Draggin will be an official supplier for Alvaro Bautista and the Rizla Suzuki MotoGP crew with its range of protective jeans for the third motorcycle racing season in succession. Draggin will also supply the Rizla cargos and shorts to the Suzuki GSV-R crew. The working conditions of a MotoGP garage are matched to Draggin products and the entire team is stated to be using the Australian designs.
For street bike riding, Draggin are lined with a revolutionary hybrid of knitted Dyneema, one of the World’s Strongest Fiber, and Kevlar, which makes them strong enough to withstand at least 4.4 seconds of abrasion resistance while also being lightweight and comfortable. Draggin is a leader in protective jeans and are the only makers of CE Approved motorcycle jean in the world. Grant Mackintosh founded Draggin in 1997 and shortly began marketing his new invention by literally putting his backside on the line to prove the quality of his product. Grant was dragged behind a motorcycle, with the drag test starting out at a slow pace and gradually building up to over 110 km per hour. Since the very first drag test was conducted, many Draggin fans that have complete faith in the product have put their backsides on the road to prove the product. Rizla Suzuki will be using Draggin’s range of shorts, cargos, and jeans at all MotoGP events this year and look forward to a happy and successful partnership with the Australian company. Paul Denning (Rizla Suzuki MotoGP) says: "We have slowly developed our relationship with Draggin Jeans since Chris Vermeulen introduced us in 2008, and we are proud to be associated with a great company and an innovative, stylish safety product – one which enhances the pleasure of riding for all its customers. "The products supplied to the team are high quality, stylish and practical – Draggin are a great addition to the MotoGP paddock".More info can be found on Draggin’ Jeans at www.dragginjeans.net
