Dakine Announces 'Team Aggy Series' Downhill Gear - Pinkbike
PRESS RELEASE: DakineMotivated by the descent, we design our MTB gear for those who appreciate the pull of gravity. Few personify this passion more than Graham “Aggy” Agassiz, who has built a solid reputation as one of the world’s premier mountain bikers, with his signature fast and loose style that captivates fans around the globe. With his all or nothing approach, Aggy needs trusted, durable gear to support his passion for riding and to continue his successful career. In co-creation with Dakine, the Team Aggy series of downhill gear launches today for Spring/Summer 2019. Emblazoned with symbolic imagery that holds heart for Aggy, the updated Thrillium Jersey (MSRP $60-65), - available in long and short sleeve versions - has a softer hand feel, looser fit, and a heavier, more durable stretch mesh construction of bluesign®-approved materials. Working with our design team to create his ultimate dream kit, Aggy requested incorporating wolf fur into the design, which raised more than a few eyebrows. “For the last decade or more the wolf has been my sort of spirit animal if you will; the mythology and symbolism behind the creature reflects a lot of different characteristics that I’ve embodied into my day to day life,” said Aggy. The concept-to-creation was a winner for Aggy and the design team, further embellished with a custom logo featuring a bearded skull with a wolf head howling at the moon that is used on all the Team Aggy pieces. The back shoulder of each jersey also features a bony “Shaka” hand, paying homage to Dakine’s roots, and Aggy’s signature phrase, “Whatever Dude”.
The Aggy Series and all of Dakine’s MTB offerings are available at select retailers and online at dakine.comMENTIONS: @dakine
