Rukka D30 Air Armour
« on: Jun 29, 2018, 06:00 PM »
I jumped on the V1k last night in my textiles but found the knee area very warm, the panel does get hot on this bike, not a problem normally but at the mo   :151:
The textiles are Dainese, as I like the full length shin protection but they are warm, however I have seen the D30 Rukka Air Armour which seem long enough to replace what I have.
Has anyone used used this stuff ?

I have a D30 back protector in my Held Jacket.

Never tried it out properly! but it is comfortable and flexible and quite light. I hardly know its there half the time.

Are your pants vented enough in that area to take advantage of the perforations in the armor?  My regular textiles aren't, even my mesh pants have a solid panel in that area, because it's a potential high friction zone.  I doubt they'd make much of a difference without a full mesh panel.
