Spidi Gradus Lady over-trousers test

When the spidi brand decides to release a new product, usually she doesn't stop at the prototype stage. And it's not the sur-spidi Gradus Lady pants which is an exception to the rule: this product is a real Swiss army knife that will delight more than one person!

The Gradus Lady, a well-made over-trouser

On the practical side, the Spidi Gradus Lady over-trousers have two side zips which allow you to put them on without having to remove boots or shoes. A real time saver! Spidi even thought of differentiating the right side from the left, with a red colored zip on the right. Which still saves you valuable time when getting dressed.

Ergonomics is not to be outdone: the size is adjustable thanks to a double strap belt with velcro. Another positive point is that women's pants is long enough to cover the ankles. Thanks to its multiple scratches, it accepts without problem and in the same way the racing boots, often wide at the calf, and city ankle boots which require a more fitted fit. Clearly, on the Gradus Lady, nothing has been left to chance!

Spidi Gradus Lady over-trousers, top-notch features

These waterproof over-trousers are capable of accompanying you on a daily basis, and almost all year round (up to +/- 20 degrees without the lining). Not only does it have a warm thermal lining, and removable thanks to press studs, but it also has cE approved knee protectors. They are also removable and adjustable in height to suit all body types. You can use it over jeans to go to work – without having to change for fifteen minutes once you arrive at the office – or you can also use it as a simple waterproof over-trouser over your leathers at the weekend .

If we were to look for the little grain of sand, then we could possibly regret the lack of protection at the hip level or a connecting zip in the back.

Immediately tested, immediately adopted

Really excited about these Spidi Gradus Lady pants, reading their characteristics, I couldn't wait to test them in real conditions, and I was not disappointed! I have never been cold, even on beautiful Auvergne winter days when the temperature flirted with 0. In terms of comfort, it is perfect: despite the multiple layers, these motorcycle over-trousers remain flexible, and know how to be forgotten, allowing you to fully enjoy the ride. the road (and safely).

Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to take real long showers to test its waterproofness. So, I would like to share here and with you the testimony of another user: he has only just started to show its limits after several hours (on a Paris – Bordeaux). And then spidi equipment tested on #EnjoyTheRide seems above reproach in this matter.

Good news gentlemen, the Gradus is not just reserved for women, the men's version is also available with the same features.
