With ITD ProTec Torn Skin is History

Together with schoeller®, SCOTT developed ITD ProTec to provide higher abrasion resistance than regular fabrics.

SCOTT is proud to introduce the ITD ProTec Technology. This one of a kind blend of Carbon yarns and ceramic prints provides a fabric with very high abrasion resistance, especially in the case of high speed crashes.

In the racing scene, crashes at high speed happen all the time, normally not causing broken bones, but definitely tearing the skin. This mainly leads to gnarly infections and in most cases, a recovery period of 3 to 4 weeks.

In close cooperation with schoeller®, SCOTT developed the ITD ProTec-Technology, to provide a significantly higher abrasion resistance than regular fabrics. Inspired by the sailing industry, the knit Carbon yarns a ensure higher breakage strength, as well as an antibacterial effect. This combined with the ceramic printing on the fabric leads to high robustness and durability, even for crashes on asphalt at high speed.

In this video, you’ll see how our product developers compared classic fabric used by the bikewear industry to fabric featuring the new ITD ProTec technology. They used a belt sander to simulate the effect of a crash at high speed on an abrasive surface and wrapped two balloons with each fabric, which they then placed on the sander…

This special fabric has been tested for 2 years by Schoeller® with pro teams, as well as by SCOTT with in-house product testers. In addition to these on-field tests, an external laboratory analyzed the fabric with ITD ProTec-Technology and compared it to other normal fabrics used in the bikewear industry. Among the other positive results, it is now proven that fabrics featuring the ITD ProTec-Technology have significantly better strength and higher abrasion resistance protecting the rider’s skin from heavy abrasion in case of crashes.

Since 2015, SCOTT is proud to be the first bikewear brand to use schoeller® abrasion resistant inserts in its products, with the exclusive use of this technology during 2 years. You will find "ITD ProTec Technology" in the SCOTT RC Pro Tec men's outfit, as well as in a women's version and on two gloves for 2017.

The jury stated: «The very hard-wearing material in places where bikers are prone to injury is what makes this biker’s clothing special. As tests have already proved, the material offers effective protection from grazes. Furthermore, it’s very comfortable to wear.»
