I just received those today. Very nice quality. The adjustable knee pad location is a great feature. I also like how they zip close to your ankle so you can tuck them inside your boot.RI749 said:
I want those kevlar jeans ... if they are right in their description, it looks like the perfect street pants. The price is definitely up there though ($300)SpiderSense said:i plan on getting a pair of kevlar jeans from cycleport (www.motoport.com).
my wife and i have their kevlar jacket. its light, without the liners, it feels like wearing a tshirt while riding. with liners (2 of them, bulky though), i wear while riding at 40F.
took me 5 months to get the jacket (each order is custom), but i'm hoping the jeans are quicker. i just need to find a pair of jeans, mark the knee pad areas (while in riding position), and send it to them.
i'm in DC metro area and i think i'll roast in leather pants.
Other than leather, I have Dainese Ducati "gore-tex" pants. They are very nice. But spendyTonyC said:Thanks for all the responses. Very helpful.
I have found that pants in the summer do not matter as much in hot weather as compared to the helmet and jacket one is wearing.ducati955 said:do those icon pants get really hot in the summer?
and whats the deal w/ the dianese tech ducati pants?
do you have a link to them?
On those Icon pants, I went on to eBay and made an offer on that auction I posted for you. I offered $60 and the seller came back with $73 as what he would take.TonyC said:Could anyone recommend good riding pants for the street. I am trying to get more protection than what my jeans provide. I also would like to avoid leather. I have looked at BMW and Dainese products. Any suggestions?
