SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

The SAS-TEC Back Protector looks to be a great upgrade to any of the flimsy foam back protectors that seem to be the norn in most jackets. Its a very sturdy piece of equipment that I can only hope will be as great if the time ever arrives that i need it. it was a perfect fit to the Joe Rocket Sonic 2,0 Jacket.

What can be said about arai helmets that has not been stated before. If your head is the right shape for a arai helmet then you will be happy to know your search for a helmet ends here. The vector 2 gives you everything that you could want in a helmet low weight, great visibility, and un-matched comfort. Not to mention a pure breed line of race tried and tested saftey features that make any of the aria helmets a easy choice.

Joe Rocket GPX 2.0 Leather Gloves are in my mind a perfect set of gloves. The sizing chart was spot on and the gloves proved a great amount of comfort and safety features, not to mention great air flow.

The Joe rocket Sonic 2.0 Jacket Is a Great bang for your buck Purchase. The jacket is well put together and looks like it would protect you well in case of a spill. The removable side panels provided excellent air flow while moving and like any leather jacket its a bit hot at a stop light. I upgraded the armor in the elbows and shoulders to the joe rocket brand CE armor, and i put in a sas-tec CE2 Back pad that was a perfect fit, while adding a slight bit of weight.
