MATERIALS

AMARA

Synthetic leather made of 60% polyamide and 40% polyurethane, which is weatherproof, soft, and comfortable. Also offers excellent grip and is therefore often used on the palms of gloves.

COOL SYSTEM

It allows dark textiles to reflect solar radiation (heat) in the same way as lighter textile would to therefore keep the rider more comfortable and increase lifespan of the garment.

HIPORA

Polyurethane or polyester based material designed to create a protective barrier against the elements, while allowing moisture to escape from within. Seams are welded with a special heat sealed tape to ensure no water can penetrate from outside.

KANGAROO LEATHER

Of the 48 species of kangaroo, many are protected. However the unchecked reproduction of largest breed has resulted in massive over-population and culls are therefore carried out under the supervision of the Australian government. Fortunately for motoryclists, the hides make excellent rider equipment. Kangaroo hide is far more abrasion resistant than cowhide of the same thickness. This is because, unlike cows, kangaroos only sweat through their tail and therefore there are no pores in the hide. Kangaroo garments can therefore be lighter and provide more ‘feel’. Special tanning and drying methods mean kangaroo hide is resistant to moisture and so is less likely to loose its shape or degrade over time.

KEPROTEC

Another space-age material from Schoeller. It offers outstanding abrasion protection, tear resistance, temperature resistance, higher comfort level and is ideal for reinforcing high-risk areas on a variety of garments.

LEATHER

The traditional ‘go-to’ material for motorcyclists. While often not as practical or adaptable as textiles, leather still leads the way in abrasion resistance and, with the right care, is extremely durable. Leather garments should be fitted as tight as possible in order to firmly hold protectors in place. With wear, leather garments ‘break in’ and mould to the body.

REISSA

Polyurethane or polyester based material designed to create a protective barrier against the elements, while allowing moisture to escape from within. Seams are welded with a special heat sealed tape to ensure no water can penetrate from the outside. Special materials and tightly regulated manufacturing guidelines make climate membranes extremely durable and flexible.

SAS TEC - BODY PROTECTION SYSTEM

PLUS Racing Gear uses SAS TEC protectors at critical areas of all high end garments such as shoulders, elbows, knees and back. SAS TEC protectors offer high absorbability despite low density. Contrary to hard shell protectors, SAS TEC foam reacts promptly and without any time delay even to minor impacts.

SAFETY SEAMS

PLUS Racing Gear uses triple-stitched safety seams at critical areas such as shoulders, arms, hips, knees and back. Two seams are used – one of which is covered by folded material – so that the garment is far more likely to hold together when the outer seams are exposed to abrasion in the event of a fall.

STINGRAY LEATHER

The most abrasion resistant material that is pliant enough to be used in the manufacturing of gloves. It is backed with shock absorbing gel pads in order to allow fallen riders to slide more easily with less chance of fractured limbs cause by rolling.

SOFT SHELL

A Highly breathable stretch material, which is elastic, lightweight, warm and flexible. Outer shell has a water resistant coating, while the inner has a soft fleece lining which absorbs moisture and wicks it away from the body.

SUPERFABRIC

A mix of 32% polyester and 68% epoxy resin creates a super-tough material which offers full flexibility as well as extremely high cut and abrasion resistance. PLUS Racing Gear uses Superfabric to reinforce crash zones on certain garments and gloves.

TFL COOL LEATHER

Revolutionary treatment for black leather which helps it reflect solar radiation in the same way that white leather would, keeping the surface up to 20°C cooler and the wearer up to 12°C cooler, without the impracticality of wearing light colours. The improved UV resistance of TFL COOL™ leather also increases the garment’s lifespan. TFL COOL™ items should only be treated with transparent dubbin, as described in the garment care instructions.

THINSULATE

The unique microfibres of Thinsulate Insulation are about ten times smaller than the fibres of other synthetic insulations, which means they‘re much more efficient at trapping air...and much more effective at keeping you warm. It also means we can pack many more of them into the same space, where they reflect back more of your body‘s radiant heat.
