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

Bought this to replace the piece of foam in my Scorpion Stinger jacket (perforated leather jacket). It is nice that it doesn't make the jacket any tighter than with the stock foam in place. As the picture shows, the protector is more narrow at the bottom, it doesn't cover as much of my back as the stock foam but I'm sure it will provide better protection in a crash. One minor complaint is that it hinders some airflow as it is not perforated. It makes the jacket a bit warmer but not unbearable even in 90 degree weather.

Bought this helmet based on good reviews and for it being for slightly narrow heads. It replaces my dirt bike helmet and goggles for dual sport rides and is much quieter. Goggles do fit with this helmet and you can close the shield over them. With all the comments about how much air it flows, it is still comfortable to use in the winter with the vents closed. A few negatives are: at certain angles it whistles a little, it would be nice to have the first shield open setting be just cracked open a little vs. a couple inches open forcing air directly into your eyes, the visor is narrow, short, and non-adjustable so doesn't block too much sun, and it feels a little loose when riding. Per the head chart, I was a borderline L to XL and opted for the XL since all the helmets I had tried on at a local store I was an XL, but now that I've worn this one a little I wish I would have gone with a Large.
