About 100% Tarka Protection Vest
No matter how extreme the terrain or what boundaries you’re willing to push, the “Tarka” body armor provides unmatched comfort and protection. The full mesh body is designed to offer maximum mobility, ventilation, versatility, and SmartShock® Level 2 Impact Certified Protection.
The SMARTSHOCK® Impact Protection System is the pinnacle of intelligent MTB protection. Designed and developed to offer forward-thinking impact protection for today’s MTB riders, the SMARTSHOCK® system is integrated into our full range of knee, elbow, and body protection offering the ultimate in impact-diffusing equipment.
How It Works: The SMARTSHOCK® Impact Protection System improves safety by reducing energy transmission to the protected region of the body. During a direct impact, the protective system immediately begins redirecting and redistributing energy to minimize power absorption. While designed in the United States, we understand the importance of the European CE impact ratings for protective gear.
Level 1 : Limits energy transmission to less than 18kN when located over the chest or back. Limits energy transmission to less than 35 kN when located over the shoulder, elbow or knee.
Level 2: The highest limit on energy transmission to less than 15 kN when located over the chest. The highest limit on energy transmission to less than 20 kN when located over the shoulder, elbow or knee. The highest limit on energy transmission to less than 9 kN when located over the back.
Durable mesh body with anti-microbial and wicking properties for maximum comfort
Enhanced design lines for ideal fit, performance, and mobility
Stylish off-set front zipper for application and removal ease
Removable protection inserts provide versatility to match your riding demands
