The uninitiated may look at downhill racers and assume that, aside from a full-face and some body armor, DHers just throw on whatever T-Shirts they have laying around and point downhill. Not so. Good DH-specific apparel dials in just as much technical detailing as that which roadies or XC racers enjoy, and a great example of this is the Royal Racing Long-Sleeve Race Jersey. The Race jersey is made up of a various mesh polyester fabrics, each engineered for a specific purpose on the rider. Lighter and more breathable side mesh, as opposed to the still-light but tougher torso panels, helps to keep you cool on warmer days, and a pair of wrap-around sleeve vents help in this regard, too. Those same sleeves also host forearm padding to lessen lighter impacts, be them from falling, or branches, or maybe a bird or two. Who knows' You'll be going fast in this thing. The wide, low-profile neck is Leatt protection-friendly, and the tagless label at the back of it won't drive you nuts or derail your concentration mid-run. The Micro Lycra cuffs are taped for a comfortable and secure fit that won't shift around at speed, and the sublimated graphics won't fade from the sun, washing, impacts, or birds (again with the birds'). The Royal Racing Long-Sleeve Race Jersey is available in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in three colors schemes: Graphite/chartreuse, Blue/orange, and Black/white.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
