Recomendations for riding pants? - May 24, 2007, 09:11 PM

Hey all! Well I went down yesterday and got some rash on my knee and shin So I am looking for some riding pants as I was only wearing jeans at the time. I currently have a Shift textile jacket and it has a zipper for pants, does anyone know of any pants that would zipper up to this jacket? I am also kind of poor at the moment so I can't spend too much for now, so I am looking for something effective, yet not too expensive. Thanks everyone

sorry to hear dude, but do you mind giving us a bit of a crash report and details of what happened? just curious to see what speed it takes to shred the standard bit of denim.

as for riding pants, seems that most jackets with street-pants attachments use a typical 8" zipper, so just look for riding pants that have an 8" zip attachment for jackets. i know SOME jacket brands accept universal pants, i know my fieldsheer's 8" attachment works with any pants. you can also get a non-attaching set of riding jeans or pants as well.

check out shift's website, they have a whole line-up now for textile and leather.

That's your best bet, when you start mix n matching brands the fit can be off.

crap, I'm fat and a 36

Koosh, I was going about 20 mph and high sided....I think the only reason the deniem got tore up was the fact that I was wearing old navy jeans, they aren't that thick.

Thanks for all the advice everyone! I think I might save for some leathers, maybe a 2-piece just to be safe.

I would try draggin jeans, $100 a pair and you can get CE approved knee pads that go in the pants as well (about $25 for the pads, sold seperately). When I am just riding around town and to work that is what I wear. When I go to WV I wear full leather Dainese. Invest in full leather if you are riding twisties.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

ahh i see, that sucks dude. well, leather is ideal but if you want something a bit more casual/expendable for the street, i've been using a pair of astars cargo pants for a while and they held up pretty well in a lowside a little while ago: crash-tested gear pix: fieldsheer congo sport textile and astars cargo pants. don't have any experience with draggin' jeans, but for the same price, the a* jeans already have CE-knee protectors. the only downside is that they don't have any hip protection, but most street jeans seem to be like that.

also, tourmaster makes these riding jeans that also have stock CE-knee protectors, but they're only $68 at motorcycle-superstore. seems like a really good deal, and i'll probably go with a set of these if i rash up my a*'s again
