THE JEANS YOU WANT TO WEAR, JUST GOT SAFE
Most of our design team ride to work and all struggled to find a trouser which delivers safety whilst riding matched with the comfort and style of a regular jean.
They went out and spent time in motorcycle shops, began asking around, researched what other riders were wearing to work. They listened, learned and realised they weren’t alone.
After months of thoughtful design and material innovation, we finally addressed the need to make motorcycle denim better with the introduction of Oxford’s single layer denim.

OXFORD’S NEW LIGHTWEIGHT BI-COMPOSITE DENIM.
AUTHENTIC STYLE, DELIVERING INNOVATIVE PROTECTION.
For Oxford’s single layer protective clothing, material innovation – from new yarn and fibre technologies to new finishes and dyeing techniques – was a priority; we needed performance fabrics built specifically for life on two wheels.
After months of testing and development, both in the lab and out on the road, we introduced our first iteration of Armourlite® – a highly durable, single layer denim which maintains a vintage look and softness for jeans you want to wear.
To do this, we worked with skilled weavers to incorporate into the weave a high tenacity polyamide fibre – a hard-wearing material originally developed by the military for parachute cords.
A two-way stretch was added to enhance mobility and comfort. We also included a quick dry technology which draws sweat and increases water repellency.
As well as boasting great comfort and strength, Armourlite™ also benefits from tremendous heat stability. This matters because abrasion during an accident can generate temperatures above 100°C.
Where some abrasion resistant materials used in motorcycle jeans suffer from a low melting point (around 150°C), Armourlite®’s composite structure remains completely stable well past 230°C.
Armourlite® technology has since evolved beyond denim and into other fabrics which offer the same high street look and comfort in single layer protective leggings, jeggings, joggers, hoodies, chinos and cargo pants.
