The Sand 3 trousers were developed alongside with the Sand 3 jacket to create an adventure suit as versatile as a Swiss army knife. Like the jacket, these trousers are made out of a tough combination of polyester ripstop and PWR|shell material to make them ready to withstand serious use and abuse. From the outside in they consist of the abrasion resistant outer shell including SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 knee protectors and SEESMART™ CE-rated hip protectors, a 100% waterproof detachable hydratex liner, and a snug detachable thermal liner. With both liners removed, the VCS zippers at the upper leg allow air to flow directly to the legs for instant cooling in hot conditions. Thanks to the grip panel at the back the Sand 3 trousers prevent sliding on the seat under acceleration or braking. Laminated reflection on the calves ensures visibility in the dark, and the YKK slide lock front closure adds comfort to the waist area. The long and short connection zippers are incorporated to allow riders to create a full connected suit with the Sand 3 jacket.
