The forefathers of the armoured baselayer are back and the product is better than ever. Bowtex produced the original aramid leggings way back in the day, and they quickly revolutionized the way we saw protective motorcycle gear, becoming one of the most popular products we have offered to date. No longer do you have to spend hours trying on different jeans for fit and comfort - you can throw your favourite pair on over these, and sacrifice neither style, nor protection.

Designed for the city and country roads, the Essential legging is the lighter product in the range - incredibly unobtrusive and flexible, you will truly forget you’re wearing them. Crafted from two separate layers, with key areas covered by 45% Aramid fiber; and 55% COOLMAX® fabric, and the rest of the garment made from a hard-wearing stretch polyamide, the leggings will upgrade whatever you’re wearing to a CE Level A approved bit of kit instantly. They come with removable SAS-TEC® TRIPLEFLEX level 2 armour at the knees that is as slim as your standard Level 1 pads, and pockets for hip armour should you wish to upgrade.

The only way to retain your perfect style, these inconspicuous and versatile armoured leggings give you true freedom to express yourself, and all the peace of mind of a technical riding jean with none of the bulk.
