Adventure Racing pants General characteristics:
  • Very comfortable
  • Light weight fabric if racing in spring and summer
  • Waterproof and highly breathable performance fabric for winter races providing wind and snow protection
  • Minimum padding to interfere with the running segment (this applies to tights more than pants)
  • Close fitting (like biking shorts) to not catch on vegetation and quick rigging for climbing
  • Quick drying and wicking fabric to keep moisture away from your skin

Bottom Line: Select pants to match terrain, race distance, and weather conditions.
