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

I hope I never have to test this piece of equipment out but if I do I know it is better than what came with the jacket. This protector slid right into the pocket on the jacket and you can't tell it's there, what more can I ask for!

AltRider BMW R1200GS Glare Guard Shine light on your route and not in your eyes with the AltRider Glare Guard for the BMW R 1200 GS. The tough plastic piece fits tightly to the both the AltRider Stainless Steel Headlight Guard and the AltRider Lexan Headlight Guard , preventing reflected light from hitting the wind screen and blinding you. When utilizing a headlight guard, you may not realize how much glare is generated it until you try riding at night. AltRider created a unit that strategically blocks all the reflected light while still maintaining a great design thats integrated to the R 1200 GS styling. The glare guard attaches using two Torx headlight fasteners, making installation fast and easy. This piece enhances both the safety and look of your BMW. See the specifications tab to view dimensions to determine if this piece will fit with other headlight guards. Available in black. Constructed from a high-strength lightweight engineering polymer Features a stamped stainless steel AltRider logo Projects 0.25 inches from the highest point of the headlight lens Height 3 inches Width 12 inches Depth 2 inches Weight 0.1 lbs

This item comes under the heading of: Why isn't this installed as an OEM trim piece. Riding the GS at night with HID headlight replacement without this glare guard causes the light to illuminate the windshield to the point where it is difficult to see down the road. This item corrected it issue immediately and for what is a relatively cheap price considering most GS aftermarket bolt on items. I highly recommend it.

I purchased this jacket along with the Cayenne Pro Pants and just love it! The european fit is great, the fact that it is not crinkly is wonderful and the features can't be beat. After 35 years of wearing leather (Harley die hard) I started wearing textile products due to their waterproofing and ability to vent. After purchasing an R1200GS I started to look for a good dual purpose suite to wear on either bike. The BMW products and Held products caught my eye but the price was prohibitive. I discovered REV'IT in my research and decided to give it a try. A 15% off sale was a motivating factor too. The decision to spend the money was a little easier with the discount and when the product arrived I knew it was money well spent. You definitely get what you pay for! Great fit, great function and quality components. Very happy.

 REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants When REV'IT introduced the new Cayenne Pro Jacket , they were tasked with developing an equally strong pair of pants the CAYENNE PRO pants. All of the product improvements incorporated in the jacket, such as weight reduction, improved insulation properties and stitch reducing laminated reflection and Super fabric panels have also been incorporated in the new CAYENNE PRO textile pants. These pants can be zipped to the jacket by a short or an all around 360 degree connection zipper. For the serious commuter or adventure / touring rider, this is the pair of pants that will fulfill your needs . Available in standard, long and short leg lengths, the Cayenne Pro Pants will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Jacket. While made to work specifically with the Cayenne Pro Jacket, the Cayenne Pro Pants also function very well when paired with the REV'IT Sand Jacket or REV'IT Dragon Jacket. PROTECTION FEATURES Outershell DuPont Cordura 500D, DuPont Cordura1000D, SuperFabric Insulation detachable Exkin lining Protection SAS TEC CE protection, Temperfoam hippadding, double textile seat Waterproofing detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Breathability detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Visibility laminated reflective panels ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit pre-shaped close fit Adjustability adjustable waist, stretch panels at the knee and back Ventilation ventilation zippers on the upper leg Features short and long connection zipper Pockets 2 slit pockets A commonly asked question we get is what is the difference between the Cayenne Pro Pants and the Sand Pants Both are high-end 4-season pants, but the difference is in the materials used. The Cayenne Pro's use an Exkin thermal liner, shown to have half the weight / thickness of the Dupont liner in the Sand Pants. The Cayenne Pro's use SAS-TEC armor, and the Sand uses Pro-Life and while both are CE level 2, the SAS-TEC armor is softer (only turning hard on impact) and more comfortable. The last major difference is the use of SuperFabric on the impact areas in the Cayenne Pro.

After having purchased several pairs of textile riding pants I was ready for a premium pair (I also purchased the Cayenne Pro Jacket too). I looked at BMW products and Held products, both very high quality and very expensive. I was unable to see any REV'IT products locally since no stores carry the line so I had to rely on the information gleaned on the web. Once it arrived I was very impressed with the quality of the product and the fit. I have not had the opportunity to test it in the rain or cold and have not been able to test the air flow yet hence the medium score. Based on how the Jacket works I would expect nothing less from the pants.
