SAINT BALLISTIC MOTORCYCLE DRILL
The Saint Ballistic Motorcycle Drill* is made from 100% black DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers.
Designed to be pushed harder, a lot harder. The Saint Ballistic Motorcycle Drill, made from 100% Kevlar® demonstrates 360° tensile strength, slash, tear and heat resilience. On a strength to weight ratio, it’s 5 times stronger than steel, lightweight, all-day-wearable with significant burst, impact and slide abrasion resistant properties.
TOUGH - DURABLE - PERFECT
WHY SHOULD WHAT WE PUT ON IN THE MORNING LIMIT WHAT WE CAN DO WITH OUR DAYS?
Out riding a while back with a couple of buddies from the UK that own a British Superbike race team, we got talking about clothing and asked ourselves the question - why should what we put on in the morning limit what we can do with our days?
As designers we face new challenges everyday and this was a great one. All day and all night wearable motorcycle inspired protective clothing - clothing that feels similar to what we are used to wearing, clothing that you can roll off your bike, into whatever your into and back out onto your bike - skipping no beat. Clothing that protects if things go random.
Our first task has been designing new fabrics; fabrics that are single layer, fabrics that are protective. We are re-evaluating how the two toughest ballistic fibres on the planet - Para-Aramids (such as Kevlar®) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylenes (such as Dyneema®) can be spun, woven and knitted with naturals and man mades. The possibilities are amazing!
For the launch of Saint our design focus is on making new fabrics for a core all day and all night wearable wardrobe - protective jeans, drills, knits, base layers and basics.
So, for the Saint work inspired wear we developed a Ballistic Motorcycle Drill - A Drill that demonstrates all the impact and abrasion strength of DuPont™ Kevlar®, maintains a great hand-feel and can be worn all day and all night.
WHAT DOES SAINT MOTORCYCLE DRILL FEEL LIKE TO WEAR?
The Saint Motorcycle Drills made of 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers are like nothing we’ve ever worn. First you will notice they are super tough and surprisingly light. They feel solid with a hand feel a bit like a 14oz denim. They are a little warmer in winter and breathable.
The detailed construction includes triple stitched seams bound along leg and crotch, quality YKK zips with the outer leg seams taped up with 3M reflective on the cuffs. The cut is a little longer in the leg and they have a surprisingly good fit on any body shape.
These drills are all-day-wearable, and being made of 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers, will retain their shape through any wash and dry cycle – they will never shrink.
