WHY ARE THESE OVERTROUSERS SUITABLE FOR URBAN CYCLISTS?
Men's cut designed to fit you when sat in the saddle.
The pre-shaped knees leave your legs free to move.
The high elasticated waistband with silicone bands sits snugly against your waist to protect your back.
The long, fitted hems won't catch the wind or get snagged on your bike.
These overtrousers have been designed to be slipped on over your normal trousers, so choose your usual size.
WHAT TESTS ARE CARRIED OUT TO ENSURE THE WATERPROOFNESS OF THE OVERTROUSERS?
These overtrousers have been approved following tests in a simulator that reproduce the conditions of a MODERATE RAIN SHOWER, which is the equivalent of 60 L/m2/h (60 mm/h of rainfall) for 2 hours. The fabric withstands a water column of 10,000 mm after 5 washes (= 10,000 Schmerber, the average water pressure exerted by water during a rain shower + test based on the ISO 811 standard). Fully taped seams.
WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE BREATHABILITY OF OUR OVERTROUSERS?
The hydrophilic membrane used limits condensation in the garment (RET<8 on most of the overtrousers and RET =<12 on the reinforced parts). To see whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric
12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric
RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric
OVERTROUSERS THAT ARE EASY TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF
Press-stud and zip at the waist.
3/4-length side opening with a waterproof zip.
Very quick and easy to put on whether sitting or standing and with any kind of shoe.
WHAT ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY?
The main areas that get rubbed - on the knees and bum - are reinforced with Neve fabric, which better stands up to friction.
This will make your overtrousers last much longer, so you can keep using them intensively for years and years.
FOR OPTIMAL PROTECTION
These overtrousers do not come with overshoes. For the very best protection, we recommend getting a pair of waterproof overshoes that will fully cover your foot. This will fully protect your legs and feet indefinitely, even in very wet conditions.
The two-way zip lets you open them from the top a little, in order to get additional "mechanical" ventilation
