Textile Riding Pants, like their jacket counterparts, offer a high level of versatility in their use, while still offering a good level of safety. Though generally cheaper than leather pants, textile trousers will offer more features such as better ventilation, adjustability, and waterproofing.
Textile Motorcycle Trousers are a broad category for gear. They can be found in anything from casual jeans to touring or racing applications. So, it’s important to keep in mind what sort of pants would best suit your bike and riding style. If you tour during the summer, then a pair of pants with mesh would be the best option. However, if you plan to commute everyday no matter what the weather is, then you may want to consider a waterproof overpant that let’s you change quickly and easily.
Though Textile Motorcycle pants won’t offer the same level of abrasion resistance as leather motorcycle trousers, they do still offer a good level of safety. These types of pants are usually made out of a polyester yarn or Cordura. And, though they come with impact protection in the knees, it’s important to check whether the pair of pants you are looking at also come with hip protectors or replaceable knee sliders.
