BACK PROTECTION WITH TARGETED APPEAL


It’s not just extreme athletes who use protectors for certain parts of the body. Protective equipment is becoming increasingly important in recreational sport as well. Special safety measures for the back are particularly important when there is a risk of falls. The solution: back protectors with dimensions, shapes and stylistics specifically geared towards the expectations of sport-savvy target audiences.

Innovation

SPECIAL FOAM FOR IMPACT PROTECTION


SAS-TEC protectors are made of special foams that are not immediately destroyed on impact but can withstand multiple incidents – whilst transferring less than half the residual force permitted by the relevant standards. The soft viscoelastic foam is light, washable and absorbs the energy of the impact progressively.

Design

VISUALISED DYNAMICS


The fit and segmentation of the back protector is designed for particularly dynamic sports like skiing or snowboarding. Thanks to its flattened edges, it is virtually invisible under the user’s sportswear. The three-dimensional shape of the outer shell enhances both mobility and breathability – and adds up to a product with a characteristic, athletic appearance that provides a high level of safety for its user.
