Park City, UT — DESTROYER, a brand created in 2010 out of a need to promote individuality and progression, was originally known for making skate-inspired products. Now they bring that skate culture and aesthetic to the mountain biking world. All of their gear comes from a need for equipment with a style that simply did not exist.
The Sitkum Jacket and Empire Pant are their newest models and are certainly among the most innovative mountain bike garments on the market. Both products protect the rider from the elements and from potential injuries without compromising that signature DESTROYER style.
The Sitkum Jacket utilizes 4-way-stretch fabric that allows you to move around on the bike without getting tight or snagging. It’s waterproof/breathability rated at 10K/10K. The jacket also boasts waterproof two-way zippers and a hood large enough to go over your helmet. In the back, you’ll find a stash pocket for a snack and in the pits and zips to keep you cool. Looking good is one thing but being safe is another, which is why the jacket has pockets in which to secure the soft armor on your spine and elbows.
The Empire pant shows the same attention to detail as the jacket and shares the 10k waterproof/breathability rating. The details aimed at riders are evident from the use of 4-way-stretch material, gusseted crotch, articulated knees, and zipped legs that allow easy on and off over pads. The Empire Pant is designed and built by riders for riders.
