Following the release of the new helmets last week, Troy Lee Designs is stoked to announce the newest in all-mountain, gravity and cross-country riding apparel as well as premium protection. Last year TLD came out with complete renovations to nearly every item in the product line and 2015 continues to build on these successful products, with some fine tuning and a some new additions. An increase in offerings for the youth, women and more XC apparel has been added to the range. Here are a few highlights of our largest bicycle collection ever, for more details and info go to troyleedesigns website.SKYLINE
The Skyline collection is Troy Lee Designs' most popular selling riding kit, the world over. The classic all mountain kit has always been our mild kit, but with the addition of the "SPEEDA
" shorts you can kick up the vibrance a notch. NEW for 2015, is Youth Skyline
, available in 2 color ways of shorts and 2 jerseys. The biggest news in the Skyline lineup is the brand new Women's Skyline Short,
we enlisted World Champion and MTB hall of famer Leigh Donovan to help with the fit of this new short. We also added some long sleeve Skyline jerseys for the ladies, combined with new colors and patterns as well.

Ruckus was completely redesigned last season, with an all new fit on the jersey to be a bit more tailored, still using the popular 3/4 cut sleeve, and more breathable poly blend for the long day in the saddle. Same for the Ruckus short, our most full featured trail short that would be the short perfectly slated into the "E
" word genre, if we used that word. Some small hidden refinements in construction to the Ruckus short for '15 and it comes standard with the TLD premium inner liner, that is detachable of course, full waist adjusters, zipped front pocket, inner thigh ventilation zip ports, single snap waist enclosure with YKK zipper

Another long standing part of the TLD bike line up, that went through a total redesign in 2014, we rebuilt this kit from the ground up, including a new short and a completely new pant. It was so popular in early testing 2 years ago, we noticed most of our racers getting back into riding and racing in pants, due to the versatility of the pant, lightweight, incredible fit and durability. "I think it's cool to have so many riders getting back into pants, we have even tested these Sprint pants with our motocross team, and it has helped development with our moto line as well, our designers really listened to the athletes, I love wearing these pants"
said company founder, Troy Lee. Sprint kit is the default performance kit for the bike park, gravity racing, free riding, BMX and more, with the addition of more youth Sprint, we are looking after you groms too.

We'd be lying if we said we weren't nervous about last year's launch of the all new ACE collection, only because it was a bit of a departure for what TLD is known for. Those nerves certainly settled once the performance XC kit started making its way into dealers and onto customers. It won numerous gear shoot-outs and awards and quickly became a favourite for a new type of rider. For 2015 we continued with the new fit and construction of ACE, but we have added an extensive collection of lycra base layers to accompany the outer layers and are continuing to develop and test more pieces in this category.

• Ace shorts w/included liner short: MSRP $165
• Ace bib short: MSRP $110Ace base layers
• Ace arm warmer: MSRP $34
• Ace knee warmer: MSRP $34
• Ace base layer sleeveless: MSRP $32

• Ruckus jacket: MSRP $155

TLD 'Wheels' Collection
What is "Wheels
"? It is our casual ride gear. Probably in between an E-bike and Endur-bro rider category...It's a casual fit similar to board shorts and a tee, but more technical construction, that can take some riding abuse. Super comfortable riding apparel with a TLD sportswear twist.
Connect shorts: MSRP $65
Network jersey: MSRP $38

The TLD protection line has undergone a major overhaul, with five all new models being unveiled for this season, including the TBone-II
, a long awaited revision of TLD's first MTB specific knee guard. This will be very popular for the “E-word
” riding, since it's rugged enough to take a digger on the trail, light enough to throw in your pack and adjustable enough to fit any sized leg with the adjustable straps.Semenuk
: Long time TLD rider and 2x FMB World Tour Champion, Brandon Semenuk has wanted TLD to make an aggressive pad for dirt jumping, shuttle runs and freeriding for years, and Troy Lee Designs finally answered his requests and spent the last year developing this new pad. A CE certified impact cup is encased by a very subtle Semenuk themed (pics of his Mustang, newspaper headlines, etc
) abrasion resistant liner. They work great under pants - the guys have been racing and riding this guard with the new Sprint pants all winter and loving it
is an all-new take on the 2-part knee guard system TLD has offered in the past. A polyester mesh knee gasket that can be worn by itself on an easy ride, but throw on the bomb proof plastic shield, made of honeycomb polyethylene plastic and is CE certified.Panic:
Another completely new knee guard for 2015, this one is a 5-strap application and is a longer knee guard with great shin and knee protection, pre-curved guard for a fantastic fit, also CE certified.E-Lite elbow
. Another completely new guard, this one is a ergonomically designed ultra thin slip on elbow guard, using a lycra sleeve with a co-polymer pad exterior that also has memory foam to protect your elbows in a crash, or grazing a tree.
