Great review from MCN Magazine's Ben Clarke who road tested our Taranis Elite Motorcycle Jeans for two months.
Saying these single-layer jeans from British firm Roadskin look and feel 'just like jeans' may seem obvious, but it's high praise. Apart from the CE Level 2 armour, there's nothing to give these away as anything other than a comfy pair of denim trousers - and yet, they achieve the highest CE rating of AAA. And that's not just the rating for the fabric, either, it's for the jeans as a whole. Given that a triple-A rating was until quite recently largely reserved for leather garments, this is impressive. The fit is slim enough to look cool without being overly restrictive and they've got a Lycra component in the fabric that means you can move freely on the bike. They're perfectly comfortable and I could easily sit and work in them all day after wearing them to commute. They look the part, too, and you could easily wear them to ride to the pub and not feel conspicuous. The fabric is thin enough to keep you cool on warmer days an I've been wearing them into autumn with a base layer underneath.
