LAYERS ON LAYERS

WEAR LAYERS OF CLOTHING FOR THE GREATEST COMFORT

To get the best out of functional clothing, it is important to dress properly from the body outwards. We recommend the layer principle:

LAYER 1

You should wear polyester or wool closest to the body, or wool with Outlast®. It wicks away moisture and keeps you warm and dry. Avoid cotton as it absorbs moisture and will cool you down. Our underwear is also available in ventilated mesh for hot weather and in a range of wool weights and Windstopper for those really cold days.

LAYER 2

Because the intermediate layer should insulate and regulate temperature, use fleece, polyester or wool. Avoid cotton here, too. We recommend a garment that balances temperature and counteracts sweating. In really warm weather, you can skip the intermediate layer.

LAYER 3

This layer protects you from wind and water while completing the wicking of moisture away from the body. We recommend jackets and pants that use membranes.

LAYER 4

In the most extreme wet and cold conditions, consider adding a fourth outer shell to protect from wind chill or wetting out of products. Once a jacket becomes wet on the outside, heat is lost quickly and the effects of wind chill become greater even when still dry on the inside. Use our WP jacket and trousers or WP suit as a perfect fourth layer. Add covers for gloves and footwear.

A BLUEPRINT FOR SAFETY AND COMFORT

HI-ART

OUR INVENTION MAKES LIFE SAFER ON THE ROAD

Sometimes the unthinkable happens. It can happen to anyone. Because it’s important to have clothing that can handle the fall when an accident happens, the majority of our garments are reinforced with HI-ART® in vulnerable areas. HI-ART® is our very own invention; it makes leather more than 200 per cent stronger and textiles more than 500 per cent stronger. Protection and assurance we alone can offer. By turning fabric threads to face outward in the form of small loops, friction works against the short ends of the fibres. It’s like cutting a piece of wood; it’s much harder to cut with the grain. Your safety is incredibly important to us, and thanks to HI-ART® we’re able to make an enormous difference when it comes to safety on the road. Bike wear from us is assurance for you. Today, tomorrow and for many years to come.

BENEATH THE SURFACE

Hover the icons to see additional information about the different layers in our products.

LINING

Closest to the body is a lining, sewn-in or removable. Usually made from ventilated mesh, temperature-regulating Outlast® or warm, quilted lining.

AIR MESH

We always use Air Mesh behind armour for better comfort

MEMBRANE

Some garments also have a sewn-in or removable membrane. Taped seams, naturally.

ARMOUR

Garments that use armour have velcro sewn into them to keep the armour in place and for ease of adjustment.

HI-ART

This is where HI-ART® is located in our garments. Our proprietary material makes garments incredibly resistent to wear, and is used in most of our products.

OUTER FABRIC

The outer fabric is leather or textile with various types of surface treatment.

SEAMS

We choose thread to suit the material to make seams as strong as possible. We use Triple Stitch in vulnerable areas of our leather wear.
