Well my birth day has come and passed and left me sitting around with $95 in K&W cycle gift certificates (local bike shop). So after pay day I skipped on down, picked up my brain bucket, and ordered my jacket.
I decided that a tinted visor might just be a good idea, instead of wearing sun glasses under the helmet.
Today I went to TT cycles (a shop close to my work) and checked out the tinted visors. I donít know how it came up but they mentioned that some jackets come with visor pockets built in. I was very pleasantly surprised that my new phoenix 4.0 has one of those pockets.
I luck out again!
any way while I was at the shop I asked them about riding pants, something along the lines of mesh with pads in all the right places. They said they have something way better. They showed me these denim pants. I said big whoop, jeans. They then explained that they were 2 layers of denim with a layer of Kevlar between and mesh and 2 inch wide stripes of breathable material here and there. They said they were great, nice and cool and very protective.
I guess what Iím asking is are these good pants?
is there some thing else that I should look into instead of buying them?
I am basically looking for something a little cooler than regular jeans that I can wear in the summer over/instead of shorts?
