Fast Company®'s newest line of armor
protectors are made by the German armor company SAS-TEC and employs an
"intelligent" foam to provide the best possible impact protection.
The black CE approved intelligent foam used in SAS-TEC armor functions
progressively by adapting it's level of impact absorption proportionally
to the force of the impact. Due to the entire foam construction of the
armor, the wearer is not limited in their range of movement as much as
with hard shell armor. At the same time the foam is of a lighter weight
by volume than that of hard shell armor and has no hard edges. SaS-Tec
armor also has a built-in memory effect that allows it to return to its
original shape after a deformation. Meaning that its possible to reuse
this armor after an impact. The CE-approved motorcycle armor can also be hand washed, since its level of water absorption is under 1%.
Most of the
unique features of this armor are due to its closed cell construction.
The closed cell design allows for the progressive impact absorption due
to the air trapped within the armor. A slow loading of pressure on the
foam allows for it to feel soft and pliable as the air has time to move,
while a severe impact will cause the armor to become more resilient.
The closed cell construction also is what allows the armor to be
washable, by resisting the absorption of water.
The armor is
constructed from polyurethane foam that has been molded into ergonomic
shapes that allow for the best possible level of coverage and
This CE-approved motorcycle armor should easily fit into the sewn-in pockets of the Draggin Comfort Jeans line.
