The Royal Enfield X Levi’s 511 Pro motorbike denims are priced at Rs. 6,999
Riding jeans are all the time a snug and handy possibility in Indian climate, and I’ve been utilizing a pair of jeans for nearly all functions, besides observe using, they usually have seen me via some mild off-road work as effectively, with none incident, aside from a number of minor scrapes on the material, however no damage in any respect. The collaboration between Royal Enfield and Levi’s has provided a spread of denims, jackets and casual put on which might double up as motorbike using gear. We’ve been utilizing the Royal Enfield X Levi’s Pro motorbike denims for someday now, to see what they provide, and if they’re nearly as good as they appear like.
Design and Features
At first look, the Royal Enfield X Levi’s X 511s may very well be mistaken for an everyday pair of jeans, aside from a number of delicate variations. The color of the 511s are darkish blue, not your common pale jeans, however there are some telltale indicators that these aren’t your common pair of denims. Visually, there are reflective patches on the underside sideseam, the leather-based patch on the again has the Royal Enfield emblem together with the standard “two horse” Levi’s patch. The waist button additionally has the RE emblem to point that that is very a lot a “RE” collaboration as a lot as a pair of Levi’s.
Comfort and Fit
The RE X Levi’s 511s supply a match just like your common pair of Levi’s, however sure, they ‘really feel’ totally different. Part of that’s because of the textile and building, in addition to the marginally totally different match. I, for one, am not used to carrying tapered, slim match jeans, and though the 511s look good so far as match goes, you may’t put on them over your full-length journey boots, for those who intend to go off-road using in them. Yes, you may definitely tuck the jeans inside your boots if that is comfy for you. With my common every day and touring leather-based using boots, the legs of the jeans slid excessive fairly simply, so sure, you may very simply put on them to work, or for that social do.
Safety and Features
The Royal Enfield X Levi’s 511s are made with Cordura and are stated to be 4 occasions extra sturdy and more durable than common cotton denim. But that should not be the one safety whereas using. The materials could also be abrasion resistant, however the 512s additionally function knee and hip armour pockets. Of course, do remember the fact that the armour must be bought individually. I’ve used every kind of armour, starting from CE-approved and CE-certified Level 2 armours to D30 gentle armour, which in my view, supply one of the best consolation. The 511s additionally supply hip pockets for armour, and also you should not ignore that space, as many riders do. In case of a fall, it is not simply the knees which can be susceptible! Other pockets are your common five-pocket Levi’s denims other than a “special” pocket on the appropriate thigh to retailer your cellphone or different helpful bits, whereas on the trip.
The RE X Levi’s 511 Pro motorbike denims is priced at ₹ 6,999, and is out there on-line on the Royal Enfield digital retailer. You may also go to a Royal Enfield bodily model retailer to take a look at precise colors, and match for those who please. For me, the sizing and match is ideal, and I principally put on Levi’s as my common jeans, and the 511s proved to be of comparable match. Yes, motorbike denims supply a much more comfy expertise, significantly within the Indian summer time, and you need to use them on an on a regular basis foundation, whereas going to work, or meeting up with mates or working errands.
Having stated that, motorbike jeans don’t supply the identical degree of safety as correct textile using pants with superior abrasion resistant materials, for those who’re going touring, or in case of an unlucky high-speed spill. At that worth, the Royal Enfield X Levi’s 511 Pro provides very good worth, and remains to be much more reasonably priced than my common favorite jeans which I’ve been utilizing for a number of years now. But do take into accout, the armour is completely vital, for each knees and hip pockets, and can set you again by something between ₹ 1,500 – 4,000, relying on high quality and model.
