The Commencal Muc Off Team were crowned winning team of the DH World Cup Season at Val Di Sole.

A lot of grit, determination, engineering and precision went into making it happen and these guys really are the best of the best at what they do.

To kit out the best team on the circuit, their kits had to be EXTRA ordinary too. We started the season with four variations on a fade theme and ended the season on a tie dye tiger variation. We worked with an artist based in Morzine, to help draw the base that would make the pattern for this design for the last four rounds.

We're stoked to now launch this Val Di Sole replica kit and massive thanks to all involved in an amazing World Cup Season.

This was the start of the Tye Dye Tiger pattern for the jerseys for the season, working with artist Meryl Pardoen from Morzine.

We wanted something that was a variation on the Tie Dye kits from 2021, but new. We've worked with Meryl in the past for other prints, as y'all know we love a good fun print - and this one was perfect for us to transform into the variations for the last 4 rounds of the season.

Coming into the season we had worked with the Commencal Muc Off Team on a new performance fabric we call FTF (aka Fancy Team Fabric). It's super light weight and breathable with a silk-like on skin feeling. This comes also with a race fit, that's more streamlined for less drag.

So here it is: The Val Di Sole replica kit. This kit will make you turn down saturation on your latest riding footage. It's available in Youth, Mens and Womens.

The new light weight fabric feels like a dream and the slim race fit allows a flattering look while maintaining technical performance. The well known Gravity Pants, now also in electric pink/peach colour, perfectly compliment the VDS Race Jersey.

 Yesssss! So stoked for this kit. I've put in 4 seasons of bike park and local single track riding, almost daily, in the tie dye & cheetah DHaRCO kits...mud, snow, rain, heat, dirt, crashes, and they truly look and feel new. Cost per wear ends up being super low when clothing is made this high quality!

Matt Staggs makes incredible videos, and manages to pack so much intentisty and action into less than a minute here. The sounds and the angles are mesmerizing. Have to agree with Wilkin, "It's gooood!"
