Bowtex® Frequently Asked Questions

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® fabrics. The STANDARD R is flexible, but not as much as the essential. This slightly rugged aspect is due to its increase of 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 drop.
