I picked up a pair of the Model 1 jeans which are single layer and come with removable armour in the knees and hips. The single layer construction felt as if I had been wearing a regular pair of jeans and the flex joints in the knees made sitting on the bike for hundreds of miles every day more comfortable than I could have imagined.
Two days after thousands of miles, heading to work early in the morning merging onto the freeway I hit two large piles of gravel and slid out doing 55mph sliding on my butt, elbow and hands. The road rash on my elbow easily shows how bad the slide was on the asphalt and rocky gravel but I was blown away sliding just as much on my butt I didn’t get a single tear through the denim.
The crash bars, hand guards and skateboard rack saved my bike as it slid away towards the freeway but I was able to pop up, wipe off the blood on my arm, pick up my bike and hop back on the freeway and rip back to work. Had I not been wearing the Saint Model 1 jeans my ass would have been just as bad as my elbow.
I will never own any other motorcycle denim other than Saint.…from everyday travel around town, road trips, enduro trips on my Suzuki DRZ…They will be my only choice."
