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.”
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).
The jeans come in an Indian/Rokker branded wooden box (collectable).
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.”
