Motorcycle Trousers38,679 offers*
Motorcycle pants are made of robust, abrasion-resistant, tear-resistant and, if necessary, breathable and waterproof materials. They are also equipped with protectors in the knee, hip and seat area to protect you adequately in the event of a fall. Riding a motorcycle with normal trousers (trousers for men ou trousers for women) that you wear in everyday life is not only reckless, but extremely dangerous.
The motorcycle trousers should reach over the ankles and flush with the boots. In addition, any skin areas on the leg should be covered.
Leather trousers usually fit a little tighter than textile trousers, but they should not be uncomfortably tight or constricting. The best thing to do when buying leather pants is to sit on a motorcycle or a chair and assume the usual motorcycle position. This way you will quickly notice whether the pants fit well or not. Leather expands over time and gradually adapts to the contours of your body.
It is also advisable to check the protectors. They should cover all necessary body parts and not slip.
I advise you to wear special functional underwear for motorcyclists under your motorcycle pants. They are completely windproof, breathable and thermoregulating, so you can wear them all year round. It not only wicks away body moisture, but also dries and warms your skin.
Various manufacturers now offer you many options. Breathable materials, ventilation systems or special manufacturing processes ensure a good body climate in summer.
Nowadays, even leather motorcycle trousers are made using a special tanning process so that they do not heat up in the sun. But textile trousers are also equipped with mesh ventilation panels and zippers to regulate the ventilation yourself. For short rides in summer, you can also opt for motorcycle jeans with appropriate protectors.
You don't really need to ask yourself this question, because Kevlar and aramid are one and the same product. Kevlar is just the brand name for aramid.
No, there are no legal regulations for motorcycle trousers. In the UK, helmets are the only compulsory requirement.
However, we recommend that you always wear suitable motorcycle trousers to prevent injuries and skin abrasions.
