Classically styled from afar, modern and technical close up. The T.ur collection combines legendary rally inspiration with the most advanced materials and technology available on the market today, resulting in superior protection. T.ur was one of the first brands to introduce the new D3O® LP2 PRO armour to the motorcycle clothing market – originally seen in the T.ur lineup launched in October last year, and now featuring in the new, Class AA-ranking J-ZERO jacket, recently announced at EICMA 2019.
“We’ve been working with Tucano Urbano for many years,” said Richard Harfoot, D3O® Motorsport Business Development Manager. “The Italian brand always brings out fantastically designed and made apparel. The new T.ur range is very unique and stands out from the crowd. D3O is proud to be involved with this new adventure.”
The new J-ZERO laminated jacket from T.ur has a modular 2-level protection system with a CE-certified, laminated outer shell, along with a hyperthermal padded inner jacket that can be worn separately. Not only does the J-ZERO feature D3O® LP2 Pro elbow and shoulder armour as standard, it also has pockets for CP1 D3O® CE protectors on the chest, and an Aero 3D mesh pocket to fit the D3O® VIPER PRO CE back protector.
Rachel Fuller, UK Country Manager of Tucano Urbano, said: “D3O is the most premium motorcycle armour brand in the market, so we’re really pleased that they chose to work alongside T.ur as a brand that holds high standards close to heart. Partnering with D3O is the perfect opportunity to highlight our modern approach to safety throughout the T.ur collection – the collaboration is a superb technical partnership that we are very proud of.”
The most advanced, breathable armour for riders, the D3O® LP2 Pro armour that features in the T.ur collection is certified to the highest level of impact protection – CE Level 2. The D3O® armour used is 40% more protective than the Level 2 CE-standard requires, whilst also offering additional advantages like a flexible fit and maximum ventilation. For all adventures, the Level 2 protection is guaranteed in all climates including ambient, wet, hot and cold conditions, meaning T.ur riders can go anywhere and be confident they are well protected.
Highly breathable with Tri-ventilation technology, the design of the D3O® LP2 Pro increases air passage and moisture flow from the body through the armour, so riders can stay cool in hot conditions. Thanks to the clever geometry of the armour, flexibility and fit has been optimised with soft, flexible materials with high shock absorbing properties, providing enhanced comfort so riders can keep their concentration on enjoying the ride.
For even more protection, the new J-ZERO jacket is constructed with extremely tough Oxford 600 CORDURA® fabric on the shoulder and outer sleeves to guarantee abrasion resistance, as well as Oxford 300 polyamide for lightness, comfort and wearability on the inner sleeves and chest. There are metal plates on the shoulders along with SUPERFABRIC® inserts on the elbows for outstanding abrasion, cut, puncture and flame resistance.
Not only for the J-ZERO jacket, Level 2 D3O® protection comes as standard across the entire T.ur lineup, including the J-ONE, J-ONE Lady, J-TWO and J-FOUR jackets, as well as the P-ZERO and P-ONE trousers that feature D3O® LP2 Pro knee armour with pockets to fit additional D3O® hip protection.
