A Change for the Worse The originals were my "go-to" sport touring pants last year but I wanted the latest C2 version so sold them and bought these. In my opinion the C2 might meet tougher EU specs but they no longer work for me for a few reasons. They are listed as having the suit to boot system but potential purchasers should be aware that they do not have this system. They have an expansion zipper in the calf but that's it. There is no Velcro on the inside of the shin which the matching Velcro on the "in" boots should marry-up with. This means the Velcro on your "in" boots will rub and destroy the liner in the pants in no time. It also means there is a risk of the pants slipping up your leg either as you ride or in the event of an accident. This was my experience of the previous model before I added a Velcro patch on the inside myself. Whilst the old design didn't have this system either it did have a fall back in the elasticated calf. The entire calf and hem was elastic so you could cinch down the second expansion zipper right to the ankle which would really lock the pants in place. The new design has a fixed hem which doesn't stretch so your expansion is either closed for over the pants type of boots or open. I find in the open position it isn't tight enough and looks hideous (very wide looking calf then narrow ankle). The shin armor is so long it now sits on top of the shin armor in the boots so it is even more unsightly and uncomfortable. This really should be a modular system so the pants armor meets the top of the boot armor in any combination of Dainese pants and boots. I would imagine "out" type boots would have the same issue with overlapping hard armor. I really wish they had kept the aspects of the previous design which made it work so well with their in boots as in other respects they are good pants. However, as a confirmed "under the suit" boot fan these are a step backwards. Plus they are missing aspects of the system they claim to have. August 21, 2014
The fit and comfort is very good with good usable features Brought the Dainese pants on there reputation and the features of the pony C2 Perforated and have not been disappointed .I am a sports bike rider with a few track days so comfort is very important .I have found them very good not a tight fit plenty of movement if you are on the track some pants can interfere restrict movement not these pants .The air flow is also notable over non perforated pants as I live in western Australia cooling is important. As for Features the removable knee/shin armour is very good it gives you options to change them to suit your type of riding June 1, 2014
You Get What You Pay For With Dainese I've looked at and tried on many different leather pants ,These pants are spot on ! Fit , Comfort , Looks, Protection I'm very happy with my purchase, I would also like to say Revzilla has great customer service ! May 31, 2014
Quality Leather Pants I received these pants a few weeks ago and am very impressed with the quality. I have a Dianese Zen Perforated Leather jacket and jumped on these seeing that they were perforated and didn't have knee sliders. I use these pants for Sport Touring so I didn't need the sliders. I normally wear a 32W 30L jean pant, but as Revzilla advised I took measurements and bought the size 52 pants. The fit was perfect for me, very nice around the waist and seat, and snug in the calves. The pants are definitly made for wearing inside boots. I've worn the pants riding once so they are still not fully broken in, but they are very comfortable already. Dianese gear in my opinion is top shelf gear and you feel very protected. Airflow seems to be good, but I'm sure when it's 90 plus I will be warm. I'm willing to sweat a little to be safe when i'm riding. Overall the pants are terrific, no complaints. May 6, 2014
Great style and protection Since I bought these pants in mid March I've only had one opportunity to road test them. They felt great, if a little tight at first but according to other reviews they'll stretch out in time. It was still a little cool for perforated leather but I liked the feel of the pants and paired with my Air Frazer jacket, it's a great match for warmer weather riding. April 7, 2014
Great fit, very comfortable I purchased these pants shortly after I a Dainese jacket having been so impressed with the jacket, I haven't had any leathers before so this is my first go round with both a leather jacket and pants as well. I haven't had either very long, but have managed a few rides in fairly different conditions. The first was at around 30 degrees F, which was surprisingly comfortable. I was never cold even with the perforations in the pants. I felt air flow but it was not cold extremely cold air. It was cool but I stayed comfortable. The second was slightly higher temperature at about 60 degrees. It was also very comfortable. Still felt a little airflow, but never got hot. It was just pleasant. The pants fit very well. I usually wear a 30-34 jean so I decided on the 48's. The fit very well. The legs feel a bit short to me, but im kind of long legged and skinny so i didn't expect it to be perfect. A pair of ankle boots should take care of that, The padding is nice, feels solid where you want it. Knees and shins are well covered. The only negatives I can come up with are the shortish legs and the pockets. The pockets are basically useless. Don't expect to get much more than a single key or a credit card in there. Fortunately my jacket has enough room for anything I might carry. I do like that these pants zip to my current jacket. I like the idea of the added protection in a crash. The only other thought I have is the initial break in. When I got on my bike for the first couple goes, it was fairly difficult to bend my legs up far enough to get to the foot pegs. This has gotten better with a few rides, but on my 06 Yamaha R-6 it was a bit of an effort at first. Overall I'm glad I picked these up and would certainly recommend them to a friend. March 5, 2014

Eric N: I wanted a street oriented leather pant to go with my Laguna Evo jacket. The new Pony C2's made for a good combination. It has solid protection and the quality you would expect from Dianese. Apr 27, 2014
simon f: Dainese are known world wide for quality / style and protection. A tad more expensive , but worth every cent. Feb 4, 2014
David M: I chose these for street riding because I wanted protection and comfort and the perforation for hotter times of the year. I liked the style and the adjustable waist. Jan 4, 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...

A shopper asked: Anthony says this isn't intended for the track, but wouldn't this be a fine pant for beginner group at a track day? It certainly meets trackday requirements it seems. Apr 22, 2014

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

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

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.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross 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.
