My latest review for webbikeworld.com takes a look at the 1860 Ton Up jeans from Trilobite. These jeans are part of a new trend where apparel manufacturers are putting together motorcycle riding jeans that do not have an extra abrasion resistant layer. Instead, Dyneema ® is used in the denim itself to create a sort of “super” denim that looks and feels (mostly) like normal cotton denim but can meet the abrasion resistance required for a CE level 1 (or better).
This material combined with traditional blue jean styling makes for a pretty stealthy pair of riding jeans. By just looking at them one would be hard pressed to tell they are protective riding gear. Add in the included hip and knee armor and the Ton Up jeans would appear to be the whole package, but all this comes at a price. What is that price exactly? Hit the link below to find out.
