Dakine expands its Thrillium collection for spring 2019

Dakine has expanded its gravity-focused Thrillium collection for spring 2019.

The updated Thrillium Jersey has a “softer hand feel and looser fit”, the brand has said, and is built with a heavier, more durable stretch mesh of bluesign-approved materials. Polygiene odour control technology allows for extended wear “without the stench”. It has four-way stretch construction, is available in long and short sleeves and the cut crew neck, drop rear hem and raglan sleeves offer “functional style and comfort”. It also includes a hidden interior sunglasses wipe.

Paired with the jersey, the all new Thrillium Pant or Thrillium Short offer a “highly technical kit for downhill riding”. They are built with Schoeller’s ecorepel Bio, a bluesign-approved four-way stretch woven with PFC-free DWR. Both offer a “ventilated laser perforated waist and inner thigh for maximum airflow”. There are also zippered hand and thigh pockets, a camlock buckle, a deep shank button fly and double stitch construction. The Thrillium Pant includes flex zones in the knees, positioned to move when worn over pads.

The minimalist Thrillium Glove complements the kit, the brand has said. It is built with a lightweight, moisture wicking, four-way stretch shell construction with Polygiene odour control technology. Durable, tactile Pittards goat leather palm provides “comfort and maximum connection to the handlebars”. It also has slip-on cuff.

The Thrillium Jersey and Thrillium Glove are offered in Team Aggy colourways, signature models for team rider, Graham Agassiz. The Thrillium Collection, and all of Dakine’s MTB offerings, will be available at select retailers and online from April 2019.
