  • PATENT TECHNOLOGY: polymer-encapsulated ceramic, and composite material on the back.
  • COMFORT: the multiaxial flexibility of the plates adapts to all types of morphology, hugs the contours of the torso and moves with the operator, simplifying tactical gestures and other everyday movements. especially in uncomfortable positions.
  • LEGERETE: the plates are lightweight, and the multiplication of points of contact with the body compared to a rigid plate reduces the weight felt.
  • PROTECTION: plates have unrivalled multi-impact performance against armor-piercing rounds. They are defined according to the highest army standards.
  • RUSTICITE: the ceramic is encapsulated in a polymer and protected from impact. The plates are robust, reliable and resistant to multiple daily aggressions as well as to water thanks to their waterproof cover.
  • UNISEX: plates suitable for both men and women. Flexibility will allow adjustment to all morphologies.
  • ADAPTABILITY: our flexible SAPI 25x30 cm ballistic plates fit all types of plate carriers.
  • TRAUMA: the composite materials used in the manufacture of the plates considerably reduce rear trauma, which we strive to limit to a maximum of 35 mm (the standard being 44 mm), and to 25 mm for armor-piercing calibers.
  • DURABILITY: thanks to the rounded edges, they'll no longer damage your plate carriers. The resistant pocket is welded and guaranteed waterproof.
  • STORAGE: plate storage is made easy: simply flat.
  • WARRANTY: the plates are guaranteed for 5 years on their ballistic performance.
  • FABRICATION in France in the workshops of the company Pangolin Défense in Violot (52).
  • FORMATS : Ballistic plates are sold individually, with the exception of side plates (side-plate) sold by the pair
