With a new season for shredding comes new women’s riding collections and one to really stand out from the crowd is the new Troy Lee Designs women’s MTB range.
We’ve gotten our mitts on the latest Ruckus and Skyline collection for 2018 with the scepticism, because could anything from TLD really rival their awesome collection from last year? We endeavoured to find out…
Troy Lee Designs Women’s MTB Ruckus Collection
Bold and in your face, the Ruckus collection is your all-trail, all-mountain, all-adventure kit.
Available in hot orange, cool blue and tranquil teal, the Ruckus collection consists of a 3/4 length jersey and matching shorts. The jersey itself is constructed from a lightweight polyester mesh material which offers supreme airflow to keep your body cool.
A couple of things that stood out for me were the tailored women’s fit, whilst remaining loose, it cinched in at the waist and offers a fitting sleeve shape that didn’t leave the jersey feeling too baggy or unflattering. Once more, the neckline is comfortably low, which for me, is a Godsend because there’s nothing more irritating for me than having a high collar rub against my throat. Another popular feature for me was the zip stash pocket in the rear of the jersey which is perfect for keys and snacks!
Oh, and of course, there’s the brilliant orange which sets the trail ablaze with a ferocity alights your riding when you’re getting low and steezy.
