Anyone have any experience with these or other kelvar lined riding pants? I am looking for an alternative to my two piece leathers for summer riding, and so I don't look weird if I ride to a non bike event. I am also considering the bohn under armour pants.

Am I crazy? I am worried about road rash, but all the time I see guys on sport bikes with shorts and tank tops... also their biker babes look sexy as hell perched up on the buddy seat with their butts poking out of their shorts, but all I can think of (well, not all) is what they will look like if they fall off....

I have Icon jeans which I like a lot. They are a good fit for women. I know they make some good riding pants for men as well. I have not tested it yet though so I cannot say anything about that.

The're made here in OZ, not cheap but they do work very well, there a few other brands out now too. But dont be fooled into think you wont still ger burned in a slide, the do stop gravel rash, but in a good slide you will still generate a fair ammount of heat

i second the icon gear. the few things ive seen and gotten seem to be pretty good. if you can take the logos, and weird graphics. (not all their stuff has that thought.) i bought a helmet from them a while back. its pretty nice i think. also, i think they are the parts unlimited house brand. but i could be wrong about that.

A kid here in town went down in a pair of Icon pants. I don't really know him so I got the story secondhand. Was told the pants held up perfectly, no split seams, knees stayed together. He had some heat rash from sliding down the pavement. His buddy's said 100mph crash, I'm thinking more like 70 based on where it happened.

You probably couldn't tell my jeans were made by Icon minus the I in stitching on my butt (wonder why they did that??)

I don't have any of their kitty fringe crap because it to showy, but the jeans are good. They fit the best and most fashionable out of all them because I know the next thing to safety is fashion.....even for you guys!

I ride with the Icon pants. They are the cargo pants(camo) and seem to be well made. and you wouldn't know they're Icon. That said, I am skeptical about some of their other stuff.
