Why Kevlar is Used in Motorcycle Jeans & Biker Gear
Kevlar is an amazing material that has been used for a variety of purposes. It is used in protective clothing such as jeans and jackets for motorcyclists, and is also known for its use in battle helmets and bulletproof vests. Kevlar is a man-made material that was invented by Stephanie Kwolek who worked for DuPont at the time, and filed a patent for it in 1966.
Kevlar is a synthetic material that is extremely lightweight, yet several times stronger than metals such as steel. It has a number of benefits. It does not rust, corrode, and is completely flame resistant. It can be immersed in water without being affected, and does not melt. It has high chemical resistance, while being light in weight. These properties make it an amazing, versatile material that can be used for everything from clothing to building materials.
This man-made material is a wonderful asset to motorcyclists. This is because it is incorporated into clothing specifically made for bikers. Kevlar is integrated into products such as motorcycle jeans, in order to protect riders on the road. The knees, legs, and other areas of the body need to be protected in the event of an accident, and can benefit from the strength and weight that Kevlar can provide. This can protect the riders from skin abrasions if they were to fall and slide along the asphalt. When used in conjunction with DOT labeled helmets, riding jackets, gloves, and quality boots, riders can improve their chances of surviving crashes and accidents.
Kevlar is a revolutionary material that has a variety of uses, and The Bikers’ Den is proud to offer Kevlar protective clothing (including Sartso Motorcycle Jeans) for customers who want the best protection around.
