Dainese Kansas 1K Jeans

Comfortable, practical and stylish, the Dainese Kansas 1K riding jeans were designed to guarantee your protection and safety while remaining as style-conscious as you would expect from a Dainese product. As always, Dainese use only the very highest quality materials including denim with interwoven Aramid and DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers which provide exceptional abrasion resistance. Flexible, CE Certified Pro-Shape knee protectors further enhance the protective elements of these riding jeans.


  • Pro Shape soft protectors certified to Standard EN 1621.1 included

Ergonomics and Comfort:

  • Denim fabric with DuPont™ Kevlar®
  • Internal reinforcements with DuPont™ Kevlar®
  • Comfort fit
  • Belt loops


  • 5 outside pockets


We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.

Dainese Kansas 1K Jeans 4.5 5 45 45
Excellent The beauty of these pants is that they provide excellent protection and you can wear them almost anywhere. August 17, 2015
Danese did it again! Really pleased! Good looking jeans and very comfortable. Not sure how really effective are the flexible knee protections (hope will never find out) but sure they feel great. August 14, 2015
Fit great, look great. These are the best-fitting riding jeans I've found so far. They feel great on the bike, they look like regular jeans off the bike and they offer decent protection (about average compared to most other riding jeans). On sale, they were definitely worth it! August 10, 2015
Styling pair of riding jeans that offers good protection! I bought these jeans since they were on sale online, I was looking for a pair of jeans that would provide some decent protection for riding around town and short trips. These jeans feel solid and I imagine they would hold up pretty well just like Dainese claims they will but I do not plan on testing them! The knee armor is a bit less substantial than I expected but it's there. I had to get these jeans hemmed to fit my length and I like wearing them now that they fit well. I wish they were just a bit more loose but I think it'll be alright. As other reviews have pointed out, these aren't the most breathable pants but not to the point where it's unbearable. July 5, 2015
Great Riding Jeans Really nice riding jeans. The fit in the waist is perfectly true to size and the length for me was long but perfect while on the bike. I would definitely recommend. June 22, 2015
Not a drop-crotch jean Sure the quads are a little tighter but you can still decent, not-quad-zilla legs in them. Not of the drop-crotch variety like my Scorpions where the crotch feels like it's halfway to your knees. Works well with "Dunlop" bellies. June 1, 2015
Decent jean, for a highrise This is a decent jean for the price, my major complaint is that it's a highrise pant (think belly button), which i am not a fan of. May 3, 2015
Excellent Riding JEANS These jeans are great. They look like just normal jeans when and so are really comfortable to walk around in no matter what you're doing. The Kevlar lining is great and although I haven't tested them out I feel very confident in anything Dainese puts out. The kneepads were smaller than I expected and it makes me wonder how much they'll actually do in the event of a crash - my guess is very little, but maybe 'just enough' to prevent an injury. But that's just speculation. The pants are otherwise perfectly comfortable. The pants don't zipper up in the front but instead just have a total of four buttons coming up the front instead of one button and a zipper. The front pockets are spacious enough to hold what I'd imagine the average person holds in their pockets on a day-to-day basis. The belt loops are exactly what you'd expet from jeans. The back pocket zippers, as mentioned by some other comments, are a little sharp so getting things out can result in them eating up the tips of your fingers occasionally. It doesn't bother me enough to take away from how much I enjoy the rest of the pants and the zippers do well in keeping my wallet where it belongs. The length of the pants runs a little longer - you'd have to look up the exact length, but I'm 95% sure it's either 34 or 35 inches long - which happens to be perfect for me as I wear size 31 waist 34 inseam, and I just keep them rolled all the way down to hide my boot laces. The waist size is very true-to-size. As a last note, the liner will keep your legs warmer than normal jeans and also keep the wind from biting into your legs on colder days. I tend to wear long-underwear beneath them when it's particularly brisk outside. I don't see them becoming excessively hot as compared to regular jeans on a hot summer's day, though. All in all, excellent pants (Lightyears better than other brands, as to be expected by all Dainese products) - but I'd reckon they're not a replacement for leather pants when you're doing serious sport riding.

Jonathan E: Nice looking with good protection. Nov 17, 2015
Stasinos D: Comfort and protection on the bike, with the off the bike casual look I can easily wear around town. Sep 16, 2015
Hwang S: Was on sale. Just got the jeans yesterday and I am happy that I took the plunge. Looks fantastic but probably will be a bit warm. Jun 23, 2015
A S: I have had good success with the brand and these were on sale when I was looking for some riding jeans. They don't look over the top in the styling department so they just look like a pair of black jeans but with more protection. May 17, 2015
Daniel H: Wanted something more casual that I could wear at work/other destinations without having to change but also fairly protective. Look like normal jeans and are supposedly pretty comfortable, so I hope they live up to expectations. May 15, 2015
Hans H: Kevlar with some knee protection; using for light riding when leathers aren't practical. HH, Tiger 1050. May 6, 2015

J D: Looking for a casual riding pant that protects but still looks good! Apr 4, 2015
Hector R: I'm a short guy with an athletic build (5'4", 155lbs). These jeans fit like a pair of my favorite Levi's. They are a bit tight on the thighs and butt, but they will fit over a pair of Gaerne boots with some persuasion. Not too hot, but I do get cold in 50 deg weather. I only mention that because they do have a lining in them. They fit well and look pretty normal even with light knee pads. The picture makes them look like skinny jeans or slim cut, but I wouldn't classify them as such. Mar 28, 2015
jarret m: good reviews, video seemed to indicate this is what I was looking for, and it was on sale Mar 25, 2015

Richard T B: I wanted some more protection when I was just jumping around town and don't wanna wear full leathers. Sep 29, 2014
Jason W: I wanted some jeans with a bit of Kevlar in them. Aug 17, 2014

Tomas K: No. They are tight. If you have muscular non ballerina legs, you will feel pain sitting on a sport bike. I did however dump at 40mph and slid on my knees and butt for a considerable distance and walked away with minor scratches. Feb 17, 2015

Artemus G: Unfortunately I returned the jeans. They did not fit like Levi's. They actually ran smaller in the waist and legs. I purchased the Rokker jeans, which fit like Levi's. I have had them for a year and really like them and they do stretch like regular Levi's as well. Feb 17, 2015

mauricio L asked: Hi

I'm about to buy these jeans but wanted to check if you can add hip pads like the Alpinestars hell cat?
I like Dainese better regarding style but looks like the Alpinestars hellcalt offers more protection?
If I could add the hip pads I would go for the Kansas 1k.

Phillip V: Hi,

I bought these jeans recently and absolutely love them. Unfortunately they do not accept hip pads, there are no pockets for them. The Kevlar in the rear does wrap around to the front of the thigh however. While it dose not go all the way around, to cover the whole front of the thigh, it is enough to feel a little protected. The knee armor is soft armor. It's a thin piece of honey comb shaped rubber. I would trust the jeans in a light wreck / low side. They are the best fitting jeans I own also, they run true to size in the waist. Length is a little long but I roll the legs under and they hold while riding. I to debated between the Alpinestars and these. I got these in the end because I liked the idea of having the woven in Kevlar throughout the jeans, the use of buttons in the front instead of a zipper, and back pockets that both zip up!. I also have a pair of armored shorts that I wear when i head out on longer more intense rides. They make up for not having hip armor built in. Hope this helps!

A shopper asked: Which size we should to choosing this jeans if usually my Levi's size is 32/34. weist 88, hips 102? Apr 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph B: I ordered these in my usual J Crew jeans size of 34/32, and they fit about the same. The bottoms are pretty skinny, like a Boot fit Levi or Lucky. So if you wear bulky boots or have large calves, its just going to be a snug pull over your boot.
I wear Sidi boots, that have adjustable closures around the calf, and keep them snug to my leg. Nice pair of jeans all around, and the built in armor is easily removed if desired, though more than comfortable when worn.

Russell G: I would opt for the 34, or maybe even a size up. I found that comparing my sizes yielded a slightly smaller Dainese jean that I wanted, but it also depends on the cut of Levi you typically wear. Apr 27, 2014

A shopper asked: What size should I order? I'm 5'9" and 185 with thick, athletic thighs. I've tried on a pair of D6 32, 34? The waist was good but they seemed long and looked like skinny jeans. The knee protection seemed to be low for my knees. If I get a 34 waist will that help with my thighs? Mar 10, 2014

Aaron J: This is more of a skinny (thin) jean. Anthony references the 501 and the 514 in another video. You should look at the 0K jean as it is more of a loose fit. Mar 17, 2014

A shopper asked: Is this good protection against abrasion like leather? Apr 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nep B: I cannot compare as thankfully never had to test them out ;-)
These are lined with Kevlar as well as kevlar intertergrated with the denim fabric so l would say very good protection. These pants also have removable kneepads that you cant really tell they are there, stealthy :)
They make for a nice pair of jeans to wear after you ride , for around town they are by far my favorite.
These are also cooler in hot temperatures than leather
Maybe not a direct answer but hopefully it helps with your decision

Jason B: Don't think I can add photos here but is the kevlar the yellow part? if the answer is yes, then I don't think it wraps around the whole knee but it is heavily padded. Apr 2, 2014
