The SP120 LITE range is a high performance protective motorcycle jean, tested to the incoming en17092 standard (currently in draft). The SP120 LITE range has achieved the AAA rating (120 KPH) for abrasion resistance.
The SP120 LITE Basalt is a fashionable denim jean, available in Slim Straight and Easy. Bull-it has optimized the ride height of the waist to ensure the best coverage, comfort and fit in a riding position. Fashion is achieved through the cut of the slim, straight and easy leg.

What is Covec?
Bull-it's partner Covec Ltd is a company focused on 'Technical Textiles'. These are textiles made from yarns with engineered solutions, they can be synthetic fibers mixed with natural fibers or engineered synthetic fibers produced to meet performance criteria.
Covec Oneskin Stealth, SP120 LITE and SP120 SR6 are unique laminated and single-layer constructions consisting of around 280 up to 450 gsm knitted textiles made of high-performance yarn. This offers the user strong, lightweight and comfortable protective clothing. Covec materials are tested against EN17092 (draft) for impact and abrasion resistance.
Covec Stealth, SP120 LITE and SP120 SR6 offer certain advantages over more traditional materials like Aramids and UHMWPE's and a lot of advantages over polyamide yarns (like nylon) and polyesters yarns. Depending on the material you compare it with, Covec yarn has higher abrasion resistance, higher cut resistance, lower friction heat transfer and is more resistant to wear for prolonged performance.
