Had a small off on the bike, slid down the road, not only did they not get any damage at all! Absolutely no road rash on my arms / legs either.
I have the Taranis jeans and Easyrider hoody. Absolutely fantastic kit and I will be continuing to wear the gear knowing it’s safe. Top rated kit as far as I’m concerned and have recommended to everyone at work already following the accident.Roadskin thank you very much from me and my family!
Story from Kevin:
"So my girlfriend was getting ready to sit her mod 1 test so we went out on a route I knew. We were heading up a twisty B road at 50mph when my bike just went from underneath me. I came down on my left and slid @30m in total. The police measured a diesel spill at between 440-500m. I slid so far I wore through the elbows & a shoulder on my leather jacket. I had a few bumps & bruises but not a mark below the waist. The jeans are slightly frayed on the seam & shiny around the left knee. I was really impressed with how they stood up & wouldn't wear any other brand now. Keep the good kit coming!"
