When the Badlands Pro was released to the Adventure Riding population over five years ago, it became a popular global travel companion for riders. And travel the world it did.
Badlands Pro now reigns as the undisputed riding gear of choice for the toughest rides in the harshest conditions. It is truly dependable, truly worthy of world travel and adventure from tarmac to dirt.
Today, KLIM launches an all-new Badlands Pro. And it wants you to conquer the globe with revolutionary intent.
Engineered with proprietary ride-enhancing tech, the new Badlands Pro redefines world-class riding gear. It is more user friendly, more comfortable, easier to live in for months at a time and provides higher levels of strength and safety than ever imagined.
The new Badlands Pro will inspire you to ride longer days to more epic destinations. It wants you to conquer every riding goal you’ve ever imagined. Badlands Pro wants you to ride the ride of your dreams.
From the inside out, KLIM has engineered the core of Badlands Pro DNA for the next epic trip. These newest pieces incorporate breakthroughs in; armor impact, armor coverage, and armor comfort performance, ventilation, storage, all-weather functionality, abrasion resistance, durability, and visibility.
Here’s how the all-new Badlands Pro is revolutionizing adventure riding, again.
KLIM was one of the first to use D3O®’s flexible armor technology in motorsports apparel. Since the initial use of off-the-shelf D3O® armor pieces, KLIM has worked in partnership with D3O® to refine its product offerings to meet the specific needs of motorcycle riders. From a wider temperature range of use to higher levels of CE impact certification, KLIM is constantly searching for the next armor system solutions. And over the last two years, they put their money where their armor was.
Conducting their own study on all currently available raw armor materials, KLIM’s product engineering team concluded via independent laboratory testing that nothing has more performance potential than D3O® across the widest range of conditions. These are conditions KLIM riders experience outside the lab. From cold to hot and wet to dry, the properties of the D3O® raw material are scientifically superb. But that wasn’t good enough.
Once D3O® proved itself as the material of choice, KLIM went to work perfecting it. From molecular to structural, what KLIM® and D3O® have now created is nothing short of revolutionary.
INTRODUCING KLIM D3O PRO ARMOUR
The new D3O AERO armor offers more coverage, better comfort and now meets Level 2 even at temperatures greater than 95° F.
KLIM D3O AERO PRO offers the most coverage and highest performance of any rider armor technology offered —passing CE Level 2 testing criteria across the gamut of temperature and moisture conditions. And it does this while ventilating 5X as much as the next best performing D3O with 44% more coverage.
KLIM D3O AERO PRO is the most ergonomically correct, highest performing, most well ventilated and widest covering Adventure Riding-specific impact armor available. It was designed by KLIM for one purpose — to serve the needs of world-class adventures.
Movement is an inherent part of the motorcycle experience and KLIM’s engineered exterior shell specifications intended to enhance this important component. For the Badlands Pro, one of the largest investments has been with Superfabric extreme abrasion panels placed on the highest abrasion zones. These custom-engineered, variable density fabric hybrids provide a combination of free movement and ironclad resistance. This is the tip-of-the-spear for off-the bike environmental contact and Superfabric® is placed in strategic locations to shed unwanted abrasion with absolute resilience.
Next, KLIM’s exclusive KARBONITE™ Ripstop panels back up Superfabric® in key impact and wear areas to provide high-mobility, yet extremely tough active fit patterning for a great combination of comfort and durability. To enhance movement and on-the-bike comfort in the face of the most durable exterior shell, KLIM engineers worked hard to incorporate user-friendly flexibility and intuitive ergonomic access to things like pockets and ventilation zippers. The high-spec fabric combinations, combined with articulated patterning bring a major upgrade to the comfort of the new Badlands Pro.
GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY
This promise is backed by the proven performance of KLIM’s use of motorsports-exclusive GORE-TEX® 3-Layer Pro Shell technology. According to the company, “only KLIM bonds the world’s most breathable and durable waterproof apparel technology directly to the outside of the most durable shell materials available. ”
KLIM’s GORE-TEX® integration ensures a dry, breathable and comfortable ride regardless of exterior conditions or how hard you work.
External weather conditions are only half of the comfort story on a ride. After all, when Adventure Riders encounter technical terrain, they heat up regardless of what the thermometer says. That’s why KLIM’s goal was to develop the most intelligent ventilation and comfort system for the all-new Badlands Pro.
Starting with the dynamic D3O AERO PRO armor’s open structure, airflow can now move completely through the best armor in the industry, cooling protected limbs in high exertion riding by expelling heat at newfound speeds. “We’re talking about a five time increase in ventilation potential in the highest-rated armor available,” says KLIM.
Further, KLIM engineered KLIMATEK COOL base layer fabric into the armor pockets of the Badlands Pro. This innovative cooling fabric utilizes chemical-free moisture transfer and cool evaporation technology that does not wear out over time. The result is a fabric with hyper-wicking properties and cooling your skin will feel next to jacket and pant armor.
DAY TO DAY FUNCTION
Living in your gear day in and day out gives you a very intimate experience of all its attributes and nuances. Traversing the globe – deserts, mountain ranges, and foreign cities bring unique challenges both on and off the bike. With that in mind, the new Badlands Pro incorporates a design with a day-to-day function to work intuitively with the rider.
The Badlands Pro also incorporates more hidden stash pockets and anti-odor properties. To combat foul odors and sweaty residue buildup, KLIM now incorporates Polygiene technology to the entire interior finish fabrics of the new Badlands Pro. This permanently bound fabric tech applies naturally occurring bacteria eliminating properties to fabrics, to eliminate the month-long riding stench before it starts.
