Tech Lab // Aterra Performance Hybrid Pants

The cold season has always exerted its own fascination on us. It is the time when the power of nature is omnipresent and presents us athletes with special challenges. Precipitation, cold, wind, short days, and the coziness of home -- at no other time of the year do we have to leave our comfort zone as often as in winter. And yet we do it because we have an inner urge: we seek the challenge, want to be one with ourselves, and experience the elements in all their facets.

In order to support our athletes in the best possible way, the Ryzon Tech Lab has developed a pair of highly functional running pants especially for the rough season, which defy the toughest conditions, are extremely light, and offer maximum freedom of movement: the Aterra Performance Hybrid Pants. A product for the highest demands with a fit tailored to the special requirements and a specially developed material -- made in Portugal.

When developing the pants, the Tech Lab faced a special challenge as they wanted to combine supposedly contradictory properties in a high-performance product: the running pants should be suitable for very cold temperatures, withstand small showers and wind and be robust. At the same time, they should remain light and dynamic with maximum comfort and freedom of movement. Other essential factors were high breathability and optimal thermoregulation, even during intensive training. Last but not least, the trousers had to be versatile.

We finally found the solution in a specially-developed fabric and an innovative construction method.
The basis is a water- and wind-repellent main material. This has been continuously developed since the introduction of the Hybrid Pants. In the latest generation, a 4-way stretch, softshell material serves as the main material, which is lighter, stretchier, windproof and more water-repellent than its predecessor.
The lotus effect is used to protect against moisture. Thanks to an ecological DWR coating patented by our Italian supplier, water drops roll off the surface of the trousers. This effect is supported by taped seams. The very dense weave of the material ensures high abrasion values and protection against wind.

Essential for cold days: a specially developed flocking on the interior of the pants stores body heat and thus protects us from cooling down. In addition, it creates a pleasant, soft feeling on the skin. For ideal thermoregulation, the flock is not applied over the entire surface, but in a honeycomb pattern with recessed areas that promote air passage. This achieves an optimal balance between generating warmth and creating a comfortable microclimate.
With regard to the fit of the pants, the benchmark was to create maximum freedom of movement without having to make major sacrifices in performance and dynamics. Therefore, it was agreed on a close, but not too tight cut and decided to combine the advantages of a tight with those of a loose pant.
The result was an innovative construction with a close-fitting calf section and a looser fit on the thighs. Completed by the new elastic main material, additional stretch inserts on the sides and inner leg and a knee overlap, a hybrid matured that brings dynamics, performance, comfort, and freedom of movement in an ideal balance.

Another benefit is the individually adjustable zippers at the leg cuffs, which make it easier to get into the pants and provide additional range of motion if desired. Zip pockets on both sides and at the back store our essentials without adding bulk while running.
