Merlin Rout One Hardy motorcycle jeans have a slim to skinny fit with plenty of stretch so you can move freely. The unique blend of Cordura in the denim makes these more durable that regular jeans.
The entire jean has been CE-Approved to Level A under the new European PPE motorcycle gear standard prEN17092. This gives you piece of mind that these jeans have been rigorously and independently tested for abrasion, burst and impact resistance so riders are protected in the event of a crash.
These slim fit motorcycle jeans are made with genuine Dupont™ Kevlar® fiber twill internal lining at the seat, hip and knee areas. The Merlin Hardy jeans provides abrasion resistance with CE Level 2 rated impact armor included at the knees to help absorb impact energy and provide additional protection. The included CE knee armour is height adjustable and removable.
Pockets at the hips are included for optional CE hip protectors. We recommend our Seesmart RV33 hip protectors as they are lightweight, breathable and barley noticeable once fitted. CE Level 2 removable and height adjustable knee armour is included.

Since 2011, Route One Jeans by Merlin have been a leading brand producing protective motorcycle jeans. In 2019, Route one jeans achieved offical accreditation as an offically recognised and licensed manufacture of protective motorcycle denim by Dupont™.
Further to achieving DuPont accreditation, all Route One jeans by Merlin from 2019 onwards have been crafted using only the dinest denims, accessories and trims to meet or exceed the new CE Standard prEn17092. Macna is a brand that is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the motorcycle apparel industry in Australia. Now that CE-Certification has been extended to garments as a whole, not just the incorporated armour, Route One has responded with a new range of fully CE-Approved apparel.
So, what does all this mean for Australian motorcyclists? Well, basically CE-Certification assesses each garment using a cross section of three tests.
Impact protectors reduce the energy transferred during an impact. The protectors absorb energy in the most exposed areas: the elbows, shoulders, hips and knees. The CE-Certification test also ensures the protectors stay in place in a crash scenario.
An abrasion resistance test measures how long the material(s) used in a motorcycle garment can withstand a slide along a road before being worn away. The CE-Certification for abrasion resistance is scored according to known levels of impact-abrasion risk for different zones of the body and then weighted according to the level of risk.
A burst resistance test measures the level to which a garment remains intact in a crash. CE-Certification scores for burst resistance are biased towards the importance of good quality seams, which endure greater loads in a crash than other areas of a garment.
In summary, this new CE-Certification is designed to give motorcyclists peace of mind when buying apparel – if it’s CE-Certified apparel, it’s been proven to conform to an internationally recognised safety standard and will protect riders in the event of a crash.
How To Get Your Measurments
1) Lay your jeans flat on a table with the button and zipper done up.
2) With band pulled out firmly measure one side to the other using inches or centimetres. Merlin jeans will not shrink, they will give a bit after being worn for a short time so best to start firm.
3) Double the measurement = Your Merlin Jeans waist size.
