High-tech protective equipment
For the first time ever, five international companies have teamed up to develop exclusive motorcycle protective clothing. Under the name of "Smart Rider's Outfit" (SRO), the project combines the highest level of comfort with maximum safety and modern communication and information technology. Responsible for the high-tech project are the Finnish clothing specialist rukka, boot manufacturer Frey Daytona, helmet manufacturer Schuberth as well as the Technical University of Tampere/Finland and the Nokia Research Center. The individual components are made from state-of-the-art materials and are designed to harmonise perfectly with each other. Further activities within the project are to integrate technologies such as night vision, anti-collision and other security systems, navigation and traffic information systems and even biosensory systems into the clothing. The first SRO product generation will make its debut in September this year at the Intermot trade fair in Munich.
