RiDE review: Resurgence Voyager jeans

These join the Bull-it Veloce and Draggin Holeshot as protective jeans rated to CE Level 2, with an abrasion result of 10.83 seconds from their Pekev fabric.

Where they differ to both the others is the fit and tailoring. While still more bulky than regular jeans, the Voyagers disguise it well, and in the vintage brown colour offer a stylish alternative to regular blue denim. 

That said, the pronounced Knox hip protection is unflattering – though easily removed when you’re off the bike. Velcro boots straps are an annoyance, as they are on the Bull-it Veloce, but the combination of safety, style and comfort wins them a RiDE Recommended triangle and makes them the pick of the full, CE-approved protective jeans currently available.
