We were pushing around 220km/h on some of the straights before Keurbooms river. There was a nice long straight into a right hand corner, I was pushing too hard and ran deep into the corner and hit the barrier on my left and put the bike down in the corner. I must have skidded about 100m on the tar. My left knee was a bit bruised and swollen but no-where other than my ass was grazed. The kit was a life saver.
After falling from my bike while wearing my XKULCHA gear I went to the XKULCHA factory shop to purchase new gear and to show them how their EasyOvers saved my buttocks and knees during the fall. With that same smile that welcomed us, your shop manager, Hristina, told me that XKULCHA has a policy to exchange fall-damaged products free of charge! Because of their service and policy I was able to buy myself a pair of XKULCHA jeans and now have new jeans and EasyOvers.
On day one on the way to Underberg, after about 400KM into the tour I dropped the BMW in a bend and slid for about 8 meters across tar and dirt, the Xkulcha gear took the brunt of the slide and we emerged from the dust with no grazes. When looking for adventure gear I want something that will reduce personal injury and now having actually tested the Dakars they exceeded my expectations. The heavy duty nature of the fabric, critical padding and inner lining completely eliminated any grazes.

A car gave me a fright and I locked the front wheel and went down a lot harder than I imagined possible for a slow speed fall, I remember rolling and rolling for ages! Steel capped boots were totalled, gloves badly torn, jacket had holes in and the Xkulcha easy overs showing every place they saved my skin! The amazing thing was I was not a hospital case, paramedics checked me out and sent me off in the care of my friends.
On Friday I was involved in an accident when a driver turned right in front of me at an intersection. I connected with the car on the front left and went flying over the bonnet. If it wasn't for my Dakars I think my knee would have been badly ripped.
I had an accident on the Theewaterskloof side of Franschoek pass. It happened at around midday at a speed of approximately 60 km/h. The motorcycle had ramped skywards and when it came down, my left knee made first contact with the tar and became the primary energy dispersion point. Even though my Tibia fractured, the knee padding of the XKulcha Biker-X jeans prevented irreparable bone damage and I broke no skin i.e. not a single drop of blood was shed.
I sustained minimal physical industry all due to my EasyOvers that I was wearing on that fateful day. I will vouch for your product, the fabric held its own against the onslaught of the tar … leaving me with hardly any road-rash, and only deep tissue bruising which given the fall , is un avoidable. My faith rests in your product owing to the manner in which they served me…
I was involved in an accident recently. Luckily I was wearing your jeans at the time. The jeans protected my knees because they did not tear when I hit the tar. I did get like a 'carpet burn' though. A truly great product. Well done.
Taxi side swiped me, and I came down pretty hard. I was wearing a pair of your BikerX jeans at the time. I broke my leg quite badly and I went sliding on the road for a few meters, and not a mark on me. Those jeans held up perfectly, and saved me from loosing all the skin on my right leg.
I was involved in an accident with my bike where I slid on the tar for about 10-15 metres, coming off my bike @ 100 km/h after hitting a motorist that has no regard for the rules of the road. My pants was ripped on 2 or 3 places but never broke through and I was unhurt on my lower extremities.
