The D30 Air Shoulder Pads provide 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.
High performance shock absorption
Tested according to CE-standards
Excellent airflow through protector
Includes shoulder adaptor pouches
Sold as a pair
The Rukka warranty is valid for 2 (two) years from the date of purchase against faults in material or workmanship.
great shoulder protection
Used the included mesh pounches and sewed these into a leather jacket that did not have a pocket for armor. Mesh pouches made this very easy. The shoulder pads really craddle your entire shoulder and are thick where they need to be. Very light and very conforming. What more could you ask for?

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, it causes the shoulder armor to pull back, leaving the shoulders unprotected.I had to spend a long time trying different placements of the armor pockets to get it to where I hope it will work It should work perfectly in a newer suit.

Great build quality, but a non-standard size.
I purchased these for my Klim Traverse, thinking the extra venting would breath better. However they are several inches wider than the pockets in the jacket, and other CE shoulder pads. I should have read the Q/A.
No doubt they fit perfectly in the rukka jackets, but be advised if your wanting a universal fit.

PETER B asked:Anyone (including of course a Zilla gear geek) know if these would fit into an Olympia Dakar DS Jacket (2xl)? Love the jacket but not the included shoulder armor. The Rukka D30 back protector does fit according to the spec sheet.Jun 12, 2015
