The Argon are motorcycle pants that are perfectly suited for the modern city dweller and commuter who wants to be comfortable but sufficiently protected while on the road with his two-wheeler.
The exterior of the Argon is largely made of stretching CORDURA®-denim, which ensures that the base is wear-resistant and flexible at the same time. Aramid-reinforcements on the hips and knees give an extra layer of protection and if that wasn’t enough, Alpinestars integrated another double set of impact protectors: Nucleon Plus knee protection and Bio-Flex Plus hip protectors that lift everything up a level. A solid, triple seam keeps the entire ensemble together. This results in a CE-certification of category II EN17092, class AA.
Further, there’s a lot of emphasis on the ‘jeans’ in the jeans motorbike trousers: with regard to appearance as well as to wearing comfort. Or almost. The observant motorbiker – aren’t we all? – will definitely notice the extra back pocket and whoever takes a closer look at the bottom of the trouser legs, will spot the reflective stripes. These trouser legs are tapered towards your ankles so don’t think for an instant that you’ll slide those motorbike boots underneath these trousers. A decent button-and-zipper closure and the other five pockets notorious in these types of motorbike jeans give a familiar vibe.
The Argon is a pair of slim fit motorcycle jeans trousers, so a tight fit. It carries a little weight; you certainly won’t have the feeling to ride around too lightly, even though this is miles apart from the sweaty motorcycle jeans that once were. The Argon has found the right balance between safety and comfort.
