Warm men's insulation pants for cycling: the Minaki by VAUDE
From the pre-shaped knees to the elastic leg cuff and throughout the rear area, a 4-way stretch material made of recycled polyester ensures the best freedom of movement and good breathability. The seam-taped, thus waterproof seat reinforcement is made of very durable polyamide in 3L processing. The two front zipper pockets have been moved so far down to be easily accessible even when riding. The rear higher cut waistband adjustable via Velcro and reflective elements at the back of the leg and in the seat area round off the comfort features.
The good thermal performance of the Primaloft Black insulation consisting of recycled polyester even in humid conditions predestines the Minaki cycling shorts for commuting. The Minaki Winter cycling shorts are treated with Eco Finish PFC-free water and dirt repellent. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for an environmentally friendly, functional product made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials. As a member with Leader status with the independent organization Fair Wear, VAUDE is committed to fair working conditions and fair wages. In addition, this product is climate neutral: emissions from materials, manufacturing process and shipping were determined holistically and systematically reduced. Currently unavoidable emissions have been fully offset via the independent non-profit organization "myclimate".

Windproof Pro is the combination of two different fabric technologies. We use tough 100% windproof fabric and breathable 80% wind repellent fabric. These are strategically placed in each garment to optimally influence performance levels of mountain and bike athletes.
This high-performance product includes recycled polyester. Excess materials from polyester production are collected and reintroduced back into the production process. This saves up to 50% in energy and CO2 emissions as well as fossil raw materials without compromising the function of the clothing.
VAUDE products bearing the Eco Finish been waterproofed in an environmentally-friendly way without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFCs are part of a group of chemical compounds which are used to waterproof the outer layer of many outdoor products. They have come under criticism for being non-biodegradable, bioaccumulative and toxic, and suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has made a clear commitment to completely renouncing PFCs.
