STRATEGY
DYNAMIC PROTECTION FOR EXTREME ATHLETES


Founded in 2004, Sas-Tec has evolved into a technology leader for the production of high-end protectors for motorcyclists and extreme athletes. This development results not just from the growing market for protective equipment but also from the fact that Sas-Tec offers customers top-quality products that combine maximum protection with a high degree of comfort.
The new SC-Sport series is a family of protector modules in three sizes that allows the company to venture into new risky disciplines such as snowboarding, freeride biking and water sports. The underlying principle is always the same: maximum protection combined with maximum comfort for the wearer.

DESIGN
PERFORMANCE AT FIRST GLANCE

Protectors are often sold as independent products and must therefore succeed in making their qualities immediately apparent at the point of sale. Because the equipment aims to appeal to as many different groups of users as possible, its appearance does not focus explicitly on a certain type of sport.
The design of the SC-Sport series visualises lightness and dynamism, as well as ensuring clear differentiation versus competitors. The character of the product family is immediately recognisable, independently of the type or size of the equipment. The design also combines visual aspects with functional benefits: the openings draw attention to the ingenious air circulation system and give the sports product a protective yet dynamic appearance.

INNOVATION
INNOVATIVE VENTILATION FOR ENHANCED COMFORT

The meticulously positioned and designed vents prevent performance-reducing heat build-up under the protector – without affecting the high level of protection or safety rating. The protective element is also extremely flexible, allowing it to adapt to the body ergonomically. And the special protection foam isn’t damaged by collisions; instead, it absorbs the force of the impact by deforming and then returns to its original shape. As a result, it can withstand multiple incidents while transferring almost only half the residual force permitted by the relevant standards. The soft viscoelastic foam is light, hand washable and absorbs the energy of the impact progressively.
The three-dimensional shape of the outer shell with its flattened edges ensures optimal mobility and breathability – and thus succeeds in combining the protector’s distinctive, sporty appearance with a high level of safety.
