The Elite leggings are the most advanced, protective and comfortable in our range, the best of what fabric technology can offer today.
Dyneema has been widely used in the industry for a long time but it’s motorcycle applications are new.
This fabric puts Bowtex at the forefront of technical motorcycle gear.
It is a UHMwPE (Ultra High Molecular weight Poly Ethylene), basically a fiber that cannot be pulled apart because it is so strong.
On a similar weight basis, it is 15 times stronger than steel and 40% stronger than aramid fibers.
On top of it’s protective abilities, it is light and thermo-conductive, meaning that it will help evacuate heat, which is the second biggest advantage compared to other fibers.
We have worked hard with Dyneema® to create a motorcycle garment that will perform well in all riding conditions, with safety and comfort to give you confidence.
Our Elite Leggings made with Dyneema® are:
- Fully elastic thanks to a special knit we developped with Dyneema®
- Super light, making them really easy to slide under a pair of jeans or pants
- Thermoconductive, meaning that heat will be evacuated, for a cool and comfortable ride
- Super strong. Dyneema® is stronger than steel. Incorporating this fabric into our garments make them super abrasion resistant.
In short, comfort, flexibility, resistance and protection.
Base layer : 32% Dyneema® / 68% Nylon
Reinforcements and pockets : 32% Dyneema® / 68% Nylon
Pockets for knee and hip protectors, sold separately.
These leggings are entirely made in Europe, with strong quality control processes. All seams are double sided, triple seam on the elastic, velcro securely attached.
Meaning that they will last and protect you for a long time.
