It used to be hard finding riding gear I liked. Fortunately, thanks to companies like Shredly, Maloja, Zoic, Sombrio and for 2015, Troy Lee Designs, my most difficult decisions are based on what colors I feel like wearing.
I am particularly fond of the Troy Lee Designs Skyline long sleeve jersey in camo/turquoise. It features turquoise camo colored sleeves and a solid white chest and back with a coral accent at the neck. Coral and turquoise happens to be one of my favorite color combinations; especially when I am sporting a summer tan. Generally I’m not a fan of long sleeve jerseys (I prefer 3/4 length sleeves due to elbow pad compatibility), but I like the Skyline and its flattering slim fit. Plus it breathes well, even on warmer days.
Once you find a pair of shorts that fits well, adding a second or third pair in additional colors is the next step to a wardrobe of dialed riding kits. As I’ve mentioned many times in my previous Style Checks, (besides functionality and durability) fit for me is ultimately the deciding factor when it comes to buying. The 2015 women’s Skyline Shorts have been a great addition to my selection of riding gear.
The updated cut accentuates curves without constricting movement, and the style continues to hold true to their motif; bold and bright color palettes and graphics.
Made with a polyester/spandex blend, these lightweight 2 way stretch shorts feature a lycra fly opening, zipper front and cargo pockets, and a ribbed spandex front stretch panel. TLD offers a lightweight mesh polyester long sleeve and short sleeve v-neck jersey option for the coral shorts.
The short sleeve colorblock jersey features solid purple sleeves and back, a side strip of light gray animal print and a solid white chest. I like the coral accent strip on the back collar of both jerseys that ties in the shorts.
This is a perfect kit for warmer dry conditions, as it goes without saying I avoid wearing white in bad weather, as its difficult to clean!
