KEEPING WAA PROTEKTOR SKIN® PROTECTS YOU


WAA Protektor Skin® outfit is a real innovation. The set consists of a jersey and a revolutionary shorts. They are reinforced at the main impact areas for cyclists: shoulders and hips.

H2PE fiber®  protects against abrasion in the event of slips. It is perfectly integrated with the jersey and the shorts.

H2PA protections® absorbs shock in case of impact. With this Protektor Skin® concept, the WAA brand combines comfort, performance and protection!


HOW?

Months of development allowed WAA to develop 2 levels of protection with H2PE fiber® and H2PA protection®. The completely innovative H2PE fiber® effectively resists s abrasion. It tear-proof and protects you when your skin comes in contact with the ground in the event of slips.
H2PA protections® are composed of a flexible foam developed specifically to absorb shocks in case of impact.

The challenge of fusing these two technologies to the specificities of cycling and its natural body movements has been reached! All of our prototypes have been tested for several thousands of kilometers by a whole range of cyclists: from casual to professional athletes to ultra-endurance specialists.

Thanks to their involvement, the WAA outfit with the H2PE fiber® and the H2PA protections® make it ergonomic and suitable for sports practice.

WHO?

The WAA brand brings together passionate people from all over the world. It invests heavily in research and development because innovation is part of its DNA.
WAA relies on a strong community of athletes linked to the brand. These athletes are actively involved in product development to fully meet the demands of the sport.

A team of 15 people was involved in the development of the Protektor Skin® concept, who presented a wide range of skills: from designers, material engineers, modelers, product manager, athlete relations, production manager, and quality manager ...

The team was enthusiastically engaged during months to develop this world premiere! To offer a high performance cycling outfit that combines both efficiency and protection has been a challenge that has driven us to excellence.

WHY ?
Sports in the 21st century are becoming more athletic, demanding and traumatic for organizations. The majority of disciplines do not take safety lightly. A significant number of sports base their reputation on safety:

- Formula 1, with the cervical protectors, the halo ...

- Ice hockey, with limb and head protection

- Alpine skiing, with back protectors

Cycling as a whole is a sport full of innovation. However, it is one of the sports where the athlete remains the most vulnerable. He can easily exceed 70 km / h with his bike and only protection is from the helmet. But the dangers come with the terrain: wet roads, loose gravel, white street bands...


What protections do cyclist have in the event they slip ? Helmet and gloves of course ... and for the rest of the body? The cyclist was unprotected. This is what motivated WAA to innovate and bring additional security measures to cyclists. Thanks to the H2PE fiber®, the shoulders and hips are protected from road burns in the event of slipping. Thanks to the H2PA protections®, the intitial impact on these same areas is absorbed and distributed in the event of a slip.


FOR WHO?

For its launch, the WAA Protektor Skin® outfit is a spring / summer model for men. A female version will be released later in autumn / winter. It is aimed at all cyclists, whether casual or high-level, because safety is everyone's concern.

Loïc Léonardi, Ultra Bike rider and Ultra Trail - France

"I love it all! The fit and support are good, making the outfit comfortable. During the BikingMan in Corsica, I didn’t even feel the protectors. The chamois skin is firm, which is very useful on my long distance races. In addition, everyone finds the jersey very fresh".

Ben Psaila, IronMan triathlete - Uk

"The WAA Protecktor Skin® outfit unites the essential features for me: the 3 back pockets with reflective markings, comfortable shorts and a chic looking jersey ..."

Niels de Fraguier, crossing Finland and Norway on a hiking bike - End

"The technologies to further protect the athlete are downright good. This idea is interesting because in the event of a slide, it is sure that the duo shoulder-thigh duo are immediately impacted. It’s important to have an outfit that does not tear ... because the wounds mixing skin and textile are still the worst"

Thomas Deville, occasional cyclist - France

" I never thought of trying a set like this. The WAA Protecktor Skin® outfit is quite surprising. All protections fit well. I became quickly accustomed. Actually, the contribution of safety is such that it seems impossible for me to return to a more traditional bike outfit".

CROWDFUNDING?

With its athletes and community, WAA is a brand full of stories. The WAA Protektor Skin® outfit opens a new chapter. Take part in this extraordinary adventure!

WAA has always been a collaborative brand.
We embarked on a new project: a BIG project (yes, BIG in all capitals, SO BIG).

We are launching the WAA CYCLING LINE!

As we love challenges and "Impossible" is not part of our vocabulary, we decided to embark on the realization of an original cycling outfit that protects you in case of slips.

It's an innovation that marks a big step in our development. We've only been talking about this in WAA's yellow offices since our Waacolyte (aka WAA TEAM member) came up with the idea one morning.

You will obviously have a role to cross with us in this new course, and not a small one to say the least!

To move things along even faster, we are launching a Crowdfunding campaign, which is a participative funding.

In other words, it's up to you to decide if you want to this new outfit to see the light of day.
The prices displayed for the Crowdfunding period benefit from a discount of 20% compared to the public rate.
The release date for the public in general will be for the last trimester of 2018.

In return, the brand WAA is committed to trading your outfit for any slipping that has altered the reinforcements on the outfit.

Furthermore, we scratched our brains to come up with incredible benefits that you are sure to enjoy. Remember that there are limited amounts ... but you knew that already.

The cost of the packs includes only what is mentioned.

Any travel and/or accommodation are at your expense.

 

The future of the brand is in your hands.

We hope to tke this sport to a whole different dimension.

Friday, June 15 is the deadline to discover this new outfit and be a part of the BIG project.
