UPDATE: We can tell many of you really wanted the Royal kit, with record numbers turning out to vote. As the dust settles and we tally the slips, Vitor Freitas smashing a berm on an old clapped out steed was the clear favorite, and Vital member andy.nelson.92317 will be stoked to learn he was the lucky voter. Photographer Antonio Abreu and Andy will each receive the super rad a head to toe outfit from Royal Racing!
Royal's race kit has been engineered using advanced fabrics to enable superior venting and performance with minimum drag and very light weights (195 grams only for the jersey!) The race short features a pedal friendly cut that makes it an easy choice for DH and Enduro racing alike, and offers all-day comfort to stay on when the racing is done too. The all new lightweight yet robust Quantum is the perfect 3 season trail riding glove - all you need, nothing you don't. The Quantum is the glove of choice of the Trek World Racing DH and Enduro team, currently being put through a full season of race testing and already being seen on podiums world wide. To finish off this perfect kit, Royal's Crew socks are ideal for long days in the dirt. The Crew features Cool Max’s Cotton Poly mix Dri-Release, designed to pull perspiration off your skin and help it evaporate. This way, your skin is drier and less likely to chafe, or blister.
And now all that's left for our winners to worry about is what color to go for!
