Even Krankier: New Krank Dirtwear

Just got sent details of some new jerseys from top New Zealand based MTB clothing shop Krank Dirtwear. I am really liking their use of bold colours and their designs are different to the usual BIG LOGOS plastered on every available surface of a garment. These two jerseys are a perfect example of their designs:

Its great to see on their site that they have women riders in mind, “Noticing that the lady mountain bike riders weren’t getting a fair deal with their mountainbike clothes we decided to design all of our ladies MTB clothes to suit their distinctive shape from XS right through to WXL we cater for all…”. As a stupidly-tiny 4′ 11″ rider, I have had to wear my fair share of lumpy misshapen jerseys that bulge out in all the wrong places. Non-sporty clothes are designed for women-shaped bodies, so why not sports clothes (its a no-brainer!).

Also, if you in the mood for scaring the bejasus out of your opponent check out the back of this custom jersey they’ve designed:

Kiwi Threads: Krank Dirtwear

Krank Dirtwear (www.krankdirtwear.com) are a New Zealand based mtb gear site I stumbled upon. They focus on the more minimal designs and primary colours, great for those of us who prefer less graphics.  I really liked the look of their 2009 Miscela jersey which comes in four bright colours and three back pockets. At e62.00 it is steep enough for a jersey, especially if you count in shipping from New Zealand, but they do sizes from XS to XXL which is always a plus point: (Edit: Just noticed that shipping to Europe is only NZ$25 – only €11 ! A steal!)
