Executive summary about leather motorcycle clothing by Rick K
Leather with Lycra (LWL) is "leather with stretch", a new and interesting technology that somehow combines leather with stretchy Lycra with pretty amazing results. The Lycra is combined with the leather and it allows the leather to stretch and to retain its shape. We haven't yet tried any motorcycle clothing made with LWL, but it sure seems like a motorcycle jacket or pants would be a lot more comfortable with LWL than plain old stiff leather by itself -- especially if it was used in the shoulders, elbows and knees.
Leather with Lycra is currently used in performance bicycle clothing for comfort and for the abrasion protection that it offers. Since plain leather has no memory, it tends to lose its shape over time. But the Leather with Lycra is supposed to keep its shape almost indefinitely.
Leather with Lycra is something like 16 times more abrasion resistant than Cordura when run through a Wyzenbeek test, which is a standard test used to measure abrasion in fabrics, was kept on the testing machine until a "slight discoloration of material" was noticed at 50,000 cycles.
The Leather with Lycra process can be used on any thickness of leather. Hopefully we'll see Leather With Lycra in some motorcycle products very soon -- and, of course, we'll try to be the first to bring you a review!
