Wearing hip protectors can greatly reduce the risk of injuries to the hip joints and spine by diverting and absorbing energy from a crash. The Rev’it! Tryonic Seesoft Hip protectors are made of a highly impact-resistant blend of synthetic memory foam that is multi-impact rated and CE Certified to the European standard EN1621-1:2012. The protectors are composed of multiple layers. The memory foam will absorb the first impact but the transmitted energy to the joint is further reduced by the shifting layer concept. The different layers employ a unique shifting-layer feature that provides extra protection in the event of a crash. When the protector is under the impact, the individual memory foam layers will shift relative to each other, which disperses the force of the crash over a larger surface area and effectively minimizes the force that is transmitted to the body.
Sold as a pair.
Note: Rev’It! made a production change to all pant hip armor pockets in 2014. Your Rev’It! Pants must have hip armor pockets with a blue Tryonic label, as shown below, for these hip protectors to fit correctly. For pants that do not have the blue Tryonic label, use the Sas-Tec Replacement Hip Armor.
