Q

On my way into work the other day, I saw a guy out rid­ing in what looked like well-ven­ti­lated tex­tile trousers. As I’ve been melt­ing at times in heavy traf­fic re­cently, I’m very cu­ri­ous about kit that will keep me cool and safe. Mike Nor­ris, Twick­en­ham

An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles Vented tex­tile trousers are a pop­u­lar choice for the sum­mer as they of­fer much more pro­tec­tion than con­ven­tional jeans, but al­low more air­flow. Spada pro­duce their Air Pro 2 model which has knee and hip ar­mour along with a con­nect­ing zip to join to a jacket. The Alpines­tars A10 Air Flo pants have a sim­i­lar spec but don’t come with the hip ar­mour al­though they do have Vel­cro for slid­ers. The Dainese Drake Su­per Airs have proved pop­u­lar as they con­nect to Dainese jack­ets. For the se­ri­ous tourer, the Rukka Orivesi have loads of fea­tures in­clud­ing a re­mov­able Gore-tex liner.
