Defend Kevlar Pant

Pull on the Fox Racing Defend Kevlar Pant before you hit the lifts for some all-out downhill madness. Constructed from an all-way stretch fabric with tough Kevlar reinforcements at the knee, these pants let you move freely on the bike while ensuring you stay protected when you're riding the unruliest trails on the mountain. The tapered lower leg prevents the pants from snagging in your drivetrain when you're pedaling into a big jump, while laser perforations on the front and back provide cooling airflow on long summer shred days. The ratchet waist closure provides a secure fit and quick on-the-fly adjustments, and the pants are finished with a Durable Water Resistant treatment that sheds moisture, dirt, and debris.

  • Tough riding pants for gravity runs and park days
  • All-way stretch fabric for optimal freedom of movement
  • Kevlar reinforcements resist tearing and abrasion
  • Tapered leg won't interfere with pedaling
  • Laser perforations provide cooling airflow
  • Two zippered pockets for carrying ride essentials
  • Secure ratchet closure allows a micro-adjustable fit
  • DWR finish sheds moisture, dirt, and debris

Not as durable as they claim

I loved these pants, but I recently split them open near my right thigh with a huge gash. They are not nearly as durable as they claim. The best riding pants I have owned to date, but they tear pretty easily. I am disappointed as the pants are pricey, and I only used them for 4 months before this tear happened. I did not crash, but must have snagged them on a tree branch. I have been riding for many years and I have never had this happen with other pants/shorts. I used them every ride but time to look for something else.


Looks like it's time to patch those up and get em back in the rotation

Excellent protection. Size is spot on.

I purchased these pants 2 months ago and wear them on nearly every ride now. Fit is perfect and comfortable around the waist- I wear medium or size 32 in just about everything and these were no different. 32 was spot on. The ratchet adjustment allows for some play about 1 or so inches. I generally wear a bib underneath. They are roomy in the thighs and knees, plenty of room for pads while not constricting or excessive. I've had a few minor crashes and slides- the material has held up perfectly although no major crashes yet... hopefully I won't test that out. I have ridden them in 90+ heat and they get a little sweaty despite the good laser cut holes below 80 is preferable (when isn't it). I have ridden them in 40 degree mornings and they are warm enough keeping the wind off. Over all: love these and want to get another pair. Highly recommend.

Great Pants, Sizing is misleading

I returned this product before using it

These are great pants by Fox. For being Kevlar reenforced they are very lightweight, breathable, and have great mobility. Unfortunately the sizing is confusing. A numeric size 34 has a 36 inch waist. It looks like there'd be a little room to cinch them down with the waist buckle, but not enough to make them the size they're labeled as. I returned them.
