CLOTHES MADE FROM THE RIGHT STUFF

When we create new products, we set ourselves high standards. Our secret recipe for success is a century of craftsmanship blended with high technology. The result is motorcycle gear that’s far ahead of the pack. Just ask any of the professional motorcyclists who wear our garments daily, including a great response from some of the police forces around Europe.

Our goal is always to produce gear that is exceptionally comfortable to wear and equally safe to ride in. We spend countless hours researching fabrics, new technologies and different construction methods. We are always on the hunt to find ways to improve the garments that ultimately is to improve biker’s lives. 

Each of our technologies is rigorously tested and selected to suit our exact needs for the products we design. Outer materials are strong and durable, but also soft and supple, again to maximise safety and comfort. It doesn’t stop there. All of our fitted protectors are adjustable for a perfect individual fit with adjustable hems, cuffs and waist areas to further emphasise this.

All this allows you, as the rider to be relaxed and comfortable and to easily focus your attention and energy to stay alert and safe. 

Put on one of our products, and you will see what we mean. All of which increases the chances of you arriving home safe and relaxed. The materials, techniques and methods to keep you safe and comfortable on the road.

IMPORTANCE OF THE RIGHT MATERIAL

 

Halvarssons Hi-ArtHI-ART®
HI-ART is a proprietary material developed by us. We use the material in especially exposed areas to increase abrasion resistance. It makes leather 200 per cent stronger and textiles no less than 500 per cent stronger. We are extremely proud of our invention and of being alone in offering you this solution.

Halvarssons 3 Triple Stitch3STICH
A garment is never stronger than its seams. It makes no difference how good the material is if the seams break. Following a multitude of tests, we have found a technique that provides maximum durability. We use a well-balanced stitch density, a heavy-duty, hard-wearing thread in triple stitched seams in exposed areas.

Halvarssons OutlastOUTLAST®
Outlast® is a high-tech material that regulated the temperature inside the garment. It was originally developed to protect astronauts against extreme temperature changes and has since then been further developed to work in motorcycle wear as well. The lining consists of millions of microscopic paraffin wax capsules that absorb, store and release excess heat to keep you feeling comfortable out on the road.

Halvarssons Dryway

Dryway+2.0®, Dryway+® and Dryway®
Dryway+2.0, Dryway+ and Dryway are wind and waterproof membranes that keeps you dry even in the wettest, windiest weather. The material allows moisture vapor to escape from the inside while keeping wind and rain out. Our latest functional membrane, Dryway+2.0, has a waterproofing value of 10,000mm and a 30,000g/m2/24h breathability value. Keep in mind that a membranes function relies upon the difference in humidity between the inside and outside. If an external heat source is applied such as heated grips or seats, the membrane will work in reverse. 

Halvarssons DRW

DWR
An extra water repellent treatment on some of our textile and leather products providing additional comfort to the user. Garments treated with a DWR will shed water more efficiently, retain their breathability properties and dry faster while also being easier to keep clean.

Halvarssons TFL TFL Cool System®
Black leather can easily become hot in the sun. Therefor we use TFL Cool System – an innovation that ensures black leather to not absorb more heat than lighter coloured materials. Once it has been treated, 80 per cent of the heat radiation is reflected away and the garment can be up to 20 °C cooler. 

Halvarssons Innoborne

INNOBORNE®
An insulating material capable of retaining heat longer than even wool yet is light weight, quick drying and transports moisture efficiently away from the body. Consist of 100% Olefin / Polypropylene.

Halvarssons Thinsulate

THINSULATE®
Sometimes warm clothes can feel awkward and bulky, but thanks to Thinsulate our garments are light and supple, while also keeping you warm. The secret behind the material is in the unique microfibres that helps trap body heat, while allowing moisture to escape.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Coming in from the rain
Let wet garments dry slowly at room temperature. Leather garments should not be dried at too high a temperature and never in an airing cupboard or on a radiator as this will make garments stiff and hard. 

Leather garments
Leather garments must never dry out completely. Because dry leather fibres break easily under stress such as an accident, treat leather regularly with e.g. Nikwax Waterproof Wax for Leather so that it retains its natural elasticity. Use a mild soap solution or leather soap such as Nikwax Leather Cleaner two or three times a year to ensure garments last year in, year out. Always test it first somewhere that doesn’t show e.g. inside. 

Textile garments
To keep textile garments clean, wash them according to their washing instructions; we recommend the use of Nikwax Tech Wash. But don’t forget to remove the armour. You should waterproof outer garments often, preferably every three washes. Use Nikwax TX Direct for functional clothing.
