ARMA is a revolutionary new energy absorbing material, designed to alter the way we think about protecting the human body from impact and injury. Gone are the days of bulky, uncomfortable, often heavy, body worn protection. This new generation material may be incorporated directly into a garment to shield against impacts and abrasions.
We incorporate ARMA impact protection pads into the critical areas of our garments, including the hip, shoulder and elbow, to offer BS 1621 approved impact and coverage protection.
ARMA can be washed more than 40 times at 30°C with no loss of impact performance properties.
Shock Freeze System
ARMA absorbs and dissipates energy greatly; reducing 80% of impact forces transmitted to the body.
Ultra Slim Padding
Even at a thickness of only 4 mm ARMA protects the body on hard impacts.
Unlike PU or EPS foams, ARMA can take multiple impacts onto the same point without being destroyed.
Air Circulation System
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.
Our ARMA range of parts are tested at the UK’s No1 Premier PPE (Personal protective equipment) Certification and Testing centre, https://www.satra.com/
Whilst there are no official BS/EN Road Cycling PPE standards ArmaUrto tests all garment parts to EN1621 and we're delighted to share with you that our products passed this standard. Feel free to contact us to request our test reports.
