I wouldn't buy it. Theoretically it works better than foam but I don't think that it is better than CE approved hard shells. If the material is that good, why don't they prove it with motorcycle indursty standard EN tests? (which requires a maximum 9kN energy transmission on a standard crash) (I know I'm not giving specific test names and etc. but just google it)

And this simple funny test says they aren't better
d3o advanced motorcycle armour - trauma test
