SAS-TEC Back Protector

Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules.  It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts.

SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and  fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades.

Perfect I hope this thing never gets put to the test. Nevertheless, I feel much more safe and confident in my gear. I have a Scorpion Hat Trick II, size M jacket and I got the SC-1/11 protector. Fits my jacket almost perfectly. I even left the foam padding that came with the jacket in there for even more protection. No level of discomfort at all. I highly recommend this back protector. July 22, 2014
excellent fit fits all of my jackets and has great protection dor my back July 21, 2014
Fit my jacket perfectly I have a speed and strength seven sins jacket. I was able to fit the protector without having to do any cutting. I like knowing it's there--but I can't even say I notice it while riding. July 10, 2014
Great Option Like everyone else I have no intention of hitting the pavement, but just in case it's good to have viable protection. The standard foam back pad that comes in most jackets is not confidence-inspiring, and this SAS-TEC pad is a great option. It feels extremely durable without being excessively bulky. The best part is that it's reasonably pliant but will stiffen instantly when impacted. This "non-Newtonian" sort of behavior (think silly putty) means you don't sacrifice protection for comfort. June 30, 2014
Absolutely first rate I got the SC-1/11. It is the same size and shape as Vanson's level 1 protector, fits my Sportrider jacket and gives me level 2 coverage. I just added velcro. The SC-1/11 is incredibly light at 9 0z. It is not floppy flexible but flows to conform to your body. It easily passes the, "wack me in the back", tests we all try. SAS indicates a 10 year life under normal conditions, which is about 4 times as long as at least one competitor. This is a first rate piece of kit. June 3, 2014
Upgrade Much better than L2 Back Protector that came with the JR Alter Ego 3.0. This is comfortable & it's soft to the touch. I can bend & fold my jacket which proves it's more comfortable to ride. NO CUTTING. If you have my jacket, you don't have to cut the protector. Just out with the old & in with the new. I just wish SAS-TEC made an L3 version. Also, emailed them to find out airflow need in desert heat. 10mm Max hole size at 25mm Min distance apart from other holes. I used an expended 9mm casing, sharpened & pushed through. They advised ANY modification removes their L2 guarantee. Hope this helps. March 3, 2014
A good investment Fits my Joe Rocket Radar, Blaster 4.0, and Triumph Steve McQueen Classic jackets. Despite being about or more than twice as thick as the stock hard foam pad that the Joe Rockets come with, the SAS-TEC protector is much more malleable and makes the jackets fit even better, especially in a tuck where the protector's "wings" won't be pulling back on your sleeves. It has some big holes in it which I'm sure are for structural purposes but they serve for a bit of ventilation. Whether or not I'll ever put it to use, its well worth its price for the safety of mind and comfort alone. February 19, 2014
Does its job I have yet to test this product (fingers crossed I never do), so this review will be from my experience as a daily rider wearing it. I first got ahold of this back protector and thought it would be way to thick and bulky to put in my leather jacket, but I went ahead anyway. I was very surprised it by how little it actually was noticeable, really only from behind, and then you only see like what looks like a hunch or something. With all that In mind I ride with more peace of mind knowing that If I did get in an accident, that Im wearing something, and just that little bit more safe from injury. I do believe this to be a great purchase for everyone that rides. Also note that the original foam pad in jackets isn't usually real armor, its just foam, a light layer or simple foam.

Chris B: Superior protection to current stock pad at an affordable price. Good reviews and sizing looks right. Jul 10, 2014
James C W: To upgrade and protect Jun 19, 2014
Nathan W: Purchased for my Rev'it Airwave jacket, seems to offer great protection, but slightly uncomfortable to wear. I have since switched new back protection, which flexes better in cold (Forcefield brand). Apr 24, 2014
Henry R: I really like how during the summer it molds to your back and is very comfortable. I would reccommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade back panel. Apr 11, 2014
Holden A: Replace foam on alpine star gp pro jacket Mar 22, 2014
David G: I bought a First Gear "Rainier"and its back protector made me afraid. So I got this and cut it to fit my Jacket. Kinda stiff in the cold. Mar 21, 2014
graham s: Had Cayenne jacket for several years and this is a good upgrade..comfortable once warmed up by body heat. Mar 18, 2014
Richard A: I bought TWO of these! I replaced the cheap one in my Joe Rocket Summer ballistic jacket last year and liked the fit and feel of this item so when Fall came around and I moved to my Tourmaster Transition 3 jacked, I got one for that too. Found that replacing back protectors is a little cumbersome and this is not a very expensive piece of gear given what it provides so I felt comfortable buying a second one. Mar 7, 2014
B R: replacement Mar 6, 2014
David M: The stock Revit inserts are light foam pads. This would be the only Revit shortcoming, but very common in riding gear manufacturers. I bought this to replace the Revit foam pad. I had to trim it a bit, but it is perfects, and about 1000 times more protective than the light foam pad. Feb 26, 2014
Greg W: Because I enjoy controlling my bladder and bowel habits and do not want to be a paraplegic. Dec 14, 2013

Richard P asked: Hi,

I've hear that this jacket stiffens in cold temperatures;
I'm going to use this in Western Australia which has hot summers and mild winters (no less than about 5 degrees celsius) so would this jacket still flex easily?

Also does this offer more protection than a D3o Viper insert?
Sep 1, 2013

A s: If you leave in in the cold or expose to the elements it will stiffen but if its cold you'll be wearing it and you 97 degrees Farenheit so it should be flexible even if its cold. This gives great protection as this material is used to line the bottom shoe of a bomb specialist. Call your local store to show you the difference between those materials. They should have a demo ball on both materials. The ball that bounces less absorbs and disperses the energy better. If I were you I would also consider Tpro level 2 back armor they absorb and diapers the energy real well. Check out YouTube people talk and have opinions on this materials under different temp and forces its subjected to. I have both Sastech and Tpro and I like them both for back protectors but for elbows I like Sastech better due to the fact it's low profile and molds to the body better but if its cold and suddenly flex it can break but the back protector has moreaterial and I don't think can snap that easily however I never tried. Good luck and rubber side down. Sep 25, 2013

A s: It does stiffen when cold. It is not a lot of fun to put on if left overnight in the garage. But if you put it on at room temperature your body heat will keep it pliable. I ride in below freezing temperatures regularly, and all my SAS-TEC stuff is fine.

I have no experience with the Viper insert, so I cannot comment on that.

Paul Y: Yes, it does stiffen some and can feel a bit odd when first put on if the jacket was stored in a way that the protector is curved, BUT, body heat quickly allows the unit to regain a proper shape, even when cold out. Not an issue IMO. Sep 25, 2013

Allan S: I'm not sure of the original fit in your jacket, but I've bought a couple of these and found that they trim super easy. Just use a pair of heavy duty scissors or a pair of shears and trim away. On the Joe Rocket jackets that I've inserted this back protector into, I've used the cheap (styrofoam?) back protector which came with the jacket as a template. Time for the whole process: 5-10 minutes. Aug 12, 2013

Larry R: I have the Tornado Rev'it vented jacket size 56 and my wife has the womens version in size 40. The back protector is the same size for both and I had to trim the SC-1/11 a small amount on the top end and top corners to get it to fit. I don't know if the Airwave and Tornado have the same size back protector. Larry Aug 12, 2013

Genevieve G: I just got the back protector and you were right. I just have to trim the top corners and the top a bit, but the bottom part seems to fit well. Aug 15, 2013
Rick H: I ordered the one that was suggested for my jacket, Cayenne Pro XL, and it fit without any altering.

I did notice a little more weight and heat but after a year and 15K miles I hardly know it is there. The security over the foam is worth it.

Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: Hi,

I'd like to order the SAS-TEC back protector and trim it fit my Icon Accelerant Jacket. I understand that cutting the piece voids my warranty on the product, but anything is better than the foam piece that is currently in my jacket; unfortunately, Icon's own Stryker Back Protector does not fit inside my accelerant jacket.

Can you please let me know how the sizing works with the SAS-TEC, the sizing choices are: 1/11, 1/12 and 1/16. Which is the largest of the three? I'd like to order the largest one to make sure I get the largest piece and trim off the excess.

Looking forward to hearing from someone soon.

WingRider: Kahlil,

All I can give you for advice is my opinion. For the past thirty years I have worked in Law Enforcement, and wish I could forget some of the accident scenes I have been to.

I am not familiar with your jacket or how much, or what type of protection it provides I am sure it is probably is a good product, but one thing I can say is that I personally want "EVERY INCH or CENTIMETER" of protection on that I will still be able to wear comfortably.

The reason I say comfortably is because I know that if it is not comfortable, or at least tolerable people tend "NOT" to wear it even if they have it. (bullet proof vest are no different).

That being said, personally I would not recommend cutting anything off the SAS-TEC Back Protector. I had originally bought a different jacket than I have now and I was in the same situation. So after thinking of all the ways I could customize the jacket itself or cut the protector i finally decided to go ahead and get the jacket it was actually designed for. Yeah, it meant giving up more bucks, but I can honestly say I think it is worth it.

I hope I will never have to put the protective products I wear to the test, but I am glad we have them available to wear.

Good luck with your decision, and Ride Safe.

Chris K: The Sas-Tec Back Protector is offered in several sizes based on the jacket size that you need, however, considering that you are planning to alter it, the largest size is the SC-1/16. That should allow you the most amount of room to play with as you trim the protector. Apr 1, 2011

Tan W asked: May I know if the SAS-TEC Back Protector fit into REV'IT! Airwave Jacket? Jan 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Allan S: I'm not sure how well the SAS-TEC back protector will fit your REV'IT jacket, AS IS, but it is amazingly easy to trim down to fit almost any jacket. It cuts very easily with either a strong pair of scissors/shears or a utility knife. I bought mine for a Joe Rocket jacket and the SAS pad was too big to fit into the existing mounting pockets--I merely placed the original Joe Rocket back protector on top of the somewhat larger SAS one and traced the outline with a pen, then trimmed off the excess with a pair of scissors. It took all of 5 minutes. Honest. Jan 21, 2014
Reply to Allan Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
John H: I'll second Allan's answer. First, I am convinced that SAS-TEC provides the best back protection available. (I am less certain about knee, elbow, and shoulder protection. A lot of companies have been coming out with improved armor for those areas.)

I have a Forcefield Pro Sub 4 back protector, which they claim is the best on the market. With assistance of my wife, and a little league aluminum baseball bat I did a losely scientific comparison of the Sub 4 compared to the SAS-TEC. (I think I describe the experiment in my review of the SAS-TEC back protector.) The SAS-TEC absorbed substantially harder swings than the Sub 4.

I use a box-cutter to shape the SAS-TEC back protectors. (Be careful with any box-cutter, you are cutting with a razor blade and can cut yourself seriously if you are careless. Most recently I replace the stock (flimsy) back armor in an ICON Accelerant Leather with a SAS-TEC back protector. I'd also recommend looking carefully to see how well the flimsy foam fits whatever jacket you are upgrading. There was quite a bit a room for it to move in the Icon jacket. By using it as only a rough template, I was able to replace it with SAS-TEC that fit more snuggly than the piece of foam.

But SAS-TEC back armor is great stuff that can easily be made to fit into almost any jacket.

C.: Yes you can upgrade to SAS - Tec. I have a few RevIt jackets - Turbine, Ignition and Siren and have put a SAS-Tec back protector in all of them. Extreamly comfortable and I beleive the safest most protective option available for a back pad jacket insert. I think safest setup is a standalone back protector like Forcefield Sub Pro 4, bug since that is not always desirable or convenient, the SAS-Tec is by far a top choice. I had to trim the SAS-Tec with an Xacto knife for one of my jackets but it does not affect or diminish the safety / impact absorption properties of the pad. This was confirmed by the company. I just traced with a marker the orignal flimsy foam pad that came in the jackets and then trimmed where necessary to make it fit. It is a very worthwhile upgrade - the Re'It line is great quality and putting the CE Level 2 SAS-Rec in the back pad pocket is icing on the cake. Aug 22, 2011
Reply to C. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Stiggy: I would definitely suggest going with the sas-tec as the upgrade. now with that being said you will probably have to cut the sas-tec to fit in the pocket. but don't worry its very easy to do and will not degrade the ability of the protection in anyway. there is a size chart for the sas-tec. i went a size bigger which gave me enough material to make sure i could cut to size. i must enforce that you use what ever protection came with your jacket as a template to cut the sas-tec so you can make sure you get the right size. take your time and make adjustments to the sas-tec as needed. please do not try to eyeball it for you may cut too much off and you will not be able to exchange it.

VooDoo: I'm not familiar with the Air Force jacket but I have their Ignition jacket and I assume the back pocket is the same (Knox shape). If so you'll be able to use the SAS-TEC pad and trim it down. Just use the basic pad from your jacket as a template. Oct 3, 2011

A shopper asked: I just bought a Scorpion Helix jacket that has a foam back pad in it now, would this SAS-TEC protector fit? In the video on the jacket they said to get a KNOX back protector, but I would rather have the SAS-TEC. Thanks in advance. May 30, 2014

Allan S: I've put this excellent protector in several jackets from different manufacturers. It fits because it's easily trimable with a pair of decent sized scissors. If your Helix came with a back protector, just use it as a template. If not, try fitting it into the protector slot in the jacket and progressively trim it back so that it eventually fits.

RevZilla: Any jacket that normally takes the Dainese Wave can be fitted with the SAS-TEC 1/12 with some simple modifications. Make a template for the back protector pocket on your jacket and *trim the SAS-TEC as needed.

This can be done very easily, however there are 2 caveats:

1. You void the warranty on the back protecto
2. If you are in a prolonged downpour, since the internal foam is now exposed on the SAS-TEC it is possible it could absorb water. Make sure to air-dry it if you suspect it has had a good soak.

RevZilla: This protector is too big to fit into the Tornado in any size, however, it can be easily cut with an extremely sharp knife or pair of scissors. You can use the existing temporfoam in the jacket as a template your trimming. But take note that this will invalidate any warranty, though it will not comprimise the integrity of the armor.

RevZilla: To the best of our knowledge, no. REV'IT! and SAS-TEC, however, will vouch that the protective properties do not change; the only legitimate downsides are loss of surface area, compromised water barrier which could soak the protector in a heavy downpour, and voiding SAS-TEC's warranty.

However, any jacket that normally takes the Knox TP2 can be fitted with the SaS-Tec 1/12 with some simple modifications. Simply remove the temper foam back pad which came with your jacket and use it as a template to *trim as needed. This can be done very easily, however there are 2 caveats:
You void the warranty on the back protecto
If you are in a prolonged downpour, since the internal foam is now exposed on the SAS-TEC it is possible it could absorb water. Make sure to air-dry it if you suspect it has had a good soak.
*Per the manufacturer, cutting the back protector will not change its protective qualities.

JeffOnWheels: I don't know specifically, but I'd suggest just ordering a larger one than you think you need and cutting to fit. I ordered the small because it was closest to the piece of foam my jacket (not the tarmac) came with, but it was wider in spots and narrower in spots, I trimmed it a little but I might as well just have gotten the larger size and trimmed it to an exact fit.

The SAS-TEC is a uniform material the whole way through, so trimming a little vs. trimming a lot doesn't really make a difference.

Stiggy: from what i can tell from the suit you are going to have to cut the sas-tec in order to fit because of it shape. for the size i would suggest going with the SC-1/16. its the biggest one. i say the biggest one because its hard for me to tell how big of a pocket you have in your suit. this will also give you some extra material to cut. i went a size up from what was recommended and found it made cutting the sas-tec to size very easy. use whatever protector came with the suit as a template and just use a utility knife to cut. do not try to eyeball the cutting of the sas-tec. use what you have to make sure you get the right fit. hope this helps.

AliB: The Victory suit back protector pocket was designed to accommodate the Knox TP2 back protector, although most people who use the suit for the track wear a separate back protector. The SaS-Tec 1/12 size will fit in the back protector after some modification. You will need to trim off the notch that extends up the neck in order to make it fit. Oct 20, 2011

A shopper asked: How do the protective qualities of a SAS-TEC back pad compare to larger back pro systems? eg Tryonic Feel 3.7 Back Protector Dainese Paraschiena Wave Aug 30, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SAS-TEC Back Protector, Dainese Paraschiena Wave w/ Scapula Protection, and Tryonic Feel 3.7 Back Protector will all offer the same level of protection as they are all CE Level 2 certified. However, the SAS-TEC will not offer as much overall coverage when compared to the Paraschiena or the Tryonic Feel 3.7. Both the Paraschiena and the Feel 3.7 are quite a bit longer and cover more surface area. The one advantage that the SAS-TEC has to offer is the fact that it is a multi-impact back protector, whereas the other two are "one and done." One and done means that once the back protector has absorbed a certain amount of energy it is not longer usable and will not function as intended (will not offer the same amount of protection as an unused/undamaged back protector). Other than that, the 3.7 Feel and Paraschiena are both superior. Aug 30, 2012

K12RSGuy: Take the current back protector out of your jacket and match it up to the SAS Tec protector. Mark where you need to trim. With sissors or knife trim the new protector to fit. That's what I did for my Sand jacket. Dec 4, 2011
