The whole team are now stoked to announce that we have the addition to the Ride Wear range with a full Waterproof line up.

The new Autumn/ Winter line covers riders need both on and off the bike, with a collection of Jackets, ride sweaters and hoodies and Merino base layers, plus waterproof shorts to keep down below dry.

Designed for on the bike performance is the Blackline Waterproof Jacket.

The Blackline Waterproof is a super high-quality lightweight (115gsm2) 3 layer waterproof jacket, constructed from hard wearing 3 layer Nylon with stretch to never restrict your ride. The Blackline Waterproof as the name suggests is constructed from fully waterproof (20,00mm) and breathable (20,000gsm) fabric.

All seams are taped, to keep rain from seeping in through seems. For extra ventilation the jacket features under arm intakes to keep the air flow and regulate temperature.

All cuff’s are elasticated and articulated for comfort and to keep the elements out. Finished with waterproof YKK aquaguard zip’s to protect your valuables in dry pockets. As well as normal waist pockets, a phone/ audio stash pocket is hidden inside the chest with audio port for those that prefer to ride to a beat.

It’s designed for you to keep enjoying even the most brutal conditions on the trails.

Matching the Jacket are the Blackline Waterproof Shorts. These 3 layer Cordura Nylon waterproof shorts (10k) are designed to be hardwearing and breathable (10K) as well as protect you from the elements. For added protection from the water they feature ripstop gators under the leg hems to lock out the water. As with the jacket they feature waterproof YKK aquaguard zippers to help protect whatever’s in your pockets.  Like all Nukeproof shorts they are fully adjustable waist band with double popper closure for security whilst riding.

In Addition to the waterproof we have the Blackline Softshell. Designed to be slightly heavier weight 266gm2, it’s more suited to colder days in the saddle, with it’s waterproof membrane (15k/10k) outer shell with DWR coating and lined with a waffle fleece.

Again, it features waterproof YKK zips and a fitted hood to go over your helmet to lock in the warmth and subtle branded details.

In addition to the Blackline range we have the more casually inspired Outland collection.

This includes an insulated Primaloft jacket, perfect for off the bike and keeping warm after rides. This is matched with casual inspired ride apparel with the Outland Tech hoodie, Outland Hoddie and Outland sweater designed to offer off the bike looks with on the bike performance.

The Outland hoodie and Sweater are casually cut, but made from moisture wicking performance fabrics.

The inner fabric is lightweight fleece lining to offer warmth on some cold weather rides or layer up with the jackets and Merino Baselayers.

As with any “winter outfit” your always told the key is to layer up. Nukeproof are big fans of Merino and have included two new baselayers.  Made from superfine grade 18.5 micron 100% merino yarn, both offer high level comfort against the skin as well as natural odour resistance, wicking properties and breathability. Available in a Long sleeve ¼ zip version and long sleeve round neck cut.
