Ski with confidence thanks to the 10,000 mm membrane and waterproof seams
The RET12 breathable component and air vents help to eliminate perspiration
Built-in flexible back protector that protects the back from impacts. PPE UE2017425
Freedom of movement
The loose fit and its flexible back protection will follow all your movements
Durable fabric and lower leg reinforcements for longer life
Recco system to help with avalanche rescue
This is the biggest benefit of these Freeride salopettes. This back protector is compliant with PPE standards. It is made of soft PU foam to not hinder movements and it has micro-perforations for good back ventilation. As it slots into the salopettes, it stays securely in position whatever the situation. At last, a solution to having a back protector that keeps coming out of the trousers or one that is poorly positioned!
When washing the salopettes, simply remove it beforehand.
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. Our FREERIDE trousers and dungarees have water-repellent components that prolong their weather resistance. This is an additional technical solution for staying dry for as long as possible! You should repeat this treatment regularly using the products sold in our stores to maintain these properties.
The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 5000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 5000 mm column of water
Breathability of a component
To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its total evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). This is the capacity of the ski jacket to allow the water vapour produced by the body to escape during physical activity so that you stay dry. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. For example:
RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
/ 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric /
12 < RET
< 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability
What is the difference between a membrane and a coating?
These trousers have a membrane. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the benefit of being more flexible, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than a coating, which is similar to having a layer of paint applied to the inside the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane and requires a lining for protection.
How do we make a garment waterproof?
The waterproofing of the garment is related to its fabric, seam sealing, and assembly design.
Using a waterproof ZIP or adding a flap to the zip (covers the zips with a waterproof fabric flap).
How do we make a garment breathable?
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, we employ technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) improving the overall ventilation of our jackets and trousers designed for Freeride skiing. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.
Your product is repairable
This product is repairable. We commit to repairing your product free of charge for the duration of the warranty. Whatever it is, fixings, seams, zips, etc. This service is offered in your usual store.
If, however, we can’t repair your product (non-repairable production defect), you can exchange it or get a refund.
What is the RECCO® system?
With RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Someone who is equipped with RECCO® reflectors and is buried in the snow can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker. RECCO reflectors are not a substitute for an AVD. The RECCO® technology works as a complementary measure, increasing the chances of being found in time. All our Freeride jackets and trousers are equipped with the RECCO system.
TUTORIAL ON HOW TO WASH YOUR WATERPROOF GARMENT
We recommend that you follow these guidelines at every wash in order to retain all the technical features of your garment.
After three washes, restore the water repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.
