First look: All-new USWE Off-Road clothing collection
Hydration pack specialists USWE have branched out big time with a new off-road and enduro riding clothing range “designed with the needs of serious riders in mind” – two new line-ups developed over three years.
USWE is not mincing words in describing their new riding clothing: heavy-duty off-road protection, breathability, and “sure to kick-ass ride after ride”.
Remarkably it has been 16 years since USWE burst on the scene with their benchmark hydration packs for enduro, off-road and MTB riding. It seems about time they branched out a bit!
After teasing for almost a year now, the Swedish brand has now officially brought its first ever moto line developed for enduro and off-road riding onto the market.
In part developed, tested and dare we say beautifully modelled (!) by Eddie Karlsson, Enduro21 knows from experience that USWE products deliver on quality and function and we look forward to testing the gear in the near future.
The new USWE off-road clothing comes in two lines developed over three years: a lighter, quick-drying RÖK and the LERA which is a little more premium as they say, designed for even tougher enduro conditions.
In the meantime, here’s what they have to say about the new gear range in detail…
The LERA collection is designed with durability and function in mind. Made with high-quality materials that can withstand the toughest wear and tear.
Heavy-duty Off-Road jersey with ergonomically cut, abrasion resistant arms and shoulders for maximum protection and laser cut vents to allow extra airflow. Equipped with four-way stretch, mid-weight micro mesh body fabric with TPU vinyl logo detail.
Bonded hems make the jersey comfortable when tucked into the pants and finished off with a low-profile neck to avoid rubbing with neck braces. Sublimated open-eyelet mesh underarms and side body panels to maximize ventilation.
Heavy-duty Off-Road pant with pre-curved tailored to “race-fit” with a larger cut on the knees to accommodate knee pads or knee braces. It has full grain leather inner knee panels for protection and durability. The four-way stretch panels aid freedom of movement while the pants are protected from wear thanks to the rip stop nylon, high abrasion panels in the seat area.
Equipped with two secure zipped cargo pockets to bring your personal stuff such as phone and car keys, and two zippered vents for extra airflow for the leg.
Premium heavy-duty jacket with large, zippered vents which allow you to manage airflow you want on the fly or if you are running super-hot, plus just remove the sleeves to turn the jacket into a vest.

A bonded, fleece-lined body and sleeve retains and regulates heat while riding and extra abrasion resistant outer sleeves protect you from the undergrowth.
