Need a new pair of pants for woods riding? Mosko Moto’s new Woodsman Enduro riding pants might be what you’re looking for, with a hybrid design for comfort.
These are stretchy, outdoorsy, pants, like something you’d buy at REI or MEC for mountain climbing or hiking—not your traditional riding pants style. Mosko Moto wanted the Woodsman Enduro pants to flow air, but also wanted some protection from splashes, wet motorcycle seats, soggy trailside bushes, that sort of thing. So, these pants have Schoeller’s C-Change technical fabric in the seats and knees. This is breathable and waterproof, helping you stay dry. The rest of the pants are made of a nylon Oxford cloth; it’s treated to be water repellent. The pants are designed to tuck into boots, too, if you expect to find yourself in rain, bring along a waterproof outer layer.
However, the two-fabric construction should keep the rider comfortable in most non-rainy situation, with enough airflow that they won’t get too sweaty. Mosko Moto also included four vents, to improve airflow. The pants don’t have any armor; Mosko Moto says they’re designed to fit over offroad-style riding armor (think knee braces, etc.).
The Woodsman Enduro pants have two hip pockets and two cargo pockets, and an adjustable waistband. They’re made in Bangladesh, with a $299 MSRP on the Mosko Moto website. They’re available in a black-on-tan, and all-brown.
