Cortech announced the release of two new jeans products, The Primary and The Standard.
“The Primary” jean is constructed of a special single-layer fabric consisting of a blend of DuPont Kevlar, Cordura nylon and cotton denim, resulting in a jean that does not have the bulk of an additional sewn-in Kevlar liner. In strength testing, the fabric demonstrated up to a 200 percent higher tear strength than standard cotton denim and an estimated 500 percent increase in abrasion resistance compared to standard cotton denim.
The Standard jean is assembled using high-strength contrast polyester thread and features a two-layer construction, consisting of a 14-ounce cotton denim exterior and waist-to-shin 165GSM lining made with Kevlar fiber.
“Our Cortech team has been dedicated to producing high-quality, performance-enhancing motorcycle apparel and gear since 1999, and these jeans are no exception,” said Bob Miller, co-owner of Helmet House Inc. “We pride ourselves on our product and both offerings have met excellent standards in testing. We’re proud to be able to offer these jeans at affordable price points in the market and look forward to releasing even more new apparel and gear in what’s shaping up to be an exciting 2019 for Cortech.”
Competitively priced at $199.99 and $124.99 respectively, both jeans feature a relaxed fit in the seat and thigh ideal for riding, straight-cut legs, and the option for knee and hip SAS-TEC armor inserts. SAS-TEC armor offers progressive absorption that enables the armor to reduce the transmittance of impact energy to the body and it can be purchased separately for extra protection. Riders will have the option to purchase SAS-TEC armor (sold in pairs), which will be available in spring 2019.
Both The Primary and The Standard jeans will be available in February 2019.
