Product Details

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
  • 17.125" (H) x 7" (W) x 0.8" Thick
  • The Rukka warranty is valid for 2 (two) years from the date of purchase against faults in material or workmanship

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

Note: 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.

a great product !
I was impressed with the quality of construction and the design allowing for airflow. It fits well into the jacket, is unobtrusive and delivers that peace of mind of having your back protected .. I thought that it should have been inclusive with the Rukka air jacket

good pad
This is a serious back protector. D3O is great. My AiRider jacket came with no back pad at all so I got this one and it's like a big filet of salmon. Kind of heavy but like the other guy said it's OK when the jacket's on. It flows air better than other pads and really seems like it will do the trick in a wipeout. CE level 2 I think. Good price for the quality.

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.

Good choice for my Olympia Airglide 4 jacket
Swapped this in for the existing back protector in my Olympia Airglide 4 jacket. Wanted a little extra, although the jacket does come with a lot already. Felt heavy when I first put it in the pocket, but on the bike I didn't even notice it.<br><br>Good ventilation and extra peace of mind.

Comfortable Protection
Replaced the standard armor about 1500 miles ago in my Olympia MotoQuest Riding Suit with the RUKKA D30 and found better comfort and air flow along the back. In fact while the suit's armor was good I did not realize until I changed it that I knew it was there until I put the the RUKKA in. I had to check that I had in fact put it in as it seamlessly provided protection.

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.

Comfy, yet breathable!
Once I installed this protector into the AiRider jacket I was surprised at how well it fit. You can tell that a lot of thought went into how this armor fits into the jacket. It is a good width and fits comfortably in the jacket. It does only come to a little over half way down your back. I am 6 foot and I thought it would come further down my back. It does offer good airflow which I was glad for. The holes in the plate offer great ventilation.

It should be included with the purchase of the jacket
It is definitely a good product, however for a $430 jacket it is silly to charge another $50 for something so basic as a back protector.
