Are you an intermediate skier who wants to make progress? These warm, waterproof and breathable trousers are tailored to skiers who are improving. Warmth, waterproofing and breathability: the 580 trousers have all the technical properties an intermediate skier needs to improve under the best possible conditions.
The 580 trousers were developed with a sophisticated component and assembly to prevent water from entering and reduce wind chill in order to cope with bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check that they are waterproof, these trousers were placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier has to cope with. We approved this product's waterproofing by skiing in different conditions for several days.
The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. The 580 trousers are equipped with water-repellent components that prolong their resistance to bad weather. This high-tech solution will keep you dry for longer on the ski slopes. For it to remain effective, you must repeat this treatment regularly using the products sold in our stores.
The coating is a waterproofing material spread over the inner surface of a fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by the body's physical activity to escape. So you stay dry and feel more comfortable while practising your sport.
The trouser membrane consists of a very thin component applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. It is hydrophilic and prevents water from getting in while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body. A membrane is essential for keeping warm and dry.
In addition to the waterproof material, the waterproofing of the 580 trousers is enhanced with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow (seat and knees).
We use wadding for insulation to help keep you warm. This polyester-based synthetic material traps air, the quantity of which will depend on the size of the fibres. There are standard, high-tech or siliconised wadding materials, each one of which has different properties: warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.
It is a product that eliminates the water vapour produced by the physically active body, keeping you dry. To measure the breathability of a fabric, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat, called RET, with a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wed'ze uses high-tech materials and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) that help prevent condensation inside the garment. RET of the 580 trousers < 12
To keep your legs warm and dry: wear 2 breathable layers, e.g. a ski base layer or a pair of ski tights to retain warmth and ski trousers to protect you from the weather conditions.
Our trousers have elasticated gaiters at the bottom that cover the shoes. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal formed by the gaiter keeps the snow out.
To optimise the performance and durability of your trousers, we recommend the following: machine wash at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. Wring out manually. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can restore the waterproofing the outer fabric using a waterproof spray for fabrics. Read the care instructions.
Sizes : S to 2XL Colours: : Navy Also available: : Grey
Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the fabric coating. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All Wed'ze products are designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested under the same conditions of use as you will experience (snow, cold, powder snow, etc.) The design teams ensure that the programme for which the product is designed and developed corresponds perfectly to its use in the field.
