Specialized has unveiled a brand new kit collection – Butter Gravity – in collaboration with four-time Elite DH World Champion Loïc Bruni. The new race-day kit is so named for its “buttery smooth taste of speed”, according to Spesh, and the pastel yellow kit will be debuted by Bruni at the Fort William World Cup this weekend (opens in new tab).
The race-focused Butter Gravity collection is, according to Specialized, designed for going faster with leading ventilation, movement, and durability. It consists of a race jersey, long-sleeve jersey, full-length pants, trail shorts, gloves, a beanie, socks and a short-sleeve tee. They’re all the color of the dairy product with which they share their name, but the good news for vegans and the lactose intolerant is that none of the garments contain actual butter.
Could this new collection comprise of some of the best mountain bike jerseys and best MTB pants? We'll let you know once we've tested it. In the meantime, here’s some more information on the Specialized x Loïc Bruni Butter Gravity collection.
