Rukka D3O Air Central Back Protector

The Rukka D30 Central Back Protector provides patented, CE approved and breathable protection. D30 Air has been developed specifically for Rukka and is a unique material that combines enhanced chemistry with product engineering to produce high performance shock absorption and impact protection. 

The D30 material contains intelligent molecules that flow freely when moving but lock together to absorb impact energy upon impact.

Features:

  • High performance shock absorption
  • Maximum flexibility
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Tested according to CE-standards
  • Excellent airflow through protector

Fits all Rukka and Olympia Jackets (men's and women's) sold by RevZilla

2014 and later Rukka Jackets (AiRider, Airman & Armaxion) include a slip-in pouch inside of the back protector pocket holding the back protector firmly in place. In previous models (such as Airway and Armas) some movement of the back protector within the pocket is possible.

Rukka D3O Air Back Protector 4 5 4 4
Excellent armor, but beware if you have an older Rukka suit I have an eight year old Rukka Airpower suit, and switched the original black rubbery armor out for the D30 armor. The armor is WAYYY better than anything else I have seen, and should be useful on a variety of other brands. However, beware of buying this for an older Rukka; the thicker armor causes a change in the fit of the jacket, and although the back protector works fine (except in a woman's jacket: you'll have to trim some of the foam off to get it to fit), it causes the shoulder armor to pull back, leaving the shoulders unprotected. It should work perfectly in a newer suit. February 20, 2014
This is much better than the foam one it is replacing. I am replacing the foam back protector from my Olympia jacket with the d3o from Rukka. December 16, 2013
Much more flexible than my old CE back protector I replaced the CE approved back protector in my Olympia Motorsports jackets with this. It should breathe better (although it's still too cold to test that) in warmer weather and is definitely less rigid. I've also replaced my elbow armor with this and have shoulder pads on order. March 11, 2013
Back protector is beefy but poorly designed I upgraded all the armor panels in my Rukka Airway jacket to the D3O pads, but this is the only pad that I felt was poorly designed. The default Rukka black air pad is much wider than this one and fills all the excess space at the back of the jacket. This D3O pad just sort of hangs there from the (small) velcro strap at the top of the armor pocket and swings around at your back. In fact, the loop to hook this pad into the jacket was too fat and I had to cut part of the pad so the tiny velcro strap could fit through it and connect. Overall, this pad was poorly designed and doesn't feel like it was designed for my jacket. I recommend all the OTHER D3O pads for the Rukka jacket (elbow, shoulder, hip, shin) except this one.

William G: I purchased a Belstaff Mojave jacket that did not include back protection. This protector fits the back pocket on the jacket and provides the same level of protection as the shoulder and elbow armour included with the jacket. Feb 8, 2014

Thomas H: Well I hate to say that I did have an opportunity to us the ce level 2 back protector I did a bars flip to the ground and felt the road hit was able to get up with no problem I hope it was due to the protection of the back protector I just had sore ribs for a few days but my bike took the worse about $3.000.00 worth of damage but I'm upright. You never feel it in your jacket and it's very comfortable . Hope that helps to answers your question. Mar 11, 2014

A s: No doesn't say anywhere. Great coverage good air flow but way too heavy.

I have this pad in my Olympia mesh jacket and it is VERY uncomfortable as it is pulling my jacket backward and tightening the jacket colar around my throat. I have to constantly reposition the pad and adjust my jacket.

You May have different results with a winter jacket.
Would not recommend for a summer jacket.

Christopher S: The protector is stamped "prEN1621-2:2010" for the test method. The "CE" stamp is off by itself, and the only other number is a "1" next to symbols for hot, cold, and motorcycle. So... I take it to be CE level 1. Other products explicitly say level 2 if they got it. That said, pad is solid and gets decent air through the jacket. Mar 10, 2014

Barry H: Early this winter I purchased a closeout Olympia Jacket. The protection was rather light and because I saved quite a bit on the jacket, I changed out all of the armor to D3O Protectors. The back coverage is great as well as the shoulders and elbows. Everything is super comfortable.

Tamarah Y: It's CE level 1. It's substantial, though, and should offer much better protection than some of the cheap level 1's I've come across. You'll be pleasantly surprised if you purchase this back protector. Mar 10, 2014

William G: It does say EN1621-2:2010 on the back protector. CE Level 2. Good center spine coverage, a little heavier than CE level 1, but has excellent airflow. Mar 10, 2014
