Convention-breaking next-level Denim

Tougher yet just as comfortable as regular denim

Denim was always the choice for people who need sturdy, protective workwear. Dyneema® is the strongest and most durable fiber in the world. So combining the two is the perfect way to increase durability, toughness, protection, and cut resistance, without reducing comfort.

Tough, tougher, toughest

Fashion and urban wear: Including 5-10% Dyneema® increases the abrasion resistance of 100% denim by 250-600%, tear resistance by 50-100%, and tensile strength by 25-100%.

Action sportswear: Dyneema® increases the abrasion resistance by 10-20% compared with cotton-HT nylon blends, and matches them for tear resistance and tensile strength, at only half the amount of Dyneema®.

Motorcycle wear: Using half the amount of Dyneema® improves the abrasion resistance of a single-layer motorcycle denim with aramid by 70%. The like-for-like improvement is 300%. And half the amount of Dyneema® is twice as strong as denim with HT nylon on burst/tensile strength.  

Levi’s® 501® Strong: reinventing a classic

When Levi’s® decided to make jeans for people who push their clothing that bit harder, or need more protection, they turned to Dyneema®.

Including just 7% Dyneema® fiber more than doubled abrasion resistance and boosted strength by 25%. Yet they still felt like 501®s.

An even stronger icon was born.

Saint Unbreakable Denim: The first single layer motorcycle denim

Saint Unbreakable Denim is a blend of Dyneema® and natural fibers that outperforms aramid-lined jeans and jacket combos. Saint weaves Dyneema® in the warp and weft to create a fabric that looks great, protects great and is comfortable to wear all day and all night.

Berto E.G Industria Tessile S.r.l denim: the ultimate strength

Italian fabric manufacturer Berto is mixing new yarns and technologies to create extreme-wear products that bridge fashion and technical clothing. Its technical denim with Dyneema® fiber outperforms typical denim by a factor of seven, yet ages like regular denim without sacrificing performance.

Cone Denim: performance denim that doesn’t look it

Cone Denim is using Dyneema® to create high-strength technical fabrics that don’t look like high-strength technical fabrics. Using a small amount of Dyneema® the company can create a cloth that’s stronger than normal but with the same authentic denim look. Like the limited edition Levi’s® 501® Centennial. Made with 10% Dyneema®, they were Levi’s® strongest jeans to date.

Motorcycle denim put to the test

Draggin offers Motorcycle denim with a protective lining on the inside that thanks to the addition of Dyneema® pass the CE level 1 and 2 according EN13595.
