Motorcycle Jeans or Textile Trousers


Many riders opt for regular denim jeans trousers when riding a motorcycle, but for more efficient impact and abrasion resistance, proper riding trousers or jeans are a much better option.

Good-quality motorcycle riding trousers have been specifically designed not only to be protective, but also to offer weather resistance, ventilation and a fit much better suited for riding a motorcycle or a scooter.

Materials in motorcycle riding trousers often feature strong fibers, such as Kevlar, either as a lining, patches or woven into the fabric. This makes the garment more abrasion-resistant – important if you fall off and slide on the road. You also often find double or triple stitching in the seams to make the product stronger.
In addition to the fabric and stitching, separate (and often removable) armor in the knees and hips is available from most manufacturers. The level of protection varies so look for products with a CE certification at Level 1 or 2.

Jeans or Textile Riding Trousers

Motorcycle jeans are great for urban riding as they double up as regular jeans trousers for when you’re off the motorcycle. They don’t, however, offer the same level of weather protection as textile trousers. Textile trousers can also be wiped clean easily to freshen them up and get rid of any dirt you may pick up from the road.

Both have their merits in different environments. At the end of the day, it comes down to your riding and style preferences. And, of course, there’s nothing stopping you of owning a pair of both!Tag: Motorcycle-Jeans Motorcycle-Trousers Textile-Trousers Riding-Gear Riding-Paints CE Protection Motorcycle-Gear Safety Armor Kevlar
