BULL-IT 17 RANGE
The Bull-it 17 range is tested to the new standard EN17092 for abrasion resistance (currently in draft): we have the style, fit and protection for you.
The Stealth is the lightest motorcycle jean in the Bull-it range, tested to AA rating for EN17092. The Stealth is a linerless motorcycle jean, incorporating Covec yarns directly into the denim structure itself and armed with Covec's Phantom CE level 2 impact protectors.
The SP120 "LITE" Range is new for 2018, the LITE range incorporates a pure Covec liner in zonal protection zones. The LITE range to tested to AAA rating for EN17092 offering maximum protection for abrasion resistance.
The SP120 "SR6" is our largest range. The SR6 range has an increased liner coverage compared to the LITE range. Tested to AAA rating for abrasion, the SR6 range offers maximum abrasion resistance.
Testing – To Pass testing the garment construction as well as the materials have to achieve performance levels, just 3 of many are; impact abrasion, cut and burst resistance. This will give you peace of mind that the whole garment has been tested and all of the garment is lined with a safety protection liner that offers the highest level of protection.
GREAT INTERNAL COVER OF COVEC™ IMPACT ABRASION PREVENTION LAYER
The Bull-it range consists of three styles of protection, the Stealth which is the lightest in the range, Covec yarn is woven directly into the denim structure to make a very strong Oneskin protective layer, tested to AA. The SP120 Lite range is a light weight jean with a pure Covec protection, lined in the major impact zones (back side, hip, thigh and knee) tested to AAA standard. The SP120 SR6 range offers the most protection, lined from the hips to half way down the shin to allow for the jean to be tucked into a tall boot. The SR6 range is also tested to AAA standard.
The diagram to the right clearly displays the style of protection each line of product offers.
COVEC™ THERMAL BARRIER INSIDE – PREVENTS HEAT TRANSFER FROM ROAD FRICTION
The Covec™ yarn used in our Bull-it products provides low thermal conductivity and a high melting point, preventing additional consequential burns in a crash scenario. Materials with high conductivity and low melting point like UHMWPE are less suitable suitable in situations where heat is produced due to friction.
Any product may incorporate high performance fibers and yarns but its performance will be defined in certain circumstances by the lowest common denominator in any given situation.
MICRO CLIMATE INSIDE – 1MM OF AIRFLOW USING COVEC™ STRUCTURE AND COOL MESH LINER
The 5-layer laminated construction of Covec™ allows for a thermal barrier to extreme weather conditions, in hot weather the heat of the day is held at bay by the natural low thermal performance of Covec™ and the micro-climate created by the channeling in the fabric. This also works in cold weather keeping the body temperature inside the jeans and the cold out.
ARMOUR POCKETS FOR CE EN 1621 APPROVED PROTECTORS.
Covec's™ own CE EN 1621 Approved Impact Protectors for all joints increase the overall level of protection, using the latest impact load spread technology. Covec™ Impact Division has started making it’s own Impact Protectors in early 2014 and is offering a complete package of Impact Protectors for both jeans and jackets.
The CE EN 1621 Approved phantom protectors are delivered in the Stealth range of products as standard, for the LITE and SR6 ranges, limb protectors are optional addition, all products have protector pockets. Our jackets have CE EN 1621 Approved elbow and shoulder protectors as standard, and a large back protector pocket for optional protector.
UV LAMINATE PROTECTOR INSIDE
All materials used in motorcycle clothing will degrade due to UV exposure, some materials degrade faster than others when exposed. You may think that this shouldn't be an issue with lined protective products for example, but UV-Rays will partially penetrate the exterior, slowly degrading the protective material inside. The material should also be kept away from UV-rays while in a washing cycle. The Covec™ laminate provides added UV protection in both scenarios.
SIDE AND REAR SEAM CONSTRUCTION TRIPLE STITCHED
The weak points in garments considering burst resistance are the seams, as the fabrics themselves are generally quite strong, stronger than the seams. You could generally say that when at least triple stitching is used with a fairly high tensile strength yarn the EN 13595-1 Level 2 standard can be passed. Bull-it Jeans uses triple stitching in most seams of their jeans.
THE DENIM AND TWILL BULL-IT JEANS ARE MADE OF
A 20 oz twill or denim is not going to bend and move for most garment uses. A 5 oz twill or denim is not going to provide heavy jeans or jackets. Knowing that twills or denim runs from 5 to 20 oz and that the less the weight, the lighter, softer loft the fabric will have. Bull-it Jeans uses 12oz weights in their jeans and other products for optimal wear comfort while still having a strong and heavy denim. In the ladies jeans we also use stretch denim or twill.
