What good is a waterproof membrane if it keeps water out, but also makes your feet sweat like a turkey on Thanksgiving? Our eVent® membrane keeps water out and also wicks sweat away from your feet, keeping them dry inside and out.
ion-mask,™ technology by P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, falls into the category of what we call "magic tech."

Slipping off your pedal can be painful … and really, really awkward. To prevent that, we worked with our team of professional freeride bikers to develop the PedalLINK outsole. It was designed to link up with the pegs of your pedal to keep your foot in place and in control. On top of that, it's got lugs at the toe and heel to help you get around when you're off your bike.
