The Arma range of parts are tested at the UK’s No1 Premier PPE (Personal protective equipment) Certification and Testing centre, Satra. Whilst there is currently no official testing standards for protective road cycling equipment, at ArmaUrto we ensure that all our impact protection ARMA parts are tested to EN1621-1 standard — the test is used to assess the protective qualities of armour worn on the limb joints of a motorcycle rider. No product makes it to the consumer unless it has passed this standard.
ARMA is fully machine washable at 30°C with no loss of impact performance properties
ARMA absorbs and dissipates energy greatly; greatly reducing up to 80% of impact forces transmitted to the body.
Even at a thickness of only 4mm ARMA protects the body on hard impacts.
Unlike PU or EPS foams, ARMA can take multiple impacts onto the same point without being destroyed.
ARMA is based on an open re-entrant structure, allowing natural ventilation and airflow around the body.
ARMA shows no impact performance losses at high (+40°C) and low (-20°C) temperatures.
