Es mejor colocar los protectores de rodilla no demasiado altos en las piernas, ya que los pantalones o mallas se subirán al sentarse en la bicicleta. Asegúrese de que la parte superior del protector cubra su rótula cuando sus piernas estén dobladas. Está bien si se deslizan un poco hacia abajo al ponerse de pie.

Absolutamente. Tanto las mallas Essential como las Standard R están diseñadas para permitir el máximo flujo de aire mientras se conduce. Los leggings Essential están confeccionados con una mezcla de fibras de aramida y poliamida que permite que el aire fluya a través del tejido. El Standard R ofrece una comodidad de conducción excepcional y transpirabilidad en verano gracias a su construcción X-Panel. Úselo solo durante el verano o deslícelo debajo de un par de jeans o pantalones cuando baje el Celsius. La camiseta Standard R está fabricada con nuestra poliamida de alta densidad en la parte delantera que permite que el aire fluya a través de un gran compromiso entre seguridad y comodidad.

You can wear them under any trousers, even slim jeans! The Bowtex® gear is slim and designed to be worn under your regular garments.
The 2021 collection has been entirely redesigned thanks to the numerous customer reviews we have received over the years. It is also CE certified by an independent laboratory. The new collection also comes with impact protectors already placed in. And as usual, we have drag-tested both the previous and the current collection!
The Bowtex® leggings are lighter than conventional motorcycle gear, they fold easily into a small backpack or in a helmet! Depending on the size, they weight between 700gr and 1kg protectors included.
Yes, we designed them for that! We use a unique High-Density-Polyamide fabric which is soft against the skin and keeps moisture away, just like a pair of high-end sports leggings.
The ESSENTIAL is best for the city, it delivers good breathability and has pleasant skin contact. It feels good even at low speed thank to the Coolmax® fabric. The STANDARD R is flexible, but not as much as the essential. This slightly rugged aspect is due to its increase of Dupont™ Kevlar® fabric. The STANDARD R also breathes well thanks to the unique X-panels construction, but to have incoming air, you will need to be on the move. This makes the STANDARD R the perfect companion on road trips: wear it on its own during summer and under any pair of trousers when the Celcius drops.
The Bowtex® gear is extremely versatile, you can wear them from the heat of the summer to the cold of a snowy winter, under a pair of weatherproof trousers for example. The STANDARD R is specifically designed to be worn on its own in the hottest days of the summer thanks to its unique X-panels construction that allows for maximum airflow in movement.
100% ! All our components are manufactured in Western Europe in countries such as Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, etc. The prototyping is done by us in Brussels and the main production is done in our atelier in Portugal. We usually ship directly from Brussels.
Of course you can wash your Bowtex®! Machine wash 30°C, light iron, line dry. To avoid discoloration, do not leave in direct sunlight. Don’t forget to remove the protectors before washing.
We choose breathability over water resistance: simply wear you rain gear over them!
Aramid fibers such as the one from Dupont™ Kevlar® is yellow in its “natural” form. We decided to keep it this way on the Essential leggings as this color makes them pop out! In any case, you are going to be wearing them under your trousers.
We prefer to meet riders in real life during meetings or shows. You can drop us an email on our contact page. We apologize in advance if we don’t answer your DM on Instagram: we have a lot of similar enquiries!
These things happens sometimes but don’t worry the Bowtex® leggings have a very stretchy front panel which makes it easy to pull them down 😉
