First Look: Summer 2014 Specialized Mountain Bike Apparel

View as: Slideshow | One Page
Specialized’s apparel lineup is new and greatly improved for 2014. They’re offering gear targeted to different riders and riding styles, and should have something for everyone.

An in-house apparel lab allows them to create and test new designs for fit and fabric testing. What you see here is a culmination of a few years of hard work. Breathable VaporRize moisture transfer knit fabrics are used throughout the line, helping to wick moisture off the skin. DWR coating on the shorts helps to keep the elements at bay, as does the DeflectUV 30 (jerseys) and 50+ (shorts) when you’re in the sun.

SWAT Apparel




SWAT apparel allows you to ditch the pack and still carry the essentials. The concept is similar to the pockets on a road jersey, but lets you wear a more comfortable jersey. A snug compression fit makes it so your stored items don’t bounce around. SWAT bib shorts highlight the collection with two quad pockets and three back pockets that give quick access to anything you’re carrying. The back pockets are sewn into a flap that prevent your shorts from getting pulled down. Specialized’s Body Geometry chamois brings their road knowledge to MTB, but with a thinner, denser pad with less of a diaper feel. A full-length zip vest and men’s/women’s shorts are also offered for those not wanting the full bib.
