Protection for back and chest: the Rukka protector vests “Kastor” and “CEPI”

Completing the comprehensive range of Rukka D3O Air protectors, two protector vests of different designs with chest and back protectors combine maximum protection with optimum comfort.

Developing the groundbreaking Rukka D3O Air protectors which are very soft, flexible and therefore comfortable while multiplying their crash energy absorption in the very moment an impact occurs, Rukka has achieved a decisive step in perfecting its motorcycle protective apparel, true to the company’s motto “Defence and Comfort”. Today, the textile jackets and trousers of the Finnish manufacturer exclusively use the protectors developed in

cooperation with British impact protection specialist D3O. In addition, Rukka offers all
Rukka D3O Air joint protectors and two different back protectors, a Central Back and a Full Back, for retrofitting. As a crowning achievement, Rukka now launches the protector vests Kastor and CEPI, made of highly elastic Stretch Cordura.
Kastor is a sleeveless jacket while CEPI is cut like a traditional waistcoat equipped with adjustable shoulder straps. Both are not only equipped with the full-size back protector CE-certified according to EN 1621-2 2014 but also with a newly developed, large chest protector that complies with the EU directive 89/686/ECC for personal protective equipment. Both vests with front zippers are highly comfortable to wear thanks to the soft and breathable protectors and their temperature regulating Outlast equipment. Both have a very body-hugging fit due to their cut and the elastic Cordura fabric. This means they can be worn comfortably beneath the motorcycle protective garments and there is no more risk of the protectors shifting out of place.
