BOLID’STER, a Motorcycle Armored Denim PROJECT

Let me ask you something. Do you think it is possible to ride a bike, with your safety gear on, while still looking and feeling good?

Well, at BOLID’STER we believe we make a great go at it. We guarantee you will get a quality product that exceeds our own expectations in terms of comfort, dexterity, durability and protection, and we will make sure you get all of this at a fair price.

This is a revolutionary and high performance denim that will change your life both ON and OFF the bike, and whether is Summer or Winter.

Revolutionary jeans? It’s about time!

If you are using a motorcycle as a means of transportation, there is going to be times, lots of times, in which you are going to arrive to a place filled with regularly-dressed people. These are places where skin-tight leather onesies are just not a good look.

BOLID’STER was conceived by and for pioneer spirits, denim connoisseurs and bolides enthusiast.

Color:

Nothing says “biker” like black leather. Our jeans are made out of ARMALITH2.0 - a denim fabric dedicated to the manufacture of high-performance jeans. 

It’s an advanced composite material that is flexible, soft, hydrophilic, light and dyed with a beautiful indigo color that will fade out over time… just like your genuine crafted jeans.

Shape:

With BOLID’STER, you don’t have to look all tight on your pants. You get to wear a comfortable and high-performance jeans that fit you just right.

Fit:

Unfortunately, ending up with baggy motorcycle gears happen all too often. Don’t let that happen to you! Whether it is a jacket, a pair or pants, or any other gear, it should always fit you without “bunching” with excess material or sogginess.

Protection & Resistance:  

ARMALITH2.0 is the first and only abrasion resistant material (even towards the 13595-2 motorcycle professional use standards) made of a single layer of fabric. ARMALITH provides both comfort and look of genuine jeans. With it, you might crash a bike and walk away still looking good.

The story

In 2003, Pierre-Henry Servajean created ARMALITH, obtained by combining cotton fibers with UHMWPE (Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) fiber which was only used in aerospace, military and off-shores industries.

This patented innovation has led to the manufacture of the world’s strongest denim ever. After 2 years of R&D he launched ESQUAD, the first jean’s brand using ARMALITH technology.

Perhaps the most remarkable component of Pierre-Henry’s story, though, is that in 2010, after 5 years of getting ESQUAD on the markets, the ESQUAD company was a dud.

At a glance, the two concepts don’t look all that different. So, what gives?

Since 2011, Pierre-Henry has been true to his main goal “pursuing business through passion and massive innovation” and has been investing in a deep filaments, yarns and fabric R&D program in collaboration with textile denim weaver and leader TEJIDOS ROYOS from Spain.

In 2015, the ARMALITH2.0 was born - softer, stretch, more technical and more fashionable – leading to Pierre-Henry’s new project: BOLID'STER.

What's next?

We have manufactured and brought other products to market, but for a project of this size and complexity we'll be using a pool of experts in the field to make sure the BOLID'STER lives up to it’s reputation : RELIABLE DENIM.

The skilled manufacturing company we’ve partnered with is one of the most prestigious in the world, in regards to the garmenting & finishing expertise they provide. They believe In BOLID’STER. They have an experienced team in the field to assist with quality control, shipping and other logistics.

We want you to have your BOLID'STER jeans as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

• March 2016: Make lots of new Kickstarter friends and end our first production batch

• April 2016: Go on sale to the public

• May 2016: Shipment to kickstarter Backers

We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment.

In the press

Risques et défis

Risks related to production are very limited, indeed, our industrial partners are leaders in their respective fields and provide full scalability in case of heavy production load. Actually they are already working with leading jeans brands in the world.

Kickstarter might be a valuable accelerator of experience and reputation for BOLID'STER. It is also an opportunity to aggregate a demanding riders community.

In case of fail with Kickstarter, BOLID'STER will start anyway, slowlyer, being present in April in six countries (motorcycle clothing stores).

But we think the Kickstarter community will allow us to initiate a special interaction with our early adopters. This (kick) vision of our market will enable us to better meet the expectations of our esteemed customers in order to develop and finance new products such as a female model in 2017.
