Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants 4.5 5 241 241
Good summer pants Good fit, wear them over shorts. Velcro pulls are nice. OK airflow, just the above knee vents. Very comfortable August 9, 2016
This is the two year review. I have had these pants for two years now probably a couple of thousand miles on the pants and they have been solid. Fit is versatile have used them with a sportbike postition bike as well as a more upright bike both positions were comfortable. Pants do get a little hot in humid weather (not many vents). I have ridden in all seasons and you can wear well into the 30s with long underwear. The three pockets are okay to carry your keys maybe some cash for tolls. Recommended especially if you have a jacket that can take advantage of the ability to zip in makes for a very comfortable riding suit. August 8, 2016
These pants need a gusset and better liner. Major mods needed. I'm 6' and 32" inseam and 31" waist and weight 157. My legs are skinny. Use with SMX-Plus boots. I ordered the 48 and 50. 50 just too big in waist. 48 was perfect. The pants fit great and the armor sits nice while standing. Rider stance?....horrible! I ride a Street Triple R. My knee bends at the shin guard not the hinge and is also super tight in knee area. As the crotch pulls up when you sit and straddle the bike the pants no longer work. I even tried cutting down the armor to make it sit lower while standing then move into correct placement once pants ride up when sitting...didn't work. So tight I couldn't get my knee out! Why do these pants not come with a gusset in the crotch? It would fix everything. The liner is too bulky and is only attached at a few points so it grabs your skin and sticks and restricts moving around on the bike. I cut it out up to the thighs. I also cut the light foam padding out of the knee to added room in the knee. I ditched the plastic armor and had to order some D3O type armor to hopefully salvage these pants. Still awaiting arrival. I'm hoping with these mods and more flexible/thinner armor my knees can actually bend and I can stick my knee out while cornering and not be so restricted. In it's original form I was so restricted it threw off my riding to the point I had to pull the armor out on my ride. I ordered Alpinestars A-10 as well in hopes that they are better--they have to be. Make sure you take the Drakes for a ride before pulling the tags or they can't go back! I'm going to be in over $500 looking for good sport riding pants which I'm a little upset about but I should ridden with tag on for a while and I would have returned them. They do have great style though and comfy in waist, fit over boot if you want, air flow is pretty good. A big crotch gusset to allow legs to straddle while keeping pants in same location while standing would cure the issues I think . Back to the sewing machine Dianese. July 19, 2016
Good Pant for the Money I just got back from a trip up the coast, CA to WA, and back. These pants were great, coming back through Napa they got a little hot, even with the vents open, but they felt durable and were very comfortable. For the mornings I'd wear long underwear underneath and that kept everything comfy. Also they zip into my Dainese jacket so that's nice. July 14, 2016
Excellent Styling, Moderate Protection, Adequate Ventillation Cruiser rider looking for better protection and comfort over jeans. The pants look and fit well, though I needed a Long size in order to get the knee protection to fit correctly in the seated position. I found this odd as I have a 31" inseam. These are described as a 3 season pant but I can say from experience that they are very warm when the temperature gets above 85F. The vent works fairly well but I needed to unzip the legs and "cuff" them in order to get any relief when the temperature climbs. Another nice feature is that they are fast drying. Overall very good pants! July 8, 2016
OK but not great I'm about 5'6" and 155lb with an athletic build (years of squatting heavy and often). These pants work pretty well for me, but they could work better. I bought them because I have a Dianese jacket, and I wanted textile summer pants that would zip into it. Pros: * Handles heat well * 360 zip into Dianese jackets. It's easy to use and makes me feel more secure. * Armor on knees and shins is very solid. Cons: * No hip armor * Not great for an athletic build. Not terrible, but could be better in, for example, the calves and crotch. * Armor on knees and shins is solid to the point that the pants don't wear/fit well with mid-shin boots, so I always wear sport riding shoes instead. All in all, I am content with my purchase. I'm just not glowing about it. June 28, 2016
Solid, Functional Pants I got these pants because the level of hard armor protection in the knees. They are very comfortable and fit well, I am a thin athletic build. The vents in the knees have a noticeable improvement on cooling and the pockets do not drag in the wind. The areas of the rest of the legs can get a bit warm by comparison when the fans are going at low speeds, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice the level of protection at high speeds it seems to have, and its not too bad so I can live with that. They attach easily to my Dianese jacket. Only improvements I can think of would be to add a second rear pocket, as I am used to have both rear pockets in jeans, and that some might want to increase the protection around the pelvis area. There are two foam pads there only, and as I have bony hips I do not feel that is adequate protection for me and will be getting armored compression shorts after I do more research on them. The lack of two rear pockets (still has one rear and two front) is easily livable and the lack of pelvis armor is fixable so they are a great option otherwise. Would buy again if I wore these out. June 26, 2016
Sturdy Pants that Look Great To start off, I have a very slim, fit build. 5'8" about 138lb. 29" waist (?). I tried on the 48 and the waist seemed to be a little loose. Ended up buying the 46 and it fits great; however, the calves area is a bit snug, which doesn't bother me much. The pants themselves feel like quality. The material on the outside seems tough enough to survive a crash. The inside is lined by a breathable mesh that's comfortable, but when sweating it tends to stick a bit to your skin. The pants have a couple of useful features that are quite nice. First of which are the air vents at the top of the knees. These let through a TON of air compared to when they're closed. Ducati totally nailed the air flow in these. The next are the great zippers. Sometimes, great quality zippers need to be appreciated, man. There's a lot of them placed in appropriate places (fly, pockets, calves, jacket attachment point) and they all function phenomenally. Just smooth movements and hasn't caught onto any fabric since I've started wearing them. The calve zippers specifically have been a life saver for me as they help a ton in removing the pants. Maybe the most important of all, is the armor. It feels solid and it doesn't slide around at all, which is awesome. As for looks, this is as good as it gets. A nice slim fit that gives these the appearance of regular black pants. There isn't obnoxious branding all over. Instead, the brand name is placed very subtly, which I actually prefer over just having black. If you're thinking of buying there are things to consider also: -They are quite expensive. I'd say worth it, but if you're buying these because you just need protection there are cheaper alternatives that will do the same job. Air flow and looks are just minor pluses when getting pants just for that purpose of saving you. -They are "heavy". When wearing them they don't feel heavy at all to me, but if you have to carry them around for whatever reason it can be annoying. Plus packing them would be a real b... experience. The armor adds a little bulk and the material is slight stiff. -If you're not into slim fits, look else where. -The space inside pockets are a bit hard to get into. A VERY minor issue, but still one for me nonetheless. -TRY THESE IN STORE FIRST IF POSSIBLE. You may have the same/similar proportions but they still might feel different to you regardless. Plus, the Revzilla team was very helpful and provided good insight. With all these considered, I 100% recommend these pants. Ducati really did make something special here and I appreciate the quality of these pants every day. Ride safe everybody! June 21, 2016
