Introduction

Explore the new high end R2 Pro Tech Pants of Radys. 

The new R2 Pro Tech Pants are for all ambitious mountaineer and are produced with a high frequency bonding technology called R'Sonic. The unique combination of fabric- and manufacturing technology paired with sustainable PFC-free finish, extreme moisture vapour transmission, body mapping and new detail solutions like the removable vest are some ingredients of these innovative pants. 

Driven by the passion for magic moments out in the nature, Radys combines the knowledge and the experience from Swiss engineers with latest technologies and the courage to develop unconventional and contemporary solutions.


What is new on the R2 Pro Tech Pants?

First, we had the R2 light tech pants for mountaineering, which were great for all skitouring, snowshoe hiking activities and more. With the R2 Pro Tech Pants we wanted to address the ambitious mountaineers, who are reaching the top of the mountains under extreme conditions. Together with our brand ambassadors, which are working as alpine guides, climbers and other professionals around the mountain, we detected the real needs of alpinism. 

The result of this cooperation was, that there was no further development of the existing skitouring pants. Instead, we created a completely new product, with which we can finally advance into the high alpine segment. 

The prototype of the new R2 Pro Tech Pants won an award in the category "snow sports 3-layer weather protection at Europe's most important sport trade show ISPO.

The new R2 Pro Tech Pants are a completely new developement and will be the highlight of the upcoming winter collection 19/20. With this Kickstarter campaign, we introduce the R2 Pro Tech Pants to the consumer for the very first time. 

Features

The Special Features were designed to satisfy the needs of the mountaineers. Remarkable highlights are the removable vest and the reinforced fabrics, which have never existed on the market before. 

Through a smart zipper system, the vest can be easily removed from the pants. And another beautiful detail: the back of the vest is finished with laserholes for a better breathability. 

The integrated full-length zipper on the side can be used as a ventilation, as the zippers are connected over the buttocks, they can also be used as a drop seat. This feature confirmes the alpine spirit of the pants.

For safety reasons, we choose our fabrics carefully in terms of performance and sustainability. So we decided to use high abrasion resistance fabrics, as for example the Schoeller Cordura Fabric for the edge protection.

Every detail of the pants were worked out until they met all the requirements of an ambitious alpinist. 

Usage

The Pro Tech Pants are perfect for any kind of mountaineers. The following usages are only suggestions, go out there yourself and set new tracks!

Swiss Engineering

Swissness stands for the dependability, precision and independence. These are the core values that Radys represents. Our close proximity to the Alps offers the ideal testing area and also serves as a source of inspiration for the development of technical mountaineering apparel - for summer and winter use, in the mountains and valleys, and on stormy or bright sunny days. The Pro Tech Pants allow the customer a perfect weight and durability ratio at once. We embody these values and are proud of our Swiss roots. 


R'Sonic Technology

 Why would we produce waterpoof materials only to put holes in them? This foundational question lead to the development of R'Sonic stitchless technology: individual parts are fused together using a laser and high-frequency techniques without the use of threading. This results in light, flat and elastic seams that remain durable and tear-resistant without the need for stitching. Now, wicking is a thing of the past, there are no stitches to irritate the skin and the equipment packs more compactly. This special method is used to fashion even the smallest of details and contributes to the clean modern look of Radys. 

Sustainability

Water-repellent equipment usually includes fluorocarbons (PFCs), which are toxic and can do great damage to the environment. That's why we utilize PFC-free water impregnation methods which, when it comes to repelling water, are in no way inferior to products offered by our competitors. Only oil is less effectively repelled when treated PFC-free. For this unlikely scenario, this is a trade-off we are willing to accept for natrue's sake. We want to motivate our customers and competitors to take better care of the natural environment. Radys was the first sport brand to ban the use of PFCs.

Our care for the natural environment doesn't end with our products either. It applies to every step of our material's production processes. For instance, we emphasise short transportation distances between suppliers and producers. At present, 50% of our collection is produced in Europe. We also ensure that our finest Merino wool is sourced mulesing free

Why Kickstarter

We have launched this crowdfunding campaign, that we can achieve our dream of producing the innovative and ISPO Award winner R2 Pro Tech Pants. The product is still in development and the production is not launched yet. 

The campaign have the aim of raising funds according to a reward-based model, allowing us to produce and promptly deliver for next winter season. We are convinced of this outdoor pants with perfect fit and a wide range of innovative technical accessories and solutions.

Risks and challenges

This is Radys first crowdfunding campaign. We started this new project on kickstarter, because we believe that kickstarter’s fantastic community will help us a lot. Therefore we offer different kind of rewards for an outstanding high quality product.

While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product, we've minimized both by having our entire process from production to delivery already arranged and work together with highly professional production company’s.

With all of that being said, we must note that unforeseen complications do occasionally arise. Natural disasters or accidents are unavoidable. We’ve constructed our timelines with reasonable accommodations for unforeseen events.
