Why you need to wear motorcycle protective gear with aramid

If you're someone who loves to ride motorcycles, then you know that there is nothing quite like the feeling of freedom and exhilaration that comes with cruising down the open road. But as much as we all love the thrill of riding, it's important to remember that it can be a dangerous activity. That's why wearing protective gear is absolutely essential. And when it comes to protective gear, one of the most important (and completely BA) materials you should look for is aramid.


 Aramid is a fiber that is known for its incredible strength and resistance to heat and abrasion. It's the top-of-the line material that James Bond would wear. At NBT Clothing we use aramid in our protective gear to help reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accident. But why is aramid so important, and why should you choose it over other materials? Here are a few key reasons:

Exceptional strength and durability

Aramid is one of the strongest fibers available, with a tensile strength that is five times stronger than steel. It's also incredibly durable, able to withstand high levels of heat and abrasion without breaking down. This makes it ideal for use in protective gear, which needs to be able to withstand the rigors of the road and protect you in the event of an accident.

Lightweight and comfortable

Despite its incredible strength, aramid is also lightweight and comfortable to wear. This is especially important when it comes to motorcycle gear, as you don't want to feel weighed down or restricted while you're riding. With aramid gear, you'll barely even notice that you're wearing it, but you'll be glad you have it on if the worst happens.


Aramid can be used in a wide range of protective gear, from jackets and pants to gloves. This means that no matter what type of gear you prefer or what your specific needs are, there is likely an aramid-lined option that will work for you. And because aramid is so versatile, it can be used in gear that is designed for different types of riding, from casual cruising to high-speed racing. NBT’s License to Ride Aramid Pants, Bodyguard Pullover Hoodie, Free Ridin’ Flannels, and Fundamental Shop Shirt  all contain aramid lining.

Added peace of mind

Finally, wearing protective gear with aramid can give you the peace of mind you need to truly enjoy your ride. Knowing that you're protected in the event of an accident can help you to relax and focus on the road, rather than worrying about what might happen if something goes wrong. And while we all hope that we'll never have to use our protective gear, having it on hand can make all the difference in the world if the worst does happen.

So if you're serious about staying safe on the road, be sure to invest in some high-quality aramid-lined motorcycle gear. Whether you're a seasoned rider or just starting out, having the right gear can make all the difference in the world when it comes to protecting yourself on the road. With NBT’s aramid gear, you can ride with confidence, knowing that you're doing everything you can to stay safe and enjoy the open road to its fullest without compromising protection, comfort or style.
