Under the Desert Wolves, El Solitario curated an unprecedented collaboration program between primo brands, focusing on technology, to dissent barriers previously imposed on us. We developed the vehicles and garments needed for a ride into the African Sahara. The voyage served as the leitmotif for the creative process and the definitive test for every product.
El Solitario Protective Vandal with Dyneema® denim is one of the main results of this effort. It is indestructible and capable of passing the CE standard impact abrasion test EN13595 – offering protection for over 4 second of slide time – while still aging like regular denim.
Dyneema® fiber is 15x times stronger than steel and floats on water. It has long been used to moor oil rigs, sail ships, stop bullets and repair humans. Dyneema® denim, besides offering unparalleled protection, is also soft, light and thermally conductive – keeping your skin cool and dry in the sweatiest of conditions.
