridewear for the 2020 season. A huge endorsement for the Ridewear to be tested at the highest level and we can’t wait to see the team out there entertaining the world when the timing is right.
So, what’s new for 2020:
Nirvana range (Men’s & Women’s range):
(Jerseys out now, Shorts Delivery TBC Est May)
For when only the best is good enough.
Where ultimate performance is key. The Nukeproof Nirvana range used premium branded fabrics, cut and finish for the ultimate performance and comfort. For 2020 the Jersey features all new sleeves allowing better ventilation, but still retaining the Cordura™ outer arm and elbow protection to keep this garment looking fresh. The main body of the jersey is made from a super lightweight fully sublimated 4 way stretch (89% Polyamide, 11% Elastane), with a breathable laser cut mesh back to allow your body to breath and move unrestricted on the bike. All seams are welded to allow mobility and comfort against your skin so you can concentrate on the trail without any irritation.
We’ve fitted silicon gripper patches on the Nirvana jersey shoulders (see above image) to help lock a hydration packs in place on even the roughest trail. For 2020 the Nirvana jersey sleeves have been reworked. They now include a lightweight mesh on the inside to increase stretch and improve ventilation. The outer arms retain a durable tear resistant fabric to reduce snagging from gorse and bushes, while the addition of anti-abrasive Cordura® arm patches to offer added protect in the event of an impact or heavy debris. All these features result in the ultimate trail-enduro jersey, blending lightweight performance with tough and durable features.
The Nirvana Shorts are constructed using a tough but lightweight 4-way stretch fabric. Designed to offer incredible freedom of movement while at the same time resisting scrapes from trailside debris. For ultimate durability all shorts are triple stitching on the inner leg seams, adding long lasting strength and toughness. Seams that come in contact with the rider’s skin (Hem and waistband) are bonded for incredible comfort.
Double secure wait poppers, plus inner waist adjusters allow riders to dial in the perfect fit and perfectly complement by silicon grippers on the inner waist to lock the short in position. Two bonded zipper pockets plus an inner pocket with detachable goggle bag provides easily accessible storage space for essential kit. Tough, light, durable, comfortable – the ultimate trail shorts.

Super casual inspired trail wear, but with high performance fabrics.
Not every rider wants to look like there off for a race, if you are into subtle technology then the Outland line up is for you. Designed to be at home on the bike, but comfortable fit in at your post ride watering hole.
The Long and short sleeve jerseys are constructed with DriRelease® technology which keeps riders cool, dry, fresh and comfortable whilst retaining a casual touch and look. The comfort of DriRelease® fabrics used is not from chemical finishes, but instead built into each thread meaning the benefits are absolutely permanent and much eco-friendlier. It will not wash out over time. The brilliance of DriRelease® fabrics is the engineered combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibres that allow them to engage with moisture naturally to dramatically improve how wetness is pulled from the skin and released into the air.
The Outland Shorts pack in features and they’re built tough – triple stitched hems provide extra strength in areas prone to wear and tear, while high-quality YKK popper buttons and YKK zips offer a bombproof feel. The inseams are long enough to work with knee pads and not give that “uncomfortable kneepad, short hem On the inner waist band are adjuster tabs to dial in that perfect fit. Around the waist, you’ll also enjoy the comfort of a mesh lining which also helps wick away sweat from this key area. Two front pockets one with a lanyard D-loop for attaching keys too and a zipped side leg pocket is ideal for stashing your phone and valuables.
