Our single layer protective materials use all the same weaving technology. We are combining abrasion resistant fibers in the core and use a cotton elastane cover to create a casual look material with abrasion properties. You can see what kind of fibers we use down here.
Polyethylene can be considered the plastic with the simplest structure. A chain of carbon atoms with only hydrogen on the sides. When this chain is very long, the material is called UMHWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene). UMHWPE is also considered the strongest fibre in the world and is 15 times harder than steel. The material, which comes from space research, gives the denim exceptional abrasion resistance and is ideal for motorcycling or skating. In addition, the fibre is breathable and heat-regulating.
Polyarylate has a very high melting point, which means that it takes a very long time for it to start rubbing off due to heat or abrasion. In addition, polyarylate transmits very little heat. We always use this fibre in combination with a lot of stretch to further increase comfort.
Aromatic polyamide (aramid) was discovered by DuPont in 1965 and developed to market maturity under the name Kevlar®. A lightweight, cut- and puncture-resistant fabric, it is also used for bulletproof vests, fireproof reinforcements or coatings for aircraft engines. At first glance, aramid seems more suitable for superhero costumes than for motorcycle jeans. But what's good for superheroes can't hurt us motorcyclists. Due to its high toughness, tensile strength and low weight, aramid fibres are ideal for all action-packed sports.
Our Riding Pants are completely made of abrasion resistant material and they are officially CE-approved according to the new standard (prEN 17092).
Each thread of our denim contains a core of abrasion-resistant fibre. This abrasion-resistant material is then covered with a classic denim thread. The result is a single-layer motorcycle jeans that is no different from your everyday jeans in terms of style and comfort. Except that you are effectively protected in the event of a crash.
When developing our Riding Pants, we placed great emphasis on comfort. The pants feel like normal everyday jeans. Thanks to the high stretch content, they are also suitable for other sports like skating or BMX. And even on the e-bike, they offer reliable protection in case of falls. And best of all - our RidingPants are not only abrasion-resistant and ultra-comfortable, they also look outrageously good.
The protectors do not fit correctly? No problem! You can adjust the height of the knee protectors in our trousers. This allows perfectly fitting protectors, regardless of individual leg lengths.
