Dialling in the fit of the garments, new fabrics, new manufacturing and printing techniques, its been a constant evolution for the Nukeproof Ridewear range. We’re stoked to launch the new Spring/ Summer range with refinements made and several new garments to our ranges.
We’ve taken note from our riders/ customers feedback to make some subtle improvements to the Ridewear for our second season. Again, we have Nirvana (“Race” inspired trail kit), Kashmir (Downhill), Blackline (trail) and Outland (Casual Ridewear). Check out the full line up here
Nirvana; our high-end race inspired kit. Developed with our athletes for ultimate comfort and performance for those long days in the saddle to exceed the demands of enduro races. For 2019 we introduce both a men’s and women’s lines with an all new refined fit to the waist and leg length and shape.
The Nirvana range features performance high tech fabrics from Cordura™. Designed to be lightweight and breathable whilst still being tough and durable on the bike. 4-way stretch fabrics feature through the range allowing riders unrestricted movement and comfort on the bike. Vents are precision laser cut, with seem flat welded to make garments lightweight and comfortable against the skin, all finished with chunky hard wearing YKK zippers.
The shorts are still packed with essential features like a removable eyewear bag to carry your glasses or goggles on long transitions and D loop to attach valuables too.
A new addition to the Nirvana range is a 2 ½ layer fully waterproof (15,000mm) and breathable (30,000mm) lightweight jacket. The jacket features Waterproof pockets, adjustable hem, audio port, high-quality taped seams, subtle Nukeproof branding and is packable into itself for easy storage.
Through the Kashmir line we have updated the fabric, fit and cut for 2019. Kashmir apparel is designed for downhill with its super tough 4 way stretch fabric offering protection along with the freedom of movement on the bike.
The Kashmir shorts feature adjustable waits, zip pockets (with secure D Loop) and are DWR coated to keep of the worst of the weather on the track. Whilst tough, the jersey and shorts are designed to be lightweight and breathable with laser cut ventilation.
Our Premium trail wear is the Blackline range. A relaxed cut with high performance fabrics that offer fast wicking, breathable, lightweight stretch to allow you to perform and stay focused on enjoying the ride. Featuring both offerings for dry and wet weather Blackline is designed to keep you riding no matter the condition outside. Available in both men’s and women’s line ups.
For 2019 we have tailored the fit of the shorts featuring slightly shorter inseam and a tapered leg, but still designed to be sit well with knee pads.
The Blackline range is perfect for trail centre/ Bike park shredding, long XC adventures and those seeking a casual yet performance look. Shorts are made from High quality stretch polyester (DWR coated for extra protection against the unknown.) to allow your body to move unrestricted on the bike and absorb and wick effectively away from your skin.
Made from recycled S-Café ™ fabrics with a rear venting panel the Blackline Jerseys are super breathable, fast wicking and quick drying as well as anti-microbial. They are available in long sleeve and short sleeve. Added to the range for SS19 is the addition of a short sleeve Merino wool baselayer.
All new for 2019 is the Outland Ridewear line up. Designed to have a clean look, relaxed casual fit for both on and off the bike. No racy graphics or colour, riders can blend neatly into “none rider society” whilst enjoying post ride hydration in a pub/ café whist still having the benefits of performance Ridewear on the trails.
The super clean Outland shorts are constructed from stretch fabric and feature secure double button fit and adjustable waist tabs keep them locked in place, with 3 pockets (including a single zip pocket) for storage and a D loop for securing valuables to. Jerseys are available in long and short sleeve and raglan tee cut with light weight soft touch fabric to mimic a casual tee, but with built in performance for on the bike.
Included in the Outland collection is a selection of hoodies and sweaters. Designed using performance fabrics, but casual cuts to work both on and off the bike.
Out now, with the complete Nirvana arriving late May 2019.
