    {PRESS RELEASE}
    • Original Rokker Indian jeans launched at Bike Shed London
    • Indian branding is on the rear leather patch and pocket tab
    • On sale in dealers this summer and come in a collectable wooden box
    Two of the biggest brands in motorcycling and denim have teamed up to create high-quality riding jeans.

    Today at the Bike Shed London show, Indian Motorcycle and The Rokker Company unveiled the Original Rokker Indian Jeans featuring an Indian branded leather patch on the rear and pocket tab.

    These have been exclusively designed for Indian and will only available in Indian dealers from the end of June 2017 and come in a collectable wooden box (note that they will only be on sale in the EMEA region, not in North America).

    The two founders of The Rokker Company, Kai Glatt and Michael Kuratli, say they chose Indian because there isn’t any other brand in the motorcycle industry that has the tradition and image that matches so well.

    “We are both huge Indian fans,” exclaims Kai Glatt. “This cooperation is a great opportunity to continue loving what we do, as well as extending the Indian clothing range with the highest quality riding jeans available in the market. Indian is a premium motorcycle brand combined with a premium denim brand – it’s a perfect match.”

    [​IMG]

    The inner lining of the Original Rokker Indian Jeans is made of schoeller®-dynatec and guarantees protection from abrasion and heat up to 100 km/h.

    Having this protective fabric on the inside of the jeans makes it possible fro Rokker to create a fashionable style on the outside so that the cut and wash are a match for other leading denim brands out there.

    In the case of the Original Rokker Indian Jeans, bikers can choose between a raw and a washed version. The raw version comes with a zipper fly as opposed to the button fly used in the washed version (stonewashed).

    [​IMG]

    The jeans are breathable (so there’s no sweating even in high temperatures), wind resistant (prevents the rider from getting wind chill), water repellent (so rain beads on the fabric and runs off) and easy to clean (washable at 40°C and ironing after the wash increases the water repellence).

    Indian’s head of parts, garments and accessories, Andreas Geisinger, says: “I have looked at the Rokker brand for a long time now and I can’t hide my enthusiasm for how they use the best available functional materials in conjunction with original denim. Indian and Rokker just have a natural brand fit and I am happy we have joined forces with them to offer these high-quality and stylish jeans to the market and Indian Motorcycle owners.”

    Maybe we could order from a European Dealer if shipping was reasonable and cost of the jeans didn't cost their weight in gold.

    Regular jeans in Europe cost a first-born. These will cost a child and your immortal soul enslaved to Satan.

    281 pounds is about right for a kevlar lined heavyweight denim.

    I can't imagine they'd fly off the shelf at that price. Heck, thirty quid for a t-shirt is too rich for me.

    I suppose their marketing department knows what it's doing.

    Actually, if you have Progressive, they will reimburse the cost (read: cut you a check for purchase cost) of any gear that you were wearing in the event of an accident, so you kind of would have kevlar jeans insurance. Not to mention you wouldn't have to endure the physical pain involved.

    I do have Progressive and I didn't think they provided 1st party moto-insurance. My two bikes are insured through a subsidiary. I wasn't aware that they covered my gear.

    I've had Progressive for my Bike insurance since 1990. They have covered me in two accidents. Both times they gave me !00% value for ALL the clothes I was wearing - gloves, t-shirt, Jeans, Jacket - And it was my stated price - didn't have to show them receipts, only showed them what it would cost to replace them and they paid me that in full. They also took care of the hospital bills themselves and then went after the other insurance company (of the party who hit me) so I didn't have to deal with them.

    Exactly my story as well. I provided photos of the gear and I went ahead and gathered receipts because I felt funny about just stating a number. The check was cut to me within 48 hours of sending the info to them, no questions asked.

    It won't be $362 though as Indian apparel is worked out in USD then reworked to GBP to include shipping/tax etc. Most of the time I look at USD and it is nearly same in GBP so guess they will be about $299 if that price in ad is correct. Still a lot but I have a pair of Dainese jeans that cost more but are fantastic to wear

    A quid is a pound. We need lots of them to buy Indian-branded accessories in the UK.
