Textile motorcycle trousers are an all in one solution for keeping protected, dry and warm. The main material is usually a durable and abrasion resistant Nylon/Cordura fabric. Most textile motorcycle trousers feature a waterproof, breathable membrane between the outer shell and inner lining. The most common of these membranes are produced by Reissa and Hippora. Alpinestars have their membrane called Drystar. There’s also Gore-Tex, which is normally one of the best for breathability.
Most of our textile trousers also feature removable quilted thermal liners, which make them suitable for all-year-round use. If you intend to do more summer than winter riding then look out for a pair that feature zip vents or areas of external mesh fabric that allow good airflow.
Virtually all textile motorcycle trousers include hip pads and CE-approved knee protectors. High end versions sometimes contain D30 pads, which are extra comfortable to wear but respond by firming up in the event of an impact. For general riding, commuting and touring, many riders would agree that textiles are a more versatile option than leather.
Textile motorcycle trousers can be worn instead of leggings/regular trousers or over the top – the choice is yours. In general, the hems should be worn over the top of boots, rather than tucked in. If you wish to attach to a jacket with the rear zip, be sure to keep both brands the same.
