MAKE THE BEST GEAR POSSIBLE
We want to build strong and durable gear that is lightweight, flexible, breathable and yet extremely resistant.
Unlike most traditional manufacturers, we use high end technical fibers and fabrics, such as Dyneema® and DuPont™ Kevlar®) that allow us to achieve this goal, breaking the codes of conventional motorcycle protective gear.
MAKE IT LOCAL
Bowtex is based in Brussels, Belgium. Our top priority from the inception of the company was to work with partners located as close to us as possible. In this way, we create strong, long lasting relationships with our suppliers and have more control on the quality of each component. This also helps reduce CO2 emissions from transportation of goods.

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.
