This was always the vision
It all started with an idea of could we make motorcycle clothing that doesn’t make you look like a motorcycle rider? What if women could ride a motorcycle and feel feminine? and still wear protection? What if female riders did not have to resort to buying male motorcycle clothing because they cannot find anything that fits them!?
Well…we listened to what you said and now the vision has become a reality! After many conversations, samples, tests, and trials, we believe we have created a product that will set a new benchmark for female motorcycle clothing.
Imagine all the different outfits you can now wear while you ride to that café, the pub, the music concert, the football, the tennis, the comedy show, the first date, the office, the job interview and the possibilities are endless because we go with your lifestyle.
You get to decide what kind of rider you want to be.
We designed this for you.
Designed to protect you and make you look good
Our high waisted design is based on ensuring as much comfort and protection. Nylon and polyester are both lightweight and durable synthetic fabrics that share many of the same properties, such as easy care, stretch resistance and shrink resistance. Nylon is softer than polyester but also stronger, while polyester is faster drying and abrasion resistant.
The second outer layer is a much stronger nylon blend that has Kevlar weaved into it for more added abrasion resistance. The Kevlar material is in the areas that are regarded as high impact zones with the armour secured tightly beneath this strong layer of stretch Kevlar in both the hip and knee areas.
CE level 2 Armour that is only 7mm thick.
When we began to design our garments, we discovered that the current armour available on the market was too big or too bulky to really work with our designs.
Until we discovered this armour by Norsorex! But please don’t let the slim and super flexible design throw you, the Nano-dampening technology in this armour was exactly what we were looking for.
It’s certified level 2 protectors offer not only CE Norm 1621-1:2012 and 1621-2:2014, but also optimal comfort. It provides maximum protection and unlocks a whole new freedom of movement.
The Meaning of Soo-léaina
There are 2 stories behind this name for our women’s range. When the design started to take form with what you see today, it was particularly important for us to ensure we produced a garment that was feminine for our female riders. Not only to feel feminine, but a name that was empowering and elegant.
If you read Nemean’s Story, then you are aware of the Nemean lion’s connection to Greek mythology and why we feel it symbolises the motorcycle rider. Léaina in Greek translates to ‘lioness’, for a lioness is the queen of the jungle with her majesty, strength, and courage.
Soo is the name of the founder’s mother. Nemean would not be here today without her protection, compassion, and encouragement. Therefore, it was necessary to have her name immortalised in our brand’s history from the very beginning.
“Love love love the feel of the fabric! The armour feels very comfortable and non-intrusive to the body at all. My tight jeans fit over easy and the armour is not as visible as I initially thought it would be! I would absolutely buy these for my inner-city riding /street riding”
