More about Maximite
Maximite® is a state-of-the art fabric that has achieved the new CE at AA level in one single lightweight but strong layer.
Maximite® allows us to produce lighter, authentic products that are not necessarily record-breaking and therefore heavy, but are comfortable, wearable and responsive to the needs of normal domestic motorcycle riding. The aim is to be strong enough but light enough to be worn comfortably everyday throughout the seasons. Riders can add layers such as jumpers in cold weather. In summer months, the Roadskin® hoodie can be worn with a minimum of layers, making this an economical, all-year round top for easy riding.
Roadskin®'s new Maximite® hoodie for motorbike riders has passed the new CE en17092 physical tests for impact-abrasion and seam-tear tests.
To ensure the elbow armour is in the correct position, grab hold of the cuffs, fully extend your arms, then release. This will ensure the elbow slips into the correct position, if it was not already.
Caring for your Roadskin product
We recommend washing on a cold or cool wash (20° or below), preferably by hand, using a non-biological detergent and then drip drying. DO NOT tumble dry. This helps to maintain the integrity of the cotton or denim, ensuring your product lasts longer. Failure to follow these instructions may result in a weakening of the product.
The Hoodie has a waterproof lining, however we recommend using an additional waterproof spray, such as Fabsil or Nikwax on the outer layer. The waterproof lining is sewn through as an integral part of the garment, so the seams need to be treated after a wash or heavy rain with Fabsil spray or equivalent.
Important information regarding armour
It is very important to wear armour with these products, not just to help protect your bones but also to reduce the impact of the bone against the fabric in the key areas. The fabric is not designed to withstand impact, in the key areas, without armour.
Important information regarding CE testing
Beware of imitations. If a product is clearly stated as having full CE approval then it can be sold as motorcycle protective wear. If a product does not state a full CE approval and only the material has passed the test, then it is sold as durable leisurewear, not motorcycle protection wear.
Although Roadskin has always self-regulated, most companies making bike jeans have not. Due to this, European legislation has been enforced. All motorcycle clothing has now changed from leisurewear to protective wear by way of a new CE TEST PREN17092. All of our motorcycle PPE products have been put through this rigorous testing and the level of protection achieved is outlined on each product.
No product can fully guarantee against all types of injury. What we can guarantee is that we make the best products we possibly can, using the best materials to lessen the possibility.
