SA1NT high rise skinny jeans look and feel like fashion pants while still providing the quality protection you would expect from riding gear.
These comfortable, stretchy pants can be worn all day both on and off the bike, so you won't have to bother with a change of clothes. With a stylish look and AA rated protection, it's like owning two pairs of jeans at once.
SA1NT's unbreakable high rise skinny jeans are the ultimate package. Made with elastane for stretch and all-day comfort, they still manage to achieve the toughness of high-end protective riding jeans. Built from Dyneema, the same material that's used to make bulletproof armour, these are quality jeans that are more than up to the task should things go random. Whether you commute on your bike or mainly go on weekend rides, the SA1NT skinny jeans are the perfect 'undercover' option if you're not a fan of the look of bulky riding gear. They look and feel like regular denim, so they pair with just about anything.
- Breathable and comfortable
- Versatile style that pairs with just about anything

For a long time, motorcycle riders had to make a choice between looking good or keeping their bodies protected. With the SA1NT unbreakable high rise skinny jeans, you can have it both ways. Gone are the days of skin-tight leather pants, leather jackets and gaudy motorcycle outfits. The future has arrived.
The reality of riding a motorcycle is that normal denim jeans just won't cut it. If things go random on the road, your nice designer jeans will be torn to shreds in less than a second, literally. According to the TAC, normal jeans only provide 0.6 seconds of protection in a motorcycle crash at 80km/h.
The SA1NT high rise skinny jeans offer four seconds of crash protection from top to bottom, so you can ride safe and confident. Better yet, they look and feel amazing! They're so comfy that it's easy to forget you're actually wearing a piece of motorcycle gear.

SA1NT high rise skinny jeans are woven with Dyneema, a next-generation material that's used to make bulletproof armour, armour helicopters, and it even tethers space shuttles. It's kind of like something out of a James Bond film.
What makes Dyneema so unique when compared to other materials is its incredible strength-to-weight ratio. It's 15 times stronger than steel at the same weight, but remarkably about 40% lighter than Kevlar. So Dyneema has this incredible double benefit of providing high-level protection while remaining lightweight, allowing manufacturers to make protective clothing without that horrible bulky feeling.
Dyneema has a high tensile strength, abrasion resistance and cut resistance, which makes it an ideal fabric to fuse with denim. Wearing Dyneema-infused pants feels just like wearing regular denim, which is incredible given the amount of protection they still provide. So you can say goodbye to those horrible, tight leather riding pants of the past. The future is now.
The SA1NT skinny jeans are made using a single layer of denim, which makes them lighter and more breathable than lined jeans, which is how most other manufacturers make their pants.
What do these two terms mean? Simply put, a single layer jean is made by weaving a protective fabric, Dyneema in this case, into the actual pants. Lined jeans are made by placing the protective fabric on top of the denim, without weaving it together.
As you can probably guess, single layer denim breathes and feels a whole lot better than lined denim. This is how SA1NT can get their jeans to feel so stretchy and comfy without skimping on protection. It's all just a bit of modern day technological magic.
Motorcycle gear is a long-term investment, so you want it to last a long time in order to get your money's worth.
The high rise skinny jeans are not only woven with Dyneema, but made with a strong felt seam that makes them tough and long lasting. The quality and care of the stitching will also ensure that these jeans last for many adventures to come.
To get the most out of your SA1NT riding jeans, try to wash them as little as possible. Washing detergents not only strip the colour, but slowly break down the cotton fibres that make up denim fabric. If possible, try to spot clean stains with a damp cloth instead of washing the entire garment.
Of course, you'll need to wash the pants at some point. Hand washing is the best way to keep your denim in top condition.
Giving the pants a cold wash with 1/2 teaspoon of detergent is the best way to freshen them up without damaging their long-term value. Air dry the jeans inside, as direct sunlight can cause the denim to fade.

The SA1NT skinny jeans come in black and indigo blue, which are honestly the only two colours you will ever need. Dark coloured jeans pair well with so many outfit options. Since these jeans are such a dead ringer for everyday denim, you can pair them with anything that you would normally match with denim jeans.
IMPORTANT: The indigo jeans go through a unique dying process which requires special consideration over the first few weeks of use. The indigo dye will dry or wet bleed onto white or light garments, so take care where you wear them during the first few weeks of use.
The slick, modern look of the SA1NT high rise skinny jeans can make it feel like you're practically buying designer jeans. It's hard to believe that something so protective can feel so good, but the results speak for themselves. If you wear them casually, people will have a hard time believing that they're anything other than fashion jeans.
SA1NT jeans are made with a single layer, so they're not especially bulky when ranked against comparable high waist jeans. The pockets are deep enough to be functional, have no metal rivets and the rubber-coated front button won't scratch your bike's tank.
If you like minimalistic fashion than these are the jeans for you. There's no embellished stitching except for a small wing logo embroidery, so you don't have to worry about large, ugly symbols that are sometimes found on motorcycle clothing. The simplicity of these jeans make them great to pair with other clothing, motorcycle gear or not.
These jeans are made with a high rise waist, so there won't be any gaping in the back when you're in full-tuck on a sports bike. Your shirt will easily tuck and stay tucked into the jeans, so you won't have to worry about your back peeking out as you ride.
The inseam measures at 31 inches, which is relatively long for skinny jeans, but necessary so that your ankles aren't left exposed. Despite the extra length, they still look good when worn with regular shoes or boots.
With a tight form-flattering look, you can wear these pants anywhere that you would normally rock a nice pair of jeans, with the confidence that you're looking and feeling your very best. Not bad for a pair of motorcycle pants.
The high rise skinny jeans are super protective but they don't come with armour pockets. If you love these pants but feel that you need a bit of extra security in the knees and hips, check out the engineered straight fit armoured jeans for women that SA1NT also make.
Comfort and Fit
People have a hard time believing just how comfy and stretchy SA1NT jeans can be until they've tried them on in person. The light, breathable feel of these jeans make them awesome for all-day use, whether it's mostly off the bike or on it.
Because they're made with Dyneema, a strong but lightweight material, the high rise skinny jeans are great for riding in warm weather. It's a hard pill to swallow that you always need to cover yourself no matter how warm it gets outside, but these highly breathable jeans make things a whole lot comfier on the road.
SA1NT skinny jeans wear and break in just like regular everyday jeans. They fit true to size and don't feel bulky and heavy, unlike most other brands of motorcycle clothing.
These pants are so comfy that you'll probably end up forgetting that you're wearing a piece of motorcycle gear at some point.
Style and Versatility
The SA1NT skinny jeans have a minimalist, sleek style that can be paired with just about any outfit for any occasion. Even if riding a motorcycle is only a small part of your day, the comfort and everyday style of these pants are perfect for long stretches of use. They're a great option if you're not a fan of loud, over the top motorcycle outfits.
These jeans are designed to be highly practical and wearable for everyday use. Whether you commute to work, ride mainly on weekends or simply hop on a friend's bike from time to time, there's no occasion where they're going to look out of place.
Because of their lightweight design, the SA1NT skinny jeans are great to wear even when the weather heats up. Sure, you'll still be a little bit hot on a boiling summer's day, but these jeans are still the best option available when it comes to protection without suffering from heatstroke.
You can even rock these jeans during colder weather as well. If it's a seriously cold winter's day and you need some extra layering, they're stretchy enough so you can wear thin leggings underneath.
