Why we made them

Dress for the slide so you can enjoy the ride.  Like you, most riders searching for the perfect riding pants give up and decide their everyday jeans are the answer.  Why? 

Because most riding pants have bulky padding, uncomfortable material, are overpriced, and just look bad.  We used to say the same thing until we got burned, literally. Like over 20,000 riders each year in the US, we experienced road rash.

So, we set out to create protective motorcycle pants so stylish, comfortable, versatile, and affordable you’ll never want to take them off.

  • Machine washable.
  • Remove pads before washing.
  • Wash with cold water.
  • No bleach.
  • Hang to dry.
  • Warm iron is OK.
Free shipping & Returns
All purchases come with a 15-day satisfaction guarantee and free ground shipping for all orders over $100. We offer prepaid shipping labels for all returns & exchanges. Because you have enough to worry about. Buy with confidence!

So good!

I've only had these for about two weeks now but I get compliments every time I wear them and they are so comfortable. I think I will end up getting these in every color.


The LTRs are great! But the new LTR with Aramid is second to none! Need to save my pennies, I need every color!

Great pants

Quality and feel was amazing. Unfortunately I have a tiny waist a big butt and thunder thighs and I’m short, so I had to return them. Even ordered a few sizes larger on the waist as I normally have to do with pants

Vicente Yanez
The pants are awesome!!

The pants feel really good, quite comfortable once the right size is selected. My regular jeans are advertised as 30 so I picked NBT size 32 (since these pants tend to run small due the lining and padding), but they were just a bit too tight. I contacted NBT and they helped me with the exchange for the right size without hiccups!

Big note though: try the pants with the tags in case you need an exchange.

I have been riding as much as the weather permits and I love the new pants. Definitely a big change from the regular jeans I was wearing.

One question I got asked was about the padding, if I could feel it and the answer is yes. But it's not uncomfortable, and I got used to it rather fast. Pretty much the same as wearing a jacket with protection pads.

Great Pants!

The good:
These are my first pair of actual riding pants and I've only worn them once so far, but they fit great! They come with the pads and are comfortable and surprisingly ventilated. Even compared to normal jeans, I can feel more air flowing through them.

The not really bad, but don't know what else to say:
The only minor inconveniences were that when I ordered my first set, the main button fell off in my hand without even trying to button it. And the 34s were very tight. I spoke with Nick, the founder of the company, and he fixed the issue immediately. Like same day. He had a new set of 36s sent out ASAP and those fit much better. Just have to wear a belt since the waist is a bit loose.

Main Points:
I'm 5'11" and 215 lbs with a mostly athletic build. The 34s were very tight in the legs to the point were I could barely pull them up. The 34 measurement was accurate in the waist, but the legs were like skinny jeans. This isn't a negative, just be aware when you're ordering. The button was broken but I'm not really worried about it. Nick fixed the issue so quick that I forgot about it.

I'm happy with them, thanks Nick!
