D30 LP1 Ar­mour


Motorcycle Monthly - - Products -

D3O’s new LP1 ar­mour range in­cludes knee, hip, el­bow and shoul­der pads, all of which are CE cer­ti­fied to Level 1 in am­bi­ent, wet, hot and cold con­di­tions. The D3O ma­te­rial is soft and flex­i­ble in nor­mal use, but stiff­ens un­der im­pact and be­cause of its vari­able rate stiff­en­ing, which also means it can be made thin­ner for a low-pro­file, less bulky and more com­fort­able de­sign. Plus, the new pro­tec­tors clev­erly use a tri­an­gu­lar mesh de­sign to im­prove air­flow by 45%.

Adam Tur­vey, D3O prin­ci­pal de­signer, said: “One of the key goals we picked out when de­sign­ing the LP1 range was bet­ter ven­ti­la­tion. We wanted to make our range of pro­tec­tors far more breath­able, while also main­tain­ing all the things that our cus­tomers re­ally love about our EVO range. “The new tri­an­gu­lar geom­e­try on the LP1s de­liv­ers just that. We tested over 1700 parts be­fore we were happy with the en­tire limb range and independent test­ing has shown the LP1s of­fer a 45% im­prove­ment in breatha­bil­ity. They are light­weight and flex­i­ble while also of­fer­ing the pro­tec­tion that cus­tomers ex­pect from D3O. The im­prove­ments will mean you’re more com­fort­able while riding, even if you’re out all day. If you’re more com­fort­able, you’ll con­cen­trate bet­ter and you’re less likely to have an ac­ci­dent.” For more in­for­ma­tion, visit: www.d30.com
