Deuter Shield System
The main purpose of our Shield System is to minimize, or even to a
large extent, prevent injury occurring during risky sports. It’s a ‘smart’ protector
foam that remains soft and flexible in normal use, but upon
heavy impact the foam resistance grows with increasing speed. It
delivers excellent shock absorption and provides the basis for the
protective function. The foam returns to its original shape after the
deformation. This memory effect allows the protector’s use multiple
times. The typical V-shape of the construction covers the sensitive
areas of the back, whilst retaining the pack’s outstanding freedom
of movement. The high and close set anchor points of the hip wings
guarantee a super compact fit even on rough rides.
The TÜV-GS tested back system combines a comfortable
carry, outstanding ventilation in the free spaces between
the padding and maximum safety in the event of a fall.
