Draggin Jeans choose Knox for their unique CE-approved riding jeans

Australia's Draggin Jeans are the first producer of denim motorcycle jeans to receive full European CE-approval and British-made Knox protectors are part of their success story.
Only a handful of leather and textile motorcycle garments has reached this level of approval to date and it has never previously been granted to a street fashion jean. CE tests are applied by scientific laboratories and strictly impose minimum safety requirements, so gaining CE-approval means that a product has successfully satisfied all of those imposed standards. Draggin Jeans passed the European standards regulating the protective qualities of motorcycle clothing, EN 13595, which ensures the product offers real protection.

To gain CE-approval clothing must have CE-approved impact protection fitted at key impact areas – for trousers that means the knees and hips. Draggin Jeans have been long-term users of Knox body armour and chose the company's Air V2 protectors for its CE-approved jeans.

Grant Mackintosh, founder and CEO of Draggin Jeans, said: "This is a fantastic result. We have always maintained absolute faith in our product and its amazing safety features. We have always had the safest lining in the market, however, the requirements for CE approval are very strict, so we are elated."

The CE jean named C-Evo will immediately go into production and be available by the end of May. Knox protection is the choice of many leading clothing brands and their V2 protectors are also available for riders to retro-fit to existing clothing.
