Poron®XRD™ IMPACT ABSORBERS
Imagine that up to 90% of impact force never reach your body. Sounds good, right? That’s because of high performing foams that rapidly hardens under the impact making kind of “forcefield”. On the other hand on molecule level material is able to re-distribute the impact force in many directions so the impact that gets out is dissipated on much larger area.
The special crease that can be found on the leather covering fingers facilitates precise operation of the gear stick. An irreplaceable item that everyone quickly appreciates.
