Gone are the days when in order to be safe on a motorcycle, one had to don attire more appropriate for a robot extra in a 70s sci-fi serial. Changing that is a new breed of motorcycle apparel manufacturers, like ‘CRAVE FOR RIDE’.
STYLE OR SKIN? WHY NOT BOTH?
As motorcycle riders, we often choose between saving face or saving skin. Well, no more. CraveFor Ride’s new anti-abrasion, armoured ‘Montana Armalith’ shirt allows you to do both. It’s made from what the brand says is the world’s strongest denim, and it looks exceptionally cool.
Crave is a boutique motorcycle apparel brand that specialises in fashionable, comfortable, protective shirts and jackets for riders. The brand touts that the ‘Montana Armalith’, their newest denim shirt can withstand aggressive contact with asphalt for 4 seconds – that is should you ever need to slide on it.
MONTANA ARMALITH MOTORCYCLE SHIRT: COMFORT, STYLE & FUNCTION
With its distinctly refined urban appearance, the Montana Armalith shirt will keep you safe and stylish anywhere you ride. Its breathable microfiber lining and light overall weight make it a perfect everyday shirt. When you’re ready to ride, concealed pockets unzip to hold CE-rated back, elbow and shoulder protectors. Cavernous front pockets carry goggles, gloves and gadgets with ease.
MONTANA SHIRT – SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
The denim for this motorcycle shirt is supplied by the experts at Armalith. Made from woven threads of cotton, Lycra, and aramid, this advanced material is stronger than Kevlar and can resist tearing and abrasions to a remarkable degree.
Man-made, heat-resistant aramid fibres are used in applications ranging from bicycle tires to bulletproof vests. The Montana Shirt implements this synthetic polymer to protect its wearer from the heat of friction, reducing the chances of road rash and gear rash in the event of an accident.
