Seven reasons why the Easyrider is the Best Single Skin Jean of its type on the market.
1. Fibres used:
We can use any super strong fibre on the market, they are all available but because Tensile Strength is only one of the requirements needed for the best motorcycle jean, abrasion resistance and friction heat resistance are also important, there was a more subtle and practical reason for choosing aramid. This is may be why most of the military still use aramid or the best known brand of aramid, Kevlar® which we use. In our real life experience and in-house tests, aramid, when mixed with cotton, in the correct way, still makes the best single skin material.
2. Material Structure:
You are only as strong as your weakest link , if you weave a wire into a woolly jumper, it doesn’t make the jumper stronger, as the wire is being held by a weaker structure. You have to be careful when assuming that just because a strong fibre is mixed with another fibre like cotton that, that automatically makes it all stronger. It is entirely subject to how the strong fibre is added. That is why this fabric breezed through the CE test for abrasion and tear with ease. More importantly, this is NOT a part lined product, with weak areas, to burst open, It is the same strength everywhere, the entire material is reinforced with aramid, even the pockets, everywhere you see denim, it has been reinforced, as the denim actually contains 40% aramid inside it.
3. SARS System:
Official Personal Protection Advisers recommended that single skin jeans and trousers should have some kind of barrier between the skin and the outer fabric, to create a Skin Abrasion Reduction System (aka SARS). This reduces the chance of the single outer fabric damaging the wearers skin on impact. The problem is that certain companies making single skin motorcycle products seem to either not know this, because their designers are either not experienced Bikers and so do not know practical things like this, or just ignored it. So watch what you buy. All products at Roadskin are designed by a Biker of forty years on the road and a fathers 75 years of knowledge passed on. So we already knew that this single skin jean would need a system to help protect the skin. We have integrated a very light, strong, smooth mesh to the inside of the jean to act as a barrier between the skin and the reinforced denim. The fine strong mesh also backs up the reinforced denim to give it an even higher tensile strength. The SARS system has no guarantee against skin burn or injury but it is surely a lot better to have it in place than not.
