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)

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.

• The 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

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.

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
