The armor base layer meets the European cut resistance standard EN388-2016, Level 4 (of 5), meaning it gives the 2nd-highest level of laceration protection. Constructed entirely from a new kind of Dyneema® with added stretch, the Base Armor Tights improve protection over the legs. A double layer of Dyneema® in key areas covering the main arteries in the legs give extra protection in the areas where it is needed most.
The Base Armor is tailored for ski racers and gives a compression feel, while the addition of stretch ensures the tights move with the body. An elastic waistband ensures the base armor sits comfortably and securely for racing.
A new kind of Dyneema® with stretch has been developed specifically for POC. The material is 15x stronger than steel, giving advanced cut protection.
