When Fly Racing went to design these items for women, they asked riders what issues they had with their current apparel and what they wanted on the new Fly apparel. The feedback included wanting their shorts to sit securely on the hips and to be comfortable. For their jerseys, they wanted a pocket in the back, and nine out of ten were fans of the more feminine v-neck. The items shown here are what Fly came up with in response.
The Lilly jersey comes in a relaxed fit with a v-neck, dropped tail, well ventilated fabric, and features a double rear pocket with a quick access opening and a zippered opening.
The Action jersey is simple and has a side pocket with a sunglass wipe. Both the Lilly and Action jerseys come in black/pink and pink/turquoise colors.
The Lilly short also comes in black/pink and black/turquoise. There is a silicone gripper all around the waistband of the shorts as well as a pull cinch on either side. The cell phone pocket puts your device on the hip flexor, and is big enough for an iPhone 6. A removable Coolmax female specific chamois liner is also included. The women's specific cut of these shorts is narrow and we were warned they run a little small, FYI.
Large mesh vents on the back of the legs and cargo pockets.
Zippered vents on front of the shorts.
When Fly was designing the women's Kinetic gloves, they made the fingers narrower and the gloves smaller overall. If you are a fan of the rose print and ride downhill and/or moto, there are kits that share this design. All of these items are available on the Fly website.
