    Thanks.  Of course none of us need that level of protection because US trophy riders are the top of the skill set.  ;)

    informative reading  :460:
    But it might need an update on the latest technology applied in some denim type "jeans" for the motorcyclist.
    I was surprised by test results that some Kevlar strengthened jeans outperformed top quality other textile garments.

    I am a happy user of the test winner REVIT Lombard jeans since last summer.

    Motorrad magazine articles are published in several other affiliate magazines in Europe but unfortunately not in English.
    But in short the conclusion of the test was that abrasion test showed that the damage characteristics of the kevlar or aramide enforced jeans outperformed most "standard" textile motorcycle gear, mostly because kevlar and aramide have a much higher melting point of around 400C compared to 200C for standard textile used.
