UNISEX CUT FOR ALL CYCLISTS
The built-in overshoes are guaranteed to protect your shoes in rainy weather and can be folded into the leg of the overtrousers in dry weather.
Remember to properly position the overshoe's elastic behind the heel to ensure a good hold while pedalling.
Our 540 and 900 City Cycling Overtrousers have a specific cut for both men and women.
WHAT TESTS ARE CARRIED OUT TO ENSURE THE WATERPROOFNESS OF THE OVERTROUSERS?
These overtrousers are waterproof thanks to the durability and coating of its fabric and sealed seams. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in mm of a water jet (test based on standard ISO 811). Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2,000 mm of water. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for 2 hours.
HOW TO ENSURE THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR RAIN OVERTROUSERS
To preserve their waterproofness in the long term, we recommend regularly reactivating the fabric's water repellent property. You can do this every three washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. The trousers' water repellent property can be easily reactivated with heat: put them in your dryer for a short time (about 15 minutes). After washing, be sure to rinse completely.
WHAT MAKES THESE OVERTROUSERS ECO-FRIENDLY?
Dyeing in the mass is used to dye the fibres during the production of the fabric to reduce the environmental impact of the dyeing. It also reduces water consumption and pollution.

COMPATIBILITY (LIGHTING, TROUSER CLIPS)
This product has 2 attachment systems on the back of each leg for you to clip lights onto.For more freedom of movement, you can tighten the cuffs of the overtrousers using trouser clips.
FOR OPTIMAL PROTECTION
Pair your overtrousers with a waterproof poncho or jacket.
Hydrophilic coating (RET = 12): limits condensation inside the garment. To see whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is.
For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric. 9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric. 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric. RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
