Every biker knows that in the event of an accident a person must have:

  • Protection against road impact
  • Protection against abrasion
  • Protection against cuts

Pushing the limits of Aramids and Ethylene fibres, we use only the highest quality spinning techniques available. Improving tensile strength and converting them into fabrics using exclusively elite blends we developed a 3rd generation PEKEV fabric - this is one of the strongest and most stable fabrics in the world!

Made from the world's toughest polymer based material, it has the highest breaking point for yarn. The tensile strength of the overall fabric is unsurpassed among all contemporary protection layers. It has the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made, it's highly resistant to corrosive chemicals (with exception of oxidising acids), has extremely low moisture absorption, a very low coefficient of friction, is self-lubricating and is highly resistant to abrasion - in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. It is highly resistant to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV radiation, and micro-organisms.

Our fabric is internationally field tested and ready for the most demanding motorbike riders of the world. Where other brands fail to perform in safety, durability and comfort we excel - wash after wash and drag after drag!

PEKEV features:

  • World's toughest polymer based material, the highest breaking point in yarn
  • With a world beating abrasion resistance of 10.83 seconds, the results of our CE EN13595-1 level 2 testing, you are wearing the results of ten years of research every time you ride out
  • CE rating is for the whole garment, not just the hip and knee protectors
  • Over 200% stronger than KEVLAR, 15 times stronger than carbon steel
  • Dual layer and cross knitting, exceptionally strong against motion cuts
  • Protective lining is 270 GSM, stronger than 550 GSM KEVLAR lining
  • Wash safe - moisture will not affect performance, wash after wash
  • Wicking lining to draw away moisture (body sweat)
  • Disperse body heat quickly, greatly improves riding comfort
  • Soft Inner mesh lining, soft on skin
  • Overall Jeans weigh 0.5 kilos less than our nearest competitor (stronger materials equals less weight)
  • 100% of the jeans are covered with the protection layer, from the top of the waistband to the bottom leg seam
  • No outer armour/pad pocket stitches
  • Includes Knox Flexiform removable hip & knee armour (this is not an additional cost like with many other brands)
  • Highest quality materials and production, up to 20 times more lifespan than other brands


Unlike aramid fabric which degrades quickly PEKEV is strong against:

Ionic enzyme washing. In 90% of cases aramid fibres are treated with ionic enzymes when washing denim, so performance is affected right from the point of manufacturing. Aramids are sensitive to acids. PEKEV is unaffected.

Bleach. Chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) treatment completely destroys the strength of aramid fabrics. PEKEV remains unaffected.

Ultra violet (sunlight to you and me). In strong sunlight, or a high UV environment, aramid fibres degrade and life cycle is reduced. With PEKEV there is no degredation and the fibres are unaffected.

Moisture. Aramid strength is affected by moisture and washing. PEKEV is again not affected.

Detergents. Superior chemical resistance means that the performance of PEKEV is unaffected by these.

Heat dispersion. Most aramid fabrics retain heat and do not breathe PEKEV disperses body heat and is breathable, so keeps you cool comfortable and able to focus even on long runs on sunny days.
