Well it’s time to share some exciting things we have been working on at Divas SnowGear for the 2016 season. I have been working with DSG to develop high end ladies technical mountain riding gear. AVID TECHNICAL with Polartec NeoShell!! We have had this gear on a few riders and myself testing this season and I am more then impressed at the outcome of the quality of the Avid. I know the riders who have been testing for us and I know they are hard on gear so this is very exciting to see the durability of the new Avid. Low snow conditions pushed us into the trees and technical riding more and more this season so I’ve had my fair share of tree hugs and loves and the sled has the marks to prove it….the gear does NOT and I couldn’t be more pumped. So many exciting things are happening at DSG and I’m stoked to share them. If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to do so on here or pm me. Below are the technical features and explanation of the materials we are using this coming season…POLARTEC NEOSHELL…a FIRST in the snowmobile market. Yeah Buddy!!

The Polartec Neo shell is made up of an abrasion resistant face, exclusive sub-micron fiber membrane significantly increases moisture vapor transfer over solid membrane technology, and a soft inner layer. The fabric has a stretch for active comfortable a hard shell that feels like a soft shell and is lightweight. The more you move, the more air is exchanged.
What is Avid Technical with Polartec NeoShell? Avid Technical by DSG is a non-insulated shell jacket and pant offering superior breathability and waterproofing in the toughest climates. Offering four jacket and pant colors with 16 different color combinations with a women’s-specific design and cut.
