    The shoulder/ Elbow protectors are Level 2 from Knox (UK). The advantage of Knox protectors over sastec is that 1) It passes the CE tests of T+ and T- and in India T+ CE test should certainly be considered while you look for Level 2 protectors 2) Knox provides a 5 years warranty on protectors. The Knox protectors used in Storm Jacket are also the latest technology- Knox Microlock.

    Sastec and Powertector Level 2 protectors both don't pass these test.

    The Back protector is Powertector.
    Chest are EVA pads and upgradable to CE certified ones.
    It has external titanium sliders. (Added protections against slide)

    At Impact zones the Rynox Storm jacket has Invista (Du Pont) Cordura which is far more superior in terms of abrasion resistance than any denier of Polyester.

    I would recommend Level 2 ones but it'll depend if your jacket has the space for it. I don't think you can buy Knox separately, but SASTEC you can.

    Hi,
    Is anyone using chest protectors for offroad purpose?
    May the sun rise infront of me,
    the rain fall behind me and the wind follow me.
    May the angels guard my travels for they know what's ahead of me.
    Keep me safe through rolling hills, swirling turns and bad roads.
    Let the moon's light guide me through the night.
    Lord, thank you for letting me a Biker.
    Amen.

    Ride:- Hero Honda Impulse (present) , Tvs Apache RTR180(2015-17)
    Gears:- Shiro SH336 Carbon Helmet || Aspida Helios Jacket || Rynox Advento Pants || TBG Sport Gloves

    Also guys, I am looking for a jacket for myself. Primary requirement is city use, mesh jacket will do. Budget is 4000-8000. I need one with proper armours (atleast CE level 2 on shoulders and elbows, and upgradable option on the back).
    Solace sabre ce lvl 2 (back, shoulder, elbow) & ce lvl 1 chest armour, hydration pocket at back but its a mesh jacket.

    Don't know about sas-tec, but i think some of Powertector armour does passes T+ & T-, also rynox does sell them on their site.

    Hello All,

    So..I was thinking of picking up a few essential riding gear. Close to two weeks worth of reading and researching, I've shortlisted the following gear (need two of each, for wifey as well):

    Riding Jacket
    Rynox Stealth Evo V3

    Gloves
    Rynox Apex Evo
    OR
    ASPIDA Ares Full Gauntlet

    Pants
    Rynox Stealth Evo
    OR
    BBG Riding Pant
    (Though might buy this may a couple of months out). Would you recommend any knee protectors in the meanwhile?

    Any feedback/suggestions on the choices? I understand that some of them might not be in stock and I'm OK with waiting for a while to get something good.

    Also, I see that Aspida (and BBG) has a separate jacket for Women but didn't find anything similar in Rynox or TBG. Are these jackets generally unisex?

    Cheers,
    Sukesh

    Giving you a few gear choices that I have personally tried on and some of them that are new too.

    Riding jackets - Rynox Stealth evo v3 and Solace Furious v2 are 'the' best touring jackets out there, obviously design is your personal view, but none would let you down.

    Gloves - Rynox Apex Evo / Viaterra Grid. Both have Knox SPS sliders and these sliders work really well in enhancing safety.

    Pants - Strike the BBG out, keep Rynox and Solace as your options. Reason - better branded protectors.

    Knee protectors - Check Aspida and Mototech.

    Yes ladies jacket have a different cut and protector design. These jackets can be unisex, but it is your decision in the end. The adjustments make up for the cut. If you need to check ladies jackets, check Mototech and Solace, they have level 2 protectors from Safetech and Powertector respectively, both are well trusted.

    Goodluck !

    Thanks. That is really helpful. I have checked out the Solace Jackets online and they do look good. I will try them out for the fit and take a call.. Thanks again for your assistance!
