I really like the new collection of Dakine for 2010. They have some good new stuff at Eurobike 2009. Especially the Girls Collection!
There are Shorts for “All Mountain Biking” and Shorts for “Freeride Biking”. My Favorites are the Freeride one “Mode Short”, they have some cute details like the removable recoil pass pocket or the side waist tab adjustments.. wondering how they would fit with my crash pants.
I also like the Back Packs, there are two new models “Girls AMP 18L and 12L, specifically designed to fit a girl’s frame. Those two models are good for Bike Tours. All Packs have this new molded back panel with Air Channel Ventilation. I was given a new Girls Drafter Pack yesterday. Looking forward to take them on my next Biking Trip.
If you are going with your bike to work, I would recommend the new “COMMUTER BAG”, equipped with a padded laptop sleeve (fits most 15” laptops), a tarp lined shoe pocket and of course an expandable helmet pocket. I definitely like to have one of these Bags.
