Whether you’re on the road or on the trail, the clothing you choose has got to do more than just look good. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for apparel that goes the extra mile with hidden details, exceptional cut, and technical fabrics. Here are some head-turning threads spotted at the Sea Otter Classic that could be a welcome addition to your next ride.
On The Trail Clothing
Race Face Stash Tank
Sometimes a pack feels like overkill if you’re only going out for a little while. That’s why companies such as Race Face have come up with solutions you can wear under your riding clothes to carry everything you need without the bulk. RaceFace’s Stash Tank can hold up to a 1.5-liter hydration pack and boasts three unfixed cargo pockets for tools and snacks. They’re free to move with you, and fit over your shorts if needed.

Sombrio Silhouette Riding Shirt
We like this women’s button up for its casual appearance, and love it for its hidden features. Red plaid is timeless and always makes a statement, especially in custom stretch fabric. Sombrio backs up the Silhouette Riding Shirt with features like reinforced elbows and snaps, vented underarms, and a hidden stash pouch in the rear that just happens to be big enough to fit a can of … Coke.

Troy Lee Designs Skyline Short Speeda Flo
The Troy Lee Designs Speeda collection gives expensive feel at an affordable price. Get a perfect fit with micro adjusters at the hips, and bring these out for a day on the lifts, or pedaling XC. If neon cheetah print isn’t your thing, don’t worry, you can get the same great fit and performance in more subdued hues as well.
