MKX - second skin feel
The unique design and HexFlex construction of the MKX protectors makes this our lightest, most protective and breathable silicone protector ever.
We are moving the concept of protection from an "Exoskeleton" concept to a more form fitting "baselayer" or "second skin" concept, that is a true "Fit it and forget it" product. Movement is absolutely unrestricted when worn - and will truly allow progressive sports enthusiasts to test their limits, and push their riding to the next level.
At AMPLIFI we were unsatisfied with "off the shelf" solutions for back protectors - even so called "soft protectors" are not able to flex in 360 degrees, and are bulky and don't offer top level breathability. We wanted to create a product that feels like a "second skin" baselayer, but gives the safety that is expected of a top level protector.
The specific properties of the silicone based compound used creates a "liquid" feel when the protector is worn, developing the tessellating hex design with our materials engineers, reduces weight AND allows free movement of air and moisture through the protector - and only 10 mm thick for back protectors and 6 mm for limb protectors!
We know we’re not perfect, nobody is. However, every little bit counts, and it’s with this in mind that we’re proud to tell the story of Armourgel and it’s Zero Waste Production process. Every offcut, every spare millimeter of material that would otherwise be thrown away – is carefully collected and upcycled into brand new products! Zero Waste Production is the future, and we’re happy it started here.
