Introducing X Mountain Bike Company’s 2010 Women’s Line
“Badass” hardly sums it up. Today’s female shredders are leading the pack along twisted singletrack and down gnarly dh lines. We don’t want hand-me-downs from the guys, because we don’t need a hand-up to the trailhead. X’s two-year-old women’s clothing and armor line taps that independent attitude, and infuses it with a fashion-forward mantra. With designs engineered for a woman’s figure and styles that complement her personality, our female riders take “technical” to a whole new level.

X’s Women’s DIY All-Mountain Short
When the entire mountain is yours to conquer and pedaling up just means earning the rewards of going down, the DIY short never stops you in your tracks. With comfort elements, like its soft-brushed tricot inner waistband, and an ultra light weight—all fused into a casual but chic design, the DIY short turns all-mountain pursuits into hard-charging all-day joyrides.

Because it means keeping the inner-core toasty to keep the hardcore chasing fresh pow, X’s baselayer incorporates a micro-polar fleece liner to capture all that hard-earned heat. When the scenery captures your heart, it’s just another way to keep the soul stoked from the inside out.

Hiking Jersey
When the heat and humidity are in cahoots and you’re three days to the next supply station, X’s hiking jersey is a comforting companion. Wicking away stink and sweat, and ushering in that sweet breeze through its microfibers, the hiking jersey keeps you cool and collected on the long journey. On cold mornings it serves as a baselayer that traps in a reassuring warmth necessary to highland trekking. A backpacking essential, the hiking jersey weighs a mere 5.0 oz, never stealing your attention away from the surrounding scenery.
