2024 Gravel Cycling Apparel Collection: Designs for Women & Men

Gravel has become one of the most popular, ever-growing disciplines in cycling. The freedom to explore new trails, ride on mixed terrain and get away from traffic are some of the reasons why gravel has become so popular among both beginner and seasoned cyclists. 

Having the right equipment is paramount to face the challenges of gravel riding. The bike and proper tires are crucial but so is cycling apparel. In fact, as we mentioned in a previous article, any jersey and bib shorts from our cycling collection are perfectly suitable for gravel cycling and vice versa. However, if garments are designed specifically for this discipline, using specific technologies, features and solutions, the performance is superior. That’s what you’ll find in the Siroko gravel apparel collection. Great news: the 2024 gravel line from Siroko now includes women’s garments plus some completely new styles:

GM2 gravel jerseys for women and men

Available in black and in green with gender-specific designs allowing for enhanced performance as well as great looks plus a slim fit design that reduces wind resistance and optimizes the power you put into pedaling.

This gravel cycling jersey is made of an ultralightweight, highly-resistant fabric, a blend of polyamide and elastane that provides durability, quick-drying properties, and keeps you cool and comfortable during your rides on dusty roads. Moreover, it features a UPF 50+ sun protection that shields you from harmful UV rays, allowing you to enjoy cycling outdoors safely and worry-free.

The 4-way stretch fabric structure ensures a snug and comfortable fit, allowing for an optimal ease of movement. A must-have for gravel cycling. Whether you’re climbing a steep hill or navigating uneven trails, this jersey moves with you, making sure nothing can get in the way of your performance.

With two large rear pockets and two side mesh pockets, this jersey offers plenty of room to safely carry all your essential items, from snacks and a cell phone, to tools and extra clothing such as vests, arm and leg warmers, gloves, etc.

Last but not least, let’s not forget about the details such as the heat-sealed hems on the sleeves that prevent chafing and add a touch of refinement to the design.

The waistband features an internal anti-slip silicone gripper, ensuring that the jersey stays in place at all times.

The high-quality SBS semi-automatic zipper makes it easy to adjust the garment and get extra ventilation according to each rider’s needs.

Invisible seams add to the aesthetic appeal of the jersey, but also increase comfort by eliminating potential chafing areas.

Technical Gravel T-shirts for women and men

If you don’t like tight-fitting garments, here are the ideal technical t-shirts to enjoy gravel in a loose fitting style, but without compromising comfort, lightness and performance. They are available in specific styles for women and men, and in short and long sleeve versions. Whether it’s hot summer days or cool spring and fall mornings, you have two options to choose from to best suit your needs.

They are made of Coolmax® fabric, a durable and stretchy blend of polyester and elastane with quick drying properties and great breathability. Microperforated panels are strategically placed on the sides and back to allow optimal moisture wicking to keep you fresh and prevent overheating. Naturally, the fabric features UPF 50+ sun protection to shield you from harmful UV rays so you can enjoy your rides with peace of mind and safety. Be sure to put sunscreen on your neck and, if you wear a short-sleeved shirt, also on your arms. 

They are loose-fitting T-shirts, with a regular fit design that provides comfort and ease of movement, perfect for those looking for a balance between performance and comfort. 

Finally, they are equipped with a zippered rear pocket, ideal for storing smaller essential items such as keys, cash, IDs and cards.

Cargo bib shorts and gravel shorts for women and men

The same bib shorts and baggy shorts that we talked about here but now also available for women with specific design and chamois (in bib shorts) in black and green color versions, the latter color being now added to the men’s collection. 

Let’s review the main features of the bib shorts:

  • Italian MITI fabric offers excellent quality with a durable and stretchy blend of polyamide and elastane. 
  • Multi-panel construction with compressive and micro-perforated areas provide a perfect fit and optimal ventilation to keep you comfortable and fresh.
  • Ultralightweight laser-cut shoulder straps and mesh fabric on the back improve breathability.
  • The Elastic Interface® chamois, namely the Terra model, with 80-70 kg/m³ mixed-density foam and specific design for women and men.
  • Handy rear and side pockets, made of mesh fabric, provide safe space to carry everything you want.
  • Flat seams reduce chafing and prevent skin irritation.
  • Elastic leg bands with inner silicone gripper ensure a secure fit.
  • Recommended for up to 10-hour rides.

And as for our baggy shorts:

  • Made with a blend of polyamide and elastane, combining the RipStop and 4-Way Stretch fabrics to offer resistance, durability and comfortable fit to meet the needs of your gravel rides.
  • Breathable, quick-drying fabric with mesh panels on the inner thighs to allow for moisture wicking.
  • Elastic waistband for a secure and comfortable fit, making the shorts stay in place during rides.
  • Storage-wise: two front pockets and one rear pocket with invisible SBS zipper. 
  • UPF 50+

These shorts do not come with a chamois, so you can wear them with or without cycling shorts underneath, depending on your needs. If you are going for a very long ride, we definitely recommend that you wear cargo bib shorts or any other of our wide range of bib shorts for the extra comfort of a good chamois. 

To wrap up the new arrivals in our gravel collection, there is a new cycling cap model in green color version to match with the rest of your equipment. Having a good time riding your bike comfortably is important, but it is also great to do it with style, making sure the clothes you’re wearing make you feel good, even if they get dirty and covered with mud later on. Don’t worry, that’s what gravel is all about and that’s what we had in mind when designing the collection: going out for a ride to have fun, cycling through puddles, getting your mouth full of dust on the trail and coming back home with a smile on your face and a desire for more.
