SIA 2014 Day 2: wrapping up the best of the best in style & tech for 2015 [Gallery]

Shred/Slytech

Slytech has got the protection business dialed. Boasting their patented Second Skin foam, Slytech’s back guards are both the most comfortable and the safest protectors on the market. Light, low profile, and rider tested, these are your go-to guys for back support. Ever the innovators, Slytech has now infused this same impact absorbing tech into their Shred helmets. A honeycomb pattern of Second Skin foam is implanted directly into the liner of Shred’s helmets, created to spread out the force of an impact and reduce the risk of serious head injury. Shred has also expanded both its goggle and sunglass lines, creating styles within both categories that complement one another. The highlights of the goggle line, the Stupefy and the Smartefy, are both created with Shred’s No BS Quick Change system, which simply allows for any lens to slip into the divot running along the inside of the goggle’s malleable frame. Simple, without any unnecessary gadgets or gizmos; no BS. One of the highlights of Shred’s 2015 product lineup is a collab with Waves for Water, a non-profit group that works to bring clean water to any and all who need it. A pair of sunnies dubbed The Belushki Rollerwood, and the Smartefy Roller goggles are the result of a joint effort by the brand and Waves for Water, branded gear that helps spread the word about an awesome cause.

DC

DC is making big moves in the boot department for the coming season, with two new models headlining the collection. An unsurprising highlight is Travis Rice’s pro model boot, with an enhanced heat retaining lining, and a super stiff upper body. DC has also created a collab boot — and mountain shoe— with the snow building masters over at STP.

Additionally, DC has debuted their new City Series, a line of street-inspired jackets, lighterweight and perfect for warmer days, on hill or off.
