The secret ingredient


If you want to create motorcycle jeans that look and feel like your favorite pair of denim, then most CE-rated armour kills it instantly. Why? They’re usually just too bulky and way too uncomfortable to wear all-day.

And, to establish a casual look and feel, it’s not just about the general design of the product or the use of funky materials, but it’s predominantly about the silhouette.

Insert a set of traditional knee protectors in a pair of motorcycle denim or an overshirt and you’ll instantly look like a biker. Plus, you definitely won’t feel the desire to walk around in them all day long.

The SEESMART™ limb protection family was developed in-house. They were engineered to perfection by our R&D team, tested and approved in our very own lab and CE-certified by a renowned and independent test institute.

The SEESMART™ protectors are a family of super-thin, flexible, fully ventilated, CE-level 1 certified limb protectors, constructed of SEEFLEX2925; the same material we used for the award-winning SEEFLEX™ family of protectors.


Lightweight, highly ventilated and extremely flexible, SEESMART™ protectors are virtually unnoticeable when riding despite being up to the task of protecting you in case of an unfortunate mishap.

Thanks to their flexible characteristics, these protectors sit close to your body following your anatomy. It allows for better-fitting, more comfortable silhouettes for motorcycle gear, making sure you can look effortlessly stylish in items from our Tailored Technology collection.

SEESMART™ protectors are certified under the EN1621-1:2012 standard for limb protection. The entire family of SEESMART™ protectors are CE-Level 1 certified.

Below you will find the basics behind the test procedure to get an idea what goes behind passing the strict norm in order to achieve certification.


In order to achieve the CE-certification protectors need to undergo the Energy Transmission Test, which measures the amount of force that is allowed to pass through the protector after impact. In all tests the protector is placed on an anvil after which it gets hit with a drop striker weighing 5 kilograms (11lbs) that falls from approximately one meter. This to make sure the kinetic impact energy is at least 50J.

As the primary goal of a protector is to prevent energy from passing through, the lower the value of energy transmission measured the better the shock absorption of the protector.

SEESMART™ protectors come in two variants. The most flexible variant, found in our denim collection and overshirts, are CE-level 1 certified but only in hot conditions (T+), which means they perform according to the CE-level 1 standard up to +40 degrees Celsius. Keep in mind that most traditional CE-level 1 protectors do not pass the test at high temperatures, so you will not find the T+ sign on the label.

The slightly more rigid and pre-shaped version of the SEESMART™ limb protection range that is included in most of our fashionable leather jackets, summer sports and touring jackets is CE-level 1 certified for all conditions, hence the T+ and T- marking on the label. The T- sign means that it performs within the standard of level 1 even in cold conditions as low as -10 Celsius.


Our SEESMART™ limb protectors are designed with the everyday rider in mind.

They’re protective, comfortable, come with equipped with unique ventilation properties and, most of all, ensure the desired silhouette we’re aiming for in our Tailored Technology collection.

Some people have a hard time believing that something so thin and flexible is a potent piece of protection. When you try out one of our overshirts or jeans at your local dealer, you probably won’t notice that the armour is already inside.

This makes many consumers doubt whether these miracle workers can actually do the trick. Rest assured; yes, they will. They have the same – if not better – energy absorption capacity as the traditional hard and clunky limb protectors from the past.
