We've talked about all the gear you should consider wearing while riding a dirt bike in our blog What to Wear Dirt Biking; but in this blog, we're focusing on just the pants, which are designed to help protect you from external elements and provide comfort while riding. This guide will help you navigate through the vast selection of women's dirt bike pants and how to choose the right pair for you.
Factors to Consider When Shopping for Dirt Bike Pants:
Material. The material of your pants plays a significant role in their durability and protective capabilities. Most high-quality pants are made from a blend of polyester and nylon for strength, with leather panels for added resistance against heat and abrasion. Some models also incorporate stretch panels made from spandex or similar materials for better mobility. At MCREY, we use a military-grade, water-resistant canvas to help ensure durability, and Clarino™ heat-resistant patches help further protect your legs.
Fit. Fit is another crucial factor when selecting womens dirt bike gear. Your motocross pants should fit snugly without restricting movement or causing discomfort. Look for adjustable waistbands or belts for a custom fit, and consider something with ample room around the knees to accommodate knee braces or guards. Our pants include a high-waisted design to flatter your natural curves, with a velcro waist-cinch to help customize the pants to your exact size. We also made sure to include NINE (yes, you read that right) major stretch panels––two at the ankles/calves, two above the knees, two at your crotch, two at the side of your hips, and one across your bum––so your pants ride with you, not against you. Lastly, we built in extra room around the knees so you finally have space for your knee pads––yay!
Ventilation. Good ventilation is essential in motocross pants to keep you cool during intense rides under hot weather conditions. Opt for designs with mesh panels or perforations that allow air circulation without compromising protection. While our pants were designed for cold(er) months, that doesn't mean we don't want them to breathe baby! Our pants are lined with a buttery-soft power mesh and include a breathable mesh panel up the back of the legs. Protection––meet comfort; comfort––meet protection.
Design. While safety should be your primary concern when choosing womens dirt bike gear, there's no harm in considering style too! We want to look cute while we ride! MCREY offers four classic colors so you can mix & match with multiple jerseys.
Price. Lastly, consider your budget when choosing motocross pants but remember that investing in high-quality gear can save you from potential injuries (and medical bills) down the line. We priced our pants to give you the comfort, performance and style women deserve, at a price competitive with the rest of the market. By shopping MCREY, you truly can have it all!
Remember that investing in quality protective wear is not just about enhancing performance; it's about safeguarding yourself against potential risks associated with this thrilling yet challenging sport! So take time choosing your perfect pair – happy riding!
