Christoph: Now to the products. Where is the advantage when compared to pants and jackets?
Jan: The Dirtsuits have three advantages:
- First, there is no more mud or wet where jacket meets pants.
- After biking, I can just take the whole thing off, without getting my house or car dirty.
- Lastly, because it is a one piece, there isn’t a break in clothing where the cold or wet can get in.
Christoph: Riding MTB, can mean crashing. How durable are the materials?
Jan: That depends on the model. But that’s why we are introducing a super robust version for Downhill riding in the spring. We are also working on a repair kit to fix tears and make the suit waterproof again.
Christoph: How are the suits resistant to wear and tear?
Jan: Because we use various layers in the membrane, the outer surface of the suits can be very robust. We also work with triple stitch on the seams.
Christoph: Does dirtlej offer crash replacement?
Jan: We want to keep as many of our Dirtsuits out of the trash as possible. At the moment, we are working with local partners when it comes to repairs. If a repair isn’t possible, we are looking into a type of crash replacement, but those details still need to be figured out.
