MBA Kit of the Month

For this month’s kit we’re featuring riding gear from Troy Lee Designs. Back in 1981 Troy Lee quickly gained recognition in the motocross realm for his helmet painting skills, which would later allow him to grow his company into one of the largest privately owned action sports apparel and gear companies in the world. TLD is widely recognized in the motorsports arena, and while that seems to be the company’s main focus, its cycling division is far from a side project. In fact, TLD offers some of the best products for serious mountain bikers. We gathered up a few items from TLD to showcase the brand’s latest cycling gear, designed for the world’s fastest racers.

Helmet: TLD A2 MIPS—$140

Glasses: Tifosi Davos —$70

Jersey: TLD Skyline Air—$48

Shorts: TLD Skyline Air—$80

Gloves: TLD Sprint—$28

Socks: Sock Guy Peace USA—$13

Shoes: Bontrager Flatline—$130
