Official tests show that ProLife® far surpasses the protection standards set by the CE directive. The fabric used, elastomer, is the result of many years of research and development. A technological process is used to make the fabric microporous, with air in the microporous cells under high pressure but unable to escape. This treatment makes the fabric light, flexible, and exceptionally impact-resistant. REV'IT! has used the pre-shaped ProLife® 3D CE protector in REV'IT! motorcycle clothing since it was first introduced.
