HIGH-TECH LEATHER FOR RIDING PURPOSES
Use of leathers treated in Italy, with a wide diversity of range, where the selection of raw materials arises from the performance requested from the garment.
1. Snuffed cow leather: soft, high tension and tearing resistance, 1.2mm/1.3mm thick, water repellent.
2. Pigment finished leather it is the most resistant and it is the more used leather in racing clothing due to its versatility. The superior resistance to light and scratches is achieved through the application of a finishing pigmented film; furthermore, the surface may be printed, also embossed, or silk screen printed.
3. Full grain kangaroo leather, refined, soft, water repellent, with a shining appearance, which allows in this way to have racing sports clothing with the best possible balance between mechanical performances and lightness.
4. Kangaroo or cow perforated leather, soft, with high tech ventilation allowing to locate the air vents only where indispensable, away from the seams, thus ensuring, further than better looks, also better safety in the event of a fall.
5. Cow split grain - resistant for the most stressed parts, the more exposed to the contrast with exterior objects, generally used for suede inserts, having a velvety and warm finish, very comfortable to touch.
6. Aniline treated cow or sheep leather - it’s the one with the most natural appearance, because it has no cover finishing. It keeps the unique features of the coat of the animal, for this reason there is the possibility to glimpse different shades of colour. The leather treated with aniline is dyed, but it is not finished with any polymeric film or pigment a thin layer of transparent layer is applied, with the function to protect from stain and to give a touch of shine.
7. Vintage leather - type of goods designed to have a unique and personal look thanks to peculiar natural sourced resin and grease based tanning treatments which highlight with the use the specific “worn” effect. The quality standards guarantee as well high solidity of colours in function of the use destination for which the garment was designed.
HIGH-TECH FABRICS FOR RIDING PURPOSES
Spyke clothes use high tenacity fabrics with special treatments combining bi-elastic weaves with twisted yarns. The combination and the selection of special 600D Polyester, Cordura, Nylon, Rayon, Lycra, having high resistance to traction, cut, heat and tearing with the minimum electric conductivity, having excellent mechanical performances which must be added to lightness and easy maintenance and cleaning, make the fabric clothes suitable to be used under adverse weather conditions, also thanks to the water proofing treatment, guaranteeing an appropriate protection in case of slide.
In case of rain, the simple drying of the clothes at the air is enough to reactivate all the oil and water repellence features of the clothes.
Spyke high tech clothes employ innovative Nylon spiral zip closure, having a high resistance to thermal shocks and perfectly adapting to the shapes of the body. Tenacity, resistance to use and wear, reliability, fluidity and accuracy of closure characterise their performance.
The racing suits are equipped with flame retardant zips, able to meet the rules on the protection against heat and flame with a L.O.I. (limit oxygen index) ranging from 28 to 30.
The sportier and racing clothes use the new zips with auto-locking anti-floating slider.
|The clothes with SPS protection technology are equipped with ergonomic protectors, designed to follow the movement of the rider, guaranteeing the absorption of impacts in the areas more exposed to fractures in the event of falls, thanks to special insets in foam material designed to have a high energetic absorption ratio.||Light and resistant to wear hydrophilic polyurethane membrane, performing in extreme environmental conditions (from -200°C to +100°C) coupled to high tenacity fabrics guaranteeing an excellent protection from external elements (rain and wind).|
|An innovative garment construction philosophy, combining different fabrics, having specific technical features, different one from the other, to respond to any muscle, any movement. any season or road.
Through bio-mechanic analysis, all garments aim to the specific goal to achieve maximum fit, best comfort and best performance of the concerned muscular mass.
|Innovative evolution system of protection dynamics based on the employment of state of the art materials, such as the Astromemory Expanded Nitril Rubber, a special polymeric foam with exceptional shock absorption abilities, extremely light, flexible and breathable, or special inserts in EVA, a material having excellent impact absorption ability and shape memory, with high tech perforations guaranteeing tenacity and ventilation to enhance comfort.|
|Employment of cow leather for sporting purposes of kangaroo leather with special finishing, with a resistance to abrasion of more than 2000 Martin Dayl cycles, more than 70kg/Newton tear resistance, no use of chemical products harmful for man, flex test (warm and cold), CE 1621-1 race use certification. To make a leather suit for track use 6 meters of cow leather (weight - 5.5 kg), or 8 meters of kangaroo leather (weight 4.2 kg) are needed.||Drytecno is the technology used by Spyke to protect the rider from
rain and wind.
The polyurethan resin membrane (PU), having a unique structure especially created to be used on the bike, which absorbs and drives out sweat (7,000g/m2/24h), but remains waterproof (10,000 mm waterproofness), ensures maximum protection from external elements, even allowing transpiration, with a water volume exceeding 10,000mm.
The unique construction of the garments with Drytecno technology creates a wide dry air volume between body and waterproof barrier, strongly reducing the risk of condensation from excessive sweat and contributes to keep constant the skin temperature (eliminating the heat dispersion through direct conduction body-lining-water).
|The selected products were tested and tuned by professional riders.||
High-tech fabrics for riding purposes Spyke clothes use high tenacity fabrics with special treatments combining bi-elastic weaves with twisted yarns. The combination and the selection of special 600D Polyester, Cordura, Nylon, Rayon, Lycra, having high resistance to traction, cut, heat and tearing with the minimum electric conductivity, having excellent mechanical performances which must be added to lightness and easy maintenance and cleaning, make the fabric clothes suitable to be used under adverse weather conditions, also thanks to the water proofing treatment, guaranteeing an appropriate protection in case of slide.
|Special construction technology implying the use panels in innovative Elastomere combined in weaving with polyammidic yarns with high tenacity (x-stretch fabric) to guarantee optimal comfort and fit thanks to the bi dimensional elasticity.
In the racing suit the x-stretch fabric is coupled with a leather panel, which, thanks to special gusset seams stretches lengthwise and in width, allowing to the rider agile and comfortable movements.
The AIR products guarantee an appropriate ventilation thank to extended net inserts or breathable perforated leather of differential weaves, further than the several perforated inserts in the zones where transferring outside of the body heat is needed.
|Innovative Elastomere, extremely performing in the absorption of violent impacts, used in ballistic for producing bullet-proof jackets. Flexible and resistant to the most extreme temperatures, it is hydrophobic and much more lighter than the PU polymers commonly employed for protective purposes.||The “women fit” Spyke garments are created for the woman who does not want to quit her femininity, not even on two wheels.
Thanks to the cut and the lines following feminine shapes, the adjustment Velcro straps, the belts to enhance the waistline, but also more comfortable volumes in the breast area, Spyke “women fit” garments dress riders in a comfortable and performing way, without giving up modern looks and maximum safety.
|Spyke Thermal clothing offers warmth and comfort without adding weight. Lightness and freedom of movement are the key features of the products having the Thermal insulation technology, which, thanks to special paddings in braided polyester hollow fibre, grant a high resistance and a huge breathability, without absorbing water or humidity.
The low heat transmission coefficient allows retaining temperature heath with even better features than wool.
|Any DWR treated Spyke garment becomes water-repellent and gains a better resistance against wear and stains (oil, insects....), without the fabric or leather becoming stiff or modifying its look or tactile feel, but helping to prevent the need to clean the garments, and allowing the stains to be removed at low temperatures and without the application of aggressive detergents. Furthermore, the garments treated with the exclusive DWR treatment dries out 25% more quickly than a garment made of non treated fabric.|
|The new “unlined” construction multilayer jackets are designed for achieving the best comfort and the best mobility for chest and arms, thanks to the reduction of friction between the components of the garment (shell-insert insulation-membrane).||The seams of the Drytecno equipped garments are thermal-taped to prevent even the tiniest penetration of water.|
|The seams reinforced with heavy duty yarns add durability to most abrasion and tension stressed parts of the garment.||The shock absorbing element is designed to withstand multiple impacts, whether they are in quick succession on a slam or over the lifetime of the product. By returning to its original shape after impact, the protector is able to once again effectively absorbe new shocks.|
|The inner lining of the suit can be removed and washed separately for a correct hygiene of the garment.||Vibram is the world leader in high performance rubber soles. For more than 70 years, the famous yellow octagon that identifies the brand has been synonymous with quality, performance, safety, innovation and design.|
|Footwear inner sole in special yarn having an active odour absorbing technology.||Employment of a special wind-proof micro-porous membrane, ultra-thick, ultra-light and hyper-resistant to extreme temperatures.
