Rukka D3O Air Protectors May 24, 2015 14:56

D3O® is a smart, rate sensitive material – the stress vs. strain characteristics are dependent on the rate of loading. This means that the harder the impact, the greater the resistance to the force.

D3O® and Rukka worked together to develop a unique D3O® air material only for Rukka which was then used in the production of an exclusively designed range of Rukka limb and back protector components.


D3O® is a patented protective material that combines enhanced chemistry with product engineering to produce high performance shock absorption and impact protection solutions.

The material contains intelligent molecules that flow freely when moving but on shock lock together to absorb impact energy, instantly returning to their flexible state.


  • High performance shock absorbtion
  • Trusted protection
  • Maximum flexibility
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Tested to highest standards
  • Prevents the outer material from breaking and the user from skin damages

Rukka motorcycling outfits carry the patented breathable Rukka Air Protectors that meet the CE norms and function equally in all weather conditions.
