External cordura layer on impact zones
The Spencer uses highly abrasion & tear resistant Cordura Nylon 6 6 shell on all impact zones.
This specialized nylon fabric is highly durable with a UV resistant coating to provide additional protection against UV degradation. This is further complemented by a second layer of ripstop fabric underneath for enhanced abrasion resistance.
Unmatched Comfort & Ventilation
Spencer is designed with strategically placed mesh panels on the body’s hot spots to maximize air flow to these areas.
This is further enhanced by using highly ventilated Sas-Tec level 2 armours that allow sufficient air to pass through keeping you cool throughout the ride.
Even the pocket construction and placement on the pants is such that it does not hinder air flow.
SAS Tec Level 2 Armours for superior lightweight protection
Though the Spencer is a street mesh pant, it offers protection that surpasses the L2 standards by a significant margin - without compromising on comfort.
Sas-Tec armours are designed with special materials that harden on impact while absorbing the energy but remain soft and flexible otherwise.
ViaTerra's proprietary FocusFitTM
The Spencer will feel like a tracksuit thanks to the engineered patterns that allow the fabric to fall effortlessly on the body.
- The pre-curved knee ensures the armour is positioned properly without bulging when the knee is bent. This also ensures that the pants do not ride up when you sit on the bike.
- We also use specialized fabric that offers 4 way stretch without the added bulk of the accordion panel. This will make even treks during your ride stops effortless.
Ergonomics designed for riding position
The construction of the groin area is such that the high stress point near the crotch is removed by adding stretch panels.
The removal of this pressure point ensures there is no stress while sitting on the bike but also allows more room to stretch when you want to get on or off the bike.
Best in class coverage with 180° pant connector
Did you know that the Viaterra Spencer Riding Jacket and Pant feature matching 180 degree zipper connectors? These connectors are longer and more robust than what's available on other riding gear in this category. This offers improved lumbar protection by holding a wider section of the jacket and pant together. It limits the separation between garments due to body movements and keeps the armour and abrasion resistant materials closer to their intended protective positions at all times ensuring the jacket and pants dont ride apart during a crash.
Stay fresh with odor treated inner mesh
To inhibit bacterial growth and to absorb odor molecules & neutralize them so you stay fresh for longer during the ride.
Easy access pockets
The pockets on the pants are designed so they are easily accessible while seated on the bike.
Safe & secure buckle closure
The pants come with a buckle offering you a safe and secure closure which is easier to operate and lasts longer than the velcro or button closure.
Enhanced visibility with well placed reflectives
Strategically placed reflectives to provide enhanced visibility during night rides while balancing aesthetics for day rides.
Original YKK™ zips
Spencer uses the world-class original YKK™ zippers & pullers THROUGHOUT for extra durability and smooth operation.
Bar tacked for added resilience
At all stress points for extra reinforcement
I have used this pant for about 4000 kms, which included a 2500km 8 day NE trip. Following are my observations.
- These Pants are Light. You can wear them all day without any problems. They don’t even look like traditional riding pants.
- Top notch protection.
- Only pant in this price range to provide Tail bone armour
- Long chains makes it easy to get in and out of the pants
- Ventilation is great. Summer riding is not at all that daunting anymore
- Custom fit. It’s not one size fit all, it’s your size fits you.
- Stretch fabric near crotch area keeps the movement free.
- The pockets are not as friendly as they seem to be. Good for storing documents, and receipts.
- Sometimes adjusting the knee armour can be problematic. They have a tendency to slide up instead of staying at place.
