SPIDI J & DYNEEMA JEANS REVIEW
A NEW SINGLE-LAYER JEAN WITH A 4.1 SECOND SLIDE TIME

 

The material used in the jean is called Dyneema. Now, Dyneema is a brand of UHMWPE (ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene). It is known as the strongest, most durable, lightweight fibre in the world. It is 15 times stronger than carbon steel, yet so light it floats on water.

In the Spidi jean, it is infused with a little elastic to make a trouser that is abrasion resistant, lightweight and easy to ride in. The fit is best described as slim. The jean comSPIDI-J-and-DYNEEMA-JEANS-BACK.jpg.jpeges fitted with CE approved knee protectors, and it meets the new, yet-to-be-confirmed CE standard at what is called the AA standard (A is the least protective, AAA is the most).

But Spidi has shared with us its test certificates for the fabric used in these jeans when tested under the existing EN 13595 standard. It is this standard that give us a ‘slide-time’ for a fabric, and on the J&Dyneema jean, that slide time is an impressive 4.1 seconds. That puts the jeans pretty close to a leather trouser. And at just £279.99, we think they offer amazing value.
