bicycle gloves


Kevlar was developed by Stephanie L. Kwolek in 1965. Originally used for racing tires, it’s now used for a wide variety of products, ranging from bicycle tires to safety gloves to body armor , because of its high tensile strength-to-weight ratio; by this measure it is 5 times stronger than steel. Kevlar is also what the infamous batsuit in made from, as well as many suits that former Robins and other heroes in DC comics wear. Sadly, Stephanie Kwolek passed away in 2014 at the age of 90.
