Terry boldly holds the title of the original women’s cycling company, and with that come big shoes and an even greater purpose to fulfill. We’re constantly developing, enhancing and refining our products so that we can act on our mission to help all women ride comfortably, confidently, and beautifully. We’re also guided by the goal of improving the riding experience for all levels of cyclists, not just to sell products, but because we truly believe in the transformational power of the bike. We are real women designing, riding, and testing our products – and our limits – to offer the best gear in the industry.
So far, 2023 has led to the introduction of 13 new styles, designed to fill major gaps in the market, extend our plus-size options, and promote the use of more sustainable fabrics, while remaining true to our fun and feminine roots. Our focus has always been ladies first, but we even have something for the dudes this Spring. Here are our top innovations of Spring 2023.
A combination of high compression fabrics and our all-new Flex Air Max chamois define the Long Haul Short. The goal for this bottom was to design a lightweight performance-level short that would be up for the challenge of centuries, high heat situations, international touring and gravel riding. This was achieved with our new multi-density Flex Air Max Chamois that adds a higher degree of long term comfort without bulk, and a higher compression 6-panel fit that increases support and reduces muscle fatigue. Minimally constructed front waist panels and laser-cut leg openings held in place with a stitchless, silicone-free 10mm gripper provide a friction-free experience for long-lasting comfort. A nicely integrated smartphone pocket with a bonded edge allows for quick access to essentials. The Long Haul Short is also sustainably made in a green-energy certified sewing facility in the USA.
Like its predecessor the Grand Tour Short, the Grand Tour Knicker provides serious riders with the support needed to pursue long distances, coarse terrain, a variety of temperatures, or any combination thereof—now in an extended 18.5 inch inseam. It is outfitted with features like touring pockets and our Flex Air Tour Chamois with a high level of padding, soft wing technology and perforated foam for breathability. It’s also made of Polartec’s tri-blend Powerstretch fabric which is fast drying, moderately compressive, and soft next to the skin. Designed with all-day comfort in mind, the waistband is elastic free and bonded to reduce seaming against the front waist. The leg bands, too, are designed without a high degree of restriction, instead using stitchless hypoallergenic gripper tape on the inside of the leg hem to keep things gently in place.
Our best-selling Breakaway line of silky, lightweight, performance bottoms has expanded for 2023 with new higher rise and visibility options. Both the Breakaway LTD Short and Breakaway Hi-Rise Short are USA-made out of a moderately compressive fabric and have the same sculpted paneling, flat seam construction and list of features as the original Breakaway Short (a Bicycling magazine Editor’s Choice designee). The Breakaway Hi-Rise has a higher rise and wider, elastic-free comfort waistband that extends the torso coverage an extra 2 inches for increased core support. The limited-edition Breakaway adds wrap-around high viz inserts to an area of the body that makes a difference when it’s in motion for increased rider safety. Both feature an 8.5 inch inseam.
A runaway hit when we first introduced it, the Bike Bermuda is now available in navy as well as classic black. The Bike Bermuda combines all the best things about Bermuda shorts (high rise, long length, leg pocket and grip-free hem) with all the best things about Terry’s Breakaway Shorts (silky fabric, sculpted panels, Fleet Air Chamois). It’s great for all levels and all types of cycling.
Field tested on an Italian bike tour and Montana singletrack, the goal of our new Rover Short was to provide women with a longer length, 2-piece short/padded liner combination that can be easily pulled on and comfortably worn on or off the bike. An alternative to the spandex sector of cycling, it’s made of a recycled stretch woven polyester, has an easy-fit, printed mesh waistband, and 2 front zippered pockets to secure essentials. The longer-than-average 13 inch inseam provides excellent coverage while the diamond gusseting allows for full freedom of movement. Included is our Universal Liner with lightweight Urban Chamois, ideal for spending 1-2 hours continuously in the saddle. The Universal Liner is detachable making this bottom an excellent option for biking, hiking, and travel.
We designed the Vista Skort to be comfortably wearable in high heat conditions and on off-road terrain. It is made of lightweight, abrasion-resistant, recycled stretch woven nylon, and features a 4-way stretch waistband for added comfort and a secure but accommodating fit. The integrated liner short is built with our ultra-breathable and ventilating Fleet Air Lite chamois, and comes attached to the overskort to prevent the garment from shifting while riding. The outer skirt has a mobility-friendly overlap construction for easy pedaling and has an attractive, printed wrap-around yoke for added flare.
The Aria 8 Inch headlines our array of performance liners this season and combines greater coverage with our Italian-made Fleet Air Chamois to support longer intervals of riding. The seamless Fleet Air chamois utilizes soft-wing construction to reduce bulk and prevent chafing as well as multi-level foam padding that’s perforated for superior ventilation. The new 8 inch inseam hits at mid-thigh, making it ideal for pairing with longer overshorts and skirts. The comfortable fit, breathable fabrication and signature stretch lace leg bands, remain true to our original best-selling 6.5 inch Aria liner.
Two of our best-selling, high rise bottoms—The Holster Hi-Rise Short and Holster Hi-Rise Capri—are now available in sizes XS-3X. Well-suited for longer distances, both feature an ultra-wide, contoured, extra high waistband and moderately compressive fabrication to reduce muscle fatigue and increase circulation. Engineered with deep, stretchy, perforated pockets for quick, convenient access and the all-day comfort Flex Air chamois, the Holster Hi Rise Short and Capri join our inclusive collection of tops and bottoms for plus size riders. The Holster Hi Rise Short has an 8.5 inch inseam and the mid-calf length Holster Hi Rise Capri has an 18.5 inch inseam, priming it for multi-season wear.
Top It Off
The all-new Rover Top was built to meet the growing demand for active apparel that can cycle through all aspects of life. Joining our versatile collection of multi-sport apparel, the ultra-comfortable Rover 3/4 combines moisture-wicking performance fabric with buttery softness and signature graphics. V-neckline and raglan sleeves were designed for comfort on the bike—and everywhere else. The semi-fitted silhouette, hidden zippered pocket, and rear reflective piping make the Rover 3/4 Sleeve Top ideal for casual rides, travel, and recreational wear.
Fully featured for life on or off the bike, the Tech Tank has been one of our most wearable tops since its inaugural debut. Now available in sizes XS-3X, this tank offers more coverage than standard sleeveless tops with a simply styled crew neckline and a curve-flattering relaxed fit. Made from softly heathered performance fabric, the Tech Tank Plus is highly moisture wicking to keep its wearer cool, dry, and comfortable, no matter what. This savvy tank features a single rear patch pocket with a flap and the facade is finished with our upbeat custom graphics. The Tech Tank Plus further curates our collection of tops and bottoms for plus size riders and is a great option for women who are new to cycling or simply prefer a more casual approach.
On our maiden voyage into Men’s cycling wear, we have launched the highly anticipated Men’s Soleil Long Sleeve Top as part of our SolMate line – a mini collection of companion prints for cycling couples. Our Soleil tops have redefined what cycling tops can be for women and as of 2023, men are also invited to discover the Terry difference. Ultralight, yet totally sun protective; minimally seamed but technically proficient for all-day riding; intended for cyclists but fit for real bodies and active pursuits on and off the bike. The Soleil fabric is made of a very light micropoly/spandex that can be worn in every climate and provides UPF 50+ coverage, wicks away moisture, feels cool against the skin and has anti-odor properties that will keep riders more comfortable, for longer. The Men’s Soleil Long Sleeve is outfitted with three rear pockets and a semi-fitted shape to move without restriction. On the Women’s side of the SolMates power coupling is our #1 selling Soleil Flow Long Sleeve Top. As with all our Soleil Flows, the limited-edition SolMate version features UPF 50+ coverage, three open rear pockets, and a relaxed silhouette through the waist and hips.
