Icon is back at it, throwing out head turning, eye catching, unique gear for the Spring 2015 season. We have known them for their wild graphics and protection in the sport world for years. More recently, they have stepped up the retro and classic stylization with their 1000 lineup, which has the distinct dystopian feel we have come to love. Spring 2015 is bringing many new, exciting pieces of gear, but one we are most excited for is their take on the Adventure riding world, with the Icon Raiden series.
Being their most Adventure ready pant to date, the Icon Raiden DKR Pants gives the performance ADV riders need, with the individual looks Icon is known for. Whether you decide to throw muddy roost its way, or need something to slip on over the dress pants for your Adventure Commute, the HYCOR Waterproof Chassis should be up to the task, especially with its Teflon waterproof coating. These pants will mostly be used for the chillier days, since the Thinsulate Liner is not removeable, although this does make for a less bulky, warm pant.
Icon Raiden DKR Pants Review:
Luckily, women aren't left out on this stylin' performance deal. The Icon Women's Raiden DKR Pants have all the goodies we anxiously await in the Men's, but with a modified fit. These DKR pants will be available in Woman's sizes XS-2XL, and be slightly shorter and more slim than the Men's. Additionally, these both have the included D3O Hip and Knee Protectors.
For the riders looking to rock the Icon look on their ADV bike, or just their rat rod city racer, but need some more air flow, for those mind warpingly hot days, there are the Icon Raiden Arakis Pants. Inspired by motocross performance and fit, these Nylon/Mesh chassis pants will keep you cool as you blast the abandoned roads, and the Leather Paneling will keep you protected from those hand welded high pipes. Wear these over or under your boot, it's all good, they're that versatile.
Icon Raiden Arakis Pants Review:
Being one of their first attempts to step into the Adventure world, we have very high hopes, but at least know they'll do it while lookin' good. The materials are all top notch, like name brand Teflon, D3O, and Thinsulate, so quality is definitely not being overlooked. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of many more, performance oriented pieces for the riders who like to get a little dirty, ditch a single layer, and step into the office like you just stepped out of your Jag. Don't worry, we'll keep the reality of your commute between us.
