Pants are a go to choice for many riders through the winter slop, keeping you cleaner and drier. The Dewit pants share the same materials and styling as the jacket, also with an elastic waist band and cuff. You'll also find the addition of a zipper near the ankle closure to pull them on and off easily. Availability is estimated for mid-September for both garments.

A quick-release waist buckle keeps things simple to use and shouldn't pop open as easy as a snap button. Availability is estimated for mid-September.

Sombrio enters the trouser market with under the Vanquish line with a DWR treated 4-way stretch material. a seamless crotch keeps things comfortable while pedalling seated and the fly and wait have velcro closures.

 Those Dewit pants are dumb my grandma went to the local thrift store and bought me a pair of like new water proof cycling pants that only cost $15. they work great the cuffs look better otherwise they look the same.

Man us mountain bikers are crazy we will spend $ 8,000 on a bike that we need serviced every month, we will spend $250 for some plastic pants that don't even breathe, don't even get me started on mtb jerseys... people will spend $70 for a overpriced long sleeved polyester shirt that has some logo of a company that either sells overpriced suspension or overpriced bikes. At least put pockets on them like a road riders jerseys. so I don't need to shell out money for a fanny pack Oh, wait its a hip pack sorry.

Isn't it great being a mountain biker...

 It is great, because absolutely none of that stuff is required to get out in the woods and have a great time. Lots of “us mountain bikers” have bikes that cost less than 25% of that price, service them ourselves at home and ride in reasonably priced utilitarian gear, like the pants that you mentioned. Designer companies releasing really expensive bike-specific gear doesn’t mean you’re no longer allowed to hit the trail without it.

 @jakalwil: for real. i spent about 8 of my 10 years riding mtb riding in just old tracksuit bottoms and ill fitting shirts lol

 I guess with clothing it's as linear as with bikes. Some people spend 8k on a bike and don't mind an 80 bucks t-shirt. I spend maybe 2k on a bike and 20 on a t-shirt. So it's all in proportion. To each their own, just enjoy the ride. And yeah, it's still a kind of pricey sport. But mainly because I'm an idiot who keeps buying new stuff
  • 12 5
 I can assure you they are not the same if you take a closer look. if you are happy with 15$, don't bother buying more expensive stuff.

as a product developer (non mtb industry) I have a diffrerent prespective. One needs to appreciate the amount of work that goes in any product, started from market research all the way into production. if you say "stuff is overpriced", how exactly do you know this? have you made the cost calculations to determine the margin of those companies? or are you just complaining about universe being a hard place to get by?

 Some mtb specific gear is good like shoes or gloves, but I stopped buying mtb brand tops and jerseys years ago and switched to generic sports tops for a fraction of the price (Under Armour or similar always work well).

 @tremeer023: True. Also you can buy that clothing at the end of the season (or next year) for a fraction of the original price.

 @Sethsg This just in: used item was cheaper than new item. Shocking.

 @tremeer023:

Yep, I prefer to ride in Nike Dri fit t-shirts. Can be found for less than $20 easily. They're plain, small logo and every bit as good, if not better in the fit and breathability departments.

It's all a choice...we all decide on what's important to us in where we spend our $$. Ill put money into my bike, helmet, shoes etc. Ill also spend on chamois and gloves, not on name brand baggies and outerwear for summer riding. It's not right or wrong, just my choice

 I tend to agree, but everybody values things differently. I haven't bought a whole high end MTB apparel, but I can definitely say that the few pieces of high end clothing and outdoor apparel I have bought over the year...it's definitely A LOT better than the cheap stuff I have bought. Lasts much longer, more comfortable, fits better. If you just want something that fits better and makes you feel better, then go for it. I also think there's something to buying something that is well made and keeping it for a long time instead of buying very cheap and constantly be replacing; waste in clothing is wide ranging issue probably beyond this message board. I bought an Under Armour cold gear long sleeve for sports back in high school (back when still made in USA) and it was super pricey at the time. But it's still, almost 20 years later, the against the skin layer I wear in almost all cold sporting activities weather it be skiing or mountain biking. It's crazy how long that thing has lasted.

 That Dakine kit looks ideal for those rainy days when you want to go for a ride but you have to deal meth later.

 When you are showing brands that are not on the Eurobike exhibitor list it is probably the only way.

 @Riggbeck: so more of a "not even eurobike 2021 - complete random" post then.
Brands paying to be "outside" the show?

 It's an odd one, brands that publicly pulled out of Eurobike a few years ago appeared on the Pinkbike virtual coverage of a show that didn't happen last year as well.

 My favorite was the Sombrio Kit

 Sombrio jersey 129 USD, shorts 199 USD. Dianese jersey 89 USD shorts 169 USD. I was always a Sombrio fan but the lack of an importer in the UK and prices like that I wont be rushing to get any more.

 @number-6: All good, just see if you can find something on the PB buy and sell from the early 2000's. Sombrios styling hasn't changed a bit

 I wonder if the price tag comes with the ethics behind how it's made. I am a fan of a bargain but always conscious if the product is suspiciously cheap whether it's made through use of child label or modern slavery. These ones crazy expensive though and I am in the market for new knee pads now.
  • 1 0
 Would you buy those pads? They would need to be significantly better than what's out there for me to consider putting that tacky logo on my knees.
  • 1 0
 I love me some Dakine but I bought one of their waterproof breathable jackets about five years ago and didn't get six months and more than a few users put off it before the waterproofing was non existent and the interior was delaminating/falling apart. I hope the new materials are much better.

 I've been using the Dainese Trail Skin Air pads all summer long. They flow an amazing amount of air - it's like air conditioning on my knees/elbows. Only fell a few times in em, but they did their job. The new ones with the little circular skid plate is a curious addition, and the the little pad above the knee is a nice addition. Great pads for hot weather riding.

 Are the Sombrio threads for virtual riders only???

 Zwift kit.

 I don't mind spending the money but those knee pads don't look like they are worth $140+ USD

 I read it 3 times, steel knee cap? I'm a big fan of the original trail skins, and would be tempted to but these if the price was dropped by half. Steel though? I'd love to know why.

 @fielonator:

Mee too! Even looks like the cap is held in place by three screws - good luck crashing on those
But at least they got rid of the „open back of the knee“ design.

 @fielonator: So you can rub your knee in the hairpins?

 @fielonator: I think its an Italian passive aggressive middle finger to all the keyboard warrior idiots claiming that style of knee pad is utterly useless 'cos it will grip the dirt and slide down', despite the fact the soft conformable plastic slides quite easily and dirt/rocks will grip almost everything anyway... "here you go, here's a tiny steel plate to slide on and fix all your worries".

Its like people genuinely believe a company as prestigious and recognised as Dainese wouldn't actually test a product before release or something.

 So..... Does the steel knee capped pads paired with steel elbow capped pads as well? Asking for a friend.
  • 1 0
 Won’t the metal knee pads scuff up after a few crashes and develop sharp edges? Perfect for slicing through pants and ski
  • 1 0
 That's how they work. It's motivation to keep from crashing so your shiny knee pads stay looking nice.
  • 1 0
 I wonder if sparks will come off the steel covers on the Dainese knee pads when you crash? Could be cool? But fire risk????

 They blamed fires on MTBers before from pedal strikes, so Im sure it will happen again

 Can’t wait for the pink bike review of the next load of cycling gear from Aldi and Lidl. More my price range.

 The biggest question is how well do these go with Dental Scrubs?
