Rokkertech Slim Jean (ROK1060)
Product InformationPlease note: These jeans are a very generous fit. We recommend that you order a size smaller than you would normally take.
The Rokkertech is a brand new jean that really does seem to have hit the ground running, especially given the recent weather. First off, it's a single-layer jean. That means that its strength and abrasion resistance is built into the outer denim. There’s no Kevlar lining; in fact there's no lining at all. The fabric used by Rokker in this jean is called Armalith. It's incredibly strong; pretty much the strongest wearable fabric on the market. In fact, on YouTube there’s a video of a Hummer 4x4 being hoisted by a pair of Armalith jeans. Its abrasion resistance is more than up to what one would call regular riding.
But because there's no lining, the Rokkertechs are incredibly light and easy to wear. We had 20 sample pairs in a few weeks ago, just before we had that mini-heatwave. They all disappeared swiftly to riders desperate to keep cool in the baking conditions.
The other advantage is that the jeans wear and feel just like a regular shop jean. They're much lighter and easier to wear than any lined jean. And whilst we love our lightweight, waterproof Revolution jeans, the Rokkertechs are somewhat softer. Bottom line; if you didn't know these were protective jeans you would simply think they were a regular, high-quality denim pant. Obviously, like the Revolutions, these Rokkertechs take D3O armour in the hips and knees. And, like the Revolutions, they come in different leg lengths, although at present there’s not a 30" leg. That's a pity because, in this market, that’s a common length.
