D30 LP1 Armour
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
