Since Gotlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach created the first motorcycle in 1885, riding gear remained the same. Leather.
112 years later, inspired Draggin founder Grant Mackintosh revolutionised the freedom of riding by engineering the world’s first pair of protective motorcycle jeans. His desire was to create the safest motorcycle clothing possible. He succeeded, reinventing protective clothing and engineering the most technically advanced motorcycle jeans in the world.
Like many inventions, Draggin Jeans seems simple. Yet as an engineering feat it remains unchallenged. Even 20 years later.
Using accepted CE 13595 standard testing methods Draggin prove their jeans provide far and away world leading and the best safety available. For instance, their jeans with RooMoto MR7+ last over 7.46 seconds which equates to over 75 metres in slide time. That's further than an Olympic size swimming pool.
They keep on testing to prove Draggins. Last year alone they tested our abrasion resistance 150 times to prove thier superior performance. And that's how they know they have double the abrasion resistance of any other.
What this means is that Draggins achieve a 300% reduction in the risk of a soft tissue injury in an accident. Nothing works like Draggins.
They didn't just create a new category, they outperformed it and they've changed the face of motorcycle-ware forever. The may not be the only gear for the ride. But they are the only one to hit the road in. That's the Draggin way forward.
