The Held Vader are all-round touring pants from the famous German brand. The pants are available in both men and women sizes.
The Vader Lady is made of HEROS 500D Polyester and is reinforced with 900D at the knees. The thermal lining is removable. A HUMAX, breathable, wind- and waterproof membrane is integrated and not removable. The mesh lining (polyester) guarantees a certain degree of comfort, even when the temperature rises. If that is not enough, there are sufficient ventilation zippers (Air Technology) to let in a welcome breeze.
A tear- and wear-resistant exterior is a good start, but the Vader Lady does not lack the necessary protectors. CE-certified ones on the knees are adjustable in height and there is room to optionally upgrade the hip protectors to CE-certified protection.
All this stays neatly in place at all times, just like the rider who will experience that anti-slip material on the seat really has a positive effect. Getting in and out of the pants is easy thanks to the zippers at the bottom. Connecting the pants to the boots is done by means of velcro.
Thighs, calves and knees got stretch panels for more comfort, and an almost perfect fit. The back of the pants was made higher so that you also have the necessary protection in a sporty - bent forward - seating position. The waist was given two pieces of elastic fabric and was equipped with two velcro strips that allow you to vary the fit. Closed is closed: a double closure (sliding system and push button) and a zipper ensure that the Vader Lady does not - suddenly - open while on the road. Buttons to attach suspenders are provided. Two side pockets and a cargo pocket provide the necessary storage space.
Discrete reflection elements guarantee visibility even in the evening and at night. A long connection zipper allows for many combinations with jackets from the Held range.
We recommend regular treatment with a water-repellent maintenance product to prevent the pants from becoming soaked and to prevent dirt from sticking to them.
