KIT CHOOSER

Which ar­moured jeans Q will suit my com­mute?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I have a main bike for fun, and use a 125cc scooter for com­mut­ing. I don’t wear my full leathers on the scooter and re­cently had a low-speed, but fairly painful fall, so I’d like to get some pro­tec­tive jeans for com­mut­ing. I’d re­ally like a set that can ac­com­mo­date knee ar­mour, too. Roger South­cott, email

A An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles Most mo­tor­cy­cle jeans come with knee ar­mour, or as a bare min­i­mum knee ar­mour pock­ets. Quite a few come with hip ar­mour, or the pock­ets for it, at least. The ones I’m list­ing here all have knee ar­mour and a seam­less knee look. The Knox Rich­mond look OK as do the PMJ Rider. If you’re af­ter a clas­sic wax-look the Oxford SPJ-7 may well work for you as well. The ul­ti­mate are prob­a­bly the Rokker Revo­lu­tion which look like very sim­ple jeans but are very tech­ni­cal. They are wa­ter­proof and boast D30 ar­mour in the knees and hips.
