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
As I’ve said in the Spencer jacket review, this also is breathable and comfortable in the scorching heat of Vijayawada. Go for it. The protectors feel in place too at the knee.
I have gone through adequate research before buying my first riding pant. I have bought a pair from another indian gear makers, as it was matching with my black-orange jacket. But i didn’t liked the fit and finish, also there was a minor defect in the zip area.
Then finally decided to order the spencer pants from viaterra, though it was few thousands extra than the previous one.
Actually, opted for the Munro pants but it was unavailable for quite few months. And i had a ride coming up. So went for the spencer pant.
Some mishap happened with the courier service and the package was stuck in kolkata. Finally I collected it form the courier warehouse.
And i tried it the very next day. The quality was superb. Fully ventilated and lightweight in general. The fit was optimum as the velcro straps can be ajdusted along the legs. Tri-armour placements were very strategic and fits well. After some time, you will forget that you are carrying some protective armours over your legs. Worth the money.
I have done quite a few trips, trail ridings and still it is running strong.
Overall, loved it.
So, if someone is thinking this Viaterra Spencer pants as an option, I would recommend to confirm it. You will not regret.
NO OTHER PANT WOULD MATCH THE SPENCER. My 6th product from viaterra. Purchased for my Spiti ride. Not a single moment felt it was added expense or any discomfort. Well ventilated. Zippers are superb. Waist belt makes life easy. Wanted to get Munro to match my jackets. But last minut decided to get these... no regrets whatsoever.
I had heard of Viaterra through the grapevines of riding mates some years back, so well came 2020 i had purchased an ADV motorcycle., it was time to suit up...
First purchase of a Viaterra product was their Grid Gloves then Pod 22, 2nd Skin Balaclava, roost Gloves, they are far far ahead of design, materials used, comfort & ease of use, I may be biased 😊
It was now 2022 still unable to decide which riding pant to purchase, I looked at the competition tried a few brands the fit & feel was not comfy for me at least..., was about to purchase Viaterra Monro Pant, the long wait time & size availability was not ideal
Then Bam out of the blue they first launched Spencer Jacket & later on the Spencer riding Pant
As the riding season on 2022 was about to start. took a plunge & ordered the Spencer riding pant via their website
What I like & why I chose about the Spencer riding pant – I am 5.4” – 7 months in & after have ridding over 8000 kms & thorough all kinds of weather with these pants..
•,Their design choice of providing ‘In – Seam’ length of Short & Regular was a huge selling point, along with size exchange & risk-free trail
•,After ordering through the website & got an email to send my size details & a call from Ajinkya he is a genie shared the titbits on correct sizing & pant was delivered ..
•,They are like track pants, comfortable & light weight, pre curved knee fabric for the armour’s placement are just wow, provided the buckle is tighten up & the armour stays where it should be
What can be improved
•,On Buckle design: If you are into saddling or when if you have a large meal 😊
the armour’s Move Lower if the buckle is not tightened up at the hip & near Knee armours, one can tighten only so much before it becomes “a bit” uncomfortable
•,The Knee armours will get harder in cold temps (Knee armours are T+ only) & it rubs against the Knee skin if the buckle is not tightened up, not a big deal, but hey it's persistent, my solution was to put a 3mm thin soft patch wool of behind Knee armour, issue has not come back ..
•,Just keep in mind if one purchases an ADV Boots & MX boots the “Pant will be inside the boots”
It’s like a track pant just fantastic.., go for it..
Happy safe riding, Cheers
One of the best riding pants for all seasons in India, I am blown away by the quality and the customer service provided. Very light and breathable, I should have switched from riding jeans to these much earlier!
