The iXS Cassidy II jean is the perfect match for those who prefer to be a bit more discrete while on two wheels. Made from finely woven, heavy-duty 100-percent jean material, the Cassidy II pant also features 100-percent Aramid protection in the seat, thigh, knee and hip areas.The Cassidy II is a simple, straight-forward, five-pocket jean that is available for both men and women in a wide range of sizes. With a stone wash, the jean are inline with the styling of street wear. A simple button clasp and zipper rounds out the features in that department.
When it comes to hard protection, the Cassidy II has you covered with some height adjustable knee protector that are in accordance with EN1621-1. There is initially a bit of wiggle room around the knee protection, but once you mold them to the shape of your knee, they stay put well. The knee protectors also drop down and cover a decent portion of your shin, and stop where a set of boots would begin.Additionally, the iXS Cassidy II features two hip protection pockets. But if you’d like protection in those pockets, you’ll need to find something on your own.The cut and fit is that of a traditional straight leg jean. The iXS Cassidy II is a bit baggier in the calves – by no means is this a skinny jean. Boots with high protection clauses that cover the shin can easily fit under the pant leg.What you see is what you get – rock solid, no frills jean with good protection features made out of high quality material. iXS’s MSRP begins at $439 USD.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
