Dainese Pony C2 Perforated Leather Pants 4.5 5 14 14
Glovely I took a shot to the toe over labor day weekend from a piece of plate steel thrown up by a SUV in front of me, so after a month of foot immobilization I decided it was time to buy some boots...and maybe some pants. My previous southern hemisphere armor consisted of leather boots, Blundstones, and Levis with Icon Field Armor knee pads underneath. I am always a little leery of buying pants or shoes online unless, like aforementioned Levis, I know the style and measurements, so I went to a local store here in San Diego to check out boots and when I casually mentioned I may also be looking for some pants the sales guy asked leather or textile, and when I said leather in a 35" waist he brought me these in a 56. It took me a second to figure out how to get into them, and then a confused moment trying to wrap them outside the boots(Sidi Cobra), but once we got that figured out I could not believe how well they fit. I am 6'2", 230, not an easy frame to fit, but these things fit like a glove, and with a enough room left at the waist that I didn't feel the need to suck anything in. In fact, the only thing I might complain about here, viz. the flimsy single snap belt fastener, didn't even come into play. I read all the reviews here before writing mine and there seem to be common themes with calf size and pinching at the knee. Let's address calf size first. One of the complications I face when buying pants is that my left calf is 1 inch greater in circumference than my right as the result of a shattered ankle a few years ago, my left calf is 17.5" and the right is 16.5". This bit of bad luck actually provides a good basis for comparison here because I can give you a pretty good idea of how much difference an inch makes. On the left leg the pants fit snugly over the boot with only a little extra effort required to help pull the hem together to close the zipper, and on the right it pretty much zips right down with minimal resistance almost as if it were designed for my legs. I did note that most of the reviews that mentioned calves included the caveat that the know they have canned hams for calves, but given the repeat reviews including this complaint I have to think some people are in calf denial. As for pinching, these comments seemed to come from people riding sportier bikes and, while this is my first pair of leathers, it seems some amount of pinching in that kind of riding position would be natural, at least for a little while. I ride an O4 Ducati Multi and with the relaxed riding position I never felt a thing. Along those lines I felt it very easy, on the first wear, to swing my leg not over just the bike, but Givi luggage mounted to the tail. The other thing I liked was the padding on the inside of the knees that made it feel effortless to grip the tank and practically steer by knee. As for the perforation or air flow, I was riding in south San Diego county today and it was pretty hot but the conclusion I came to was that it was the liner in the jacket that was keeping me hot, not the pants. And for anyone wondering why I had the liner in, it's because when I hit the higher elevations of Mt. Laguna, Julian, etc. it can sometimes be a little cool, especially late on a Sunday afternoon riding in the shade... Anyway, still a new purchase so we'll see what else comes up but for right now I feel just like the kid of who got a brand new bike for his birthday. September 28, 2015
Perfect street pants! I was looking for for a good mate to my avro jacket in leather for the street and didn't need sliders. The quality of these pants is amazing, even though they are perf, they are warm in 85+ days but any leather will be. Armor and padding stays in place and definitely makes me feel more protected. These pants are snug, I have a 31" waist and its hard to find the right fit but following Revzilla's video guides and sizing charts helped immensely. The back of the knees were tight at first. Wearing them around the house for a day or two and a few rides they are loosening up as they break in. Awesome pants, highly suggest them if you are not hitting the track, totally worth the money... July 13, 2015
Excelent fabric! Fits perfect! Once I am a brasilian I´ll try to say something in english. I liked it a lot. Fits perfect in my body. It is exactly what I thougt it was. I do recomend. My entire stuff is Dainese, jacket, pant, boot and glove. Best regards. February 23, 2015
Great looking pants that fit well and are well made but aren't great with boots They are great looking pants, no question. They are also incredibly well made and look very protective. I have one major issue with them and one minor. The major issue is that I clearly have larger calves then most. I own a pair of TCX X-Cube boots and I cannot get the zipper to close over these boots. The pants also don't fit in the boots. So as a result, I ride with these slightly open. Which means it's it's raining, the water gets in from the top of the boot since the pants don't close around them. I can't even predict which boot would work best with these pants. The minor issue is that if you wear these with just underwear, the lining will rub your knees and it will chaff them. I did a 6hr ride with these pants and I came back with some pretty raw skin on the knees. You can fix that by wearing some lycra tights or something similar. But other then those two issues, these really are fantastic pants. They also work better with people who have thin calves as compared to larger calves. Mine are quite large thus why I think I have issues with my boots. November 14, 2014
Great Commuter Or Weekend Warrior Pants I have always been a big fan of dainese products and feel you truly get what you pay for, ultimately I was torn between these and the aliens and decided to go with the Pony because of perforation. Living in arizona if i want more than 3 months out of my leathers this is a must, the airflow itself is nothing phenomenal but does do a pretty decent job up to around 85 or 90, possibly higher. The pants themselves are sized pretty dead on but will not work to well with certain jackets and a racing tuck due to them riding a little low. However combined with a seperate dainese jacket (a super speed c2 in my case) you have a flawlessly fitting suit I wouldn't mind throwing around on the track or the freeway for a simple commute. My only complaint of the pants which is also a bit of a positive, is the knee protection. I can't fit them under my current boots due to the way dainese goes down the shin, but outside the pants with expansion zipper undone they fit wonderfully! Overall definitely a recommended product! October 30, 2014
Overall rather good with one small almost-deal-breaker I think these pants are great except for when trying to wear them with the legs tucked inside your boots. There are 2 zippers on the lower leg: one for the opening, and one for the expansion panel. One of these zippers is heavier-duty than the other and the (somewhat clunky) slider of this one really digs into my leg when I wear my boots over them. This makes an otherwise very comfortable pant rather unpleasant to wear for more than an hour or so. I'm trying to figure out a fix for this since I don't want to change-up my boots (Forma Adventures, which I'm really happy with). I like these a lot otherwise, and I'm sure they'd be fine with in-boots. October 14, 2014
Pony C2 pants are very good Aside from the small annoying thing of the right knee pad wanting to grab my knee hair a little when my knees are bent, this is a great, super protective leather pant. It breathes well for a leather pant as I've ridden in 85 degree weather without any issue when wearing boxers underneath and in 60 degrees with a pair of slacks or jeans underneath. I think with some thermal underwear I could do upper 40 degrees comfortably. September 15, 2014
Intro to Dainese pants - love them These pants are great. I measured myself according to Revzilla's sizing instruction, ordered the size that fit the measurements, and crossed my fingers that I would get it right the first time - and the right size arrived. The first couple of rides took a little bit of breaking in, as most leather does from my experience. After about 50-100 miles they fit like a glove. A couple of notes: Yes, these are perforated - but they are leather. Wore on some 80 degree humid days in NYC. While at speed they're great - stopped a different story; but not unbearable. You will most likely sweat. Perhaps it's my inseam compared to height, but these pants are slightly short in the hem especially in the seated position. With boots they're fine, but just something to be aware of. September 15, 2014

Joseph F asked: How do these compare to the Dianese Alien pants? I know these are perforated and the Aliens are not, and I'm thinking of these to use instead of the Aliens for warm weather riding. So, I'm interested to know if these are similar to the Aliens, and if not, how they differ (other than perforation)? Apr 21, 2014

Eyvind M: My weather here is 90+F all year round.
I like the protection the Aliens afford, but they are hot.
If you're riding a bike that gives you airflow, the fabric part will ventilate well.
The leather part gets very hot in the sun.

I still wear them...

Ilias C asked: I usually wear a size 50 in Dainese textile pants (eg. Yamato). Would it be the same size in leather ones, and particularly Pony C2? May 3, 2014

Alan A: I own a pair of Dainese textile pants in a 52--don't recall the model--and the Ponys in a 52 and yes, the sizing is very similar. Note that unlike the textile pants, after some usage the leather pants will loosen about 1 size, eg, from a 52 to a 53. So don't panic if the leather pants are a little tight at first. Feb 8, 2015

Richard L: I wear these zipped over sidi canyon boots, and they are fine. The issue for me is that the sidi boots have a shin guard, and the pants have amor all the way down. You are double-armored from mid shin down, which makes it difficult to walk off the bike. Jun 2, 2015
Reply to Richard Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
James L: I haven't tried personally but I keep them zipped at the bottom. When zipped they are tight on my ankles, but if you unzip the bottom of the legs I would assume they would. They open up quite a bit. Mar 3, 2014

Sherif A asked: Would these fit comfortably inside "Dainese TR-Course Out Air Boots" ? It seems from the review video its best to wear them with "In" boots. Oct 5, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brian M: I've tried them with both boots. The Course In boots have Velcro on them that will Frey the inside of the Pony C2's, so do get the Course In bots. I wear the Pony C2's tucked into the Course out boots. It is a little tight when you zip up the boots, but works fine for me. Hope this helps. Oct 5, 2015

Jason B: I tried to wear them with "out" boots but the zipper in the back dug uncomfortably into my heel/calf, I ended up buying the Axial pro "ins" and now I love both products. I wouldn't have kept them if I wanted to stick with an out boot, it was just too uncomfortable to me. Oct 5, 2015

Travis F: I wear 35/36wait 32inseam and im in the 54 that are a snug fit. 54 may fit like normal pants on you but too loose for leathers which should be form fitting as theyll stretch a bit after break in. So I think 52 is right size since you dont want it loose in thighs. If youre on the tighter end of 34s already bordering 35 then go with 54. Aug 15, 2015

William M: I am a 32 waist/30 inseam. The 48 fits me perfectly. The 52 should be good.
They are really great pants.

Christian K: The pants seem to have some style elements and no sliders. A true track pants can take some low siders and you go back on the bike in them. Those probably will protect you but they won't look as good after you went down….. May 29, 2014

Richard L: I wore them on a 3 hour blast last week along the highway into Vegas. They were fine, but i was on-bike the whole time. If you get off in 90+ degrees, you will be comfortable in shorts, not pants of any kind. On my rented harley cruiser, there wasn't much air flow from the position of the perforations. Jun 2, 2015
Reply to Richard Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
James L: I haven't had a really hot day in these yet but there is certainly air flow. I was comfortable at 60 degrees, a bit cool actually but you can feel air flowing through them. Apr 6, 2014

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.
