'lower rise' MX pants

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a new pair of mx pants... I HATE having my pants up over my belly button, but I like having true MX style (not over boot) pants with a tuck in jersey. I am looking for a pair of MX pants that are lower rising. My problem is I want all the articulation of my legs lol. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

My only suggestion is to either go try them all on in a shop or to go on RMATV.com and read the reviews for the pants and hope someone mentions the rise.

I don't know of any pants like that off the top of my head.

I don't like the high fit either, I went with a size bigger and they fit lower. The only problem might be that they get pulled down a little on acceleration when the 450 is angry. But i think the same would happen in a low rise design :p

I went a size bigger than I normally wear and don't have that problem anymore.

Tryin' to show off your pubes to all of the other dudes at the track?

I wasn't thinking that, but it makes sense. Seriously, I have never had a problem with most riding pants other than they're a PITA to get off after a wet-weather trail ride. For off-road, I wear over the boot enduro pants.

I liked my last riding pants, Thor Cor3 pants. I bought some Oneal Prodigy's online (didn't get to try them on) and I don't like them 'cause I'm fat and my big ass doesn't fit in the space Oneal allocated for it. I have a relatively small waistline compaired to said ass and the Thor Cor3 pants seemed to accomodate my gluteous maximous and I do mean maximous, well.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
