No Armor, they are skin. You can wear CE approved armor or a pressure suit underneath. The Traverse will be in Australia. Pricing in AUD$ will be around $395.00 for the Jacket and $375.00 for the pant with an offer on the suit.

Word is that they simply haven't chosen the armor type yet. Hopefully we'll hear this week which direction they'll head so we can get a stock number and price (unless it'll be a standard part of the suit, which would suit me just fine).

When speaking with Klim Canada back when I had that test suit I was told that depending on the market (location) it will come in the 3 flavours - D30, CE approved or nothing. I know in speaking with them last week, Canada will be getting D30 - no option. That may be different in the States, but as we get ours delivered from the US and that is how the entire shipment will come in to us.

I'd love to see some CE stuff in the pants and nothing in the jacket so you can throw a pressure suit underneath.

The specs on all the vendor's websites say that there are pockets for armor (even if armor is not actually included).

Seriously, how hard it it for you guys to buy the armor inserts that you want and stick them in? Off the top of my head, it is easy to buy the Good Stuff(Sas-tec, D3o, Tpro). A full set of Sas-tec for a jacket is ~$65 US.

Edit:Apparently you can buy Pro-safe pads too and they are cheaper than Sas-tec (if you buy separately, at least)

I asked the same thing on their FB page, this was the reply I got...

Hi Kelly,
I could tell you but I'd have to... well, not really. Yes, we have a lot of riding gear in the works you will be very excited about. As you can tell by the Traverse story, our build process is quite involved and it takes a lot of time to make KLIM-quality products. A big part of that is understanding the needs/wants of the end user up front. That's where you come in. I'll be in touch.

There are a lot of female riders out there, they just don't always make
themselves known around here because of stereotypes, leghumpers, and smart remarks such as yours.

The 2nd annual Chick Fest was held this year in Colorado and had a good turnout, 50+ female riders.

Oh, I know. I was being a little silly, but still, when you think about the costs involved with bringing a new suit to market, and doing it profitably, I think women are kind of S.O.L. Sure there are a lot of women riders, unfortunately, about 90% are immersed in the Harley culture.

Heck, Klim can barely even justify producing the Adventure Rally and the Traverse suits in different colours, much less cuts.
