The EVOC LITESHIELD BACK PROTECTOR combines maximum protection against falls and a feather-light, highly effective construction with a great deal of flexibility. At the same time, it is completely impervious to temperature.
As is the case for most sport helmet manufacturers, Evoc uses an EPS construction, although theirs is specifically adapted to back protection requirements by means of a segmented, multi-layer approach. Besides featuring excellent shock-absorbing properties, this protection concept enables fall damage to be identified immediately, so that the protector can be individually replaced.
- CE-Norm EN 1621-2 + TÜV/GS
Materials and protective functions have been tested and certified by TÜV SÜD, according to EU norm 89/686/EWG for personal protective equipment (PPE), category 2. IN ADDITION, they have been certified in respect of product safety by TÜV/GS.
- CE EN 1621-2 REQUIREMENTS
With a residual force value of only 9.75 kN, the EVOC LITESHIELD BACK PROTECTOR achieves a damping effect that is almost double that required. This means that about 95% of the impact force is absorbed!
- LITESHIELD SYSTEM
The core component of the protector backpack system is the extra-wide, ergonomically shaped neoprene hip belt with Velcro fastening and a large heavy-duty buckle. This system transfers the main load onto the hips, namely right to the body’s centre of gravity. At the same time, the ergonomically cut shoulder straps keep the backpack comfortably in the predefined position to guarantee perfect back protection.
The necessary proximity to the back of the back protector is ensured through mesh elements, EVA foam with ventilation holes and a large, central ventilation channel for maximum air circulation.
Back length is critical for ensuring optimal protection. When calculating your own torso length, measure from the top of your hip to your shoulder.
