PROTECTION 2009


2009 PROTECTION

With the highly anticipated introduction of our 2009 armour program, Race Face is once again a proven leader in the mountain bike protection biz. Working closely with our team of pro riders, Darren Berrecloth, Paul Basagoitia and Wayne Goss, 2009 sees radical improvements and innovation across our protection line. Highlights include: new design features and colours on our current FR and DH styles, new light-weight arms and legs, new knees, and new women’s and kid’s specific lines.

RALLY DH • Rider Inspired Design: Design and input tested by Race Face pro rider Wade Simmons. • High Density Hard shell: Constructed of 85% Polypropylene (PP) / 15% Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR), our custom moulded hard shell features a precision engineered matrix with reinforced dike system designed to absorb maximum impact and vibration across the shell. • Floating Back Panel: Stretches over the calf to secure placement, greatly increasing rider comfort while minimizing slip. • Knee Stabilization Pad: Centers the patella to ensure optimal armour placement. • Elbow / Forearm Protection: Two-piece construction allows for unrestricted articulation of the arm and greater control. • Knee / Shin Protection: Two-piece construction offers superior articulation and added protection in the event of unwanted ejection. • 15mm Perforated EVA Foam: Premium open cell foam enhances flow-through venting and moisture control and will not compress (i.e. ‘thin out’) over time. • Cordura PU2 fabric: Strategic fabric placement offers superior abrasion resistance in key areas. PU gel treatment increases water repellency properties. • Fit Specific Strapping System: Finer weave strap secured to locking D ring offers maximum strength when stressed. Slight modifications to the angle and placement of the straps offer better fit and function. Inner straps feature soft brushed weave for next-to-skin comfort. • Woven ‘grab tabs’: Offer easy adjust with gloves. • TPR branding so you can represent.

RALLY FR • Rider Inspired Design: Design and input tested by Race Face pro riders Darren Berrecloth and Paul Basagoitia. • High Density Hard shell: Constructed of 85% Polypropylene (PP) / 15% Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR), our custom moulded hard shell features a precision engineered matrix with reinforced dike system designed to absorb maximum impact and vibration across the shell. • Elbow / Forearm Protection: Two-piece construction allows for unrestricted articulation of the arm and greater control. Reduced lycra panel secures placement while reducing allover weight. • Knee / Shin Protection: Two-piece construction offers superior articulation and added protection in the event of unwanted ejection. • Open Back: Offers maximum breathability on climbs, shuttles and descents. • 13mm Perforated EVA Foam: Premium lightweight, open cell foam enhances flow-through venting and moisture control and will not compress (i.e. ‘thin out’) over time. • Tight Weave Mesh: Increased hole-density offers maximum breathability while finer weave increases strength, durability and reduces overall weight. • 600D Nylon fabric: Strategic fabric placement offers superior abrasion resistance in key areas. PU gel treatment increases water repellency properties. • Fit Specific Strapping System: Finer weave strap secured to locking D ring offers maximum strength when stressed. Slight modifications to the angle and placement of the straps offer better fit and function.

Dig Knee Protection • Rider Inspired Design: Design and input tested by Race Face pro rider Wayne Goss. • Low Profile Protection: The perfect marriage of hard shell and soft shell construction, the new RF knee design is less restrictive offering the ultimate in freedom of movement. • 600D Nylon Fabric: Strategic fabric placement offers superior abrasion resistance along front panel. PU gel treatment increases water repellency properties. • High Density Pliable shell: Constructed of 90% Lowdensity polyethylene (LDPE) / 10% Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR), our custom knee is designed to absorb maximum impact yet retains flexibility. • 3mm Perforated Neoprene: Premium lightweight neoprene features increased hole-density to enhance flow-through venting and moisture control. Inner Wicking terry material laminated to inside for increased next-to-skin comfort. • Padded Side Walls: Triple density foam padding at sides, backed with velvet for rider comfort, offers increased coverage and protection. • Knee Stabilization Pad: Hidden stabilization pad centers the knee and minimizes slip to ensure optimal support throughout the knee’s full range of motion. • Fit Specific Strapping System: Finer weave strap offers maximum strength when stressed. • Woven ‘grab tabs’: Offer easy adjust with gloves. • Urban-inspired allover print.
