KLIM is continuing the legacy of rugged, technical off-road apparel with their Racer Support Program and new colors in Dakar, Mojave and XC Lite gear. Engineered by experience in the Rocky Mountains, the deserts and enduro courses, this gear offers durability and functionality that riders have grown to trust.

As off-road racing series heat up across the country, KLIM is proud to help out competitive riders with their Racer Support Program. Off-road racers with at least a year of experience are encouraged to apply for gear support in their race efforts. The program is meant to help ease the financial burden of racing for privateers who meet the qualifications of the program. 

KLIM off-road gear is equipment designed specifically to give riders the tools they need to have the best experience possible, no matter the conditions. To achieve that goal, these sets of off-road gear all feature unique material layouts for different levels of mobility, ventilation and durability.


The Dakar series gear is a blend of durability and airflow, featuring massive adjustable vents on the pant legs in addition to multiple stretch panels, leather overlays, and heavy duty 840D Cordura in key areas. The Dakar Jersey, with tough sleeves and a lightweight body, is equally focused on durability while still maintaining good airflow for off-road riding.

COLORS: Tan, Red, Orange - Blue, Dark Gray, Blue, Lime Blue

PRICING: Jersey MSRP $64.99, ITB Pants MSRP $189.99, Pants MSRP $209.99


The Mojave series pushes the balance towards airflow while maintaining durability, with pants featuring the same key materials as in the Dakar Pant, but with fully open mesh panels for full-time airflow in hot weather. The Mojave Jersey also features a more open mesh body material for more airflow than the Dakar. 

COLORS: Light Gray, Desert Tan, Skydiver Blue, Orange - Gray 

PRICING: Jersey MSRP $59.99, ITB Pants MSRP $169.99, Pants MSRP $199.99


Topping the charts for mobility is the XC Lite series. Engineered with the aggressive trail rider and racer in mind, the XC Lite series puts extra focus on comfort in extremely demanding conditions, where airflow, moisture-wicking materials, and highly flexible fabrics can make or break the experience. Still, durability isn’t pushed aside with leather overlays and durable fabrics in high wear areas.

COLORS: Red - Blue, Purple, Orange - Blue, Green, Black - White

PRICING: Jersey MSRP $39.99, Pants MSRP $129.99

Wherever you ride, and whatever you ride, KLIM has your entire season of trail riding, racing and dual-sport riding covered. Privateers and amateur racers alike are also encouraged to apply for the KLIM Racer Support Program.
