Trousers Horizon 2FPT081 1 Review
Fully laminated 100% waterproof trousers
Large ventilation panels keep you cool
CE-rated protection at knees and hips
The Horizon 2 trousers allow you to create a fully laminated waterproof suit from top to bottom when zipping it together with the Horizon 2 jacket. By laminating our hydratex® membrane directly to the PWR | shell outer material, we created 100% waterproof trousers with little to no water pickup. Grip panels on the backside of the trousers prevent you from sliding on the seat under acceleration or braking, and the use of a YKK slide lock front closure adds comfort at the waist. SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 knee protectors come standard, as well as extremely thin yet CE-rated SEESMART™ hip protectors. Like the jacket, we equipped the Horizon 2 trousers with our VCS|Aquadefence system. The sizable ventilation panels at the upper legs can be opened while riding thanks to the Fidlock® magnetic fasteners. Once opened, they expose two substantial mesh panels that channel air directly to your legs. Two hand pockets allow some of your small items to be carried close by, and thanks to the detachable thermal liner, the Horizon 2 trousers can also be used comfortably when temperatures fall. Sizes S-XZL std., M-XYL short, M-XXL long
COMPLETE YOUR LOOK
I had the first Horizon jacket and now the Horizon 2 jacket and pants. I was an early purchaser so this may have been (hopefully) corrected in later production runs, but the Velcro attachment points are reversed so they don't work with the Strapper suspenders unless you take the suspenders to a tailor and have them fixed.
Otherwise, the waterproofing is great. The vents are ok, but don't let a ton of air in. I got a bit overheated on a 90 degree day. But they're perfect for 3 season cold riding.
