I thoroughly tested the Klim K Fifty 2 motorcycle riding jeans during a recent 9-day motorcycle trip to Sturgis 2020, the 80th Anniversary. I rode 3200 miles in them and rode in temperatures ranging from 50 degrees to 100+ degrees. (see video below for full review)
There is only one difference between the Klim K Fifty 2 jeans and the Klim K Fifty 1 jeans and that is the cut. The K Fifty 2's are a classic straight leg cut jean and fit like a Levi's 501. The K Fifty 1 jeans are a looser baggier cut. These riding jeans are stylish and overall performed very well. I love the fact that these sorts of motorcycle riding jeans are protective and functional both on and off the bike.
I actually tested multiple motorcycle riding gear items on this trip and will be reviewing each one on our YouTube channel so make sure you're subscribed so you know when those videos release! You can see all the gear items I'll be reviewing in my gear overview video here!

Klim K Fifty 1 & 2 Motorcycle Riding Jeans
Klim K Fifty 1 & 2 Jeans deliver abrasion resistance, impact coverage and style. Heavy-duty Cordura denim is backed by DuPont™ Kevlar® panels to keep the pavement from coming through. D3O EVO knee and hip armor provide CE level impact protection rounded out by Poron XRDA at the tailbone. All these protective features are cleverly hidden within the pant. The Klim K Fifty 1 & 2 jeans lack any telling seam on the outside of the pants that would hint that these jeans are designed to protect motorcyclists.
