Joe Rocket Speedmaster 5 leathers pants - August 27, 2008, 08:47 PM

ive been looking into these pants but i dont know if they are any good...anyone out there have a pair of these. if so how do you like them? are they comfy? does your joint get really uncomfortable at times...let me know these are important factors in my decision. thanks

I had speedmaster pants + speedmaster jacket from 2005... was fine for me.. i crashed in them too at summit and they held up well and protected me 100%... pricey though from what i remember.

I have them now and they are nice...I did have a problem with the stiching in the knee...and they are rather pricey, but they fit good, I thought they would have more perf, but I've worn them in 90+ w/o problem.

I cant recall whether mine is from 04 or 05 - but it is the same stuff. Crashed a few times in them, and they have held up really well. No stitching issues.

Mine is fine - right where it should be and there is some room for adjustment.

I have had the speedblasters for about 3 years and have even gone down in them right on my hip. I had taken the hip pads out but it definitely saved my skin and the leather held up well. The zipper in that area still works even.

I still prefer to wear these and my jacket on the street instead of my 1 piece and if for nothing else the thick leather in the seat lets me ride all day in comfort.

They have a 360 zip which lets you use them on the track. I got a 1 piece because after my collarbone surgery it is hard for me to reach around and mess with zipping it.

When I get on the bike I adjust and they stay right where they are suppose to be no problems. Walking around they seem low but with your legs bent they are perfect.

The padding in the knee area is thick and over time it can get uncomfortable but this just might be true for any knee protection area.
My 1 piece does the same!

they do seem kinda off especially if you look at other pants/ suits, but I've yet to knee down in them so we'll see...either the puck or the leather
