Hey everyone summer is here and more and more people are wearing less and less gear. Well I happen to have first hand experience of what it is like to go down while wearing a pair of Shift Lo Down Denim riding pants. Before this I found a lot of people would ask me if the pants would hold up during a crash. I know the answer now. I made this thread because I know people find leather's hot in the summer. I think these might be a good alternative.
Here's what happened I went down at about 50 kph. I slid about 20 or 30 feet on concrete and 10 feet on gravel. I suffered no road rash. My knee was cut open from the impact. I recieved 5 stiches and a drain tube from the hospital.
Here's what the pants look like after:
