Specialized Women's Trail Air Short Sleeve Jersey
The Women's Trail Air Short Sleeve Jersey is made of a soft and ridiculously light fabric that Specialized says also breathes extremely well. Unlike the tank top you may reach for on hot days, the Deflect UV 30 material it's made of will protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. It's much easier to apply sunscreen to exposed areas when you're wearing a T-shirt! The crew collar is casual and the women's specific regular mountain bike fit is generous and comfortable.
Colours: Spruce, Black, Sky Blue. Sizes XS to XXL. MSRP: $70 USD. More info: specialized.com
Specialized Trail Pant
Specialized's new riding pants are made of a stretchy fabric that's lighter and more breathable than the fabric used on their Demo pants. The pants have three zippered pockets, a buckle waist for easy adjustments, laser perforated venting on the inner thigh, and are made of a Deflect UV 50+ material.
The Trail Pant is actually a unisex design, but Specialized offers it in a very wide size range, fitting everyone from smaller youth and female riders with their size 24 to big and tall riders with their size 44. The pant is form-fitting with a tapered leg so that there's no excess fabric to get stuck in your chain. If people want them to be roomier, they should size up.
Colours: Cast Umber, Black. Sizes: 24 - 44. MSRP: $135 USD. More info: specialized.com
