Riding pants

Post by chobbler » Sun Jun 03, 2007 1:55 pm

I need some new bike trousers / pants / strides, err...

Textile with a bit of subtle armour, maybe goretex style material, breathable.

what do you all weather types recommend?

Goretex. with some protection is what I have. Best so far.

Some facts about Goretex:
Gore-Tex based fabric material is composed of a thin, porous fluoropolymer membrane with a urethane coating that is bonded to a fabric, usually nylon or polyester. The membrane has about 9 billion pores per square inch (±1.4 billion pores per square centimeter), each of which is approximately 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it impenetrable to liquid water while still allowing the smaller sized water vapor to pass through

Ski pants

Post by Chris Pellett » Sun Jun 03, 2007 7:32 pm

Problem with Skiwear is that it melts on the exhaust pipe.
Problem with Teddy girl dresses when riding pillion (her not me) is the Black box silencer exits midst the petticoats, leaving a distinctive carbon footprint!
(modern jargon - memory from the past)

Direct from the "pub with no beer" here's a list and some reviews of riding jeans available: http://denimleathers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43
Had a few delays getting my jeans to market, the money-boys have insisted on defensive patenting but production is imminent any year now.
Or maybe just a few weeks away.

Happy to supply further info..

Dunno about Cordura, made by DuPont is it? :neutral:
And Goretex sounds like you're heading for Big Gravel Rash In America. :roll:
(I call it Moretox)
If Tex is short for textile, what's Gore in another language?
Problem with Skiwear is that it melts on the exhaust pipe.
Problem with plastic textiles is they melt into your flesh!

Chobbler,

Having ripped the seat out of my leather trousers, how about we commission roadplough to replace the covering of our nether regions. Living on the underside of the planet he should know how to protect those bits, maybe we get a forum/bulk discount but I'm sure he will claim that they are at rock bottom prices.....

Even lower than that,
There's lots of rocks down here
You can see the whites of their eyes
They got sharp teeth
Deep breath, lots of diseases
And a really big one in the middle ;-)

All you gotta do is justify the postage...
And tell us how the seat got ripped off :grin:
