WE TOOK WHAT WE KNOW BEST - OUR RELIABLE, TRIED & TRUE
TRADITIONAL CANVAS WEAVE - AND MADE IT BETTER.
DEVELOPING A UNIQUE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS WHICH FUSES
PARA-ARAMID FIBRES DIRECTLY WITH TRADITIONAL HEAVY COTTON THREAD.
WHAT IS K-CANVAS®?
DEVELOPED IN AN OLD FARMERS WORKSHOP BY THE CLEVER FOLK AT EARNEST.
A long time project for the Earnest team: Create the toughest fabric to work in, all while remaining comfortable and well fitted for everyday wear. A multi layer material just wasn’t going to cut it here.
THE END RESULT, A SINGLE-LAYER 13OZ. CANVAS, UNIQUELY CONSTRUCTED UTILIZING 48% DUPONT KEVLAR®
How much better you ask? How does 20x the tensile strength of regular work pants sound?
Finally, a material you can weld, grind and beat on in the workshop, then thrash around the street with confidence.
K-CANVAS® vs. REGULAR
World’s first work canvas CE Rated for motorcycle use under the new coming prEN 17092* Certification Standard.
Far exceeding the slide time/abrasion resistance, seam strength & tear strength standards. K-CANVAS® received Class A certification for abrasion & strength, with Class B overall - the highest possible CE certification without the presence of impact protectors.
"The plan was never to develop our own material for motorcycle use, it just happened that way."
Slash & tear resistant
Impact, burst and abrasion resistant
Weld & spark friendly
