YT Industries has launched its first ever line of technical apparel, which it describes as “best worn with a pound of dirt”. The unisex range of jerseys consists of 11 different styles, with a S-XXL size range and ‘standard fitting’, and will no doubt be competing for space in our list of the best mountain bike jerseys.
Franziska Stich, Softgoods & Accessories Manager at YT, said: “We are stoked to announce the highly anticipated YT Performance Wear to our YT fan base and customers! For the first time YT Industries will enter the technical performance apparel market. We are offering a selected range of high quality, functional jerseys in cool YT designs at fantastic price points. Our campaign ‘Wear your heart on your sleeve’ embodies our riders' emotions and commitment to mountain biking. This mantra was also reflected in how we created the product line. From careful material selection, in-depth design process and rigorous field testing we developed a product line that is 100 percent committed to the YT family.”
The new range includes Asym, Crooked and Mid Logo Jerseys, which YT predicts will become staples in many riders’ wardrobe. All of them are made from 100 percent polyester for a soft and cooling feel, and they’re designed to be versatile, comfortable and strong, while providing a casual aesthetic. They’re offered in six different styles, and three different designs, and feature an integrated eyewear wipe and drop tailback. There are two long-sleeve designs in four colorways, and one short-sleeve design with two color options.
In addition to these, there’s the Tech Jersey: similar in form but different in function. They are made from 81% polyester, 14% cotton, and 5% elastane, and are equipped with Drirelease: an in-fabric technology (as opposed to surface applications) that blends high-wicking and fast-drying fibers into the weave of the material. These are said to release moisture and dry up to four times faster than other cotton materials. The Tech Jerseys come in three long-sleeve designs with separate graphics and colorways, as well as two short-sleeve designs. Similarly to the other jerseys, they too feature an eyewear wipe and drop tailback.
