The Armalith 2.0 that equips all Bolidster jeans is … S T R E T C H!

This means that the fabric is able to stretch and return to the initial point. This effect of Denim Stretch is obtained by inserting into the composite architecture a dose of Lycra. This seems a regular process however it has led us to breaktrougth innovation to ensure this cold operation and thus preserve the full mechanical properties of the reinforcing fibers. As a result, this operation has a low impact energy and the elasticity is permanent, even after hundreds of washes (no bagging).

With the long stretch,

the fabric composition is:

57% Cotton

33% UHMWPE

10% Lycra

With the Power Stretch,

the fiber composition is: :

52% Cotton

42% UHMWPE
