Ideal for motorcyclists.

Benefits:

  • 7 x double-stitched, oval, specially shaped Spectra® protection panels strategically placed and sewn inside the jeans at the impact areas (thigh, knees, rear etc).
  • Shape and elasticity of the Spectra® ovals reduces the risk of tears and stress.
  • Spectra ® fibre is one of the world's strongest and lightest fibres.
  • 15 x times stronger than steel (pound for pound).
  • 40% greater specific strength than aramid fibre (that is used in other similar garments).
  • Used in different forms, Spectra® fibre is widely used throughout the military and law enforcement community for products such as stab proof vests, bullet-proof vests, helmets, L.A.V.'s (Light Armoured Vehicle Ballistic protection panels) as well as in sails, fishing lines, cut resistant search gloves etc.

Features:

  • Heavy-duty YKK zips on fly.
  • Double belt loop at centre of rear for a belt - useful when riding a motorbike.
  • Trousers are shaped higher at the back to prevent exposure.

  • Colour: Available in Blue only.

The Spectra® fibre:

Spectra® fibre is one of the world's strongest and lightest fibres. Consisting of a bright white polyethylene, it is, pound-for-pound, fifteen times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester and has a specific strength 40% greater than aramid fibre (Kevlar).

A polyethylene fibre, Spectra® fibre, is produced via a patented gel spinning process. Polyethylene is an incredibly durable plastic, and scientists at Honeywell have captured its natural strength in the molecular backbone of this everyday plastic, to create one of the world's strongest and lightest fibres.

The gel spinning process and subsequent drawing steps, allow Spectra® fibre to have a much higher melting temperature (150c or 300f) than standard polyethylene.

With outstanding toughness and extraordinary viscoelastic properties, Spectra® fibre can withstand high-load strain-rate velocities.

Light enough to float, it also exhibits high resistance to chemicals, water and ultraviolet light.

It has excellent vibration damping, flex fatigue and internal fibre-friction characteristics.

Spectra® fibre's low dielectric constant makes it virtually transparent to radar.

Spectra® fibre is used in numerous high performance applications, including police and military ballistic-resistant vests, helmets and armoured vehicles, as well as sailcloth, fishing lines, marine cordage, lifting slings, cut-resistant gloves and apparel.

Honeywell also converts Spectra® fibre into the spectra Shield family of speciality composites for armour and other applications.

  1. Cooler than kevlar

    Posted by Sally McMahon on 11th Nov 2012

    They look like 'normal' jeans. A lot lighter & cooler to wear than my Draggin Jeans, which is great for Perth's weather. Very comfy, I love them!
