We have always designed our products to the best quality. Using only the highest quality Certified materials and CE Approved Armour such as:
DuPont™ Kevlar®, CORDURA®, CE Certified Level I & Level II Armour, SoftShell®, YKK®, Velcro®
We spend countless hours ride testing for fit, style and functionality as well as going through numerous samples, to make the best possible quality, fitting and functioning garment we possibly can. This is what sets us apart from others.
We want every rider that wears Two Wheel Appeal to be as protected as we ourselves were the night I was thrown on the motorway at 100+kmh.
Wearing full 2WA Level II Elite Street Jacket, 2WA Level II Elite Street Joggers and our GP Shorty Gloves. I sustained a small graze to my right knee and a very minor graze to my lower back. The CE Level II Rated Armour in the Elite Jacket and Joggers absorbed all the impacts as I slid and tumbled down the motorway at over 100kmh. Leaving me with no bruising or impact trauma. The genuine DuPont™ Kevlar® Weave exceeded in protecting me from abrasions and keeping the protective garments together.
The crash pads and impact protectors on the 2WA GP Shorty Gloves, combined with our extra layer of protection on the webbed outer fingers, with Kevlar® stitching. Not only protected my hands from any finger roll and breaks. But also, from any injury at all be a sore thumb for a few days.
The choice to make our drop leg shoulder bag out of Super Tough Canvas with Foam Impact Protection on both the inner and outer of the bag not only proved to protect all my valuables including mobile phone from any damage at all. But also acted as extra hip protection protecting me from any damage to my hip area as it stayed strapped to my hip throughout the high-speed accident.
Everything had performed exactly as it was designed to do or better!
To the surprise of many witnesses, I not only got up. I got up with barely a mark to show. The choice to use the best possible Quality Products made to the Highest Standard to help protect others. Had in fact protected me from any major or minor injury.
At the time I was wearing a non-approved 2WA Street Shoe sample. Although this shoe did an amazing job of protecting the feet and ankles against any skin abrasions. It did not protect against foot or ankle roll and I sustained some broken toes and bones in my right foot when it hit the motorway at high speed. This is why we chose never to go into production with this shoe and has now led us to design a Street Shoe that will help to combat this.
