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 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 😉
