Stop paying over $300 for your motorcycle jeans. Here at NBT we believe you shouldn't have to choose between safety and looking good. That's why we designed our License to Ride Pants to be the holy trinity of protection, style, and affordability. 

Why we made them

Riding pants aren't created equal. Like you, most riders searching for the perfect riding pants give up and decide their everyday jeans are the answer.  Why? Because riding pants have bulky padding, uncomfortable material, overpriced, and just look bad.
We used to say the same thing until we got burned, literally. Like over 20,000 riders each year, we experienced road rash.

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


Our premium 11-ounce denim is blended with polyester to keep you cool and 3% spandex to add flex in all the right places.

  • Road Rash Resistant
  • CE approved Removable knee & hip protectors included
  • Slim straight fit
  • Elastic accordion panels on knees & lower back
  • Cargo Flap Pockets
  • Light Herringbone pattern
  • YKK® Zipper
  • 70% Cotton, 28% Polyester, 2% Spandex
  • Machine washable.
  • Remove pads before washing.
  • Wash with cold water.
  • No bleach.
  • Hang to dry.
  • Warm iron is OK.

Measure across the widest part of the hip. Multiply this number by 2.


Measure across the pant leg 1” down from the crotch. Make sure the tape is parallel to the hem of the pant. Multiply this number by 2.

Not for short riders

If you think you can just hem long pants, you can't.
The knee guards ends up being shin guards. I am 5'6". The pants is definitely for taller folks.

Quality seem to be good enough but it is cheaper for a reason. I would suggest spending a little more for cavalier coverage inside the pants.
