Check out this short vid of Tineli Trail gear in action...

Tineli performance bike wear has its roots firmly placed in my hometown of Nelson. I have many fond memories of trying to hold on to Tineli founder Tim Vincent's back wheel at the Tuesday night world Champs, now Tim builds some of the best road cycling gear in the industry. 

The Tineli trail short and shirt have no road heritage and all enduro type style and function. The trail shirt is the first T-shirt style riding shirt I've worn and I don't think I'll be going back. Good quality quick drying fabric keeps the sweat evaporating nicely. High vis colour was also a new one for me, gotta be seen to be safe!



A lot of bike 'baggies' have abysmal fasteners but not Tineli, 2 solid domes and a steel hook and heaps of adjustability with an elastic waistline. 2 easy access pockets and a mesh rear hip zone for ventilation. These are my new favourite biking shorts.
