Denim Gear

Anyone have expierance with icon or joerocket denim riding pants? They look like a good pair of pants that you can wear anywhere, but I want to know how crash resistant they are.

Re: Denim Gear

hopefully noone here can tell you how crash resistant they are...

but i would assume that they are a good quality,, being that they are made by those two manufacturers.

icon has really blown up the sportbike scene with their products.

Re: Denim Gear

Thats what I would assume. They are about same price as a cheap pair of textiles.

Re: Denim Gear

I used to be against the idea of wearing icon, but recently, they have been making some things that have cought my eyes, I just purchased a pair of "hooligan" gloves. Their stuff is made well also.

Re: Denim Gear

i like the icon stuff, but just not enough to buy and wear it,, nothing against them, but i have two 2 pc, suits and a 1 pc suit already, so there is no need for more riding gear,, next for me is another helmet,,, i'll prolly get a scorpion, but i like the icon helmet with the little sexxxxxy shoot em up girl on the sides,,,
or the sexxxxy asian girl,, have you guys seen those..

Re: Denim Gear

For general cruizing denim jeans will probably hold up just fine and the rider style denim jeans are probably even better but.... it all depends on the crash and things of that nature. I went down with a set of Earth cords on and they held up great but I was under 40mph and lowsided so.....

Re: Denim Gear

IMO, Icon is junk all about the look, little about protection. some JR stuff is OK, some not.

if i were to buy riding specific jeans, it would be draggin jeans

Re: Denim Gear

The Draggins do look like some tough stuff, but I just like the textile breathers on the icons. Breezes rule, especially on your crotch!

The picture of the pants with the chapped made me laugh for some reason.
