Yaras Zip-Off Pants: Cycling Pants From Recycled Tires

Outdoor Fun for the Whole Family

• Zip-off pants from recycled tires
• Abrasion-resistant, high-stretch material
• Multifunctional and easily adjustable

When it comes to cycling pants, flexibility is everything – you never know what the weather will throw at you next. The Yaras Zip-Off Pants are an all-season garment and can quickly adapt to the elements. The environmentally friendly pants use polyamide made from recycled tires – a revolution on the textile market.

Discarded car tires are difficult to recycle and have typically been incinerated or sent to the landfill. But now VAUDE and BASF have developed a chemical process to produce polyamide fabric from the rubber.

This environmentally friendly, robust material is perfect for cycling pants, where abrasion-resistance and long life is key.

All-round sustainability
The Yaras Series is made from recycled polyamide, which is just as resilient, fast-drying and high-performance as conventional polyamide derived from crude oil – but far more environmentally friendly.
