Our new Paranoid Jean has a slightly narrower fit, to reduce movement of fabric and armour around the legs on impact (and also look nicer), the Military grade Aramid Lining, is Knitted not woven so enabling wider legged people to break them in over a few days.

WE ONLY MAKE FULLY LINED JEANS OR FULLY REINFORCED JEANS.
FOR THE SAME REASON YOU WOULD NOT BUY A PART REINFORCED
FRONT TYRE OR HELMET.
We can sell them at lower, part lined jean prices because you are not paying
for a retailer or a distributor, hence the wholesale-like prices.
The Paranoid jean is undergoing the new CE EN17092 , the material used has already passed the abrasion part of this test at AAA and is provisionally expected by the experts to achieve the highest level of the full CE test at AAA.
The Paranoid jean is our biggest seller, and, pound for pound our best value product. It has been used by several thousand bikers over the years now and has proven itself worthy in many real life spills.
Most of our sales of this product are now recommendations. This new version has an extra 30 grams per metre of aramid in a special terry loop structure giving an even higher strength whilst still maintaining the super comfortable, all year round feel its so famous for and it has also been slightly narrowed in the legs and hips to reduce movement of the fabric and armour on impact with the road, which is crucial and often not taken into consideration with Bike jeans.
The Full inner lining is made from Knitted aramid so this then allows for give in the Jean for people with wider legs to be able to break them in around their own shape over a few days.
Water Resistance and treatment.
This product has now moved on from when this info video was made and now has a waterproof membrane attached to the inside of the denim. This is to back up the recommended spraying of Fabsil on the outside of the garment and seams. The waterproof membrane is of course sewn through when producing the garment so the seams need to be treated after a wash or heavy rain with Fabsil spray or equivalent. We recommend Fabsil, as in our own tests it works FAR better than any other product. As the water resistance of the product is subject to maintenance by the user these garments are sold as water resistant and not water proof. Saying that, these products are sold virtually everyday from recommendations of people happy with their ability in the rain, when maintained properly.
Important Information Regarding Armour.
It is very important to wear armour with these products, not just to help protect your bones but also to reduce the impact of the bone against the fabric in the key areas. The fabric is not designed to withstand impact, in the key areas, without armour.
This Product is Fully lined apart from a small margin at the top of the waistband that is not lined with aramid as it has two layers of denim and the belt instead, so we believe it is not necessary and would make the waistband uncomfortable.
There is also a small area in the opening of the money pockets that is not lined with aramid but instead should have a Ce Hip Armour pad behind the denim plus two layers of Armour pocket material and another layer of pocket material instead, so we do not believe it necessary.
When this product is declared as full ce, all the outer material used needs to be the same to achieve AAA so it will have to have this small area lined with aramid as well, although in our opinion it is not necessary, as it is at the top front of the Jean and has all the pocket fabric layers and the armour pad already backing that small area of denim.
Although Roadskin always self regulated, most companies making Bike jeans did not ,ie selling part lined Jeans to Fast Bike owners etc, so due to this, European legislation has been enforced, ie: all Motorcycle clothing is being changed from Leisurewear to Protective wear by way of a new CE test pren17092. We are going through the process of putting our products through this CE process, until each product is proclaimed by us as full Ce passed it will continue to be be sold as Leisurewear with no protection claims and when each one passes they will then be sold as protection wear, albeit at a higher price to pay for the CE.
If a product is stated clearly to have a FULL CE approval it is sold as Motorcycle Protective wear. If a product does NOT state a FULL CE approval and only material test passes then it is sold as Durable Leisurewear, NOT as Motorcycle protection wear.
