Many riders make the same mistake when it comes to riding gear. They get a fantastic helmet, comfortable gloves, a smart and protective jacket and some top notch boots – but then they overlook motorbike trousers preferring to ride in jeans or other trousers instead.
This can be a significant mistake, because failing to buy a good pair of motorbike trousers can leave your legs exposed to some serious damage in the event of an accident.
Thankfully, at Saltire Motorcycles we stock a wide range of motorbike trousers including pairs from established names like Rukka, Wolf, RST, Rev’it, Alpinestars, Draggin Jeans and Spada. Our retail store attracts visitors from Edinburgh; Fife; Livingston; and throughout the Lothian region; because they know that the riding gear available is of the highest quality.
When choosing motorbike trousers think first about the fabric you want to buy and place the emphasis on safety over style – typically you can choose between leather, mesh and even denim. You’ll want a fabric that feels right on you especially if you are riding for a long period of time. Also consider whether they are water resistant and can protect you in all weather conditions.
Prices for motorbike trousers can vary widely – they can start as low as £5 and range all the way up to £1,000. Check out what’s available, most suitable for you and your budget at Saltire Motorcycles now.
