Belica Black Slim is a further developed version of our most popular Belica Black.
The two different models have the same fit and the same details. The difference lies in the circumference of the legs.
It is made with EXTRA narrow legs (circumference around the knee), which we know there is a great need for.
An extra bonus is that those who have to go up a size because of the waist don’t get loose material at the knee.
So it therefore suits both those with narrow legs – but also those with wide hips and waists with “normal” legs. They can go up a whole 2 sizes with advantage!
The Slim editions are all made based on the same principle and measurement chart. Once you have found that Slim suits you, there are other types of breeches to look forward to.
What does the lumbar support do?
Due to the design of the waist, you get a completely new experience of a good fit. The waist is angled so you have a high support at the back but a lower one at the front. Everything is elastic so the trousers will mold to your body.
The angle makes it easier for you to use your abdominal muscles and gives you good support to sit correctly while riding.
What material are they made of?
They are made of eco-friendly bamboo material. Bamboo is known for its very good properties, such as
- antibacterial – your trousers are more resistant to odours
- dirt-repellent – your trousers don’t get dirty as quickly and can easily be wiped off with a cloth
- they do not crease as much and do not shrink in the wash
- quick drying
- breathable – can be used all year round as you can breathe in them. When it is extra cold, you can advantageously use a baselayer trousers underneath.
We test our pants every single day. We have several test riders who ride many horses every day and subject them to hard daily use. We are especially aware of the flu! You simply have to keep them!
Our grip is not too “strong” so that it locks your seat, but also not too “weak” so that you cannot hold on. We think it should be reminiscent of leather, but just give you the extra that leather can’t.
How is the fit?
The fabric is very stretchy in all directions and we have made the trousers in a Slimfit that basically fits everyone, as the fabric molds to the body. You get a pair of trousers that fit without losing mobility. You will find that you have much greater mobility than you are used to. We have minimized the stitching around the ankle, and lengthened the lycra fabric at the bottom so that they do not stub on tall girls, and do not become too long for slightly shorter girls. Our pockets are deep and have elastic, so they can hold a large mobile phone.
It’s all the little details that make all the difference.
We call it Perfect Fit.
