The Resurgence Gear Café Racer Selvedge jean is a homage to the past, the Selvedge denim is woven in the old fashioned way on a shuttle loom so it won’t fray, ravel or curl, and is identified by the synonymous red stripes to its edge.
The ladies Café Racer is a skinny leg cut jean with a high waist and is typically worn with its cuffs turned up, why have red stripes and not show them! It is 60% lined with PEKEV, and like all Resurgence Gear jeans comes with adjustable knee, and hip armour from D3O. Offering the highest levels of protection in a high fashion format.
Every biker knows that in the event of an accident a person must have:
Pushing the limits of Aramids and Ethylene fibres, we use only the highest quality spinning techniques available. Improving tensile strength and converting them into fabrics using exclusively elite blends we developed a 3rd generation PEKEV® fabric – this is one of the strongest and most stable fabrics in the world!
Made from the world’s toughest polymer based material, it has the highest breaking point for yarn. The tensile strength of the overall fabric is unsurpassed among all contemporary protection layers. It has the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made, it’s highly resistant to corrosive chemicals (with exception of oxidizing acids), has extremely low moisture absorption, a very low coefficient of friction, is self-lubricating and is highly resistant to abrasion – in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. It is highly resistant to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV radiation, and micro-organisms.
Our fabric is internationally field tested and ready for the most demanding motorbike riders of the world. Where other brands fail to perform in safety, durability and comfort we excel – wash after wash and drag after drag!
Unlike aramid fabric which degrades quickly PEKEV® is strong against:
Ionic enzyme washing. In 90% of cases aramid fibres are treated with ionic enzymes when washing denim, so performance is affected right from the point of manufacturing. Aramids are sensitive to acids. PEKEV® is unaffected.
Bleach. Chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) treatment completely destroys the strength of aramid fabrics. PEKEV® remains unaffected.
Ultra violet (sunlight to you and me). In strong sunlight, or a high UV environment, aramid fibres degrade and life cycle is reduced. With PEKEV® there is no degredation and the fibres are unaffected.
Moisture. Aramid strength is affected by moisture and washing. PEKEV® is again not affected.
Detergents. Superior chemical resistance means that the performance of PEKEV® is unaffected by these.
Heat dispersion. Most aramid fabrics retain heat and do not breathe PEKEV® disperses body heat and is breathable, so keeps you cool comfortable and able to focus even on long runs on sunny days.
The D3O® T5 EVO X utilises the latest material innovation from D3O which offers increased durability.
The parts continue to offer great impact protection whilst remaining low profile and lightweight. The range includes knee, hip, shoulder and elbow pads which are CE certified to level 1 across ambient, wet and cold conditions.

Launched in Canada in 2013, Resurgence Gear entered the market with an innovative protective lining material PEKEV®, which was the result of around ten years material and design research. We became masters of our craft when we were developing motorcycle jeans for other brands. However, during this period we soon became dissatisfied with the absence of style and subpar levels of protection that these brands were offering.
As a result, we found ourselves on a mission to design motorcycle clothing that gave the highest level of protection in combination with comfort and style. We aimed to produce motorcycle clothing that was as comfortable to wear on and off the bike, without taking away from the fundamentals of protection offered by PEKEV®, retaining its super high strength and high levels of resistance to abrasion.
At the end of 2013, Resurgence Gear submitted the Voyager jean to a European Union approved test laboratory, Satra, for testing and certification for the European motorcycle clothing protection standard of CE EN13595-1. The aim was to achieve the coveted Level 2 status. As of 2014, the Voyager jean not only surpassed the CE EN13595-1 testing pass score for the key abrasion resistance, seam burst and impact cut resistance measures, but blew them apart. The jeans pass the 4 seconds abrasion resistance for level 1 and the 7 seconds for level 2.
The motorcycle jeans have currently exceeded all of the other tests with an amazing record of 10.83 seconds. Achieving its full certification for both men and ladies, which are also a first recorded for the ladies jeans. This was followed by a cargo trouser using PEKEV® lining, the Cruiser. This, too, was submitted for CE EN13595-1 testing and has equally achieved a level 2 status, with an impressive 8.17 seconds abrasion resistance.
We’ve continued to innovate in both design, style and protection and now have a wide variety of jeans, trousers and jackets which all combine the innovate PEKEV®lining with a sense of comfort and style.
