Pretty good, not too sure if they are any better than Fox 360 but they should do.
Wear them extra padded shorts and stuff if you really need the xtra protection.
Also see your budget, if you have any that is.
Style any factor?

You really have no problem, most brands have a top of the line pants ilke the Fox 360 and the
No Fear *forgot their top of the line pants
You can just surf their site and look for their specials.
When the season runs out, you get them a way better price,
sometimes you get a jersey + pant + glove for the price of the same pants thats in season now.
Plus with the money you save, you could get some pads and stuff.
Check it out.
i'll see if i got the links to the sites for you.

I recommend getting the top of the line of whatever brand you choose; they should last longer. I'm tall and thin (at least I want to think so) and the Thor's fit me better than some other brands.

Not all pants have the strecthability or the cutting that others may have.
Also the advice on getting your braces with you when you make your purchase is good.
You wouldn't want to spend more time choosing the pants than spending time in the, riding.
If you want, search e-bay for the type you're looking for.
Some guys who do not go to TT are there selling their stuff cos they got injured before they got to use their stuff.
Some good stuff if you're lucky and they can be slightly used or new with tags (NWT)
Some are sold in sets like i mentioend earlier.
Good luck in finding the right pair..

I'm seriously considering a pair but since I am going to buy online then Im not sure about knee room (I dont wear braces) and durability. They look nice because they are pretty much one solid color whick I like and the price on them is very reasonable.
Any input on these pants?

The new fox and Thor stuff look great. Even AXO is on the move again. I think they're on a big come back and you'll see more top riders wearing AXO stuff.
This might sound a little silly but I try to buy products made by company's that really support our sport. Why should I buy products from LBZ or SMP when you have company's like Fox,Thor,Moose,MSR,Acerbis,O'neal,Answer and Troy Lee etc... I would much rather them get my business. Just my .02
