Teknic Sprint riding pants 2000 model product review

Description: All-weather protective motorcycle riding pants
Colors: black
MSRP: $179us $249 cdn

I chose these motorcycle riding pants at the same time that as the Hurricane jacket.

Criteria used in selection:

  • above average impact protection
  • good abrasion protection
  • excellent weather protection

The Sprint cordura motorcyle riding pants use Teknic's waterproof/windproof /breathable POWERSKIN membrane and feature a removable thermal liner. Impact protection is provided by effective dual-density padding on the hips and hard shell armor at the knees. In addition, there are inner pockets allowing the use of additional armor to cover the shin area. Leg zippers are knee-high. For additional protection there is a double layer of cordura in the seat and at the knees.

In use:

By adding or removing the thermal liner, the Teknic Sprint pants remain comfortable over a wide temperature range.

Though I have come to question how breathable the Powerskin membrane is (especially in warmer temps), one thing has become clear: These motorcycle riding pants have remained utterly waterproof in the nastiest and sustained bad riding weather that I've encountered.

I have used them during all my motorcycle rides since 2000. They have never leaked once. Anywhere. A solid performance, considering that I ride a CBR929 that offers relatively limited protection from the elements.

That's my experience.
