New TLD's like Christmas all over again!

Over the past couple of weeks my new Troy Lee Designs kit for the 2011 season has been showing up bit by bit; it's like Christmas all over again...and again, and again.  As more pieces roll in, I find my closet becoming overrun with bike gear, and am loving it!

The new race kit

TLD has once again outdone themselves with colours and designs that really pop...not to mention an ever growing women's line.  Some of my favorite additions this year, are the Skyline shorts and the women's moto shorts.  Troy Lee has also added some base layer pieces this year that are women specific and the new undershorts and chamois are amazing!
Women's Skyline Shorts...feels like you're wearing nothing at all!
There are some new additions on the protection front as well, and in my opinion these are some of the most comfortable and light weight pieces of any armour I've tried.  The boday armour is really great for anyone who also uses a Leatt brace, as the padding is removable so you can adjust where you need to to get a good fit.  I did find that the sizing was a bit larger than usual, so I ended up sizing down one-size in order to get a good fit.  Here's a look at some of the pieces.

This year I once again decided to go with the D3 carbon helmet to protect my most vital brain:)  A super light weight helmet with awesome graphics and of course amazing protection!
