Troy Lee Designs is a brand that's steeped in mountain bike history, and judging by their latest collection, 2014 should be another good year for the Californian brand.
For the 2014 range, the team at Troy Lee Designs has launched a new ‘category symbol system’, which essentially means that the company has tailored their range to suit the specific needs of different riders, whether it's cross-country, all-mountain or gravity.
Sprint – for gravity riding
The Sprint range is Troy Lee’s premium gravity riding gear. It features all-new bicycle-specific race pants, designed with an anatomical build for cycling and lightweight materials. They're available in four colourways with a matching jersey and all-new lightweight shorts.

Ruckus – for all-mountain riding
Back for 2014, the Ruckus line is designed for the rigours of all-mountain riding. New features for 2014 include a phone pocket and more robust design for the shorts, while the jersey has a more tailored fit.
