Choosing your right textile jacket and pants needs better materials
There are variety of types and styles of gear in the market most looks good and protected but do they offer the best protection you can get? Is anything missing?
Well.. The hard elbow and shoulder armors or are usually small leaving unprotected section at the sleeve , same with the knee cap protector at pants .The textile fabric in the unprotected areas may tear exposing the rider to risk of road rush and injuries
. The solution: Adding Kevlar ® heat resistant fabric or leather panels onto the unprotected sections. The Kevlar fabric made by Du Pont is lightweight and is being used in many products such as bullet proof vests, brakes, helmets etc. Adding Kevlar in motorcycle clothing combined with the hard armors offer the rider the optimal protection.
Summer heat and humidity
Textile mesh jacket consider a good solution for summer gear But is it the best solution?
Well.. as we know our body cools itself by sweating. Does the nylon mesh dries the sweat? Not really.
The nylon mesh allow wind to get in but sweat stays in between the body and the nylon mesh leaving the rider with uncomfortable feeling .
While other mesh jackets allows air flow to come in using Dry Fit mesh fabric takes it one step further offers excellent evaporation of sweat for much cooler riding in hot and humid weather.
The Dry Fit fabric is used in variety of sport fields and its significant to use it in the motorcycle gear as well.
