When you hit the trails there are a few things we like to have sorted, our nutrition, our bike and our kit. Brakes Wide Open took a good hard look at some killer kit by local emerging brand ‘We The Riders’ recently and we were suitably impressed.
We the Riders is a local Gold Coast company that emerged in 2017 after being born from a friendship of two local riders. By riders for riders is certainly the mantra at We the Riders, with every bit of kit being tested by the team before being made available to the public. Local artists are used to create distinctive t-shirt designs and the brand supports local ride location NV Gravity Bike Park.
With a focus on ‘Good time on two wheels’, We the Riders are moving in the right direction with some quality kit. Brakes Wide Open took an in focus look at their ‘Enduro Elite’ jersey and put it through its paces on the trail.
Enduro Elite Jersey
The first thing you notice about the Enduro Elite Jersey is how lightweight it is and the remarkable breath-ability. Built for the hot Australian sun, this jersey has had a lot of thought put into it. The rear paneling and sides of the jersey are filled with ventilation holes that allow your hot sweaty back some reprieve, as you put the rubber through its paces on the trail.
The styling is quite unique with a perfect blend of simplicity mixed with a dash of modern flare. Don’t get me wrong this jersey isn’t Cinderella’s dress at the ball, but it looks the goods and oozes style on the trail. Available in two colour schemes orange / mist grey and black / storm grey and retailing at $74.95, the Enduro Elite jersey is a quality product for an affordable price.
When the rubber hits the dirt there is only one thing that matters with a jersey and that is performance. We found the Enduro Elite jersey to be cool, light weight, comfortable and practical. In hot weather it was as cool as a cucumber, the added bonus of a stash pocket big enough to fit a phone left us suitably impressed.
We the Riders are an emerging local brand that focuses on quality lifestyle wear, epic ride apparel and blockbuster jerseys. We couldn’t have been more impressed by the ‘Enduro Elite’ jersey and urge you to jump online at www.wetheriders.com to pick one up.
