The Bontrager line is a clothing line that includes a smart, cute women’s line. Brand manager Natascha Grief showed us two separates; and Cadence Short with its flattering waist and minimalist chamois that makes it perfect for spin class.

Also, the Cadence Light Glove has Kona written all over it; save for the small sections of unpadded Pittards leather through the palm, the whole fingerless glove is comprised of a sheer, breathable mesh. For those who wear gloves on long rides, this $25 will be attractive.

In footwear, the $170 RXL Hilo Tri Shoe and RXL WSD mountain bike shoe ($229) are part of the ’10 line. Trek has been working with pro Julie Dibens on developing product, and has been providing her some cool one-off designs for test, as well as some unique graphics just for her, including a Pony design with the inscription on the medial arch “Not just a one-trick pony.”

Also of note: all Bontrager soft goods, from clothing to saddles, come with a 30-day unconditional guarantee. Don’t dig it? Return or exchange it, no questions.
