Sportbike Riding Pants - March 25, 2015, 11:07 AM

Does anyone have any recommendation for riding pants. I would be interested in anything from casual to aggressive. Aka Jeans ---> textile ---> leather.

I ride in AGVsport Corsicas. Kevlar lined. They are the only sub 150 dollar jeans that don't look like super baggy hiphop jeans that I could find. Actually fitted. Buy one size up though as they fit very small.

Do you have a price range? You can get anything from $100 textile/mesh or jeans to $700 for high quality technical textile or top of the line leather.

What type of riding? Commuting, city, fast paced weekend rides in the mountains?

Alpinestars Ablaze jeans are Kevlar lined with knee and hip protection. Tested by this guy at 80+... they work well

I have these in black http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/motorc...hurricane.html

Definitely didn't pay that price though...Got them for like $199 via Riders Discount. Great as over pants or standalone. Good for commuting or putting around. Don't know if I wouldn't wear them for aggressive riding; have leather pants for that.

Thanks for the recommendations. I do all types of riding that is mostly leisure and little commuting. city mountains local twisties are my forte. I want a low profile set and a more aggressive pair. ~150 for casual 250-350 for more technical would be my range.

For pants I like my REV'IT Gear pants (they now make the Gear 2 which is similar). It has leather in the abrasion areas and mesh everywhere else. It also has a rain liner. I'm not sure how well it will work for you though since it's made to go with the Ignition jacket, but that's not mandatory. Also, if you wanted to wear commuting you'd have to change into jeans when you arrive.

I also have the REV'IT airwave pants which are much cheaper, but are textile and mesh (textile in the high abrasion areas). They are a looser fit so they can be worn as overpants when commuting. That's what I use in the summer.

If you're looking for just one pair of pants I wouldn't recommend kevlar jeans if you want to do all the things you listed. I don't believe they should be worn outside of city or town riding on sunny days. If you're hitting the mountains and you're getting on highways I'd spend the extra on good textile or leather pants that are versatile or those plus jeans.

I use the Icon Overlord Resistance. A good one for riding. Comfortable and stylish as well.

I have some that I'd let you have for a steal if they fit you; barely worn but don't recall the size, have to look. Astars textile.

I've been rocking the Rev'It Vapor Pants (REV'IT! Vapor Pants - RevZilla) almost every day since April, I love them. Super comfy, I feel well protected, and they've handled the day to day abuse relatively well so far. Built in rain liner, and removeable insulated liner (which is nice and warm, even riding in this morning, these pants with the liner in were all I needed.) Highly recommended. What I liked most about them when I was shopping was the sportier cut (less baggy) than a lot of the other textile pants I tried on.
