Brand new for this Fall, Icon has released a line of products designed to get you through the toughest of riding conditions. With the Icon Patrol All-Weather Gear, they've utilized waterproof breathable technologies coupled with high-denier fabrics to create their highest-level of technical textile gear to date. Check out the video below from Icon that highlights the features and benefits of the Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket, Icon Patrol Waterproof Pants, and Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves.
Both the jacket and pants feature a waterproof seam-sealed nylon textile chassis for superior waterproofing. CE rated Field Armor lives in the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees while the dual-density foam back pad is upgradeable to the Icon CE level 2 Stryker back protector. YKK waterproof zippers and magnetic storm flap closures ensure the waterproof elements of these garments. The 3M scotchlite paneling glows extremely bright when lights hit it ensuring that you'll be seen during grey rainy rides. The jacket has a total of twelve storage pockets for plenty of cargo carrying. It also features a removable hydration pocket that can be filled with a water bladder. The Thermolite insulated liner provides warmth but can be taken out during warm weather
rides, combining with the intake and exhaust ventilation
scheme to keep you cool.
For added protection, there are heavyweight ballistic nylon impact panels. Both the jacket and pants feature a hi-viz yellow version that meets US Military PPE specifications for hi-visibility. The pants feature six storage pockets for added cargo carrying and full-length zippers along the sides of the legs for easy in and out. They also have a removable suspender system for those who like to utilize that. Keep in mind that these pants are designed to fit as overpants, so if you wear a size 32 pant, purchase the 32 if you plan to wear them as overpants; if you'll rock them commando, buy one size smaller, in this case, a 30.
Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves are constructed from waterproof textile with an abrasion-resistant Battlehide goatskin palm. The goatskin provides suppleness in addition to superior tactile feel for using the controls. The back of the hand has reinforced rubber armor in the knuckles in addition to a reflective graphics package for visibility. There is pre-curving for comfort and to reduce fatigue from long-term riding. Finally, there is a visor wiper built into the left index finger for quick cleans of the shield.
Here is the Icon video that details the Icon Patrol Waterproof Boots:
Icon Patrol Waterproof Boots are constructed from a durable leather upper with a 100% waterproof membrane. The sole is slip-resistant with an axialmetric steel shank for support. There is built-in internal ankle protection and shifter interface nubs atop the toe box. The dual adjustable stabilizer straps utilize aluminum positive-lock buckles to create an excellent ratcheting adjustability system for proper fit. The lacing system is hidden underneath a leather panel, keeping your laces safely and securely out of the way. It also looks pretty awesome to have the laces hidden.
This new line of Icon Fall 2010 Gear looks like a home run to us. We're pretty excited to hear feedback on the Patrol line as it starts to come into stock. Stay tuned for more new Icon gear details.
