Street & Steel Oakland Jeans
It's a pair of traditional style jeans, woven with stretch denim for comfort when riding. Boot cut and yet snug enough so they don't drag on the ground. Longer 33.5" inseam for riding. Inside they are reinforced with heat and tear resistant aramid fabric and removable C.E. knee pads.
- 12oz. Stretch Denim
- Seamless Knee Design
- 5 Pockets
- Heat and Tear Resistant Aramid Reinforced in Seat, Hips and Knees.
- Removable and Adjustable C.E. Knee Pads
I'm a 32x32 in pretty much every jean or pant (fyi, 5'10" and 160 - 165 pounds, Cat 1 endurance mtb racer, very active trail runner, and road cyclist). The Cycle Gear Street & Steel Oakland pants have a longer pant length, about 33.5 or 34 which is spot-on for a riding position.
Comes with two somewhat stiff knee pads that can be adjusted in the knee pocket via hook and loop.
The color is not 1990s stonewashed heavy metal rocker but they are not super dark denim. And unlike some riding pants the fading on thigh areas are barely visible. I am not a fan of super distressed denim or fake weathered styling and these are overall a nice looking color I would not be embarrassed to be seen in.
A YKK zipper is pretty nice and the pants have a bit of stretch in them due to Elastane. Unfortunately that stretch may be the reason I am returning them because the 32 waist is too big. I can pull the pants off while zippered and buttoned. They make a 28 and 30 waist but those were out of stock everywhere. On second thought maybe I should wash the pants, but FYI, whatever waist size you normally wear be prepared for a very loose fit out of the box. Most lined riding pants want you to size up at least 1, but those normally do not have elastane/stretch material.
As for the kevlar, it covers the front from waist down below the knee, and in back it covers the butt and down to mid hamstring. The protective layer is pretty thick, NOT a flimsy thin sheet of knockoff Kevlar, and it's lined with a mesh-like material for air transport and wicking.
