Exclusive: SEVEN IDP knee protectors + new M2 helmet

British company SEVEN IDP harvested a lot of attention at the last Eurobike with the help of their new knee protectors. Now, one year later, the products are almost ready to be introduced into the market. They have already been tested by the Enduro World Series racers of the Canyon Factory Racing Team. We had a closer look at the line-up and also discovered a new light-weight helmet – the SEVEN IDP M2.

SEVEN carries four different knee protectors in its portfolio.

Tactic is SEVEN’s flagship and weighs 228g. It is available in four different sizes (S-XL). The unique feature is that one can fix it to the leg with the help of the patented Boa System. It comes with neoprene and a flexzone, in order to reduce movement while pedaling and to let enough air reach the leg. The hard pad is made out of the same special material, that is used as floor protection in the Formula 1 series.

The SEVEN IDP Tactic knee protector is priced at 199 EUR.

The Control Knee protector comes with the flexzone above the knee and is available with the special hardcover pad. It doesn’t use the Boa system and therefore comes in at a lighter 180g. It is available in four sizes ranging from S to XL and will be priced at €139.

The Cover knee protector doesn’t need the hard outer shell, but comes with another interesting feature: It is available with various padding, which differentiate in hardness and can be easily replaced. Whether cross country or downhill, this protector should work for every application. It is available in four different sizes and is priced at €94.90.

The SEVEN Index knee protector can be seen as the introductory model. But even this prodcut comes with great features: like the breathable neoprene and the special hardshell padding on the outside. Again, there are four sizes priced from €94,90.

We also found a new helmet by SEVEN IDP: The M2 is priced at €109 and will be available in different colours in 2015. This is all the information we have so far.
