The original trusted by riders since 2015.
Best for Autumn/Winter
An evolution of the classic Essential, much cooler on the skin thanks to Dyneema/Spandex fabric. The most lightweight and flexible baselayers we ever made!
Best for spring / summer
It’s the versatile piece made for adventures. More bulky than the classic Essential.
Best for spring / summer
Extremely strong and yet incredibly light and breathable compared to any CE AAA rated gear!
Best for all seasons

We don’t offer this service: this is in order to optimize the usage of fabric during the production stage. We make our prototypes in our atelier in Brussels, but only garments leaving our factory can be CE certified. Riders are often extremely pleased to see how stretchy our gear is, therefore we will suggest to test one for yourself: https://www.bowtex.store/store/
It’s actually less hot to have a pair of Bowtex® leggings!
Your regular jeans or city trousers have low fabric density, letting air flow through. With a pair of Bowtex® leggings underneath, you end up with two breathable layers! And when the temperature drops, you can adapt by wearing a thicker pair of pants or jeans for more isolation. Some single layer motorcycle jeans are made of fabrics that are very dense and thick in order to obtain good certification levels, and this can create some discomfort.
Our stretchy and soft fabrics feel like wearing a premium sports base layer… although an incredibly strong one! It allows you to move freely and slide easily under any pair of jeans or pants.
Our gear is stretchy and that will allow for an airbag to inflate freely without putting any pressure on your body. You can wear your airbag underneath or on top of any of our baselayers.
We only offer free change exchange within the EU and USA, provided that your Bowtex® leggings, pants or shirt are in brand new condition and in their original packaging. You can ask us for a one-time free return slip by email within 14 days of purchase.
For countries outside of the EU or USA, customers must send their purchase back at their own expense.
The knee protectors are best placed not too high on the legs since the pants or leggings will come up when sitting on the bike. Make sure that top part of the protector is covering your knee cap when your legs are folded. It’s okay if they slide down slightly when standing up.
The SAS-TEC protectors we use are very powerful shock absorbing systems and are designed to be used with motorcycle equipment only. Due to the very flexible material, it is fun to play with, but this will void the warranty: the protectors are not made to be bend totally (they will go back to their initial shape most of the time) as damages likes cracks can happen. We have seen many customers trying to bend them as much as they can to see how they perform: it is not how they are intended to be used. As an example, the back protectors will never be bended during an accident than more than 40% percent (if your spine is bended more than that, chances are that you are already dead).
Bellow, a picture of the SAS-TEC we use during fair and motorcycle events where people are bending it as much as they can.
Absolutely! Our original design remain the same and your leggings is now CE Level AA. Nothing else has changed except the packaging, now displaying CE AA! Please note that in order to be CE Level AA, you must ride with hips and knees protectors (you can get your hips protectors here Sas-Tec HB2)
