High-tech protectors made out of V10 are sewn-in in every Ribcap. These are laminated with a thin layer of high quality shock-absorber SAF which harden at low temperatures.
The laminate V10-SAF has the following characteristics:
- Energy absorbtion thanks to viscoelastic properties
- Protection effect also in cold and wet conditions
- light weight
- porous and breathable
- free of solvents
We've done extensive testing at the university of Strassbourg: Via the link below you can find the test results.
We refer to the PPE directive 89/686/EEC. The ribcap provides protection against minimal risks.
