Triumph Hero Riding Jeans are straight cut, 5 pocket blue jeans with a breathable Air-Mesh liner. Hero Riding Jeans come with CE certified to EN 1621-1 2-12 removable and adjustable D30 knee protectors and CE certified D30 hip protectors and ankle restraints. The premium quality 13oz shuttle loom selvedge edge denim is 100% lined with PEKEV abrasion resistant material. PEKEV is an aramid based protective yarn, similar to Kevlar but combined with Polyethylene to make it not only thinner, lighter and stronger but also more durable and more stable than pure aramid materials. Most aramid fibres degrade over time, accelerated by exposure to sunlight, washing, and the general flexing associated with normal wear. PEKEV on the other hand is not affected by UV radiation, bleach, detergents, washing or moisture and has a much greater resistance to wear, meaning prolonged and more reliable performance. Unlike other aramids that retain heat and can make the wearer feel uncomfortable, PEKEV is breathable and has the ability to despel body heat quickly, improving rider comfort. Over 10 years, the scientists behind PEKEV experimented with different spinning techniques and various fibre blends to perfect a yarn with incredible tensile strength which they have dubbed 'the world's strongest polymer'. These yarns are then used to create a dual layer cross knitted protective fabric, which Triumph utilises as a lining material to enhance their riding demin jeans. PEKEV lining is specifically engineered to protect the wearer against impact, abrasions and lacerations in the event of an accident. When tested under EN 13595-1:2002 the lining far exceeded the 7 seconds of abrasion resistance required to gain CE level 2 certification. The dual layer cross knitted structure also makes it exceptionally strong against motion cut.
