The peeps behind Hood Jeans have spent 3 years developing their new brand – Kyrano-UK – available to buy from 30th May 2011. Chris and Julie, owners of the family-run business, are perfectionists. They took three years to research materials and lining, develop techniques and take customers’ feedback on board. The result – comfortable riding jeans that take protection to the next level. Equipped with Kevlar thread and double layers of para-aramid knitted lining (to stop you getting gravel rash, should the worst happen), the jeans also feature removable D3O hip and knee body armour. Andy, editor of the Scootering magazine, has had a pair made for him by Chris and Julie, while explaining the process from start to end. He was very happy with the result, especially the comfort of physically wearing the jeans but also knowing they offered great protection. The full article is in the June’s issue of Scootering, including a bit of Hood Jeans history, details on how a pair of jeans is made plus more on fabrics and materials used. Scootering are also running a competition, giving you a chance to win one of two Kyrano pair jeans. And if you can’t wait to get your hands on your very own pair, just order them from the Kyrano website from this Monday, 30th May.
