The durable Cordura textile of the Raven Rova Raven pants will hold up at least once, maybe more, in a slide at in-town speeds (the owner/designer has tested them herself!).

• Adjustable CE Level 1 knee armor comes standard and can be accessed while wearing to ensure perfect placement—but you’ll have to purchase hip armor separately

• Zipper attachment adds a bit of insurance for the hips and torso in a slide, but only if it is used properly on every ride (highly suggested)

Considering that pants for curvy women are hard to find, the Raven Rova Raven pants are a great option, and for $259, you get tons of features for your money.

It’s impressive how well the MotoGirl Moto Ribbed leggings are constructed. The outer layer is stretch twill, meant only for looks, and to be the buffer for the real hero: a full-coverage secondary layer of kevlar made for abrasion protection.

• Kevlar is stitched in place throughout the pants, so there’s no risk of bunching or getting displaced during a slide

• Crash tested by a close friend, these leggings held up at a spirited pace and produced no skin exposure

• CE level 2 knee and hip armor included

The MotoGirl Moto Ribbed leggings pack a powerful punch at just under $200.

Key Specs

• 2 deep front hand pockets

• Flag stitching on the belt loops for security

Protection & Safety

Another impressive package, especially considering the price, the Oxford Super leggings 2.0 have a similar fit and feel to the Moto Ribbed Pants. The outer layer is stretchy, covering an almost full-coverage secondary layer of DuPont Kevlar, which is fantastic abrasion protection.

• Kevlar layer is not stitched in place at the base of each leg, so there’s a small risk of bunching or getting displaced during a slide

• CE level 2 knee armor is included, but you’ll need to purchase hip armor separately

For under $150, the Oxford Super leggings offer great value.

Key Specs

• CE Certified A rate garment (with AA rate abrasion)

• CE Level 2 Knee protection included with internal mesh pocket

• Stretchy denim, skinny fit

• Front and back pockets & thick belt loops

• Comes with mesh pockets for hip armor (armor not included)

• Outer Layer: Cotton / Elastane

• Inner Layer: DuPont™ KEVLAR® Aramid / PE Fiber (which passes AA for abrasion) in Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas, absent in Zone 3 to be cooler and lighter and allow for more airflow.

• 360 GSM knitted loop aramid material which is highly resistant to abrasion, with the test results to prove it!

Protection & Safety

• The DuPont Kevlar included in the secondary layer of the Melissa Skinny Jeans (in major and minor impact zones only) is heavy-duty stuff and will hold up to a decent slide at highway speeds—just don’t do the splits on the asphalt and you’re covered.

• CE Level 2 knee armor is included, but you’ll have to purchase hip armor separately

• Unlined sections of the jeans allow for increased airflow to help battle the heat and prevent fatigue

• High waist keeps more skin covered in a slide

• For $154, the Melissa Skinny Jeans offer good value.

• CE Level 1 knee and hip armor are included, giving these jeans a leg up on the competition

• The unlined sections of the jeans allow for increased airflow to help battle the heat and prevent fatigue, while an extra lip above the mid-rise waist keeps more skin covered in a slide

Protection & Safety

Leather pants are hard to find and harder to fit. For women who lean towards the curvy side (standard and plus sizes), these are both highly protective and designed to fit well.

• High-quality leather construction can withstand higher speeds and last the test of time

• DuPont Kevlar stretch panels add to the abrasion resistance factor of these already exceptional pants

• CE level 1 knee armor is included, but you’ll have to purchase hip armor to complete the impact protection suite

An essential pants-to-jacket connection zipper with an elastic waistband helps the pants to stay put even in a slide. The Raven Rova Phoenix pants offer great value at $403.
