Kevlar motorcycle leggings can no longer be ignored from the street scene. Completely hard-wearing and with a skinny fit that the style-conscious biker craves. Or the Bowtex leggings with which you can transform any jeans into motorcycle jeans.
In recent years, the demand for Motorleggings has grown enormously and the supply is also slowly but surely starting to increase. Female motorcyclists in particular show an interest in this new development in motorcycle clothing. The advantage of motorcycle leggings is that they can be worn under normal jeans as long as they offer space for knee and / or hip protectors. More and more thicker motorcycle leggings are being developed that can be worn separately, these leggings almost always have a very flattering fit. The Kevlar is often used on the seat, around the hips, in the side seams and on the knees. In some cases, the leggings are even fully lined or interwoven with an abrasion resistant fiber. To find out to what extent the laying is protected, it is best to take it inside out. The color of the kevlar panels often clearly shows to what extent the leggings offer protection.
Kevlar is an aramid complex consisting of a combination of a wear-resistant and a heat-resistant fiber. The way these fibers are interwoven gives Kevlar its exceptionally abrasion resistant property. The loops created during interweaving, in case of tension such as in an accident, overlap, forming a wear-resistant layer.
The motorcycle leggings are in all cases prepared for protectors. In some cases the knee and / or hip protectors are included in the price. Because the motorcycle leggings look like normal leggings, they can be worn next to the motorcycle. No one will notice that you just got off the bike. Motorcycle leggings are generally suitable for summer weather, but with regular jeans you will also get through the spring and autumn well.
Maintenance Kevlar leggings
If the leggings have protectors, these should be removed before washing. We recommend that you wash the leggings inside out and separately, just like any other new garment, in case the leggings run off. Often a cold wash (30 degrees) is recommended, but check the label of the leggings to be sure. Hang the leggings on the hip belt to dry, we do not recommend drying in a dryer.
