Hey, everyone! I’m trying to make the most of the weather while it’s still quite good. So I’m still looking at different pairs of motorcycle jeans as I’ve found them especially handy myself for the warmer weathers. I’ve got a pair of Richa Hammer Motorcycle Jeans and I think they’re great but I can’t wear them five days a week. Since I find them so handy, I’ve been looking at what potential is out there for another pair and I came across the Richa Cobalt CE Antrhacite Motorcycle Jeans.
They look great, a dark, straight fit pair of jeans that look completely unassuming from the outside so anyone else would never know you’re probably wearing the most protective pair of pants in the room. The material is a mix of Denim Cordura, Cotton and Polyester, all these materials come together to make a denim-like material with superior abrasion resistance for riding on motorcycle. To make sure it all holds up while its saving your skin the jeans even feature safety stitching all over the pants.
To further protect you the jeans even come with D3O CE Level 1 knee and hip protection. In most bike jeans at lesser prices you would have to find your own hip armour so you’ve already saved a bit there but what makes the armour in these jeans so great it the knee armour. In my Richa Hammers the armour only has two configurations- in or out. But in the Richa Cobalt the knee armour is vertically adjustable so that you can customize your jeans to have the armour where you need it and ensure the best protection out of them.
At £149.99 they are quite pricey but when you consider that the jeans are made of some of the best and most advanced materials out there, armour in the knees and hips, you’re getting a really good deal. Especially when you compare it with prices from other brands like Rev’It or Knox who would charge in the £200s. But I can understand if that is a bit much or if you’re biking on more of a budget, so Ghostbikes.com does have a range of Motorcycle Jeans for you to choose from that are a little more affordable, such as the Richa Hammers that I’ve previously mentioned. But if you can find the same pair of jeans elsewhere for less- do let us know! We may be able to match that price or even beat it!
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time!
