The vast majority of DH gear began as moto gear, and over time various features (like leather inner thighs) were stripped in an effort to make them lighter and more directly applicable to DH. We still see those moto roots today in many of the designs.

Personally, I can't see going back after wearing the Demo Pro pants. The freedom of movement and ventilation they allow is excellent, though there is of course a tradeoff. Knee pads serve as a more robust/reliable form of protection under the pants, while the pants themselves have a fabric that's durable enough to withstand crashes without being overly thick and restrictive. Just like a lot of outdoor apparel has advanced over the years to produce lighter and more flexible fabrics that still hold up, I think Specialized has found a better solution for mountain bikers.

Don't forget the angles as well. The Breezer has some dated angles thanks to Joe Breeze.
He is a good guy, but not exactly on the same page as modern trail bike geo.

This one is more slackerer which means more betterer!

Unreal. Angel crashes. Doesn't remember the crash and they start looking at his hand?! Obviously no idea how much more diagnostic stuff they did but sure looks like there wasn't much attention to something far bigger...

Seriously, someone needs to raise the concussion question as these events. Culturally, it has to get a bit more attention and understanding from everyone involved.
