The leather knee panels are reinforced with Kevlar stitching.

WHAT WE LIKED:
-Comfortable fit on both jersey and pants
-Rear yoke/panel on back of pants helps the pants move with you
-Leather knee panels are very durable
-Partially vented jersey, as well as vented panels on pants, helps to keep you cool while riding
-New colorways are very appealing
-No padding on the palms of gloves help to keep them feeling comfortable. Most of our test riders prefer this when it comes to gloves
-It depends on the rider, but these pants stay in place very well

The gloves are very comfortable.

The gloves are very comfortable.

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE:
-Some testers felt that the waist was cut a little low on the pants
-Pants fit a little small so be sure to try them on before purchasing

WHAT WE REALLY THINK: It goes without saying that Thor is one of the leaders in the gear market, and after testing the 2011 gear, there is no sign of the company slowing down any time soon. The pants, jersey, and gloves all fit comfortably and have proven to withstand our abuse so far. The partially vented design of this gear also helps add to the appeal, and when combined with some creative, yet clean colorways, this gear a must-have for nearly any serious rider.
