Note About Shipping: Items that show an availability of “Same Day” are physically located in our Lubbock TX warehouse and will ship on the same day as ordered if you order by 2 p.m. central on a weekday (or the next working day if ordered after 2 p.m central.)
Items showing “3-5 Days” will ship as soon as we receive the item from the Dainese US distribution system which can range from one to four weeks. The Dainese US distributor relies on inventory in their US warehouse as well as inventory overseas. Unfortunately their system is not capable of giving us a more accurate real-time estimate . If you are concerned about the shipping time on any particular item showing “3-5 Day” availability, please reach us using the Customer Service link here on our website, otherwise, we’ll assume you are OK with the longer time frame for delivery.

We measured a selection of sizes in this pant and developed the chart below to help you choose a size. We show a range for the waist size to account for the Velcro adjustable waist. The top of the range is with the adjusters fully open, so they don’t get bigger.
The measured inseam is listed below. In a sport/race pant like this, the pant is designed to only reach the top of the foot so the inseam measures out shorter than regular pants or jeans. If you subtract about 2” from your regular inseam in jeans, you can get an idea of what inseam you’d shoot for in a track pant like this. Most people will be tucking the pant inside boots so the exact inseam length won’t be critical, but you have to be in the ball park because the knee armor needs to line up with your knee, so you can’t be too tall or too short as compared to the inseam on the pant.
Our Two Cents
The Assen sport pant comes in two versions… perforated and solid. The solid one is sold on this product page… take the link below to view the perforated version. There is a visual difference of course, but functionally, the perforated pants will breathe a bit better for warmer weather use and the solid jacket will be better for cooler/cold weather since the solid leather will block air flow and allow your undergarments to keep you warmer.
The Assen leather pant is a classic styled sport pant. It is highly “pre-cut to be comfortable in the sport/tuck position. The legs are tapered to the ankle and cut to reach the top of the foot (see our sizing advice above). The waist is adjustable with Velcro tabs and the pants have a full around zipper to attach to Dainese jacket with the mating zipper. You can wear these pants with any jacket, but the zipper setup is only designed to work with Dainese jackets.
You notice the large expansion panels above the knee. The expansion panels allow for freedom of movement that wouldn’t be possible in a highly fitted sport pant style. Same goes for the stretch panels incorporated into the crotch area and down the insides of the legs. The material is abrasion resistant and tough, but also has some stretch. The waist is cut low in the front and higher in the back, again, to work best in a tuck position.
The knees come fitted with very robust knee shin armor and the hips are fitted with pockets for optional hip armor (see the link below). The pants also have Velcro for knees. The pants come with leather patches affixed over the knee slider Velcro so you can have a finished look without knee sliders. But if you want to add sliders, you remove the leather patches and stick on the sliders of your choice (they don’t have to be Dainese).
Overall, these pants are the very high quality you find with Dainese products. :: Paul, 09-17-18
Dainese says: Combining lightweight, high mobility and a comfy sport fit with certified protection, these pants are engineered for great road riding. Tough Charge leather with perforated cooling zones (perforated versions only) integrates with S1 elasticated fabric panels and inserts for great performance support, plus hip adjusters, calf zips and dedicated men’s and women’s versions for a closer fit. The multiple safety features include leather knee patches designed for Pista sliders and pockets for hip protectors. Let the rider decide.
