Every serious downhill rider should wear appropriate riding gear and protection while riding on the mountain. These help to keep the rider safe since a ride can get dangerous and one fall could damage your bike, body or both. In the same way that this gear is intended to keep a rider safe, the right apparel is designed with the same mission. Once all of the essentials are packed up it’s time to get dressed, and that’s where Gravity Downhill comes in.
What Is Gravity Downhill?
Gravity is comprised of some of the best counter culture designers who have worked together to create comfortable, functional and just plain sick hats, t-shirts and hoodies that are ideal for downhill mountain bikers. Along with their current line, Gravity is also designing prototypes of other technical gear; for now though, let’s talk hoodies. The versatile hoodie was designed to keep a rider warm while maintaining their full range of motion. It is ideal for before, after and during a downhill or enduro session. Gravity has released two styles of hoodies to please the both the zip up and the pullover sweatshirt enthusiast. One features a metal zipper and the other option is just a regular pullover style hoodie, both are made with a 50% polyester and 50% cotton fleece Flex Fit fabric from American Apparel. Get the pullover in two colors and the zip up hoodie in just one color option.
The Original Hoodie
