Meet the new KLiM Carlsbad. It’s a no fuss adventure suit. Minimal, functional, light and an evolution of the Traverse suite that has been removed from the line-up. On paper it looks pretty close the perfect hardcore adventure suit; protective with a thin design for freedom of movement, good durability and external waterproofing with suitable venting and a decent set of colourways.

There isn’t much more opinion we can provide on the suit without a thorough testing. It looks great on paper and hopefully it’s an improvement on the already fantastic and well received predecessors. The KLiM Carlsbad retails at £635.00 for the jacket and £485.00 for the pants.

Full Press Release – 

The KLIM Carlsbad Adventure collection strips excess and emphasizes the essential needs of a well-traveled, big bike adventure rider. This is not a farkle-emblazoned showpiece. This isn’t conceptual or fashion-focused. This is function at its absolute core—engineered to perform at a high level, and capable of absolute adaptation to personal preference.

 

Engineered on a base of GORE-TEX® Performance Shell with substantial Cordura® rip stop exterior material, the new Carlsbad provides a streamlined fit that won’t weigh you down. A fully featured gear set with massive ventilation, ample cargo capacity, D3O armor systems and subdued, black 3M™ SCOTCHLITE™ reflective material accents.

 

Carlsbad is intended for riders who enjoy an active riding experience and require durable apparel for many years of use. Carlsbad delivers the perfect balance of premium features and minimal mindset to be a dependable partner as you chase the best miles in the world.
