NEW 3rd Generation Infinity K‑tech Para‑aramid

The K7 and SK11 ranges are lined with the same Infinity K-tech para-aramid. This hi-tech double layer construction provides excellent levels of protection. In a RIDE Magazine destruction test the K-tech Infinity scored 10 out of 10 for complete protection. The construction has also improved on comfort by making the material more breathable and even softer than linings used before its introduction in 2018. We have always stated that coverage is of utmost importance for protection; after all, it isn’t worth having the strongest lining if it is then restricted only to the knees, hips and seat. The K7 and SK11 ranges have exactly the same extensive coverage of the K-tech Infinity lining, providing great protection whilst remaining comfortable when on or off the motorcycle.

In 2018 the coverage of the K-tech protective layer was extended, making for increased protection, and enabling Hood Jeans to easily pass the CE certification process. The denim + K-tech Infinity + Airflow mesh construction easily passes the abrasion tests for EN 17092-2:2020 CLASS AAA.

SK11 LINING

NEW Climate Control ‘Airflow’ Mesh

This lining not only improves the comfort of the new K7 & SK11 jeans, but also contributes to injury reduction. In a slide along the tarmac, the denim and para-aramid layers can move around rapidly over short distances across the skin, which could cause friction burns.

Adding the Airflow lining means these movements occur between the back face of the lining and the outer layers, not the wearer’s skin, reducing or preventing the risk of injury.

K7/AA and K7/B Jeans – The ‘airflow mesh’ runs through the entire jean, from the waistband down to the hem.

SK11/AAA and SK11/B Jeans – The ‘airflow mesh’ runs from the waistband down to the shin. This allows this style to be able to have turn-ups.

RiDE Magazine Destruction Test

July 2019: The Test

This test was performed on twelve motorcycle jeans on the market; the Hood K7/AA Infinity Jean was one of only two jeans that survived all four tests still totally intact. RIDE wrote; ‘the Hood K7/AA Infinity Jean scored 10/10 for protection, offering complete protection, a great job from a good-looking pair of jeans’.

They took an old pair of sacrificial leather trousers and filled the butt/crotch with medium-sized gravel fixing jubilee clips around the ankles so that they could drag them behind a car. They then fitted the jeans over the leathers and carried out four separate drag tests. Starting off from rest, acceleration to 30mph and then, breaking to rest again. They carried out multiple drag tests because they wanted to see how the jeans would protect the skin in the event of a higher-speed or a longer-distance slide. Studying each pair after four runs gave a reasonable idea of this.

MOTORCYCLE JEANS DESTRUCTION TEST

  • The MoreBikes ‘Motorcycle Jeans Destruction Test’ set out to show the differences between a fully lined and part lined Jean. It was a fun experiment but one that may well show what will happen to a Jean during a spill.
  • All Hood Jeans are fully lined with K-tech Para-aramid from the waistband down to the top of the boot. We believe this is preferable to covering so called ‘crash points’ with smaller amounts of protection.
  • Seventeen years of proven protection.
  • K-tech fibres are virtually unaffected by absorption of water.
I received the order and the jeans are...... fantastic! Purchasing online for the first time from an unknown supplier always entails some risk, but you have exceeded my expectations in the quality of the product, customer service and delivery timing.
The denim on my Hood Jeans had been ripped in numerous places but the K-tech para-aramid and D30 armour saved me from any injury.
I ordered a pair of your K7 jeans with the D30 knee & hip protectors at the beginning of the week and they arrived yesterday. I live in Normandy so already the speed of delivery impressed me but it doesn't stop there.
I just wanted you to know that while on tour in Spain last week, I dropped my Triumph Explorer at about 20 MPH, breaking my ankle and arm in the process. I had no road rash at all and the jeans were completely undamaged.
I crash tested my HOOD JEANS whilst trying to learn to wheelie. Obviously we were practising on private land, with the owner’s permission. Well as you can see, my jeans stood up to my lack of talent far better that my bike did.
Great buying experience! I am very pleased with the product received and the speedy delivery. This is my second pair of your motorcycle jeans. I lost weight and wanted to get another as I liked them completely.
I had a high speed accident whilst wearing my Hood jeans. The damage to the jeans is quite substantial but I have come away with not a mark on me considering that I slid down the road for at least 100 metres.
