PEKEV® Ultra is a new addition to the revolutionary Pekev® fabric range. A single layer cotton/Pekev® combination. The result of 12 years’ research and development by Resurgence Gear. By utilising the highest quality spinning techniques we have pushed the boundaries of cottons, aramids and ethylene fibres, developing the strongest fabric combination in the world.
Constructed from the toughest polymer with the highest breaking point of any yarn, PEKEV® is unsurpassed among modern day protection layers. Compared to other polymers, PEKEV® has the highest impact strength, is self-lubricating, has high wicking properties, has a low amount of friction and is resistant to abrasion. PEKEV® is 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel.
PEKEV® Ultra fabric has been internationally tested excelling in safety, durability and usability.
We have combined this latest fabric technology with high street fashion to create a new standard of protection and comfort in motorcycle clothing.
_ CE level 2 abrasion rating
_ Over 200% stronger than similar fabrics
_ 15 times stronger than carbon steel
_ Comfort stretch with integrated Elasteen
_ Longer lifespan compared to other brands
_ Durable against bleach, UV, heat dispersion, moisture, detergents, and ionic enzyme washing
Unlike aramid fabric which degrades quickly PEKEV® is strong against:
Ionic enzyme washing. In 90% of cases aramid fibres are treated with ionic enzymes when washing denim, so performance is affected right from the point of manufacturing. Aramids are sensitive to acids. PEKEV® is unaffected.
Bleach. Chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) treatment completely destroys the strength of aramid fabrics. PEKEV® remains unaffected.
Ultra violet (sunlight to you and me). In strong sunlight, or a high UV environment, aramid fibres degrade and life cycle is reduced. With PEKEV® there is no degredation and the fibres are unaffected.
Moisture. Aramid strength is affected by moisture and washing. PEKEV® is again not affected.
Detergents. Superior chemical resistance means that the performance of PEKEV® is unaffected by these.
Heat dispersion. Most aramid fabrics retain heat and do not breathe PEKEV® disperses body heat and is breathable, so keeps you cool comfortable and able to focus even on long runs on sunny days.
