Born Free Gusseted Crotch ™

Born Free Gusseted Crotch ™

The Born Free Gusseted Crotch is an added fabric panel inserted in the pant leg and crotch area. It adds extension to the range of motion for the pant. This design element aids hikers in crag hopping and climbers in pulling off bouldering maneuvers.

UPF

UPF

The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (or “UPF”) rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric. It is very similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens. A fabric rated UPF 30 is blocking 96.7% UV; UPF of 50 blocks 98% of the UV radiation. Skin cancer risk can be reduced with effectively limiting the amount of exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet light spectrum.

STRETCH

STRETCH

Some of our fabrics feature a fibre that allows for stretch for added flexibility and range of motion: Spandex is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity and strength. Spandex is the preferred name in North America; in many European countries it is referred to as "elastane", and is known in Britain mainly as Lycra.

Free Ryde Waist

Free Ryde Waist

Another hallmark of Kühl design, this feature incorporates the Kühl Yoke Waistband –it follows the natural contour of the human body. The hips rise in the back and so should your pant! The Free Ryde Waist provides a contour fit to keep the pant in place as you move! The Free Ryde Waist also has a longer length from belt top to crotch for extra room to extend your range during crag hops and bouldering maneuvers.
