Arrow Which pants or jeans (or whatever) to battle the 1299 heat?

Couple years ago I test rode a new demo 1299 about this time of year. I was locked-in to buy one until after 20-mins into the ride. I turned that bike around and returned it. The engine/exhaust heat was crazy! I decided not to buy a Pani, and opted for a nice 1198SP instead. The 1198 is a great bike, and I never experienced the heat issues.

So now I am reconsidering a '16-'17 1299S, but looking for the right pants (other than leathers) to battle the heat. I will be looking for a "used" bike that will most likely already have the aftermarket upgrades to significantly help combat the heat issues.

So is there a "brand" of pants on the market designed to battle heat? Or are you guys coming up with your own solutions of wearing your pants with a 2nd layer or layers underneath to help battle getting your nuts, inner thighs and ass completely roasted?

I know you say anything but leather but it’s the easiest option also you don’t have to go with a full race pair as long as they are thick enough and have some effective form of armour, also if you crash (remembering superbike road riding is inherently dangerous) your legs and hips will thank you.

When you buy that bike with all the "aftermarket upgrades" tell the rest of us what they are. From the 6 years I have been on this forum I have not seen any heat solution. Airflow at speed and leathers is the only thing that works. IMHO.

Other than track pants, Revit gear2 (now called ignition 3)I believe) are great and vent well.
I also have a pair of Alpinestars Ramjet pants.
Riding fast helps also.

I have the ReVit Ignition leather pants, no roasted nuts or thighs when I ride my 1299S wearing them. Also have ReVit riding jeans that also work pretty well, they are double layer with kevlar (near the parts that get hot) and that stops the heat too.

I agree with most of the comments here. I can't really ride mine in jeans of any kind unless it is at consistent high speed.

Cheers

Guys thanks for the information on the pants. Greatly appreciated. I'll definitely look into the ReVit stuff! Hopefully cycle gear carries them so I can at least try them on before I swipe the card. I hate returning shit because it doesn't fit. Thank you!

Use the chart sizing file they have. It’s pretty accurate. Measure you waist and inseam. Don’t guess at it. If you like a looser feel go to the next size.

I just wear long-johns underneath my jeans. Works well for me. Sometimes I feel the heat in stop and go, but it's not unbearable by any means. Also I try to stay away from that kind of riding as much as possible.
