An all-new winter all-road riding platform, the TACTICA Winter Cargo Pants combine ASSOS warmest RX thermal insulation with a new 3L softshell and a low-volume construction that accommodates pedaling comfort and provides knee protection. Comfort and performance together.
The TACTICA Winter Cargo Pants are built on two new technologies: the heavyweight RX Extreme insulating textile and the even heavier Winter Foam Light insulated softshell. As the main textile, RX Extreme creates a microclimate of thermoregulating warmth and water repellency while Winter Foam Light protects against road and trail spray across the lower legs. The two thigh pockets are sewn for durability and then bonded to eliminate leaks, and they include a zippered closure on the right thigh and an easy access ramp security design on the left. Reflective finishing on the lower legs catches light during leg movement, helping you stay visible in low-light conditions. WHEN/HOW TO USE IT For cool conditions off-road or while commuting, pair with summer-weight TACTICA Liners and the STEPPENWOLF Spring Fall Jacket. In cold or wet conditions, reinforce your microclimate with the TACTICA Winter liner and the TRAIL Winter Jacket.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURED FABRICS The body textile is an all-new thermal warp knit, the 350g/m² RX EVO Extreme. It’s our warmest brushed textile, and it incorporates a four-way stretch to maintain full motion in the saddle. It also prioritizes a dry microclimate with breathability and a DWR treatment. Panels of Winter Foam Light wrap the lower legs in a stormproof, thermally insulated softshell, and the pockets are supported by Type.OF11. All textiles are protected with a DWR Water + Mud Shield Tec treatment. CONSTRUCTION/FIT The TACTICA Winter Cargo Pants incorporate Louvre Tec tailoring to reduce volume and map to the body while still providing room for thermal layering and knee protection. Bonded pocket seams seal out the elements. ENGINEERING - Water & Mud Shield Tec: A new, trail-specific technology that sheds water and mud, prevents stains, and actively expels internal moisture. - zeroPressure Waist: A soft, highly elastic waist construction that improves comfort and hold at the waist, minus any pressure or pinching. - Louvre Tec: Excess material removed behind the knee reduces bunching and wrinkling throughout the pedal stroke.
