FEATURES AND BENEFITS
PROTECTION & DURABILITYAdvanced Safety Stitching (ASSC) construction
AGVSPORT products are designed to be articulate while maintaining protection. Our products are functional because we focus on reinforcing high impact areas and improving dexterity where it is important. Most companies focus on look and do not fully understand the premise of rider safety and comfort. The most crucial impact areas are your backside, spine, limb joints, and palms. We use additional back padding, triple nylon stitching, and 1.4mm premium full-grain cowhide leather in order to protect these key areas. 1.2mm premium cowhide leather, polyester mesh, Keprotec®, and Dyneema® are used in low impact areas such as the arms, chest, sides and interior to allow our apparel to maintain its flexibility and ventilation for a comfortable ride. Our leather suits have perforated leather construction in critical areas to provide our riders with comfort without sacrificing safety. In addition, our removable inner liners allow our suits and jackets to ventilate when it is warm and insulate when it is cold.

Cowhide LeatherSince the beginning of time leather has always provided the highest level of protection that money can buy. Cowhide leather has various layers of construction between the flesh and coat of the cow. The grain leather is the outermost layer of hide and is the strongest layer of hide because the fibers are vertically integrated and highly ordered.

The first layer prevents water from passing through with pores less than .5 um in diameter. The second layer has a honeycomb structure that lets moisture to let it expel through the first layer. It absorbs the moisture so your body does not get sweaty while letting the moisture slowly leave. This is all at a microscopic and macroscopic levels you will never feel. The third layer is very dense for added protection against water. This is the layer closest to the skin. Additionally, HiPora® technology meets O.S.H.A.
