TLD Sprint Pants
DH pants for protection and durability! If you're after a new pair of DH pants, the Sprint pants from TLD are simply fantastic. After remaining practically unchanged for years the Sprint pants have received a few tweaks for 2020 to make it even harder for the competition to keep up.
The knee area now has a slimmer profile to allow for better movement and unrestricted pedalling, while still leaving room for knee pads. Rear mesh panels on the calves have been optimised for better range of motion and increased ventilation. The right inside ankle has been reinforced to protect against wear from your chain, and a nicely positioned zippered phone pocket places your device on the lower right hamstring area, out of harm's way when you crash, and it won't flap around when you're sprinting for the finish line.
Who's this item for: DH and Enduro racers or anyone that wants the extra protection and warmth that a long race pant can provide.
Liner Included: These do not include a liner, so you can choose to pair them up with your favourite chamois or a protective base layer if you wish.
Materials: Bluesign approved 600D & 500D Mesh fabric, durable ankle heat transfer for protection against chain abrasion, silicone print on inside waistband.
Pockets Position and Quantity: Zippered hand pocket on left hip and phone pocket on lower right hamstring area.
Waist Closure System / Fly / Size Adjusters: Zippered fly with snap closure and fabric hook and loop adjusters on the waist.
Pros: Extra protection for your legs during gravity focussed riding. Keep you warm and toasty when it's cold and wet. Phone pocket on the thigh is well placed to keep it protected when you crash and won't move around when you're pedalling.
Cons: Obviously long pants are going to be warmer than shorts so you won't find yourself reaching for these to wear on pedal fests during the height of summer.

Comfortable pants suitable for shuttle days in the wet and cold.
Great pants, not for hot days.
Finally forked out the money for some proper MTB pants, The shipping took longer than expected unfortunately but still pretty quick. When I first tried them on they felt weird but comfortable. Went for a ride around my suburb and they felt pretty comfy. Have ridden about 5 times with them since and the only thing I could say negatively would be that they are definitely not suited to Australias seasons, Perfect right now as I mostly ride at night and early mornings so it's nice and cool but I can imagine in summer they would be really hot. Really happy with my purchase.
Best pants ever

Sprint pants are perfect for racing. Light, flexible and shaped for pedalling. These pants are durable as well - came off on the track and there is no sign of pilling or tearing.
