Rizla Suzuki Continues Partnership with Draggin Jeans

Draggin will continue as the official jeans supplier of the Rizla Suzuki MotoGP Team through the 2011 season, supplying Alvaro Bautista and the Rizla Suzuki crew with its range of protective jeans. The company will also supply the team’s cargos and shorts.

For road riding, Draggin are lined with a revolutionary hybrid of knitted Dyneema, claimed to be the world’s strongest fiber, and Kevlar, which makes them so strong that they can withstand at least 4.4 seconds of abrasion resistance, while also being lightweight and comfortable.

“This is the third year that Draggin has sponsored the Rizla Suzuki team. We keep getting involved because the Rizla Suzuki team are great people and we believe in what one another are striving for. All the best to the team and Alvaro for a successful season!”
stated Fiona Mackintosh – Draggin, General Manager.

“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,” Paul Denning, Rizla Suzuki Team Manager, said in a statement for the press.

For those of you who don’t know this yet, Draggin are the makers of the only CE Approved motorcycle jean in the world. The story starts back in 1997, when Grant Mackintosh began marketing this new invention by getting dragged behind a motorbike, with the drag test starting out at a slow pace and gradually building up to over 110 km/h (68 mph).
