Motorcycle Jeans 2019: 6 of the best from Route One Jeans

Route One Jeans

The latest Route One Jeans collection is a thorough re-work of what already was one of the best value motorcycle jeans ranges around: The latest styles feature softer Triple-A denim, CE-tested fabrics, the latest armour panels, and new, improved fits. What has not changed are the super-accessible price points Route One is known for.


The Slim Fits

These are definitely the current style leaders. Slim fitting with a little bit of give in the fabric for comfort on the motorcycle. Crafted from Triple-A Cordura reinforced denim means more threads per inch, which in turn means a softer handle. Cordura threads in the fabric mix mean improved abrasion-resistance. The knees are protected with the latest, slimmer profile Level-2 CE armour. The main impact areas are backed with 220gms Kevlar panels. Protective AND stylish!

Route One Hardy Slim-Fit Mens Jeans

All the features of the slim-fit garments are listed in the overview. The stand-out detail that makes the Hardy jeans unique: A dark wash finish with selvedge edge detailing on the coin pocket.

Motorcycle Jeans FAQs

Are Route One motorcycle jeans any good?

Route One has made a name for itself crafting motorcycle jeans using premium fabrics such as Triple-A denim alongside certified Kevlar® internal reinforcements. However, the brand aims to provide the fit and comfort of premium jeans at a not-so-premium price by cutting out the wholesalers and selling direct to retailers.

What are kevlar jeans?

Strictly speaking, Kevlar® motorcycle jeans are reinforced jeans that are lined in the main impact areas with a Kevlar® pad. Kevlar® is the DuPont branded version of Aramid fibres. Aramid fibres are highly abrasion-resistant if woven or knitted in the right way. Kevlar®-lined jeans are more expensive than most motorcycle jeans lined in generic Aramid. This is because DuPont operates a licensing system that ensures that manufacturers only use quality fibres (in other words: Kevlar fibres) in a high enough concentration so that the final product is actually abrasion-resistant in the way you would expect. The Kevlar® logo is a quality guarantee.
