Don’t try this at home, we are professionals
The BikeBrewers’ team members are becoming true experts in ‘unboxing’ stuff in all shapes and forms.
Recently we had received a box filled with gear from the guys and girls at SA1NT.
Obviously we were anxious to see what Pandora was hiding and decided to share the unboxing with you all by video.

From down under to the top of the world
SA1NT originated in Melbourne Australia and, as with many other apparel brands it is designed for riders by riders. Which makes sense as riders know exactly what we need to protect ourselves.
Their team are passionate about motorbikes, but they grew tired of compromising looks for safety, or safety for fashion.
SA1NT apparel claims to delivers great freedom and form, with world first single layer protection. With no bulky layers or liners.
They boast about providing the very best in strength and impact abrasion resistant denim, while maintaining a classic style.
That made us very curious.
In their own words
“We create world first single layer protection by stretching, spinning and blending ballistic, industrial and military application threads with wearables like merino and cotton.
We are designing milling, weaving and knitting the latest impact abrasion resistant fibers with motorcycle denims, drills and base layer fabrics.
Designed to be worn all day and all night, our apparel allows the freedom to look as good on your bike as you do off it and most importantly stacks the odds in your favor when things go random.”
Hunter S. Thompson
They SA1NT team are inspired by a quote from this great writer who happens to be one of our all time heroes.
Part of the quote can be found on the SA1NT website, but we think it deserves to be presented to you in full glory:
“But with the throttle screwed on there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right … and that’s when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms. You can barely see at a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it … howling through a turn to the right, then to the left and down the long hill to Pacifica … letting off now, watching for cops, but only until the next dark stretch and another few seconds on the edge … The Edge … There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others — the living — are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later.
But the edge is still Out there. Or maybe it’s In. The association of motorcycles with LSD is no accident of publicity. They are both a means to an end, to the place of definitions.”
― Hunter S. Thompson, Hell’s Angels
Hunter Stockton Thompson (July 18, 1937 – February 20, 2005) was an American journalist and author, and the founder of the gonzo journalism movement.
He first rose to prominence with the publication of Hell’s Angels (1967), a book for which he spent a year living and riding with the Hells Angels motorcycle club to write a first-hand account of the lives and experiences of its members.
Thompson remains best known for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1971), a book first serialized in Rolling Stone in which he grapples with the implications of what he considered the failure of the 1960s counterculture movement. It was adapted on film twice: loosely in Where the Buffalo Roam starring Bill Murray as Thompson in 1980, and directly in 1998 by director Terry Gilliam in a film starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.
If you have not yet seen that movie, we strongly advise you to make up for this omission in your life.
Not just for boys!
It may not come as a surprise that SA1NT does not only produce cool gear for men.
They take good care of the ladies too.
Here are some examples of their female rider gear (jacket, pants)
