Alpinestars Racing Pants, Apex Curved I have not worn leather pants since I was the keyboardist for REO Speedwagon back in the late '70s. OK, that's a lie -- not the leather pants part, the REO part. I do wear armored pants in both the cordura and denim styles, however. Despite my bias, I am fully aware that my pants choice will not protect nearly as well in the event of an extended slide on the macadam as leather skins.

I do have riding buddies who wear leather pants and I know that it is the smart thing to do. You will not go wrong with Alpinestars. The Alpinestars Apex Leather Pants are solid protection. They have 1.2-1.4mm full-grain, drum-dyed leather for excellent abrasion resistance and a multiple-stitched main seam construction to keep them together. They are pre-curved for the riding position and have well-placed accordion stretch panels for comfort and mobility. In addition to the protective nature of the leather, they have built in hip protection and removable CE-certified GP knee and shin protectors with injection-molded shell and dual density foam padding. They include Alpinestars logo knee pucks.

The pants are offered in Euro sizes 44-60 and three color combinations. There is no doubt that the Alpinestars Apex pants are premium protection even if you never touch that knee puck to pavement.

Here are some other pre-curved pants by Fox Racing.
