Condition Black is made from 19 panels of ceraspace. This fabric is formed from 3D ceramic particles set in a flexible skin. The only material harder than ceraspace is diamonds. It can withstand repeated high-speed falls up to 75mph. Each of the panels are situated at predicted impact points to limit chances of rips exposing you to the elements.
In addition to ceraspace, Condition Black has a softshell with a NanoSphere coating. It combines a tough nylon face with thick fleece on the inside. The nano finish gives the softshell a textile surface like a microscopic mountain range. Water just runs off of it and dirt doesn’t stick. These features are just the tip of the iceberg.
