Thanks for embarking on this journey with us. Thesis Labs is a new motorcycle gear brand about to enter the market through our Kickstarter campaign which begins tomorrow. A Kickstarter launch wasn't always the plan but investors don't like to hear it isn't about profits. Our team has been working on this project for the past two years -- without a single paycheque.
Our multi-discipline team at Thesis originates in art and architecture, we're experienced in graphics, industrial design, and product development. We're based in beautiful Vancouver, BC and we've partnered with the award-winning NYC fashion incubator, Manufacture New York
to assist with our product development and manufacturing.
We're motorcycle enthusiasts and we're fashion enthusiasts. We're driven by our respect for the experience of exhilaration. We're advocates of the visceral, seeking to challenge and redefine the aesthetic of adrenaline. We are a culture of ever continuous development, always seeking the next reasonable, logical and superlative position to create our product -- regardless of profitability. Sustainability is at the core of our brand and we're dedicated solely to the production of refined, purposed and lasting products. Our products are a celebration of the artisan. Our fight is against the disposable. Against the evils of planned obsolescence.
We've been iterating extensively for the past two years, designing, building and researching while acquiring and testing an extensive material library. The Thesis Series Zero
product is the culmination of our research -- and the first in a series of highly innovative product. Constructed to last forever and designed to never require replacement, our contribution to the motorcycle apparel market.
Thesis exists to challenge the aesthetic paradigm of motorcycle protective apparel. Our design is user-centric, ergonomic in function and visually proportioned for the human form. Our Series Zero product provides the highest level of protective technology adapted to the language of contemporary fashion. Safety gear doesn't have to look or feel like safety gear.
We've completed a few rounds of testing and are about to be approved to the world's highest safety rating (CE EN 13595-1:2012 VO6). Kangaroo leather means half the weight (armoured 5.4lbs) and thickness (avg 1.3mm) of a comparably armoured product. Our products are ethically produced and sustainably sourced with the world’s best materials.
Our dual purpose Kangaroo leather jackets can be worn as both fashion garments and protective equipment. Thesis explores the medium between sophistication and adrenaline.
Our products feature exceptional quality control, our way of ensuring that our jackets will last forever. As the highest cost-to-produce garment in the industry, Series Zero
represents a new tier in motor-sports safety technology. This isn't about profits. It's about using the best technology and the best materials available to make the best gear possible.
Jackets are only the beginning. Thesis can't exist without your help and as a thank you to our backers, you’re only paying for the cost of production – we will not be generating profitability.
For the sake of brevity we'll leave it there. Anyone interested can check out the Kickstarter/FAQ for more much detailed product information. Link: Kickstarter
Looking like a Power Ranger is suddenly just a choice.
