WHAT IT IS
When the DC moto team wanted to make a stronger presence in the motocross industry, they decided that they needed to have their own gear. So they enlisted the help of their sponsored athlete, Jeremy McGrath, as well as Troy Lee, to get the whole project rolling. What started as a one-off deal for MC eventually turned into a four-set collection featuring Robbie Maddison, Nate Adams, and Travis Pastrana. The MC and Maddo signature gear will hit stores worldwide at the end of 2012, however, the Adams and Pastrana line won’t drop until summer of 2013.
• Although the GP jersey isn’t ventilated like the SE PRO, it’s lightweight enough for almost all weather conditions.
• The jersey is exceptionally comfortable.
• The pant is one of the best fitting on the market. From the crotch to the knees, nothing ever felt too constrictive, and it had the perfect snug fit.
• Pant always stayed in place — even with a simple Velcro and button snap closure system.
• Both the jersey and pant are extremely durable.
• Having limited edition gear is always cool.
• Waist sizing and cinch straps don’t match up very well on some sets of pants.
• Graphics don’t line up at seams on some jerseys and pants.
When we first saw McGrath and Maddison rocking custom DC gear a few months ago, we have to admit that we were a little envious. However, we no longer have to be because DC and Troy Lee Designs have released this four-rider signature gear to the public.
