Bowtex was founded by a passionate motorcycle rider who didn't find an adequate solution to his problem, riding safe while keeping his own style. He then went on to develop a protective bas layer that he could wear under his favorite pair of jeans, and the rest is history!
REACHING FOR THE BEST
We want to create products that are tough and durable, but also light, flexible, breathable and yet extremely resistant. Unlike traditional manufacturer, we use high end technical fibers and fabrics such as Dupont™ Kevlar® and Dyneema® that allow us to obtain high certification results without being heavy or hot, maintaining a high level of comfort, which also contributes to your safety.
MAKE IT LOCAL
Bowtex is a Brussels based company. And from its inception, the main priority was to work with local partners, all based in Western Europe. This way, we built strong, long lasting relationships with our suppliers and this helps us maintain a high level of quality. This also helps reduce CO2 emissions as the distances are shorter and transport is carried via trucks. We also contribute to the local and European economy.
BY RIDERS, FOR RIDERS
The Bowtex team are avid motorcycle riders. It\'s part of our DNA and is something that we don\'t see ourselves live without. We live through all the aspects of motorcycle riding, and are therefore well positioned to create products that solve problems that rider encounter on their journeys. Whether they are to work and back, or across the globe.
