X-Concept chest protector and Siachen body suit
Prolific Italian off-road parts, accessory and apparel specialist UFO Plast has followed up on the success it has had with its award-winning Limited Edition anti-shock ‘Diamond’ helmet with sliding visor system by introducing several more new lines and additions to existing programmes for 2018.
Designed to provide the highest protection with maximum comfort for all off-road riders, the new 100% Made in Italy X-Concept is the latest chest protector developed by the UFO Plast R&D team.
Characterised by an exclusive rigid plastic X-joint that is said to guarantee “a remarkable central strength without compromising its flexibility”, it has useful lateral supports, a fast and easy lock, large size removable straps to “make it extremely protective and versatile” and an internal EC-approved micro shock rear protection with an “accurate ergonomic design to enhance freedom of movement and optimise ventilation.”
Also seen here, the UFO Siachen body suit has been developed by adopting INUTEQ-DRY refreshing evaporative technology, which offers its best performance in low and medium humidity, non-extreme ambient conditions where the intensity of airflow on the body can determine the effects and duration of the refreshing action.
Lightweight and said to be extremely comfortable and lightweight, it adheres perfectly to the body thanks to its ergonomic design, and unlike many other body suits, it doesn’t require the use of refrigeration or chemicals to reduce thermal stress and fatigue and maintains a pleasant, fresh feeling for the rider.
UFO Plast says that “thanks to the unique technology used (it is not moistened or wet), the vest can be worn under other garments. The exclusive cooling technology means it remains 100% dry inside and outside, has refreshing effects up to 15°C/59°F lower than ambient temperature for up to three days, is machine washable, has antibacterial properties, is easy to use and reuse and is EU-approved (EC REACH Regulation No. 1907/2006).”
Finally, UFO Plast has added to its popular Sirius and Bullet goggles with its “latest generation” Mystic – a price-point option that still has “cutting-edge features”, including extreme lightness, wide vision, ergonomic design, removable nose protection and excellent fitting to the radius of different curvature helmet models. The soft sponge cloth that lines the rim improves adhesion and prevents leaks of perspiration.
