Roadskin® Taranis Elite motorcycle jeans achieve the highest possible protection rating - AAA – in black, while remaining cool and comfortable.er

Introducing Roadskin’s Taranis Elite motorcycle jeans in black - the latest addition to our collection. These jeans are the first to provide a AAA safety rating in a single layer, as tested by the SATRA Technology Centre in the UK. The protective Kevlar fibers are woven into premium denim, making them look and feel like regular five-pocket jeans, but with the added peace of mind that comes with wearing AAAs. The Taranis jeans also contain a good amount of elastane for stretch, ensuring maximum comfort both on and off the bike. They are soft to the touch and look great, while keeping you safe.

Taranis Motorcycle Jeans Features:

Our motorcycle jeans are designed with both safety and comfort in mind. They are lined with a special mesh material that serves a dual purpose. Firstly, the mesh allows for proper ventilation, keeping you cool even on hot summer days. Secondly, and more importantly, in the event of an accident, the mesh provides an added layer of protection to prevent your skin from tearing upon initial impact. This feature can greatly reduce the severity of injuries in a motorcycle accident. So, you can ride with peace of mind, knowing that you're not only comfortable but also well-protected.

Cut with a straight leg in black denim; the stylish and lightweight triple-stitched Taranis Elite motorcycle jeans will take you anywhere you want to go – they’re tough enough for the road, stylish enough for work and great for the pub. They are especially suitable for touring in all climates except the coldest.

Important information regarding motorcycle jean armour

It is very important to wear the armour provided with these motorcycle jeans, not just to help protect your bones but also to reduce the impact of the bone against the fabric in the key areas. The fabric is not designed to withstand impact injury, in the key areas, without armour.

Best fit guide

To find your best fit for our motorcycle jeans, please do the following:

Grab your favourite pair of jeans. Then measure across the waist in inches. Double that to get the waist size.

Then measure from the crotch of the jeans to the end of one leg. With both measurements to hand, you are ready to order.

Motorcycle Jeans Testing & Ratings

Since 21st April 2018 all motorcycle clothing has to be certified as PPE or Personal Protective Equipment by law.

Clothing is classified to different levels AAA being the most protective down to C being the least. Loosely speaking you can say that they are most suited to the type of riding below but always go for the highest if possible.  

  • AAA Motorways and higher speeds
  • AA Touring
  • A City or Urban use 30mph and below
  • B No armour so not advised
  • C Waste of time

This testing is done by certified bodies both here (we use SATRA) and abroad under the standard EN 17092-2.

Caring for your motorcycle jeans

Keeping your motorcycle jeans in peak condition is important not just for how they look but for your safety – you might say, there’s a lot riding on it!

Once you’ve settled on a favourite pair, and worn them in, and they’ve become a faithful friend in pretty much every and any riding situation, you’ll want them to last forever.

We have all heard about the denim aficionados are reluctant to wash their jeans, but motorcycle jeans are different. Not washing them means that they will inevitably degrade over time, thanks for grime, grease and sweat.

We have produced a guide on keeping them clean and in tip top condition.
